2008 Suzuki B-King GSX1300BK

Meet the Hayabusa’s first cousin -the all-new B-King. And while 2008 B-KING the Hayabusa is a sleek sophisticate, the B-King is its rowdy alter ego. Its aggressive styling gives it an attitude that simply says, “Don’t mess with me.” Featuring a slightly modified version of the 2008 Hayabusa’s new engine, complemented by state-of-the-art chassis and suspension systems, the B-King offers incredible all-around capabilities – breathtaking acceleration matched by precise, responsive handling. The performance differences between the two bikes are minimal. The B-King has its own valve dimensions to produce smooth, extraordinarily strong low-end power. And it has some unique chassis components, such as its finely crafted swing arm. The real difference, though, is styling. The B-King’s imposing engine is out there for all the world to see. One look at its twin exhaust pipes is enough to know that it has the power to reward you with a one-of-a-kind sport riding experience. The new B-King -you’ve never ridden anything like it.
