Ease of use

Reliability / Ease of maintenance

How tall are you & inside leg measurement?

I am 5ft 4in with a 29 inch inside leg

Size of bike - is it comfortable to ride?

See below, I decided to have the seat lowered.

Have you had any adjustments made?

I decided to have the bike lowered as when I was learning on the Gladius I didn't feel confident with the height. The seat height of the bike was 800mm and after lowering it is 775mm. I have also added had heated grips, crash protectors and shorter levers fitted.
