A two-part teaser for all you hard-core Suzuki riders and motorcycles buffs.

1) What does "Katana" mean/is ?

2) With "It's" meaning, what does the 600, 750 & 1100 models signify or represent ?

Good Luck!

I think Katanas (one-edged sword) were only allowed to be carried by samurais in feudal Japan.

Umm, i would guess the #s represent the engine displacements as Schpreck said or the length, in mm, of each blade a samurai was supposed to carry?:confused:

Schpreck & Always Newbie good collective effort! :D :thumb:

The "katana" is the "sword" made most famous by the Samurai discipline. Whereas the motorcycles displacements may also be referred to the three "sizes" or sword "lengths".

600cc = "Small" or "Short" Blade
750cc = "Intermediate" or "Middle" Blade
1100cc = "Long" Blade or "Long" Sword

Blade lengths from a bit more than 13" to lengths of more than 30".

Hai!
