Hi all. Joined up today to see what this B-King thing is all about. I ride a genII busa at the moment but could be tempted to get a B-King. From what I've seen on the forum so far, a few mods can make the bike look very pleasing to the eye thumbs up 2

bare in mind we are now a collectors item as they have stopped making them now...


I've just sold my 09 Speed Triple cos it felt weird after riding the busa. I can't quite put my finger on it cos when I go out on my 03 ZRX it's great.

Any riding position comparisons between the busa and B-King would be helpfull.

Have they stopped making the B-King or just stopped importing to the UK?

i took the busa out but couldn't get on with the riding position ,couldn't lift my legs up that high and felt i was leaning forward to far, the king is a little more friendlier for a old one like me Embarassed And yes they have stopped making them

B-King lack's leg room if your tall.
You can gain some back with lower peg's
but that's something I try and avoid.

King pillion is awful compared the the Busa's
seat/pegs/grab rail.

I love the sit upright position on the King.
No drama doing speed or distance, although
some of the ladies on here have been know
to hide behind ugly bolt on screen's...... Wink

B-King doesnt suit everyone, but if you can afford
one as a 2nd bike or if it DOES suit you,
it's a LOT of fun.
