Classic Motorcycle Mechanics  |  385 November 2019  


What bikes for you, changed things entirely? I’m talking about bikes where – sometimes just the look – made your jaw drop. For many, the Suzuki Katana did just that. Here was a machine which was (after all) pretty much an existing model, but one which with some European design influence was elevated on to a completely different plane.

The balance between form over function is a fine line and it’s interesting to hear what our testers think when comparing both old and new Suzuki Katanas. I have to echo this. .. read more What is wrong with manufacturers of retro machines, that they have to cut down the rear end of a bike and give it naff all practicality? Both old and new Kats were and are variations on existing themes/machines and some of the best-loved bikes have also been
the same. Think of Honda’s 1997 Hornet, which was a spine-framed CBR600F, with a de-tuned motor, simplified suspension and brakes, but a machine which spawned a superb racing class and served as a basis for a wide range of wonderful specials and was much loved.

Conversely, Honda’s X-11 was based on the brilliant Blackbird, but wasn’t so admired! Now, I may not be popular when I say this, but, for me, one of the jaw-droppers of recent years was 2001’s Harley-Davidson VRSC V-Rod. I was on the launch in California. Expecting a normal air-cooled cruiser, when the covers were lifted we were gobsmacked! Great bikes linked with beautiful design often do that… and long may it continue!  read less
