The Suzuki B-King was introduced a few years ago on a market apparently eager for a naked version of the notorious Hayabusa, but the sales charts have disappointed Suzuki and the project represents too much of an investment for them to simply discontinue it, so the solution is to make it more attractive for potential buyers. That goal appears to be accomplished on the 2010 model year, which gets a nice blue/white color scheme and 1970s style gold rims.

This is the only bit of information about the 1300cc Japanese naked, but the bike appears to be unchanged apart from that. Sure, you all could have lived with shorter silencers, but Suzuki is keen on the rocket-launcher ones, so that’s what you’ll keep on getting.

It is not yet confirmed if the flashy color scheme will be available for bikes shipped over to the US and the price will be announced.

Love the wheels, dude the gold rims are very good. The appearance is very strong. It is one great Suzuki model.

the previous one was a Model Year 2009/10 bike produced for 2009. This bike is a model 2010/11 bike produced for 2010. As far as I know, no more of the 15th Anniversary (JB Sig, Watch) are produced, but there are some unregistered ones in dealers.

I don’t care what color it is, it’s still ugly as s#*t. The corp. idiot who thought " I know! Let’s take the baddest performance production bike, the Hayabusa, & make it the uglest naked bike imaginable!" should be shot.
