‘Busa in the buff: 2008 Suzuki B-King

Ah, the Suzuki B-King. The rarer cousin of the Suzuki Hyabusa, the B-King is the juicehead king of the naked muscle bike segment, Suzuki’s answer to an unasked “what if …” The outward appearance of the B-King whiffs a little heavily of Axe body spray and hair plugs, but beneath lies a sharply put together street bike with a real mean streak.

2008 Suzuki B-King for sale on eBay

When the B-King rolled into dealerships in the mid-aughts, it drew praise for being all-day ride worthy, while still being a true tire-lifting hooligan with just a twist of the throttle. With 200-section tires and a wet weight nearing 600 pounds, it never really made any corner carving pretenses, but would cover a quarter mile in well under 10 seconds.

It’s probably for the best that the B-King didn’t make the sales figures that the Hyabusa did, as it really should be left to professionals and the truly idiotic courageous.

The 2008 Suzuki B-King here is very clean, but clearly was ridden, and has racked up a tick over 12,000 miles in its nine-year life. The bulky, distinctive stinger-stlye stock exhausts have been ditched for carbon Yoshimura mufflers, which should give it a nice bark.

As unsubtle and silly as the B-King truly is, there is sometimes no avoiding the fact that deep within me lies a knuckle-dragging redneck, and something about a 180-horsepower, power wheelie with a speedometer wakes up the urge to be That Guy at every stoplight between here and the honky tonk.

  • But, there’re no passenger pegs, and how do I hang my saddlebags?
    And shouldn’t there be a cup-holder?
