Suzuki's latest middleweight has gained one of the most prestigious awards in its home market, taking the honours in the motorcycle category of the famous 'Good Design Awards'.

Launched in the spring of 2009, the Gladius 650 replaced the hugely popular SV650, going on to score highly with both press and customers. Featuring a trellis-styled steel frame, curved bodywork and ancillaries along with bold colour options, the Gladius brought unique style to the Japanese naked middleweight segment.

But it's more than just aesthetics that have made the Gladius an instant hit. With a chassis and bodywork designed to be slender, a low seat-height of just 785mm and strong attention to detail, the Gladius 650 is one entry-level machine that delivers both form and function.
