SUPER BIKE, SUPER SCOOTER

THE SRV 850 REDEFINES THE OUTER BOUNDARIES OF THE SCOOTER WORLD

Power, balance, sportiness and design: everything about the SRV 850 points to the technical, performance and aesthetic standards of the Aprilia superbikes. Advanced in engine performance, revised in the riding trim and aesthetics, the SRV 850 brings the philosophy of uncompromising performance that is in the genetic code of Aprilia to the scooter world.

SCOOTER

The most powerful in the world



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. No fan will have trouble recognising the aesthetics the stylistic standards in the new SRV 850 which, together with the performance, contributed to confirming Aprilia motorcycles as the point of reference in the world of competitive motorcycles.

Engine

Not only power: a unique engine



The 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.

Liquid cooled , equipped with electronic injection , with distribution of 4 valves per cylinder and twin-spark ignition , the engine has a displacement of 839.3 cc . Thanks to a new optimisation of the engine control system, it now reaches a maximum power of 55.9 kW ( 76.0 HP ) at 7,750 rpm and a maximum torque of 76.4 Nm (7.8 kgm) at 6,000 rpm, specs which place the new SRV 850 at the top of its category. Two new oxygen probes (lambda) allow the engine control unit to optimise management of the air-fuel mixture for the two cylinders, all to the advantage of combustion, obtaining a regularity of operation at idle speed and a progressiveness and torque flexibility at medium rpms which are a reference point for this type of engine architecture.

The new system ensures maximum efficiency in terms of fuel economy and emissions control.

On the Aprilia SRV 850 the aluminium swingarm is secured in an entirely solid way to the frame, guaranteeing excellent stability at high speed. On the other hand, the elastic mounting of the engine allows the vibrations transmitted to the rider to be contained, all to the advantage of comfort. The final drive is entrusted to a powerful Regina chain , the most sophisticated type, sealed with a Z-Ring.

The exhaust system, completely free of the frame in order to keep vibrations to a minimum, is a 2-in-1 system which terminates in an aggressively styled silencer with heat shield .

CHASSIS

Glued to the road



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 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.

Simulations and road tests have demonstrated that the SRV 850 has a coefficient of stability at full power similar to a motorcycle (1 rad/sec) and almost twice as high as a conventional scooter. The high rigidity translates into an extraordinary sensation of control while riding. The new Aprilia maxi scooter leans into turns like a sport bike, reaching 45° angles, maintaining neutral behaviour and extraordinary road holding .

Even analysing the suspension section it is easy to see who Aprilia\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s motorcycle know-how was implemented in the new SRV 850. A swingarm in aluminium casting works on the rear, secured directly to the frame plates on which a hydraulic monoshock is anchored through leverage, mounted laterally in a horizontal position, with spring preload adjustable to an astonishing seven positions.

Compared to the GP 800 the fork made in aluminium with large 41 mm stanchions - adopts a more sustained calibration resulting in significant improvement of dynamic control of the vehicle, improving braking and leaning stability.

The wheel rims , 16” at the front and 15” on the rear are manufactured in aluminium to minimise unsuspended mass and guarantee riding precision . Overall performance is also helped by standard equipment radial tyres , 120/70 at the front and 160/60 on the driving wheel.

The braking system at the front uses Brembo Gold Series double piston floating callipers and two 300mm semi-floating steel discs . On the rear the floating calliper with two opposing pistons acts on a 280 mm steel disc. The piping covered in metallic trellis and the levers which can be adjusted to 4 positions , are further testimony to the attention placed on realisation of the braking system. The Aprilia SRV 850 is even equipped with a parking brake operated by a practical lever on the right of the leg shield.

Design

The style of the Aprilia maxi



SRV 850 brings the style of the Aprilia maxi bikes to the scooter world.

If the eyes are the mirrors of the soul, the front end of the SRV 850 leaves no doubts as to the nature of the first Aprilia two cylinder scooter: the style which made the RSV4 popular, the SBK 2010 SBK World Champion bike, is offered here in its entirety. The decisive edges follow the super sport bike trend in order to enhance the dynamic quality of the bike and its technical peculiarities. The surfaces stem from a careful aerodynamic study to emphasise, even in its shape, the performance of the SRV 850. The front end is the extreme summary of Aprilia stylistic language: the triple headlight, the dynamic air intakes under the light assembly and the racing top fairing are elements that the SRV 850 has in common with the bike that revolutionised the super sport world. aesthetic standards of Aprilia superbike .

The style is clearly reminiscent of the Aprilia superbike world. No fan will have trouble recognising the aesthetics the stylistic standards in the new SRV 850 which, together with the performance, contributed to confirming Aprilia motorcycles as the point of reference in the world of competitive motorcycles.

Even from the side view we see the Aprilia stylistic language: a style which conveys a strong, yet sleek character, even with the bike parked. The metal effect insert on the central tunnel is clearly inspired by the shape of the RSV4 frame. The front mudguard and the mirrors, which house the built-in turn indicators, are faithful to the Aprilia racing style as is the half-handlebar design: the two arms are made of aluminium and the new hand grips emphasise its sporty nature. The graphic of the complete instrument panel, in perfect Aprilia Racing style, is at the same level as the best super sport bikes. A large, central LCD is combined with the large analogue instruments (speedometer and rpm indicator), a true on board computer with a vast number of functions (including: double trip odometer, total odometer, service LED, radiator temperature) selectable with a "mode" button located on the handlebar.
