Boost King Without The Boost?

Remember that force-fed Hayabusa-engined naked Suzuki displayed at the 2001 Tokyo Motor Show? Of course you do. It was the Boost King, and it started motorcycle enthusiasts drooling everywhere. We posted a picture of the bike in our brief article on October 19, 2001. Well, if the rumors are true, you will get your Boost King, but probably without the boost.

Suzuki is expected to introduce a naked bike in the near future. Yes, it could be a 2004 model with Boost King design cues, but, perhaps powered by a version of the GSX-R1000 engine, rather than the Hayabusa engine. Sounds powerful enough to us. Bring it on!
