B-King tech specs are non-existent at this time. Suzuki staff did not take questions regarding the model, and we weren't allowed to view the prototypes up-close. After completing the second day of testing on the new GSX-R1000, Suzuki officials announced a "special surprise" for journalists and herded us onto a minibus. Someone suggested that maybe we were headed to Phillip Island's go-kart track for a few laps; instead, the minibus continued down hot pit lane and merged onto the racecourse. When we got to Doohan Corner a pair of riders dressed in black, (one was certainly Murata-san, Suzuki's lead test rider, judging from his blistering pace) emerged from the paddock on the B-King prototypes and lapped the bus twice each, allowing us four brief glimpses of the bike at speed without getting close enough to see any significant details or take any photos.
