Picked up my new '08 B King in November, just in time for the Missouri weather to turn terrible! Got to put 70 miles on it before it went in to dry dock. Anybody put some miles on their bike and can let me know what you think? I can't wait for spring to let it rip (after break in of course.) I have never had a bike accelerate as quickly as this one. I have a 2001 ZRX 1200 and the difference between carbs and fuel injection is incredible! Let me know what you think.

I am just wondering how well they are selling in the US. I don't think they are going to go over well, that is why I got mine early. I won't be surprised if they are gone after 1 year. 2 years, tops.

Well FlaZRX, if you looked at one of the bikes I owned, you would see that I have a 2001 ZRX1200, so this bike would be right up your alley, just like me. I love naked bikes. The look, the seating position, the cheaper insurance! I think you should get one soon if you're thinking about it because I'm not sure if you will have the chance for long. By the way, the stock seat in the B-King is extremely comfortable, even on long rides. I can't say the same about my Z-Rex!

B-King owner

Hi I was one of the first to own a B-king in the UK. I bought mine in Sep amd love it to bits, It's just mental. I've added a pair of Yoshi can's to it and covered 700 miles on it. It puts a smile on my face everytime i take it out.

I was interested in one, then I found out about the limited range with only a little over 4 gallons of gas. That kills it for me, I like at least 200 miles before filling up.

I know what you're saying. At a steady pace (?) you can cover about 150miles to a tank which is 17ltr's. Throttle her up and it can go less than 100miles but you've got the biggest grin in the petrol Station.

The exhaust were the first thing i changed on it, have you seen the state of the standard ones, they stand out a mile off. Just added a small double screen over the light to push the wind over my head at higher speeds. It does the job really well as i found out over the weekend. HeHeHe!!!

Just waiting for a new style back light and number plate holder before i take some more pic but i will put some on soon. As for being big for the bike, i'm 6ft 2in and 17 stone rugby player but find the B-king to be really comfortable to ride.

I pulled up next to one on my SV1000 last week and promptly got my ass absolutely handed to me. Caught back up to him on the highway and went from 60. Got torched again.. I want I want I want!
