Yamaha’s new Bike – The Gladiator

Through my friend Anil, I got this piece of news about Yamaha launching a new bike…named The Gladiator. Pretty lame name for a bike anyways! Whaddo they think before naming’em?? Avenger, Fazer, Victor and now Gladiator!! Poppycock! Now i am no bike enthusiast…nor I hope to be one! This post is for my friends who are!

According to the Yamaha website:

The Gladiator is a new model developed on the concept of a “next generation Fun bike”. It features a power unit coupled with a new 5-speed transmission and mounted on a body with a design that suggests dynamic motion. The 5-speed transmission lets the rider make the most of a wide powerband to experience excellent performance in both around-town and high-speed riding.

The Gladiator engine features the latest technologies. The 125 cc single cylinder churns out a maximum power output of 8.0kW (11 PS) at 7,500 rpm and a max torque of 10.4 Nm (1.06 kgf-m) at 6,500 rpm, delivering an outstanding standing acceleration. The powerful performance of the Gladiator is much above the current executive bikes and is at par with bikes in the deluxe category. Starting in any gear adds to the convenience factor & its handling during cornering is very precise.

Yamaha have John Abraham as their Brand Ambassador and he features prominently in their campaign as well as on their website. Infact, the microsite contains pages dedicated to John’s Filmography, his passion for bikes and other such tidbits. Click on the images below for the links.

  1. I have been riding Fazer deluxe for more than three years. I had ridden three splendors before. The maintenance charge for Fazer I found extremely high; specially I’m tired of changing the parts of disk brake. But some of my colleagues are riding Hero Honda, Pulsur, etc. They don’t have to spend so much as I am doing. Any way I found Fazor Deluxe more comfortable. Its engine is superb.
