Happened to browse through BIKE magazine this morning.

They were having a shootout between the Gladius, Honda CB600F (I assume the new one), Yamaha XJ6 and one more bike I could not remember.

 

Gladius was rated with the highest torque figure and came in 2nd on horsepower, 3 BHP short of the Hornet.

Only managed to scan through the review, but seems the reviewers picked the Gladius as the pick of the bunch.

 

Funny though they pitched a V-twin against a 4-inline.

read the Bike mag liao. Tested the ER-6n, XJ6, Gladius and CBF600.

 

The XJ6 won the overall Test for the best suspension, speedometer and the engine (if remember correctly).

 

The Gladius suffers the rear-heavy weight distribution, underdamped suspension and the clock does not have the fuel gauge but it does have the gear indicator (best point). But the motor won the reviewer over, forgiving and fun engine.

if the price of it is comparable/much cheaper to all the existing 600 Jap street-fighter bikes, I might go for it...

 

its specifications seems good for sillypore roads. Has to admit its a weird looking bike, I believe it does have that head turning factor like its GSR brudder. :cheeky:

still no fuel gauge?

 

No fuel gauge, but the the fuel reserve would light up once it starts to hit reserve, I highly doubt it would hit our shores.

The 400cc version is out as well but i have no idea would it be available here too. Similar to the GSR, Japan came out with the 400cc version due to the limits of engines capacity in different licence scheme in various countries. This is so that it reaches out to people with 2A in Singapore for example to experience a similar bike. However, i believe their target market is countries like Europe...

What a pity... :cry: I'm interested to its fuel efficiency. Can bet my CB400 revo easily on high way as daily transport usage and more power! The engine is at much lower rpm at 100km/h (~4600rpm) verified from lots of reviews on the net. :)
