Suzuki B King Concept

Hayabusa by now is such a provocative instantly recognised with Its ten years now since 1998 the bike was unveiled for the first 2008 is once again a for speed and the Hayabusa does not Suzuki even offers a version now and we’re not sure one we’d rather keep!

Both bikes now feature the torque laden in-line They are both easy to be about and that’s not always the for Japanese metal! In the seat of two there’s never any doubt you are controlling extraordinary and pure

I spent nearly two weeks on the first and on my first motorway I simply had to stop to have an look at this fantastic of machinery before continuing the home. In the seat I feel in over this massive of compact metal with out of this world. The B-King is a superstar with an extremely torque curve.

The first is overwhelming and filled with a lot endorphins even than the own GSX-R1000 which by any means is no

Then in the seat of the mighty new there are similar feelings the engine, but the Hayabusa has been for a different purpose than the Here it’s the shear horsepower driven speed that awakens. More in the top end allows for a motorcycle that at a rate that must be to be believed. The Hayabusa is a much sport biased package, but comfortable.

Already after my few miles on the 08 ‘Busa I feel it’s a better and more road bike than any of the There are no doubts in my mind, the massive torque output makes both Suzuki’s such a joy to ride.

Out on the B roads I a constant feeling that I utilize the Hayabusa’s full but riding the torque laden is still exhilarating enough. A of the days I was out in the English country I was caught out by torrential rain Out of all of Suzuki’s sport models, the is the one where the mode switch really comes in handy often on the roads.

You really don’t want to any “throttle” mistakes when out in weather conditions on the big ‘Busa. So B or C it is then that controls the torque output.

On The B-King I encounter the same weather, but I lots of time on my favourite It’s a blast and rarely I ridden a motorcycle where my are stretched as much by the force of The wide upright handlebars put you in but the front is still very Steering is a wee bit heavy actually, but the I went the better it felt.

plenty of sporting capability in the big king.

The Hayabusa on the other has more of a forward riding You would have thought a 193 horsepower motorcycle would be a bit prone, but not the Hayabusa as it retains its in true drag racer No problem getting the beast up on one you wish to though. This pretty much for the B-King as as the chassis is almost identical.

have not altered the torque too much on the B-King either, a little bit more a little bit and less power on top as a result.

They are both very at high speed as you would but really on the B-King I was suffering when trying the high capabilities for too long at a time. The on a … is that you really the acceleration and speed more on body. The Hayabusa features one of the comprehensive fairings available on the and it’s almost quiet the windscreen compared to the B-King got nothing.

On UK’s windy the Hayabusa suffered a bit from wind from time to Just look at the side on the Hayabusa and you’ll understand At times I felt that the rear end was being pushed a bit so that I had to compensate on the steering. It put me off a bit any high speed antics day at least.

Whilst riding the on the same motorways there’s of these symptoms and it’s your own physical neck and arm that prohibits you. a strange feeling riding the on the motorway actually as you feel sat on this highly potent lump of metal just you forward at a relentless never pace. The Hayabusa strangely feels much more despite the fact that a faster motorcycle.

The B-King can’t do anything the Hayabusa can’t, apart give you a completely different experience. I’m not sure which one I as they are so different, but I guess I’m towards the whole experience on the Perhaps I should start to the King as the B-road King. back on those B-roads I more likely to use more of the from that great

There are a couple of crucial apart from the lack of on the B-King. The B-King features a friendly 200mm rear whilst the Hayabusa features a lean friendly 190. And being a … version none of that comprehensive the B-King weighs in at a claimed 15 more than the Hayabusa.

The with its more powerful top end features a 21 litre fuel whilst the B-King has to settle for a 16.5 litre one. The comprehensive instrument panel had to give way for a stylish and smaller unit on the B-King. Riding in the the blue back light just as cool as the red on the Hayabusa. height is the same 805mm on

The Hayabusa with its more on top version of the 1340cc engine are the more practical of the two.

a motorcycle features as much raw as these two gents, then you very good stoppers So the brakes are the latest Tokico mounted four pot callipers. the Hayabusa and B-King have stable front ends full confidence in the front end is quickly and particularly with forces in mind. Suspension front and back is fully both front and back on bikes.

It is nice actually to see a top spec … out of the crate Suzuki. All too often nakeds budget bikes from but not the B-King. Here in old Blighty the actually carries a recommended price at one pound Sterling than the Hayabusa.

The B-King more value for money as compared to the Hayabusa, but there is there that makes me again towards the B-King.


These two heavyweights Suzuki really are two of the most motorcycles on the market. Suzuki how to create exciting motorcycles and some honour for bringing the out to the market. I guess you could say the about the Hayabusa, but during the 10 years we have gotten to its quirky looks and mind top speed. All I can say about the Hayabusa is the 2008 version really a very decent upgrade previous years.

That engine that sits in bikes are solely responsible for me hooked on them both, but I I’d choose the B-King myself for the exhilaration at not so exciting speeds.

Stable chassis and good
