B-KING AR­RIVES BUT CAN IT MATCH THE HYPE?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Suzuki had stunned the mo­tor­cy­cle world with its brutish con­cept bike at the Tokyo Show in 2001. The B-king did the rounds, snarling and show­boat­ing with a su­per­charger ready to un­leash fire and brim­stone. Only, it took six years to ar­rive on the mar­ket and although it had a Hayabusa en­gine and 160bhp, it was lim­ited to 150mph and lacked a su­per­charger. The pro­duc­tion bike never re­ally lived up to the hype and ex­pec­ta­tion of the con­cept, but a de­cent used one will still set you back £6k.
