The 2009 Suzuki Gladius was introduced yesterday at the Suzuki US dealer conference and boasts a SV650's V-Twin powertrain wrapped in a steel-truss frame. The Suzuki Gladius will come in at 202 kg wet, (445 lbs.), 8 kg heavier than the SV650. Suzuki has revealed little about the bike, but the frame appears to be a combination of steel trellis and an alloy casting, with basic suspension and brakes to keep your wallet full. A great entry-level bike for beginners as well as commuters wanting more affordable, greener transportation, the Gladius will get you where you need to go in cool green, style. Suzuki Motorcycles.
