I like that paint scheme better but i just think the bike looks weird overall to each his own though. I think the R6 looks badass and some ppl think it looks like Christoper Walkins with down syndrome

I'm glad most of y'all like the bike! Hopefully I'll get my very own in August and then I can share some more pics...

That bike is but it would look SO much better if the frame and forks were black instead of gold

I like it, I would love to have it to get around town and give my bike a break.

That's the most naked naked I've yet seen. Aprilia has pared away everything almost to the bare skeleton. It's getting close to dirtbike-bare.

I love it. If I didn't need more wind protection for highway speeds, I'd get one.

59.7 ft-lbf @ 7000, 93.7 SAE hp @ 9000

(Aprilia's value - 95 hp - is in DIN/SI hp, not SAE hp)

I love the splash screen that logan1 posted too. Ah, Italy...

Naked with power

I see some similiarities between the two bikes, however....

IMO the suzuki B-king is the baddest naked around. Yes I do believe it needs a new exhaust but with the Hayabusa 1340CC power plant, imagine all the after market stuff.

And it's not "around", no ones ridden it yet except for the model in that video on the lazy susan. It could suck for all we know.
Looks pretty sweet though.

B-King

Its in the 2008 line-up for the USA. My dealership only has 1 alloted at this time. I only wish they left it as it began back in 2001-2002.

B-King stands for Boost King originally it was to have a supercharged 1300CC powerplant...

I had the opportunity to test a few motorcycles out of my normal comfort zone (race-replica segment) so I'd thought I'd share my thoughts/reviews:

The 2008 Shiver will defintiely leave you with a chill. It was either that or a pirate joke - "Argh, Shiver me timbers mate!"

The 2008 Moto Guzzi Breva 1200 Sport is one of those motorcycles that you won't normally find at the local bike night.

As a side note, I PS'd the Tuono with the forks, tank and tail section blacked out:
