THE NEW APRILIA NA 850 MANA MOTORCYCLE IS A TASTE OF THINGS TO COME AND IS PACKED WITH ULTRA-SOPHISTICATED, RIDER-FRIENDLY TECHNOLOGY AT £6,369 ON THE ROAD
In today’s high tech, multi-functional world, comes the Aprilia NA 850 Mana motorcycle, featuring state-of-the-art technology at only £6,369 on the road. And for that you get multiple choice ride control – including a high tech sequential manual gear change or fully automatic mode.
Yes, for £6,369 Aprilia offers you the best of both worlds. The Mana has the gearbox of the future and an engine with a primary drive system, based on an electronically controlled, sequential transmission that offers the rider a choice of control modes. The rider decides whether to change gear, using the conventional foot lever or a switch on the handlebars, to move smoothly between the seven pre-selected gear ratios. Or, opt for the fully automatic mode (Autodrive) and the CVT transmission keeps the engine running at maximum torque speed for optimum pick-up and acceleration.
The Sportgear Autodrive transmission offers a choice of three mappings:
Touring – for minimum fuel consumption and maximum usability
Sport – for top performance with powerful and smooth acceleration
Rain – for reduced torque on wet or slippery roads
There is even a semi-autodrive mode which allows the rider only to change down independently, particularly useful for overtaking at maximum torque revs or for boosting engine braking when riding downhill.
Not sure? Well, you can switch from Autodrive to sequential mode and back at any time, irrespective of riding conditions. How about that to add to the thrill of riding, with lightning fast gear changes!
The 90 degree V-twin engine is the perfect match for this type of transmission, being chosen for torque and power delivery. The engine delivers 76 bhp and well in excess of 7kgm of torque.
