The Suzuki Katana (AY50) has been produced since 1997.
The Suzuki Katana uses a 50cc liquid-cooled engine produced by Moto Morini. Suzuki's intention with the Katana was to produce a sporty scooter, with the Katana getting its inspiration from from Suzuki's racing background and with its Showa front forks, 12 inch wheels along with front and rear hydraulic disc brakes the Katana achieves this. The Suzuki Katana derives its name from the Japanese Samurai sword the katana. Production of the Katana was cut in 2006.
