Suzuki Spain introduces a new, athletic version of the Gladius 650, which will be unleashed - for now - on the Spanish market only. The most versatile V-Twin of the Suzuki range then reappears with a more elaborate design embellished with various decorative elements, carbon fiber trim (instrumentation, headlight and engine guards) and a fancy Yoshimura exhaust.
The Suzuki Gladius 650 is basically a bike designed for daily commuters who would like to get something more exciting than a maxi-scooter, and it is also well suited for longer distances when going out of town. The heart of the Gladius 650 is its engine, a 645 cc 8-valve 90 degree twin with DOHC and fuel injection, which this cool new version will combine with a nice Yoshimura end-can that adds up to its aggressive aesthetics as well as providing more ‘grit’ to its sound.
The Spanish fans of the Japanese brand will have the chance to take a first glance of this new model in selected Suzuki showrooms this month, and they could also buy it at a promotional price of € 5999 until September 30. You can also give it the ABS, which will be made available as an optional extra.
