With its exclusive, unmistakably Italian style, the 850 Mana is the perfect combination of elegance and practicality. As with all naked Aprilia, the Mana high-tech components make an essential contribution to the overall design.
NEW 2011 2012 MANA 850 ABS OVERVIEW, PRICE, REVIEW AND SPECIFICATION
The 16-liter tank is located under the seat, lower than normal, to distribute the weight more evenly and lower center of gravity of the bike. The path to "traditional" tank is instead occupied by a lit room that is coated with non-slip, scratch resistant and large enough to accommodate a full face helmet. The fund also includes storage device and a 12V power outlet.

Mana is the first motorcycle ever to provide fully integrated helmet storage, a unique and immensely practical advantage, especially for short trips and commuting. The compartment is opened electrically by a convenient switch on the handlebar. The lid opens under the control of a hydropneumatic damper that prevents accidental opening while the bike is moving. A manually operated lever under the passenger seat is expected to release the battery cover in case of battery.

ENGINE
There can be no doubt that the Mana engine has opened new horizons to the world of motorcycling, featuring as it does a two-cylinder layout, electronic fuel injection, bags of torque, and above all a revolutionary transmission system that replaces the traditional exchange mechanical and also offers a whole new experience in the motorcycle racing driving conditions.
To develop this amazing new engine, Aprilia has relied on the experience of the world's top designers and all the skill of its R & D.

Mana: The Future of Exchange
The most interesting aspect of the Mana engine is without a doubt its primary transmission system, based on an electronically controlled sequential gearbox, which offers the driver a choice of control modes.
Pilots can choose between two options:
- Sequential mode: The rider decides for himself when to change gear, either using the conventional pedal or a switch on the handlebar. A servo mechanism shifts the main pulley to change between the seven ratios amazingly quickly. During deceleration, if the rider omit to change gear manually, the control system intervenes to change down automatically, preventing speed drops below the set threshold and providing another valuable aid to active safety.

- Fully automatic (Autodrive): Sophisticated electronics assume control over everything, and the CVT transmission keeps the engine at maximum torque speed for optimum pickup and acceleration. Sportgear transmission offers a choice of three mappings:
Touring: for minimum consumption and maximum usability.
Sport: for top performance with blistering acceleration
Rain: for use on wet or slippery

- Semi-Autodrive mode allows the pilot to climb just independently. This is particularly useful for overtaking at maximum torque speed or to increase engine braking when riding down a hill.
You can switch from Autodrive to Sequential mode and back at any time, regardless of driving conditions. The shift control handle can also be disabled from the dashboard.

The 90 ° V-engine, chosen for torque and power delivery, is the perfect partner for this type of transmission. Deliver 76 horses to the tree, well above 7 kgm of torque (at 5,000 rpm), the engine produces a very flat power curve that translates into plenty of ready power even at low speeds.
