Yesterday, I had the opportunity to ogle the Suzuki Gladius in person.

I love that headlight. Flat out love. The gauge cluster is also nice, as is the contrasting-color frame…the whole thing, really. The headlight’s what starts it, though. I liked the SV650, but the stock ones were always too tall for me.

The Gladius? Is not. That alone is reason enough for me to be excited. As I believe I’ve mentioned previously, I’m not really into cruisers. That’s cool if that’s your thing, but it’s not mine. Unfortunately, height also isn’t my thing, so I’ve got limited options. Sure, bikes can be lowered and seats can be reprofiled, but I’m SOL if I want to, oh, test ride a lot of things before making up my mind. D:

If you go visit the link above and check it out, make sure to click “Special” if you like any of the music playing. It’s available in a handy ZIP file for free download from Suzuki and composer Yasunori Matsuda. 🙂
