The Aprilia SRV850 ABS is the Italian automaker’s power scooter. Underpinned and based on the same platform as the Mana 850, it is twist-and-go bike like none other. Derived from the GP800 maxi scooter and has been on sale for a few years now.
It shares its power plant with the Mana 850 which means that the unit is a 90 degree 839cc V-twin that produces 76bhp and 73Nm of torque. The engine has been mated to a CVT but without the option of the paddle shifters and consequently the pre-set riding modes. What it does get however, is the option of an ABS system which can be turned on and off.
In terms of overall design, the company says the bike has been influenced by the 2010 RS4 factory that won the SBK championship of that year. This influence also extends to the colour scheme which is reminiscent of the Aprilia factory team’s colours.
The instrument console is an LCD unit with an analogue tachometer as well as a speedometer while there is a steeped seat for the rider and the pillion. The SRV850 is offered with a large host of accessories like GPS, alarm, modified silencer and carbon fibre lookalike body parts.
