Well I have an 06 svs but it's basicaly the same motor. I cruise between 5-6 and shift at those when riding normal. When railing I live from 7-redline :). Power is linear for the most part building smoothly, but feels a touch more powerfull round 7-9k to me.

If I'm in light traffic, I cruise around 4 or 5 and shift around 7. If I am in heavy traffic I cruise around 7 or 8 and shift around 9.


Edited to add : No, mine isnt a Gladius but the engines are close.

I'm getting some great mileage at below 6k RPMs; 2 tank fills so far have been 55mpg.
When I was running the bike in I was getting 148 miles out of the tank before the fuel light was coming on.

I think that's pretty good considering the tank holds only fourteen and half litres of fuel.
