Aprilia SRV 850 ABS/ATC In Australia


Aprilia have started the process to launch the SRV in Australia. And I mean launch, this thing's a rocket.


Aprilia SRV 850 ABS/ATC

Aprilia has started work on getting what will be Australia's most powerful scooter into Australian dealers. The ADR approval process has started and we can expect the SRV 850 to arrive towards the middle of next year(2013).

The SRV has only recently received ABS and traction control(ATC) in Europe. I am pleased to announce we will get the full spec version here. The 839cc engine produces a whopping 56 Kw's. The engine and transmission package is shared with Aprilia's automatic motorcycle, the Mana 850GT.  

The release of the SRV is timely. BMW Australia have only just released its new range of maxi scooters with pricing around the mid-teens. We expect the price of the SRV to land somewhere around this figure.

What we do know is the SRV looks like it's direct from the SBK(World Superbike) grid. A title that Aprilia currently holds thanks to the RSV4 and Max Biaggi.

Aprilia Australia's, Kris Matich, made the announcement at last weeks Melbourne Motorcycle Expo. The Expo also featured the release of Aprilia's new SRMT 50/125 cc scooters. You can see more on that release here....
