Don't own one

But did once have one for the day while my bike was in being worked on.

The first thing I noticed was how much you sit in the bike, as opposed to on top of it.

You feel sort of enveloped in it's bodywork which makes it feel almost like a faired bike.

Of course perfromance goes without saying.

It is a naked Hayabusa with the engine in a slightly different state of tune with more lower and midrange grunt.

Erm, like the Hayabusa doesn't have plenty of that already

:wacko:

The've been able to achieve this by taking a bit away from the top end.

I found it supremely capable and comfortable, and whilst I was riding it even thought it would make a good long distance tourer, but for it's lack of luggage carrying ability and of course pillion accomodation.

I have heard of people coming unstuck by fitting aftermarket silencers to replace the ugly OE items.

A mechanic I spoke to said you can't just bung em on.

People labour under a myth that EFI magically self compensates for reduced back pressure which it doesn't (always), and he's seen a few with burn't out exhaust valves as a result of fitting aftermarket cans without correctly setting up the efi by remapping, (Power commanders are good apparently).

The B King hasn't been a big success for Suzuki and there are some good deals to be had as a result.

If there's one thing I've learned about owning bikes no one else buys (and I've had a few), is that given time, when they become as rare as hens teeth, suddenly everyone wants one.

2010 Suzuki B-King

:laugh: I have wanted a B-King ever since their launch in 2007 I looked for a well cared for bike but in the end I could only find overpriced bikes , so I logged onto Suzuki's website and went through their dealer list one by one the dealers new and used bike stock I came to the  Ms and found a 2010 Black B-King  with 3 miles on the clock when purchased in 2010 it was placed in a Bike Collection ,it was as If the guy was meant to look after it until I could afford to buy it  I understand there was a lot of interested punters for this bike but I placed a deposit straight away.
