Motorcycle insurance bargains: Aprilia Mana 850

Motorcycle insurance costs are an important consideration for any bike buyer. That's why MCN is highlighting some of the best cheap-to-insure motorcycles out there. This time it's the Aprilia Mana 850.                                

Insurance group: 12
Engine: 8-valve, V-twin, CVT gearbox 
Power: 75bhp
Top speed: 125mph
Weight: 181kg           

The Aprilia Mana 850 is designed to be the bike for all occasions. For the weekday commute slip the Mana into ‘auto’ mode and you’ve got a twist-and-go 75bhp scooter. A flick of a switch turns the ‘Sportgear’ transmission into a seven-speed gearbox for weekend blasts. Plus it's only group 12 to insure.      

The Mana 850 has some great touches. There's space for a helmet under the dummy fuel tank cover and a 12v socket for you phone charger and gadgets too. With its roomy seat, upright riding position and spacious footpeg layout, the Aprilia Mana is comfy and user-friendly. In typical Aprilia tradition the Mana handles too; it’s agile and stable through the corners, thanks to its stiff chassis, wide, sticky Dunlop Qualifiers and good quality suspension.  

If you’re after real ‘do-it-all’ bike, something that’s as easy to ride as a scooter commuting in the week and is as fun as a motorcycle at weekends the Aprilia Mana 850 is excellent value. There are cheaper commuters and cheaper fun bikes, but the Mana offers it all in one package.
