I have ridden the Heat (same engine as Zeus). Other than the fact that the engine and gearbox are very smooth, theres nothing to write home about. Theyre decent bikes, but not exceptional ones.

Am yet to ride the Gladiator. Must conduct a 125 cc group test sometime...

I have ridden the gladiator n found it pretty good. Nice, refined engine, 5 speed gearbox, good pickup , low & midrange performance (i didnt check the top end )and nice suspension would be its +ve points. Mileage that my friend gets with it is around 55.
Among the 125 cc bikes i would rate it at the first position along with or a bit more than the discover . I haven't ridden the heat yet , but i'm sure the 9 bhp bike will change my mind (though it may be smooth but i doubt if its going to be exciting). I'll ride it once they open a showroom in trivandrum.
