Now we know what it looks like under the stupid plastic cover! Not bad Suzuki. When you take the cover off, it can no longer be called "gladius" right?

Showing some potential. Maybe when they come down to reasonable used price in 3-4 years and I've worn out the SV it might make a project.

The burning question is: What does the other side look like?

I thought you said it was a good reason. That makes me want to go buy a DRZ400SM not a Gladius.
To each his own I guess. My point was more that you can modify it to look less ugly and still have a 650 twin. It is probably still easier to make a Gladius a supermoto than it is to make a DRZ400sm a 650 twin. Besides it is already a given that a DRZ is desireable without modification but what kind of fun would that be?:)

The bike is much improved in the customized version and shows potential, although his/her choice of colors leaves me wondering why he/she bothered. I saw a Gladius up close and personal at the International MC Show in Cleveland. I did not like it. Somehow it just looked cheap to me, as well as having some hideous design flaws, like the rear passenger grab rails. They are the awful, and there is way too much plastic for a bike that isn't faired. It also didn't fit me as well as the SV.

So by adding rearsets and removing that stupid frame cover the bike looks much better

I like it, even if the colors aren't good. Put the right combination of colors on it and it will looks sharp. It looks like a Monster to me.
