Cool Motorcycles

What is it about motorcycles that have always intrigued me? Is it the guttural growl when you rev that throttle? The beautiful, smooth curves of the machine? Or is it just having a 1000cc, 160HP monster tucked between your legs?

Text and specs taken from the official Suzuki website

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.

New Engine

  • S-DMS (Suzuki Drive Mode Selector) allows the rider to choose from two different engine settings depending on riding conditions or rider preferences.
  • Lightweight titanium intake and exhaust valves with narrow 14 degree valve angle for high combustion chamber efficiency.
  • High efficiency curved radiator now features dual electric fans controlled by the ECM for increased cooling capacity. Oil cooler now has 10 rows cores for increased heat dissipation.
  • 32 bit ECU boasts 1024 ROM for high overall performance and to control new functions like S-DMS.
  • Ventilation holes at the cylinder skirt for reduced pumping losses and increased overall performance.
  • Uniquely styled exhaust system enhances the powerful styling of the B-King.
  • Large volume 4-into-2-into-1 exhaust system with a large capacity catalyzer, oxygen sensors and an oval cross section canister with dual openings that meets Euro 3 and Tier 2 regulation.
  • The Suzuki Exhaust Tuning (SET) valve is built into the mid-pipe for optimum exhaust efficiency.
  • Slick shifting 6 speed transmission working in conjunction with an innovative back torque limiting clutch for smooth and controlled downshifts.
  • Ion plating treatment utilizing PVD (physical vapor deposit) method is applied to piston rings providing a smoother surface treatment for increased durability, reduced friction loss and reduced oil consumption.

New Chassis

  • All-new Twin-spar cast aluminum alloy frame features optimum rigidity balance and superb handling.
  • All-new cast aluminum alloy swingarm for the B-King is constructed of 3 main sections for minimal welding lines and a clean overall look.
  • New KYB inverted front forks are specifically designed for the B-King and are fully adjustable for compression, rebound damping and spring preload to suit rider preferences.
  • New aluminum alloy rear shock absorber features three-way adjustability with excellent damping characteristics equivalent to those of Suzuki supersport models.
