You guys blasting the B-King don't know squat. Ugly? That's subjective. All I know is that it's the baddest mother f'er I've ever ridden, and I've been on a ton of big litre muscle bikes. This thing is insane. Will power wheelie through the first 3 gears, what out there is faster? Not much. Here's mine:

This thing will run LOW 10's right out of the box, I've seen upper 9's posted on the forum with a few mods. Check it out:

B-King didnt make the 09 lineup

Was this recent? If so, I bet someone could get a great deal on one.

Couple months ago. I was finding them on Cycle trader for around $10K. Just checked and I found 2 zero miles units, one 08 in SC for $10800, and another much closer in Kenner LA for $9800.

I got a zero mile 2010 ZX14 for $10500 a couple months ago. There's some deals out there.

Houston Superbikes has some zero miles Millies for around $10K too.

Too bad Suzuki didn't stick to their guns. The B-King was supposed to be supercharged - hence the 'B' for boost - and look much sleeker:

I definitely would have bought the 2001 concept version:

Not much more than one year ago there were plenty of brand new leftover B-King's being firesaled on Ebay for as low as $7,300. Yes $7,300 is correct, I was very tempted to buy one just because of the price. But didn't have the cash at the time so would have had to finance it. However insurance for it with required collision coverage due to loan was an additional $2,100 a year on top of my current policy. That changed my mind.

That could be, but you are easily fooled.
