SRV 850 brings the style of the Aprilia maxi bikes to the scooter world.
If the eyes are the mirrors of the soul, the front end of the SRV 850 leaves no doubts as to the nature of the first Aprilia two cylinder scooter: the style which made the RSV4 popular, the SBK 2010 SBK World Champion bike, is offered here in its entirety. The decisive edges follow the super sport bike trend in order to enhance the dynamic quality of the bike and its technical peculiarities. The surfaces stem from a careful aerodynamic study to emphasise, even in its shape, the performance of the SRV 850. The front end is the extreme summary of Aprilia stylistic language: the triple headlight, the dynamic air intakes under the light assembly and the racing top fairing are elements that the SRV 850 has in common with the bike that revolutionised the super sport world.
Even from the side view we see the Aprilia stylistic language: a style which conveys a strong, yet sleek character, even with the bike parked.
The metal effect insert on the central tunnel is clearly inspired by the shape of the RSV4 frame. The front mudguard and the mirrors, which house the built-in turn indicators, are faithful to the Aprilia racing style as is the half-handlebar design: the two arms are made of aluminium and the new hand grips emphasise its sporty nature. The graphic of the complete instrument panel, in perfect Aprilia Racing style, is at the same level as the best super sport bikes. A large, central LCD is combined with the large analogue instruments (speedometer and rpm indicator), a true on board computer with a vast number of functions (including: double trip odometer, total odometer, service LED, radiator temperature) selectable with a "mode" button located on the handlebar.
The strong and decisive front end is a perfect counter balance to the sleek and slender rear end.
The large saddle, made in Hi-Tech material, is in line with the sport design but offers great comfort for rider and passenger. The sleek and slender rear end of the SRV 850 ends with a spectacular LED technology light assembly which the new maxi two cylinder from Aprilia shares with the Dorsoduro 1200, another “extreme”, bike, standard bearer of the Aprilia maxi bike muscular sportiness: a family of vehicles which the SRV 850 is a full member of, bringing unique sport characteristics to the scooter world without compromises, not even in style.
