Participation from mainstream two-wheeler manufacturers have been low yet the Auto Expo 2020, and there were many lesser-known brands in the electric two-wheeler space.
The CNB Auto Expo Awards for Excellence acknowledged and rewarded the efforts of automakers with launches, designs, technologies, and more.
Even though there have been a lot of electric two-wheelers in competition for the Best Bike in the Auto Expo 2020, the Suzuki Katana was chosen unanimously for the award.
Suzuki Motorcycle India did not have any new Suzuki scooters or motorcycles on display at the 2020 Auto Expo, but the Suzuki Katana certainly the most talked-about bike at the Suzuki pavilion. The new Katana revives a famous 1980s brand and a model sold as a sport-tourer well into the 2000s.
The 2020 Suzuki Katana is based on the Suzuki GSX-S1000F and powered by the same 999cc, in-line four-cylinder engine which generates 147bhp of maximum power at 10,000rpm and 105Nm of peak torque at 9,500rpm.
While the Suzuki Katana just been shown at Auto Expo 2020, Suzuki India says the idea is to assess the response of the audience and see whether it launch in India in the future. If the response to the Suzuki Katana is positive, and visitors’ express interest, the company may consider introducing this model in India and assembled here for completely knocked down (CKD) kits to keep rating gorgeous for the Indian superbike lover.
The Suzuki Katana Price in India expected to be around Rs 12.00 lakh, and the company planning to unveil this motorcycle later this year.
