About this framed print...
The Suzuki Katana GSX1100S was a sensation when it appeared in 1981. The radical looks—designed by ex-BMW man Hans Muth—did more than challenge the status quo. It slapped a motorcycle glove in the face of the competition and set a new benchmark for sportsbike performance and poise.
With 111bhp exploding from its 1,100cc air-cooled, inline, four-cylinder, DOHC engine, the big Kat was capable of hitting around 132mph and closing the gap between 0-60mph in around 3.5 seconds. So okay, today these numbers are less impressive. But back in 1981, the Suzuki GSX1100S Katana wowed the motorcycle world and left most of the competition in the pits.
Anti-dive forks were part of the mix. And they worked—for a while, anyway. The black chrome pipes fought a rearguard campaign against corrosion (and ultimately lost). The seat fabric marked easily and aged poorly. And the plastic components and general finish could have been better. But for all that, this is a modern classic that spawned a new wave of bikes including lower capacity models in the Katana family such as the 998cc GSX1100SZ, and the 550cc, 650cc and 750cc pretenders. The influences of the Kool Kat is still with us.
This Suzuki Katana GS1100S print is mounted in a 225mm x 175mm x 16mm solid oak frame. The high quality image measures 203mm x 152mm (or 8-inches x 6-inches, if you prefer).
The print will hang on your wall, or sit nicely on your desk or shelf or mantelpiece. And in a group of four they look a whole lot better. Check our range of classic bike prints (below) and make your choice. We'll despatch yours as soon as we receive your order. They'll last for years.
