    Yeah. All barely 100hp. My 675 would paste it being lighter.

    I remember reading reviews and people saying they were weird on turn in because the motor was so heavy and very very tall.

    I read those reviews and thought "Yeah, I wanna B-King"

    A mate just bought a BurgerKing. Off another mate. They're a queer bunch. Gawd its ugly. B1 sold it as he didn't like it as much as his GSX14. He used to have a Busa that he bought off B2 and got a bit nostalgic hence the BK. Now B2 seems similarly affected.

    Closed shop trading oversized Suzukis. Last conversation involved trying to find something lighter than his ZX14. Right.

    If I was wanting someone big like that I'd be steering towards a Diavel. Might as well look badass while trying to turn it into a tight bend at 2kmph

    I know someone who had one - loved the look of it (no accounting for taste) but hated the way it rode. He's ended up on a Monster 1200R which is for sale....

    Did it sound like a Yam rather than a potato?

    There was a guy turned up at the dealer with one of those in nice nick when I was there one day. Can't remember if I heard it run. I was just impressed by the sheer bulk of the thing.

    I rode one for a month in Quebec.
    Loved it some days, hated it the rest. Engines mental though and laying black lines with TC off never got old

    That BK was it the low KM blue and white one ? Same dude had the red/black 14, i bought an after market seat from the Busa he had , ive owned all three said suzukis and put over 150000kms between them i def liked the BK the most, best ergos to me and fun.

    I test rode an MT way back and really liked the instant torque but hated the way it ran outta puff quick , but at the time riding inlines i was used to those, thinking back if i just rode it to its peak torque it wouldve been ok. Suspension was a bit strange it was like a push me pull you feeling with the shock sorta lying down.

    A couple years later a got passed by a nice red and white yamaha racing colour scheme one that had ohlins fitted it certainly went well up over Takaka hill.

    A friend owns a Diavel he bought back from Canada it has a full exhaust and matching race ecu and it flies along rather good, it has over 70,000kms on it, he corners it bloody well but it could do with more clearance .

    I'm guessing that engine costs a fair bit but its virtually on the floor.

    I never considered that.

    I'm guessing by the lack of scrapes it gets trailered to its photoshoots.

    What is it with people who take the airbox off a dirtbike? good luck finding a wrecker who has kept that since the 90s.
