2012 Aprilia Motorcycle

The words “automatic transmission” are often enough to send a motorcyclist running in the opposite direction. In the case of the Mana 850 GT ABS, though, that would be a mistake.

A sporty bike with a fully automatic continuously variable transmission, the Mana has excellent handling to go along with its ease of use. Switchable power modes make it easy to ride the Mana at anything from a casual to an aggressive pace.

The rider can clutchlessly shift to preset positions in the transmission, but the real magic of the Mana is found by riding it in the automatic mode.
