Would you buy a hyper-scooter?

Published: 19 October 2011

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 to consider a maxi-scooter (or hyper-scooter if it makes you feel better) for maybe commuting or runs to the offie? Ones like this with 76bhp or Honda's Integra that'll do 77mpg?

Sense is knocking at the door. Is pride ready to let it in?
