Gladius Opinions please?!

Hello there,
I currently own a SV and I'm looking at picking up a 2013 SFV650 Gladius for my wife and I'm just looking for opinions on the bike as it makes me a bit nervous that they only made the bike for a handful of years I believe before dropping the SFV to go back to the SV. I believe the bikes are very similar from what I believe but am just wondering if there's any reason to avoid an SFV?

Thanks in Advance

no reason to avoid SFV. Good bikes and very similar to the new SV. they dropped the name SFV because it was not well received.

Thanks for the info, good to hear. In your opinion would $3000 for 2013 with 15,000 miles be a decent price? TIA
