Introducing a unique work of motorcycle art, a masterpiece of fresh styling.
Powered by a sporty 645cc V-Twin engine featuring the best of modern technology, delivering broad power.
A motorcycle that blends traditional displacement with an elegant new look, smooth handling and a friendly, comfortable ride.

It is called the Suzuki GLADIUS.
- 645cm3 fuel-injected DOHC 90-degree V-Twin engine based on the SV650 power plant with proven long-term reliability, broad power and quiet rumble.
- Twin Iridium spark plugs for each cylinder improve combustion. Use of Iridium alloy allows the electrode to be finer to produce a stronger spark.
- Race-proven Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Materials (SCEM) cylinder reduces friction and improves heat transfer, durability and ring seal.
- Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) downdraft digital fuel injection enhances throttle response and acceleration and helps reduce emissions.
- 10-hole, extra-fine-atomization fuel injectors improve combustion efficiency.
- Automatic Idle Speed Control (ISC) system integrated into each throttle body improves cold starting and reduce emissions
- Elegant styling with a richly curved bodywork highlighted by edgy frame covers, seat rail/engine cover detailing and buffed stainless steel muffler cover.
- Steel-tubing compact trellis frame.
- Colour combinations and contrasts of front fender, radiator covers, fuel tank covers, side covers, steel fuel tank and frame in each colour scheme attractively characterize fresh and stylish appearance of the GLADIUS.

- Comfortable riding position composed with tubular handlebar shape, footpeg and seat positioning, and the slim fuel tank/seat meeting section.
- 41mm-stanchion-tube front forks and progressive-link rear suspension are both spring-preload adjustable.
- 5-spoke 17-inch cast aluminium-alloy wheels, shod with Dunlop Qualifier sport radial tires.
- Front brakes with floating 290mm discs and dual-piston calipers; rear brake with 240mm disc and a single-piston caliper.
