Since its inception, the Aprilia Mana 850 GT was highly appreciated for its versatile character. The motorcycle has a lot to love and you’ll especially like its sporty performances, intelligent technologies and the first class ergonomics.
The company describes its new Mana 850 as being a “complete motorcycle, the new frontier, the missing link in an evolution that makes the world of motorcycling and its emotions accessible to all types of users.”
Among the wide range of features offered by the 2012 Aprilia MANA 850 GT you’ll find sequential/automatic transmission, radial brake calipers, helmet compartment, upside-down forks and ABS brakes. You also get an adjustable windshield which means that the level of protection can be adjusted to suit your own needs with a unique level of customization.
The motorcycle is powered by a 90° V-twin engine, 4 stroke, liquid cooled, single overhead cam engine with chain drive and four valves per cylinder.

The Aprilia Mana has a pretty mixed personality and is hard to tell with if it is a powerful scooter, a city bike or an all-rounder. It seems that Aprilia doesn’t know either and names it only a “completely new motorcycle concept”.
What’s clear however is the fact that we are looking at a pretty versatile bike that has a few things to be loved for. It’s comfortable, practical and has also has enough punch to make the ride interesting.
The Aprilia Mana 850 is fitted with sequential/automatic transmission, ABS, radial brake calipers, helmet compartment and upside-down forks. You’ll also find a half-fairing which protects the rider and passenger on long journeys as well as in daily commuting making the bike suited for touring. You’ll also get an adjustable windshield and a V2 850 cc two cylinder engine that cranks out 75 hp.

Until recent years, Aprilia has been producing the Mana 850 as an entirely naked bike, but the Italian manufacturer also entered the sport-touring category with the Mana 850 GT ABS. At its base, the bike remains the same all-rounder with nothing more than a half-fairing and an adjustable windscreen, but it is claimed to be the result of a completely new concept of motorcycle and that definitely raises a few question marks.
Aprilia has recently presented the official promotional clip for the Mana 850 GT model, which was launched during last year’s Intermot show in Germany.
The 850 GT is the touring version of the Mana 850, the first production motorcycle to feature an automatic transmission, and it stands out thanks to a half fairing and a large windscreen, both meant to enhance comfort during long and fast journeys.
An ABS version of the Aprilia Mana 850 GT is also available. The system was developed by Continental and is found on most Aprilia street models.
Having recently gone a little over its hand with the all-new Mana 850 – a typical European naked bike that features CVT shiftless transmission, an electronic ride-by-wire system with multiple throttle maps as well as a helmet storage place instead of what appears to be the gas tank – Aprilia finds new ways of recovering Piaggio’s investment.
The first result takes the form of the Mana X concept which was recently presented at the EICMA show in Milan. So while the original Mana 850 is a dedicated commuter, its X derivation can be easily confused with a supermoto bike or even a dual-sport one as it is radically changed, mostly in what concerns the apparel because the same basic chassis underpins the X.
Get a look at that extremely low and spacious seat, at those thick tires covering the spoked wheels as well as at the waved rotors. Should I even mention the headlights or you’re already hooked? I thought so.
Aprilia is needed to call back at the factory some of the 850 Mana models due to a manufacturing defect.
The call, which was also reported on the website of the Italian Ministry of Transport is based on a possible malfunction of the power system and transmission. Corrective actions will consist in checking the integrity of the cable gas, software update exchange unit command system and the application of a protection corp.
On the same site there are also posted intervals chassis numbers of the recalled models.
Never has an Aprilia been so innovative, or technology so advanced. A new way to get about by bike, conquering roads the whole world over. Thanks to the advanced electronic transmission management system, the Aprilia NA 850 Mana guarantees a relaxing ride with maximum fun and efficiency.
