Your votes bring B-King closer to production

Your responses through this site and at the MCN Ally Pally show look likely to inspire Suzuki to put the B-King into production.

Your initial approval of the Hayabusa-powered prototype encouraged Suzuki to show the bike at the Ally Pally show. More research conducted among visitors there have proved even more encouraging.

Some 96 per cent of those surveyed said they wanted a version of the B-King to be made available. 400 visitors were involved.

Now all of your comments and views have been collected together and sent directly to Suzuki Japan for a final decision.

" The comments were very positive, " said a Suzuki spokesman, " we expect to hear an announcement within the next few weeks. "

It’s likely that if the bike does go into production it will be in its 175bhp normally aspirated guise rather than the supercharged 250bhp version, which could have cost up to £16,000.
