The best way to think about the Suzuki B-King is to consider it a naked version of the famous Hayabusa. Sold only for one year in the US, it features the 2nd generation, 1340cc Hayabusa engine that was retuned for more mid-range torque. When it was unveiled to the world as a prototype, this bike featured a 240 section rear tire and a supercharger! Unfortunately, both of those features were dropped for production.
The Suzuki B-King is only 10 hp down on the Busa, and it was designed to be an impressive stoplight dragster. Weighing nearly 600 pounds, it’s simply a muscle bike that will provide incredible acceleration, no matter what gear you’re in. All that said – it’s not a pretty bike. It’s got too much of the “robot alien” look for me, and the original exhausts stuck out laughably far from the back.
These are already hard to find as one-year only bikes, but this example (VIN: JS1GX71A682101533, Engine #: X702-105167) is even rare as it has never been ridden and shows zero miles on the odometer. The seller is the original owner – he purchased it from Suzuki of Winston-Salem in March of 2010.
