2013 Suzuki Gladius SFV650 | Quick Look


2013 Suzuki Gladius

The Suzuki Gladius returns for 2013, but without the odd name and the flashy two-tone paint.

Featuring a motor based on the 90-degree V-twin liquid-cooled 645cc motor that made the SV line so popular, Suzuki is giving it another chance in an upright, naked stance and now with DualThrottleValve fuel injection.

Twin front discs and 25 degrees of rake speak to the sportiness of the SFV650, and acceleration will be aiding by new cam profiles.An oval throttle pulley is designed to aid in smooth low rpm/mid-range power delivery.
