Aprilia’s products aren’t as popular as the ones of its Japanese rivals, but this doesn’t mean that the Italian manufacturer’s motorcycles aren’t capable.
For instance, look at the Aprilia Mana 850 GT ABS, a sporty naked model especially designed to reward its rider with a great mix of speed, handling and adrenaline. Thanks to its practical character the motorcycle is also pretty versatile and feels similarly comfortable both on the race track and in the city.
At the heart of this beauty lies a longitudinal 90° V-twin engine, 4 stroke, liquid cooled, single overhead cam engine with chain drive and four valves per cylinder. The power generated by this mechanical monster is rated at 56 kW (76.1 cv) at 8.000 rpm and 7,45 kgm (73 Nm) at 5.000 rpm. All this power is kept under control by a modern sequential/automatic transmission.
Other features that are worthy of being mentioned include radial brake calipers, helmet compartment, upside-down forks, an elegant half-fairing and a comfortable seat.
