The 2012 Aprilia SRV 850

The 2012 Aprilia SRV 850 redefines the edge of the scooter world limits. Power, set-up, sporty spirit, design: everything about the SRV 850 recalls the technical, performance and aesthetic standards of Aprilia superbike.
The style is clearly reminiscent of the Aprilia superbike world. The Aprilia engineers enhanced that revolutionary project, transferring to the SRV 850 the know-how which stems from decades of victories on tracks all over the world and which Aprilia has always transferred to its most sporty bikes such as the Aprilia RSV4, the SBK 2010 world champion, and the muscular motard Dorsoduro 1200.Evolved in engine performance, revamped riding set-up and aesthetics, the SRV 850 brings the philosophy of performance without compromise which is part of the Aprilia DNA into the world of scooters.

The 2012 Aprilia SRV 850 engine is the first and only 90° V two cylinder scooter engine and it makes the maxi from Veneto the fastest and most powerful scooter ever manufactured anywhere in the world.On the Aprilia SRV 850 the aluminium swingarm is secured in an entirely solid way to the frame, guaranteeing excellent stability at high speed. SRV 850 brings the style of the Aprilia maxi bikes to the scooter world.

The graphic of the complete instrument panel, in perfect Aprilia Racing style, is at the same level as the best super sport bikes. 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.

The generous power of the Aprilia two cylinder’s engine demands a superbly rigid chassis. The double cradle frame of the Aprilia SRV 850 is made of steel trellis pipes with reinforcing and rigidity plates.The new Aprilia maxi scooter leans into turns like a sport bike, reaching 45° angles, maintaining neutral behaviour and extraordinary road holding.The braking system at the front uses Brembo Gold Series double piston floating callipers and two 300mm semi-floating steel discs. The Aprilia SRV 850 is even equipped with a parking brake operated by a practical lever on the right of the leg shield.
