B*tchin B-King

Discussion in 'Bike Reviews, Questions and Suggestions' started by pro-pilot, Nov 15, 2007.

  1. Test rode the B-King today and all I can say is figging awsome!. The selectable maps really make a good addition, depending on your mood at the time! :twisted:

    Will be looking at the new busa when its released and make a comparision. Looks like the on-road cost wont be too much difference.
    Handling of this bike is great and throttle response is majic.

    I am still to find out if the engine is just a de-tuned busa unit or a lower performance one!?

    Can be picked up for around $19k on road.

    Problem is, so many new bike coming out and not enough garage space! :LOL:

  2. Check out the latest (in Australia) Bike Magazine. They reckon it's the same motor - not detuned, not lower performance - the same.
  3. In Two Wheels' test, they said it's exactly the same, just detuned by 7.5kw, to ~135kw. So just chuck a Power Commander and new zorst on it and you'll get it back.
  4. Solution: a big bike shed
