Suzuki has debuted a new special Katana edition of the Swift Sport at the Tokyo Auto Salon this year, paying tribute to their iconic and recently revived Katana motorcycle.
This is not Suzuki’s first Swift Sport Katana edition, as the Japanese automaker had revealed a limited production model last year exclusively for Holland, but this one dials it up a few notches through a wide-body kit with flared fenders.
The new Swift Sport Katana Edition features the same silver color with the bike, along with plenty of vibrant red and black detailing, including the roof, that further boosts the visual presence of the new body kit.
Speaking of which, we get a new front bumper that matches the extra width of the flared fenders. The rear end gets a similar treatment with a new bumper that integrates a set of bigger tailpipes.
Seating underneath those sweet flares are new wider alloys finished in black with a red lip and shod in sticky Yokohama tires. A set of fatter side sills along with a bigger roof wing, smoked lights all around and a set of decals completes the visual changes on the outside.
The interior gets a special gradient titanium trim on the dashboard, the door cards and the center console that’s reminiscent of a heated muffler, along with red stitching on the seats, the steering wheel and the gear lever. A special plaque in front of the passenger with the Katana logo is also present.
Suzuki didn’t mention any powertrain upgrades hiding under the bonnet as of the time of writing, with the regular Swift Sport motivated by a turbocharged 1.4-liter Boosterjet four-cylinder engine producing 138hp and 169lb-ft (230Nm) of torque and paired to a six-speed manual transmission.
The bike-inspired Swift Sport appears to be sitting on an upgraded suspension, while the wheels reveal more capable brakes as well.
