The Suzuki Katana AY50 is a 50 Cubic metre Scooter (motorcycle) produced by Suzuki and sold primarily in Europe. starting in 1997. It is named for the Katana samurai sword, as well as the early 1980s motorcycle of the same name. As a result, the scooter was widely criticised by the motorcycle press and enthusiasts of the classic motorcycle over the name as for damaging credibility of the Katana name.
The designation "AY" indicates that it has a two-stroke engine (A) and that it is intended for use in urban areas (Y), see Suzuki Motorcycle Naming Conventions.
Some of the parts used on the Katana are clearly inspired by Racing. like the carbon-look Magneti-Marelli instruments and the Showa Corporation upside-down front suspension. A Motorcycle helmet can be stored in a space below the seat.
The powerplant of the Katana is a Two-stroke cycle engine with a Engine displacement of 49 cubic centimetres producing 2.43 kW. Being just below 50 cm 3. it is regarded as a Moped in most countries. In addition to the Engine cooling AY50, a liquid-cooled version designated the AY50R is produced.
As with most popular scooters and mopeds, many Aftermarket (automotive) modifications and replacement parts to increase acceleration and top speed exist. However, Engine tuning of 50 cm 3 vehicles is illegal in most countries.
