They said the first 50 people to buy one get free silver pants.


It's quite a bit lower than my 2nd gen. At least it seems quite a bit lower. like the black one better than the blue. Also sat on the B-King, that thing is friggin huge!

I agree with you on the height. I sat on a blue and I think it'd be fine without the side cover or chrome piece on the exhaust. Also, I agree the BKing is uncomfortably large.

It only seems lower because it's narrower than your SV.

Havent sat on one, but I though the Gladius was actually wider than the SV?

The seat is shaped much like a Corbin, although toned down a bit. The front is low/rounded while the rear is dished/wide. I though it was pretty comfy...I thought the whole bike felt good.

Matter of opinion I suppose, But it looks narrower to me. Sitting on a SV the bike feels wider round the tank, plus it's a little bit of a stretch to the bars compared to my Glady.

No. Actual seat height is lower, Suzuki offers a higher seat. For the SV, it was the other way 'round. :)

I stand corrected then. As to the higher seat i already new about it. There's one on e.bay but at £105 plus £7.99 it's a bit on the expensive side.
