Aprilia pimps the world’s scooter to remain at the forefront of the class

Aprilia is Europe’s successful racing motorcycle with two superbike world titles, nine off-road championships and 38 world titles in Prix motorcycle racing. So, it is appropriate that as the racing of the Piaggio stable, which is one of the largest producers of scooters, should produce the world’s scooter.

The Aprilia SRV 850 is based on the GP 800, the world’s fastest scooter that was created in 2007 when Piaggio put an Aprilia Mana sports engine into a purpose-built frame.

The bike was launched in as a Gilera GP 800 Maxi Scooter and now the turn of another of Piaggio’s (Piaggio owns the brands Gilera and Aprilia, plus Guzzi, Derbi, Vespa and the race-orientated Aprilia brand, to its mark on the GP 800 and make it the SRV 850.

Indeed, the scooter and motorcycle to be morphing into a new class of machine, with the power, braking and roadholding of the motorcycle, and capacity, weather protection, safety and ease-of-use of the scooter.

The SRV850 The SRV 850 is Aprilia’s redesign of the GP800, which was already the and most powerful scooter manufactured anywhere in the world. It is a Italian V-twin sports — a sports bike no gears that looks a scooter.

The specifications read any Italian sports bike: the kW (76.0 HP) engine is a fuel-injected, ignition, four valves per 90° V-twin in a lightweight rigid frame. The handling and roadholding are quite extraordinary, partly of the lightweight but very rigid frame, and partly because the and transmission rotate in the opposite to the wheels, significantly reducing the effect.

The Aprilia SRV850 also top shelf brakes, and running gear. Maxi have been around for than a decade now, but Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha and BMW having large-engined scooter/motorcycle at or close to market, the super is appearing as a new class of motorcycle a very compelling proposition the convenience of a scooter no longer an anemic mid-range. Instead, the 76.5 Nm (7.8 kgm) of the Aprilia SRV drives a CVT — riding with a modern CVT NO gears.

The Gilera GP800 An engine of power output (at 76 bhp, the has more horsepower than the modern day superbike, the Honda which had 67 bhp) requires a strong chassis — the cradle frame of the Aprilia SRV 850 is of steel trellis with and rigidity plates, and is apparently than up to the task.

Honda’s will be released this According to Aprilia, it has conducted and road tests that demonstrated that the SRV 850 has a coefficient of at full power similar to a (1 rad/sec) and almost twice as as a conventional scooter. The rigidity of the in the trellis frame is the difference and is to deliver an extraordinary sensation of control, a bike that into bends like a bike, reaching angles of always holding a neutral and extraordinary road holding.

The overall package is far more than the GP 800 even though it is slightly lighter (by just 5 lbs). The suspension has been at both ends — the 41 mm aluminum swingarm, completely suspension geometry and top class sitting on fat 16 front, 15 rear cast aluminum rims.

new GT600 The interesting thing the SRV 850 is that the engine faces the way to normal — the crankshaft and have a rotational motion to that of the wheels in order to rotating inertia and the gyroscopic which makes it more to tip a conventional motorcycle into a

The company claims that by this suppression of the rotational the handling and quick entrance turns of the Aprilia SRV 850 has been

The chassis design has also Aprilia a way of minimizing the vibrations of the big by isolating the engine from the with elastic mountings and with the 2-into-1 exhaust

Piaggio also produces the MP3 The front end of the SRV 850 is styled on the RSV4 SBK SBK World Championship bike, a big triple headlight, dynamic air under the headlight assembly, and a supposedly designed in a wind though it doesn’t look much different to the original GP

The braking system on the SRV 850 is similarly top hauling an admittedly porky (for a scooter, 249 kg/549 to a stop from its road speeds with ease. Up are Brembo Gold Series piston floating calipers and two semi-floating steel discs, and at the floating caliper has opposing and acts on a 280 mm steel disc. channel anti lock makes this a breeze.

Honda’s Integra As the RSV has a CVT and hence no to lock the rear wheel by the transmission, it’s one of the very few two on the planet to also have a brake, which is operated by a on the right of the leg shield.

The SRV comes with radial tires, a 120/70 at the front and 160/60 on the wheel.

Aprilia’s influence on the character of the bike is most in the area of suspension. A cast swingarm is similar to that of the RS250 road bike is sadly no more.

The frame on the T-Max leaves no doubt its rigidity It is clamped by suspension that are dominated by a horizontally lateral hydraulic monoshock adjustable to seven different settings. Compared to the GP 800 the fork in aluminum with large 41 mm it adopts a more sustained resulting in significant improvement of control of the vehicle, improving and leaning stability.

Suzuki’s 650 scooter The maxi class is growing considerably the only thing now that it for take-off as a class is for the the fuel to follow their natural and all those ex-motorcyclists to renew vows.
