Yamaha Gladiator Graffiti Editio

GLADIATOR GRAFFITI

Yamaha launched Gladiator on April 06 and the Auto Magazines have rated it as the best in 125cc bike segment. The terrific build, big bike feel, the brilliant handling and performance of Gladiator has been praised by the automotive press and the media. After the successful launch of Gladiator, Yamaha launched Gladiator Black in November 06. The Gladiator Black was awarded the Best Bike in 125cc segment by NDTV/Bike India Magazine.

To take the Gladiator towards newer horizons the Gladiator Graffiti was conceptualized.This concept is based on the visual expression of rap music. In addition, graffiti has been made synonymous with the anti-establishment punk rock movement. It portrays rough, wild, youthful, courageous, rebellious contra-culture image which is very close to a bikers heart to whom this bike is targeted.

In India the Graffiti is a fashion statement among our target customer who is
young, hip, confident, trendy & a cool trendsetter. Gladiator Graffiti is specially designed for him. It comes in two colours patterns Deep Reddish Yellow Cocktail and Deep Red Metallic.

that would have been a disaster...considering what some people wear on the street...think about the brightest 'radioactive green' or the 'flashiest pink'...btw LML used to have something like tht on the Freedom
