I rode my 2000 Katana with a guy who had a 93 1100 katana and was right there with him in the twisties, but he walked off in the straight-aways. I LOVE mine and I am silently learning to master this bad boy, then I'll advance to a liter bike and really spank some butt!
They sport low re-sale because of the bad rep the gixxer boys and R1 riders tend to label them with. They are by no means a squids bike. i.e. no wheelies, burnouts, stoplight to stoplight pavment blistering action, but dependable everyday riders that will stick to you.
Great 1st, 2nd, or like me a 3rd bike on the learning tree. Helps you decide whats next thats for sure!!
