Suzuki Australia must have over-estimated demand for its new Katana as they are now selling the themed Arai helmet that was included with advanced orders.
All customers who ordered the new Katana online before the delivery date of 8 September 2019 also received a Katana-themed Arai QV-Pro helmet, valued at $995, with their bike delivery.
They say about 60 Katanas were sold before the first delivery of about 90.
We are not sure how many of these limited-edition Katana themed helmets are available through the Suzuki dealer network, but it seems they fell short of their demand in orders for the bike.
