The 1980s were a pretty good decade for motorcycles though. Two-strokes still reigned supreme in grand prix racing, and some of America’s best two-wheeled heroes were riding them.
On the other side of the pond, the Classic TT at the Isle of Man is an event worth watching, and the bike we see here is ready for the Endurance Legends 4-Hour Race at Donington Park later this year.
It is a Suzuki GSX1000SD Katana, built by the Team Classic Suzuki outfit – a special factory racing team support by the Japanese manufacturer. It drips with an iconic 35-year-old design, with some modern world thinking as well. It’s tasty AF.
