GSX1100S Katana

Suzuki GSX1100S Katana 1/6 scale by Tamiya. This bike introduced at the 1980 Cologne show contained styling cues that basically did for sport bikes what Maico did for MX rear suspension. It took designs that had remained more or less the same since the end of World War II and brought them forward with no looking back except for nostalgia. The 1/6 scale version of this model is my preference of the two as it produces an incredibly detailed build, albeit harder to display and store due to its size.
