2008 Suzuki B-King Base


An illustration of the ""bigger is better"" theory, the 2008 Suzuki B-King is the largest and most powerful muscle bike ever manufactured. With an 11,000 rpm rev range and just under 160 horsepower, the 2008 Suzuki B-King’s immense power is delivered well though the precise throttle response of the Suzuki dual throttle valve (SDTV) fuel-injection system.

The B-King also boasts Suzuki’s exclusive drive mode selector (S-DMS), which enables the rider to modify the power output of the bike by selecting between two modes, full power ""A"" mode (the default setting) or ""B"" for a more controllable ride. The high-tech frame is unique to the B-King with and the adjustable suspension allows for separate high- and low-speed compression damping with adjustments for spring preload and compression and rebound damping.

Even though the 2008 Suzuki B-King is large, it is also surprisingly maneuverable, considering its five-foot wheel base and maintains good stability at any speed. That, coupled with reliable braking components, makes the 2008 Suzuki B-King a great choice for hard-core thrill seekers and weekend leisure canyon riders alike as the handling on curves is as precise as any good sport bike available on the market today.
