What's a "Glee"?

Most references I can work out - Vee vs Wee; I can figure out that V2 is the updated vee or wee, and that the "Beakstrom" maybe the 650XT.
But I can't deduce what a "Glee" might be - please enlighten me!

See my sig.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Thank you, I get it - Gladius engine! Nothing to do with singing or any other association to a Glee Club.

There's already a thread on that discussion at https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...shortcuts.html as was mentioned earlier.
Nicknames in my sig are a typing shortcut only and used to distinguish between models that have different physical characteristics and parts when doing a job on one requires different parts or techniques than others. The names are not usually used anywhere but in forums and are not used used at all in conversation, especially with non owners.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
