Make sure you check out our Suzuki Gladius Review.
Targeted at new riders, the Suzuki Gladius is a based on the SV650, but uses a Ducati Monster 1100-style cast aluminum/steel trellis hybrid frame and cheap running gear to keep the price down. Suzuki intends the Gladius to be a stylish entry-level novice bike, but to us it looks too much like an androgynous Gilera DNA scooter. More details as we get them.
Update: The Gladius will be available with optional ABS.
