The Aprilia Mana 850 GT ABS is one of the few big bikes on sale today that is offered with an automatic transmission. In production since 2008, in terms of design, the Mana 850 has all the classic Aprilia lines including the single piece headlight, thigh recess in front tank and an overall squat stance thanks to the chunky rubbers. The instrument cluster comprises a digital readout for speed and other functions while an analogue gauge handles the RPM read out.
Its 839cc V-twin unit has been mated that has been mated to a CVT that has seven pre-set ratios. Such a design allows the rider to use the motorcycle in full AT mode or make manual shifts using paddles set behind each of the grips. The engine produces 76bhp and 73Nm of torque which is little when compared to its rivals, the Suzuki Bandit and Ducati Monster 796.
To manage weight correctly, Aprilia has placed the fuel tank under the rear seat and this means that there is a usable storage space front where the tank would have been located. It gets upside forks and trellis frame as well as front and rear discs as a part of the underpinnings.
