Aprilia SRV850 first ride: "like something made as a dare"

Steve Farrell, 15 March 2012 09:48

The new Aprilia SRV850 is the most powerful scooter yet - and nearly £2000 cheaper than BMW's C650 GT. The SRV850 is a restyled and re badged Gilera GP800 with the same chassis and 839cc V-twin engine. Aprilia says there have been 250 tweaks, including to the suspension and engine, resulting in sportier handling and marginally more power - 76bhp ...

2012 Aprilia Dorsoduro 1200 first ride!

MCN, 06 March 2012 17:47

Aprilia’s updated 2012 Dorsoduro 1200 is currently being put through its paces in the foothills of Mount Etna, Sicily, by MCN Senior Road Tester Adam Child. Here are his first impressions: "We’ve got the perfect roads for this type of bike: switchback hairpin after switchback hairpin. For 2012 the Dorsoduro 1200 has shed some weight – over 2kg just from ...

Video: Aprilia RSV4 v Nissan GT-R: Battle of the computers

MCN, 20 October 2011 16:04

Electronic rider aids are where it's at right now, love 'em or loathe 'em, and the Aprilia RSV4 Factory APRC (Aprilia Performance Ride Control) has the smoothest, most sophisticated system of any current motorcycle. The Italian machine's clever computerised brain will help you change gear, control a spinning rear wheel, keep the front wheel on the ground under hard acceleration ...

Would you buy a hyper-scooter?

Guy Procter, 19 October 2011 15:29

It might be the first big scooter ever to catch your attention – and then only for an instant, because you thought it was a melted RSV4 – but the new Aprilia SRV850 begs the question: would you? It's 2011 after all, sports bikes no longer attract universal esteem and we've all got a bit more broad-minded. Are you ready ...

New Aprilia SRV850 superscoot debuts

Phil West, 18 October 2011 11:50

Aprilia has just released this picture of its new maxi-scoot – the SRV850. It’s basically an updated, face-lifted version of sister-company Gilera’s GP800. The Noale firm took a similar approach recently when it launched the  SR Max 300 scoot which was also essentially an updated, facelifted version of Gilera’s Nexus. The SRV has the same basic rolling chassis as the ...

Editor’s picks: Aprilia SL1000 Falco

MCN, 14 October 2011 17:42

The Aprilia SL1000 Falco is a half-faired ‘street sports’ version of the RSV that never quite took off in the way it could have. The fact it is often overlooked makes it a great second hand buy. The Falco uses a detuned version of the 60° V-twin engine from the Mille. Less powerful it may be, but the Aprilia SL1000 ...

Aprilia SR Max 300: Taken to the Max

Trevor Franklin, 07 October 2011 14:26

Aprilia’s new SR Max 300 fits neatly into the overcrowded maxi-scooter class, but with a less than subtle difference from its rivals – the Aprilia actually looks exciting to ride. With styling allegedly based on the RSV4 superbike – a little far-fetched, although the black/red colour scheme is eye-catching and the angular layout of the bike is striking – it ...

Video: Is Aprilia's RS4 king of sports 125s?

MCN, 30 September 2011 15:04

How quick things change. Just a few years ago if you wanted a performance 125 it had to be a two-stroke. Now the ‘ring-dingers’ have virtually disappeared, made obsolete by emissions regulations and replaced by four-strokes. Encouragingly, though, this hasn’t led to the demise of the sports 125 – in fact far from it. The 125 learner market continues to ...

Editor's picks: Aprilia RS125

MCN, 28 September 2011 17:03

The two-stroke Aprilia RS125 was without doubt the top motorcycle for most right-thinking teenagers when it first rolled out of the factory in 1995. Aprilia has just launched a new 15bhp four-stroke - the RS4 125 - but the rev-hungry RS125 is still on sale and will be until at least 2012. But for those wanting a bit more excitement from their ...

Sports 125 challenge: Is buying a cheap sports 125 a dream or a nightmare?

Phil West, 13 September 2011 14:37

Whether you’re a 17-year-old-yoof or a 47-year-old-dad the dilemma’s the same: which learner sports 125 should you go for when on a budget? Sports 125s are the most popular choice for learners for their mix of image, fun and manageability, but few are lucky enough to have £4000 or more to buy the latest and greatest examples new. So what ...
