The 2012 Suzuki Gladius ABS is arguably one of the best looking models in its class. The motorcycle features a pretty futuristic design language and we especially like the sharp fuel tank, imposing frame and the unique headlight. Not to mention about the sculpted seat and the dynamic exhaust pipes.
We don’t have any complains about the bike’s color combinations either, as the contrasts of the front fender, radiator covers, fuel tank covers, side covers, steel fuel tank and frame further enhance its tasty appearance.
Once you jump on the saddle you are greeted by a useful instrumentation that includes an analog tachometer and LCD speedometer, digital dual trip meters, odometer, LCD digital clock and gear-position indicator.
In terms of power, the Suzuki Gladius ABS is fitted with a 645cm3 fuel-injected DOHC 90-degree V-Twin engine that is based on the SV650 power plant.

In the autumn of 2008 in Paris, Suzuki unveiled their latest (for the time and for now) entry-level motorcycle entitled the SFV 650 Gladius. Basically a refined SV650, but for the European crowd a whole new kind of riding excitement, the new bike sit on the thin line between impressive performance and awesome styling.
As a 2009 model year, the middleweight Gladius caught on to the public and it is now a much safer ride as Suzuki fitted it with ABS assisted brakes.
