I have tried to tell the Suzuki GSX 400 S Katana model history on this page as I know it. I would be grateful of any contributions — sales brochures, magazine ads, magazine articles, pictures, specs, facts, corrections etc. Please scan the material in JPEG format (large enough that all the details are visible) and send them to me. Please tell me the source and the publication date if possible. If you send me pictures of your own bike, please follow these instructions.

All the larger motorcycles made for the Japanese home market are power restricted.
Prior to 1993 the maximum horsepower were the following:
  250cc class: 45hp
  400cc class: 59 hp
  750cc class: 77 hp
  over 750cc: not allowed

The new limits for the models built in 1993 and after, were:
  250cc class: 40hp
  400cc class: 53 hp
  750cc class: 77 hp
  over 750cc: allowed, but restricted to 100 hp.

Bikes with more powerful engines are and were made for export only. However, if a Japanese private person wants to buy an unrestricted bike, they are allowed to import it from another country by themselves for private use...
