Hmmm...the B-King in all black looks much better. I like its looks better than Kawi's big naked.

I'm kind of disappointed that the Busa didn't get an "all new" treatment, but I suppose it really didn't need it. The new body work seems to be an improvement.

Man, no offense to suzuki cruiser owners, but they are making some butt-ugly models in the Suzuki pen these days. I like the Volusia (or whatever the hell it's called now. Fabulous marketing idea in terms of changing the names to everything, by the way), but I think only Honda makes uglier cruisers. Kawi and Yamaha seem to put forth a better effort with the cruiser look.

Totally boring '08 lineup from Suzuki. Where's the innovation & excitement?

They took a page from Honda.

It seems like the B-King has been out for years considering the amount of time they took parading the damn thing around.

I agree, when finally was announced it already felt like a old model.

It's interesting to me that Suzuki has nothing in the sport-touring segment. I dug around on their website and about the closest I could come might be a VStrom 1k with add on bags. The ST market seems to be working for Honda, Kawi, Triumph, and Yamaha. And those stupid "Boulevard" ads with the guy on his fake Harley being eyed by the chicks with their target-tats sticking out of their jeans make me ill.
