181 HP B - King!! Can You Say HorsePower War.

Suzuki just announced on MSN the launch of their B - KIng naked bike. All 181 horsepower of it is to be in show rooms by this fall. It makes you wonder how far the manufacturers can push the horsepower thing before big brother decides to step in and try to save us from ourselves?

When a bike is that ugly, does it really matter how fast it is?

I dunno Dave. I think all ugly bikes should be fast. The faster they go, the better they look. (Cuz you don't have enough time to see em.)

That's why all those purdy Harleys are so s...l...o...w... Gives you plenty of time to look at them.

I don't know... I think I'll hold out for the 192 horsepower Yamaha Mickey-D.
