I do really like the look with the trellis on the gladius. I did sit on one and the riding position is a little more leaned forward than the Kawi, and I was told it is a little more aggressively tuned. Less low end, more high end, and a little higher max speed. All slight differences though?
I use it as a commuter and its fantastic. Only had it for a couple weeks, but I spent over 2 hours in the seat one time and it was very comfortable/could have gone longer. This is my first bike as well and it is very manageable as I'm sure the gladius is too.
If you have any questions about the Kawi I'd be happy to answer them.
I vote Er-6N. But you're the one who has to ride it.
Motorcyclist magazine did a comparo of the two last year. They preferred the Er-6n slightly, saying that it was a little more exciting than the gladius. Both have tried and true engines. Go with the one that looks better to you. Personally, I think the Er-6N has a cool "poor man's Aprilia Shiver" look to it.
