This is the Suzuki B-King. Creatively labeled the Ultimate Street Bike
It was first shown at the 2001 Tokyo Motor show as concept hence on this page.
2008 Update: The B-King has finally been released along with the 2nd Generation Hayabusa. So it is no longer a concept motorcycle! I was there too!
Specifications show that it is very similar to the Hayabusa in terms of Engine and suspension BUT the entire frame and suspension assemblies, exhaust systems are new and completely different.
