Troubadour was perusing the interweb and happened to find a May 2010 article on the Suzuki Gladius GPDesign NaSty Concept Supermoto, which he shared with me. The article is from Top Speed and can be found by clicking this ----> LINK
I happen to love the look of the concept bike and think it is a great idea to make the Gladius more versatile. Considering the article is a few years old and I've never seen any of these running around, I am sure no more were never made.

To quote the article: "What's best about this concept is that it features fluorescent paint on the rims, tank and handguards, which makes the thing more visible at night and implicit much safer to ride."
So, what do you think? Was the concept a hit or a miss?
And as far as Max goes.....I already have reflective wheel tape, and V-Strom handguards. Wonder how much work to get the higher bars and higher front fender? I suppose all it takes is money, doesn't it always?
