Cycle World, Feb 1983

 1983, The AMA has reduced their Superbike class to 750cc, so the US got a full size Katana. Other changes included a black engine, blue paint and stripes on the fairing and tank, aluminum footpegs and new style mags... There was also softer suspension and a 150 mph speedometer.

That is John Ulrich copping a squat on the Katana, if I'm not mistaken.

Exactly! Pictures in the article from other angles confirm that (or at least that they're Ulrichs leathers:-)
