YAMAHA is now understanding the real performance biking not only in 150cc segment but in 125cc segment too.
-new Gladiator(nice features,will help in better sales)

Seems like YAMAHA intends to manufacture some R1 parts locally.

Hi Payeng,

First of all congrats for being one of few for getting the opportunity to test ride glady

No doubt now the SS will be the best looking "BIG BIKE" in 125 cc category. I would like to know how would you rate the glady engine as compared to shine's engine. ( looking that shine can start in any gear, can be driven even at low speeds in 3rd gear for city traffic, refinement, etc.)

This babe surely looks good and it's even great that Yamaha is taking design cues from the King!!

I would be really excited to see this competing with the Bajaj Xceed Sprint. It should be close call with Gladiator being from the stables of the Yamaha with refined features for a 125 cc bike and Sprint being a four cylinder engine and design cues out of this world

road-yo said...

Nah, still doesn't cut it.

ajay said...

yamaha gladiator SS version will be a hit among 125cc with great looks and design.but what would be the aggresive price of this version?

YAMAHA sux. here in malaysia nobody buys them. i bought one and am stuck with it. the engine is simply hopeless. when i went to chennai in dec07 i tested a tvs apache and it was brilliant. i think even honda, suzuki and bajaj rox.

just stay away from a sucky yamaha. don't regret after buying

Payeng said...


Thanks for the kind words bro.. but do you seriously want to quit IT..??

The Auto Sector might look Glamourous from the other side of the fence.. but right now it is IT which pays you better.


the Ex-Showroom price of the Type-SS is around Rs.46,350

Jonson said...

Thanks a lot for the information bro !!!!!!!

This Glady looks smashing. very nice design bits, quality stuff, for the quality conscious bikers.For that price the best city commuter so far.

But, what about the after sales service?? I've a yamaha gladiator and the service is quite pathetic.

If there is something that yamaha needs to look in then it should be after sales service and the advertising.. Whenever I suggest yamaha to anyone their service comes into question and I've to agree with them (even if the bike is good).

with yamaha improving in its 125 section and with great looks performance and agrasive pricing do u think it can compete pulsar 150 and other a50 bikes.

Prakul said...

I am ever wondering that what could be the Yamaha statergy behind exploring SS and RS differntly ... even, as the matter of fact they hold very minute differce inbetween.....

I have recently purchased Gladiator SS (Black) and it is very good... in performance and looks... I am loving it......

I like everything about this bike except one thing that is gear shifting it is troubling me when I test ride it. It is not comfartable to bring it up, pressing down ok for first gear and then you need to lift it up by putting your feet under the gear shift. how you guys feel about this .....???
