    Whilst negotiations regarding trade levies and imposts on imported motorcycles were occuring in the USA, one of the Japanese Suzuki negotiators spent may dollars on higher classed women than Hugh Grant did whilst in the USA..

    Thus, when once again, much Jack Daniels had been consumed (I can confirm that for a season in the mid 80's this was the drink of choice for many of the top Jap execs, having been in their company back in my old racing days), it became obvious that his exploits with two women needed to be told whilst in the Sauna of the hotel.

    Thus, whilst struggling to name the new model bike from Suzuki, the tales of legendary bed time bonanzas with blonde, big breasted round eyes was also being told..

    So, the name katana was arrived at whilst an absolutely blotto Jap on jack Daniels was expounding and expanding the tales of his bedtime exploits with the two big breasted blonde round eyes, kate-n-anna..

    Which when slurred in japlish whilst under the influence of JD, soon became the story of the legendary night with kat anna.. Which of course, soon became the name for the new bike, the Katana.. Referring to the night when even though drunk, he managed to bonk doubley, with his sword! So kate-n-anna soon became legends of the drunken double edged sword!

    I mean it, this is all true.. Would I lie to you?

    It happened exactly as I am telling it to you now, whilst standing on the surface of mars, enjoying the view
    THIS HAS GOT TO THE WINNER just edit the mars out

    I'm with grant on this one.. hahaha... Almost had me convinced too...
    'Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, Scotch in one hand - Chocolate in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!'

    The way I understand it, it was simply the fashion at the time. The GPZ900R (AX900) was named the Ninja back in 84 (which soon caught on about the world). It was simply an answer to Susuki's "Katana" name. They wanted something cooler, and found it.

    Not as exciting or interesting as that other story, but hey, I think this one is how the name came about.
