Suzuki GSX1300 B-King 2012 Specifications


Meet the Hayabusa’s first cousin, the Suzuki GSX1300 B-King 2012. And while the Hayabusa is a sleek sophisticate, the B-King is its rowdy alter ego that is packing the same power-packed engine as the Hayabusa. Its aggressive styling gives it an attitude that simply says, Don’t mess with me.

History of the Suzuki GSX1300 B-King
The Suzuki B-King, a naked muscle bike with attitude, first shown as a concept model in 2001. The concept becomes reality. Unveiled in concept form at the 2001 Tokyo Motor Show, the B-King is Suzuki’s flagship big naked bike. The production model is completely faithful to the concept seen in 2001 but embodies new functions such as S-DMS, and performance advances that make it even more appealing to riders. Strikingly distinctive body styling gives the B-King overwhelming visual presence, and Suzuki’s latest performance technologies give it a motorcycle with powerful styling to match its strong personality. Built with genuine Suzuki DNA.
