2020 Suzuki Katana Arrival Date, Price and Colors: 4 Fast Facts

2020 Suzuki Katana Coming To America, Finally

The hype around the 2020 Suzuki Katana has had long legs. We first had a first look at the new Katana in October 2018. Our first ride was in March 2019 in Japan. We even showed you a Rizoma-customized 2020 Katana earlier this month.

Finally, the public can see, buy, and ride this highly anticipated heritage-based upright sportbike.

2020 Suzuki Katana Arrival Date, Price, and Colors First Look (4 Fast Facts)1. The 2020 Katana hits dealer showrooms in November 2019.

2. If you want to buy a Katana, the MSRP is $13,499.

3. There are two colors available for the 2020 Katana. We like the Metallic Mystic Silver, which recalls the look of the original 1982 Suzuki Katana. However, should silver not tickle your fancy, Solid Black is the alternative offered by Suzuki.

4. Suzuki has not announced a 2020 GSX-S1000 yet, so the Katana might be Suzuki’s only upright liter-class sportbike in the coming year.
