I can't seem to find much on the B-king in and around CF. is there a reason they're unpopular?? Or am I not searching properly? Any links, reviews etc would be appreciated cheers

You don't see a whole lot about them because A) they never sold very well to begin with, B) they're freaking HUGE bikes (physical size), and C) a lot of guys around here are in love with their oil-boilers, myself included. I know what you mean though. It's a naked bike with gobs of power, so I'm a bit surprised they're not more popular here too.

I've seen a few that have had those monstrous cans and equally huge indicator/air ducts removed and no joke they look like a completely different bike.

I can't post decent pics because I haven't figured out how to upload big pics from iPad. Cheers for the replies guys.

A B-King might be a good way to be a bit different around here :thumbsup:

they look like a pile of shit in person. it was only designed to look good on a computer screen. thats why they had a TON of hype, and no sales. they also were SUPPOSED to have wider rims from the factory, but I dont thinkt hey followed through on that.

I think they look good in person... I think the reason it didn't do well is the same reason many concepts fail when put into production... because they pussyfied it... It was supposed to have a fucking blower on it along with the 240 rear tire - 250hp fire breathing monster...

if it had the wider rims to balance the visual weight of the over widened tank, it wouldnt be so bad. personally I think tanks on fighters should be downsized, not up. fat fucking fucker.

Yeah... When your tank is wide enough to have flush-mount blinkers in it from the factory and you're still rolling on a 3.5" front wheel it's going to look huge.
