BI-DIRECTIONAL QUICK SHIFT SYSTEM
This feature lets you shift up or down more quickly and easily without the need to operate the clutch or throttle. When activated, Quick Shift automatically interrupts power delivery just long enough to produce smoother, almost uninterrupted acceleration when you shift up. When decelerating, the system automatically opens the throttle valves just enough to increase rpm and match engine speed to the next-lower gear ratio. The result of this hands-free automatic blipping function combines seamlessly with engine braking to create a highly satisfying experience when downshifting. Bi-directional Quick Shift works in unison with SDMS to bring you even greater riding fun with a more linear feel.
The Katana uses a collection of advanced electronic systems that comprise the Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (SIRS). These enable the rider to optimise performance characteristics to best suit riding conditions and varying road surfaces, as well as their level of confidence and experience. These benefit the rider by instilling greater confidence and allowing them to concentrate on enjoying the riding experience.
