2007 Suzuki Bandit and B-King
The B-King Concept was first launched in 2001, now Suzuki promises that the radical B-King will be "the ultimate in naked bikes". The B-King it is powered by a Hayabusa engine with an even more headlines than the bike’s monster motor is its adventurous styling.
Details about B-King are scarce at the time but the bike will have an inverted fork, radial-mount brakes, artful aluminum swingarm and mini front fairing around the headlight. The absence of mirrors in the advance photos might indicate the B-King will have the concept’s rear-view camera.
The 2007 Bandit will be powered by a new 1255 cc liquid-cooled engine that’s surely a big leap forward over the hoary old Bandit engine. In addition to the liquid-cooling architecture, the physical size of the new mill is much shorter and more compact due to the vertical staggering of the transmission shafts and narrower spacing of the cylinders. The Bandit’s powerplant also features Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve fuel injection replacing the old Mikuni carburetion, and a secondary balance shaft helps reduce vibration.
