B-King didnt make the 09 lineup

Suzukis B-King didn't make the cut for the 2009 lineup, they didn't replace it with anything, they just got rid of it all together so it seems....




Yuup, its gone

Though I'd never buy one, it was nice to see something different(if not ugly) running around town.

Ohh well, guess they will be collectors items now and probably look cool in another 5 years or soo.

I hope they realize its lack of sales had less to do with the market, and more to do with its gaudy design.

Doubtful,
they will probably just assume us americano's don't like any standard without a bunch of chrome and leather saddle bags on it.
Probably follow honda's lead and start sending all the good stuff to europe.

I hadn't ridden one but I imagine the lack of fairings and power it provides is quite a different experience.

With that motor it can become one bad*ss streetfighter. It may be a cheap pickup for a '08 leftover model at the stealership.
