2020 Suzuki Katana

Suzuki will be at all eight Progressive International Motorcycle Shows (IMS) for the 38th consecutive year in 2019-2020 and will kick off the first event in Long Beach, CA with the first-ever U.S. demo ride of the 2020 KATANA! Along with the KATANA, Suzuki will be making its North American debut of the new V-Strom 1050 series.

Demo rides for the KATANA will be held on Saturday, Nov. 23 and Sunday, Nov. 24 and will be offered to licensed riders on a first come, first served basis. So, if you want to be one of the first lucky few to experience this new machine, you’ll want to arrive early!

In addition to their new model unveilings, Suzuki will also be offering a special program (Discover the Ride) for new riders to help them figure out which Suzuki model would be best suited for them. Riders participating in the program will receive $250 toward a purchase of a new Suzuki, as well as a $100 reimbursement on approved motorcycle riding courses.

Motorcycle racing fans will be treated to an up close and personal look at MotoGP racer Alex Rins’ Team Suzuki ECSTAR GSX-RR and M4 ECSTAR, as well as Suzuki’s Bobby Fong’s Moto-America Champion winning GSX-R600.

Consumers can also receive a $3 discount off one-day tickets purchased online by using the promo code “SUZ20.” To learn more about Suzuki’s 2020 motorcycle lineup, visit
