Aprilia SRV850 Review

Aprilia SRV850 overview

According to Aprilia, the SRV850 is the world’s most powerful ever scooter. We’re not so sure. Some might be disappointed if they expected to use this scooter as a sports bike, because it doesn’t always handle well on the road, and issues with the suspension feeling under sprung have also been a niggling point for owners of this bike. For example, on high-speed bumps, a driver might feel that both front and rear suspensions were going to bottom out. It’s not the best start!

However, the engine doesn’t fail you.  It’s got a 76bhp V-twin motorbike engine, essentially crammed into the body of a scooter. It will just go! This can feel great on the open road but any kind of gradient may prove tricky for the SRV850.

The build quality of this bike could also be a let-down for some, and there is only space for one helmet and no glove compartments. There’s also no ABS and you can’t adjust the screen, which can be grating over time.

It is one of the cheapest scooters on the market though, at under £900! You are unlikely to find a faster scooter for less.
