The 2009 2010 Suzuki Gladius Comes
The 2009 Suzuki Gladius comes in two styles of the same no-nonsense, two-wheeled armament.
The Gladius 650 offers plenty of low-to-midrange torque to make everyday riding more of a hoot. A Gladius was an early Roman stabbing sword which was short, precise and easy to handle. Hence the rather apt naming of Suzuki’s new and compact entry-level roadster. All the technological wizardry on the 2009 Suzuki Gladius means riders can focus on their form with added confidence in stability.Hmm well so far in every comparison it outperforms the kwaka 650 varients and yamaha and tops them all. I rode it this week straight after the Ducati 696 and it had none of the holes that the Ducati has in its powerband. I guess the styling is a personal thing, but man that old sv uprated v twin, is a beauty. I think it will be a huge success. Good on ya Suzuki!Gladius makes for an affordable and stylish first purchase.
Realistically only the Yamaha and Kawasaki can compete with this (considering price range). The street triple is $8,699 2 grand more than this and the ducati is practically 3 grand more. The sv has always been a budget man's ducati. I just hope aftermarket support is as strong for this model as the outgoing sv. That's where the true appeal is. We need a new street fighter comparison. Much has changed in a couple of years
Arrow exhausts has tied into the new single-make Suzuki Gladius Cup in Italy and become the official exhaust part for the newly launched championship.
Arrow already supply systems for the factory World Superbike Suzuki team and continue their close relationship with the Japanese brand by committing to being the official exhaust supplier for the Gladius Cup.
And this is what they’ll be running.
The exhaust is due to become available to the general public to buy but no official information has yet been released.
