I own a 2001 Kat6 and find it very fulfilling. In my case, I couldn't afford alot of money but wanted something new to ride. For the price you can't really beat the Katana, but that is my opinion. Not only that, but the plastic looks great compared to the Katana's of yesterday. I get compliments every where I go by other riders and nonriders. Performance, well, that is something you are going to have to work on yourself. Off the showroom floor, the Kat is only pushing 80 horses and that is probably a forgiving number, again in my opinion. Never fear though it is an easy bike to add to. There are nonessentials that you can discard to lighten up this gangly beast(458 dry) and performance parts everywhere to give you some added horsepower. I've got good plans for mine.
In all I think that the Katana is a good bike for those of us who have been away from the road for awhile or the fairly new rider on the street. Oh yeah, it is pretty easy on my back too! Good ergos for a sport/tour. Good luck and endless waves!
