The Suzuki B-King is a naked bike manufactured by Suzuki,[1] that was unveiled in 2007.[2][3] It uses the same 1,340 cc (82 cu in) engine that is fitted to the Hayabusa, but with different exhaust and inlet systems.[3]

The B-King was originally revealed in 2001 as a concept show bike powered by a supercharged Hayabusa engine and fitted with a 240 section rear tire.[4]
