Suzuki B-King 2011 News and Pictures Review

 2011 Suzuki B-King 
Meet the Hayabusa's first cousin -the all-new B-King.
And while the Hayabusa is a sleek sophisticated, 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 engine is straight from the new Hayabusa and nowhere in the specifications or features do we read the dreaded "tuned for mid range power," it's the Hayabusa engine in the B-King chassis. There is, however, the S-DMS (Suzuki Drive Mode Selector), that allows the rider to choose from two different engine settings depending on riding conditions or rider preferences, perhaps the rider can choose mid range power if he wants it.

Compliant and reasonably well balanced under your average 165-pounder, the nicely adjustable Kayaba fork and shock are a bit too soft for bigger boys who like to go fast in the twisty bits. The steering damper belongs on somebody's patio door.
The B-King's frame is die-cast using the same technology as the latest GSX-Rs, varying wall thickness for optimal rigidity. A longer swingarm stretches the wheelbase 1.5 inches beyond a 'Busa's, yet the 'King is still 7 inches shorter than Mr. Max.

Though they generate impressive bite and feedback with nominal effort under normal riding, the 'King's radial-mount four-pot calipers make you squeeze hard after a few high-speed stops. Those 310mm floating rotors came straight from the Hayabusa parts bin. ABS is a $600 option.
