It won because of the motor that the SV motor that it's based off of. I think the monster looks best with after market cans but the reborn SV is still the best motor of the bunch.

Even if the Gladius is 'decent', who will want to buy it after seeing a guy with aluminum pants riding it?
So are you saying it's worst that it will be known as a gay man's bike or worst that the SV650 is a heterosexual girls bike. :rolleyes:

Both cases.

gladiusstyle.com has the gay aluminum pants man, and the girl that is trying to pull some Britney Spears dance move.

Is the 650 mill in the Gladius upgraded in any way, or basically the same with slightly different fueling (updated FI)?

It's slightly different but not supposed to really make any more power or anything. They say it's a little smoother and emits less.

Well, the reviews said noticeably more power/ torque. More important, perhaps the bottom end (crank) will be stronger. :)

Seems likely that the cast of MCN are of the flamboyant persuasion. The gladius is the best styled? WTF? The XJ6 is the best styled bike in that round up.
