2011 Aprilia Mana 850 Video

If there’s one thing that separates the 2011 Aprilia Mana 850 GT from the rest, it’s the Sport Gear Transmission, which is a high-tec automatic motorcycle transmission.

Riders can use the Aprilia transmission in either manual or automatic mode; in the manual sequential mode, the rider simply shifts between seven ratios on the left handlebar.

But there’s also the autodrive mode, which allows the rider to chose from three, automatic transmission maps – touring, sport or rain.

And what’s very unique about the Mana’s transmission is a rider can switch from automatic to sequential mode and vice-versa any time.

Attached is a video highlighting the 2011 Aprilia Mana 850 GT, and below are all the specs of this unique bike, which Aprilia badges as the "Ultimate Sport Touring Motorcycle."
