Last Updated : 02 July 2012

This page is a comparison between the original Suzuki B-King GSX1300BK versus the 2nd generation Suzuki Hayabusa specifications and performance!  The Suzuki B-King could be called a naked version of the 2nd generation Hayabusa but it is more than that.  Originally a concept motorcycle at various motorcycle shows since 2001 it was finally revealed as a production model for 2008 at the 2007 Tokyo Motorshow.  (I was there!)

The B-King is NOT just an un-faired or naked version of the Hayabusa.  It has a new frame, swingarm and key geometry changes but shares the engine some suspension components, brake parts and other bits and pieces.

As far as performance between the B-King and Hayabusa its probably exactly the same until the air resistance prevents you from physically going any faster when on the B-King.  The engine has been de-tuned slightly and has selectable engine mapping to decrease performance even further.  Personally I don't understand why the original de-tuning was necessary since it already has S-DMS modes! Nonetheless if you want a pre-made Hayabusa engined naked bike (and a very nice one at that) this is the one to get. It is probably the fastest version out there so do get it purely for that reason and you'll be happy!

As for style and looks I do not think is is anything special (feel free to disagree) it is too conservative for that! I say this because the naked bikes, specifically from the Italian marques come out of the factory looking like custom bikes already.  Just visit the MV Augusta and Ducati website for examples.  While they look good though they are missing the HUGE power of a Hayabusa engine. That said the B-King is clearly a modders dream since so much more can be done to lift its looks.

There aren't many competitors in the brute power naked class, the only one I can think of is the new but limited edition Yamaha V-Max.  Regardless of which one you choose you will be happy.

Note: Specifications are from the Tokyo Motorshow information and Hayabusa manual.  I haven't ridden a B-King at the time of writing this comparison.

Check out the other specification pages for mores details.
