|Suzuki New Katana GSX750S - Canadian version
This model is part of a collection of Suzuki Katana motorcycles and was built pretty much out of the box.
In late 2017, I had the custom decals for the Canadian version made and added to the model. These consisted of a small
Canadian maple leaf symbol, surrounded by lettering and a unique serial number that was assigned to each bike sold in Canada.
The updated model was displayed at the Motorcycle Supershow, where an owner of one of the bikes pointed out to me that the
Canadian versions did not have the integrated turn signals in the front fairing and rear taillight. Sure enough, some Internet
photos showed this to be the case, so these were added and the existing turn signals blacked out with gloss black paint.
