    http://www.aprilia.com/en-US/Model/9.../Overview.aspx


    I know its got some of its 'genes' from Gilera GP800.
    How about?.......


    1) Any comments & inputs about this scooter?

    2) How is good is Aprilia's support on readily, genuine parts availability?

    3) Finding good,reliable,friendly & honest mechanics, that can handle this machine?

    3) Aprilia resale value?

    4) Legal aftermarket parts support?


    Now let the comment, keep coming in.....

    Aiming for this scoot should I be able to get my Class 2 license!!!

    Engine should be reliable as it's using pretty much the same engine as the GP800 which was launched since 2005 (If I'm not wrong)....
    Currently, I suppose for local Aprilia sales and aftermarket support, it's only Mah Motors supporting Aprilia parts as they are the distributor for Aprilia bikes here. I suppose, there will definitely be many websites online that carry Aprilia aftermarket/ OEM parts. Just need to fork out more for shipping....

    Aprilia's sales here not as good as other brands, so resale definitely not as good as the Japanese.....

    Hey. P. thinking of other scoot already huh. its been awhile seeing your bike at Tanjong Pagar. 1 thing i dont like about Aprilia scooter. they borrow the engines from other companies and modify them to make a different scooter eg: atlantic 500, scarabeo 500 and now srv 850. when they modify, from what i read in the net, many problems arise. as it was, gilera 800 had problems and no wonder it never catches with scoot enthusiast, so i worry about the srv. i love the design but knowing the support given by the local distributor, i am not holding my breath.

    Most maxi scooter (except T-Max 500) sure will have more problems than smaller scoots de.

    But SRV850 is really a looker, especially with a taller aftermarket ERMax windshield!!! A top box is also required as the underseat storage fails to take 1 FF helmet with ease (At least T-Max can take one FF helmet+ a set of raincoat easily).

    Piaggio acquired Aprilia in 2004. So naturally the engine comes from Piaggio.

    What I was referring to was when they used Piaggio engine , it was ok. but the modification they made to say AA500 was that engine block was very closed to the coolant system that when the AA is used especially in hot climate country, the cooling system get evaporated faster before it gets to cool the engine.
    anyway, srv uses gilera 800 engine, does this mean aprilia is part of gilera?? no , right?

    Gilera, Aprilia, Moto Guzzi are under Piaggio.

    Gilera Nexus 300 is now Aprilia SR Max 300
    Gilera GP800 is somewhat the Aprilia SRV 850

    As far as I believe, the SRV850 should have iron out all problems faced on the GP800. For $18k machine price, it's definitely worth it!

    Understood, as they have different chassis. So the running of the components thru the bike layout is different although using the same engine.

    Piaggio acquired Gilera in1969. So it's only natural that the sister company share some similarities among themselves.

    2012 Aprilia SRV 850 Review


    2012 Aprilia SRV 850
    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.
    Aprilia SRV 850 takes its origins based on the GP 800, the maxi two cylinder launched by Piaggio Group in 2007 which established itself as the most powerful scooter in the 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, revisited in weight, riding set-up and aesthetics, SRV 850 brings to the scooter world the philosophy of performance without compromise which is written into the Aprilia DNA.




    2012 Aprilia SRV 850 Model Highlights

    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 76.5 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 fuel-oil 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 guarantees maximum efficiency in terms of fuel economy and emissions control so much that they already meet the future (stricter) requirements of Euro 4 approval.
    But it is not just power that the designers had in mind when they conceived this extraordinary engine: crankshaft and transmission group were designed with a rotational motion opposite that of the wheels in order to have a significant reduction of rotating inertia and the gyroscopic effect: by doing this the handling and quick entrance into turns of the Aprilia SRV 850 is increased.

    On Aprilia SRV 850 the engine is secured in a completely integrated way to the frame thanks to an elastic mounting to contain vibrations and the final drive is entrusted to a robust, but sophisticated, Regina Z-ring sealed chain.

    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.
    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 triple headlight, the dynamic air intakes under the headlight assembly, the racing fairing designed in the wind tunnel, are all elements which the SRV 850 has in common with the bike that revolutionised the supersport world. The colours of the livery recall the colour range of its "sister", the RSV4, including the two-tone Black-Red which characterises the Factory version of the Superbike from Veneto, the one that Max Biaggi rides in world championship races.
    Even the front mudguard and the mirrors, which house the built in turn indicators, are faithful to the Aprilia racing style, as is the design of the half-handlebars: the two arms are made of aluminium and the new hand grips emphasise its sporty nature. The new instrument panel, in perfect Aprilia Racing style, is at the same level as the best supersport 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.
    The large saddle, made in Hi-Tech material, is in line with the sport design but offers great comfort for rider and passenger. 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.
    FRAME AND CHASSIS
    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 level of rigidity translates into an extraordinary sensation of riding control which also stems from the 5 kg lightening realised on the RSV 850. The new sport maxi scooter from Aprilia leans into bends like a sport bike, reaching angles of 45°, always holding a neutral behaviour and extraordinary road holding.
    Even analising the suspension department it is easy to see how much Aprilia motorcycling know-how was passed on to the new SRV 850. At the rear there is a swingarm made of cast aluminium and secured directly to the side plates of the frame. It is clamped by suspension linkages that are dominated by a horizontally mounted, lateral hydraulic monoshock absorber, adjustable to seven different preload settings.

    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.

    This is a great maxi scoot at a great price!!!

    Hope to see more of this on our roads!!!

    The only limiting factor for me is no Class 2 license yet, and Honda not introducing more DCT models for their bikes.... =D

    Although this scoot is good, having sat on it on a display unit@mah, it's too tall for me to handle. I'm literally tip-toeing on the ends of my toes. Also, this scoot's underseat storage fails to take my L-sized FF helmet, and there ain't any front storage compartment as well.

    To me, a scooter must first of all have storage space for at least 1 FF helmet, and have decent sized front storage compartment.

    And to add insults, I'll need to buy an aftermarket windshield as the stock one is too low for me; Confirm will have windblast all over the place de. And to add a top box?? Gonna cost a bomb as SRV requires a special rack.

    Sigh, too bad I'm not tall enough to handle this scoot (Wet/ Kerb weight at least 270kg)....

    Aiming for Honda Integra NC700D now.

    Thanks for all the inputs & opinions.
    Keep it coming.


    Was contemplating,
    Because,.. I wanted a *Scooter NOT any 'Auto-motorcycle' that comes with higher torque.
    As this would be useful in a 'Stop & Go' traffic in Singapore.
    As for the higher horsepower, that should be fun for occasional short trip/touring at Malaysia's N-S Highway.

    The feature, I find most intriguing in SRV850 is the ATC/ 'Traction Control'.
    Any user comment on this?

    Pricing for Aprillia SRV850 seems reasonable as compared to BMW 650GT or C600.

    Would have been better if the SRV850 had DRL-led headlight & led brake rear lights installed as factory stock.
    It seems 'backdated' in that aspect.


    Bottom-line.
    I decided NOT to change my current Burgman 650 Executive just yet.
    It had served me very well for the pass 5 years. (Longest Bike/Scooter ever owned to date)

    It is very reliable. (100% Made in Japan).

    I enjoyed the 'Exclusivity' as there are not many left on Singapore roads currently.

    Contrary, to those who commented & yet had never never owned this scooter before.
    It is actually easy to find spare parts, you just have to be resourceful.

    It is easy to maintain. Just frequent engine oil & gear oil change.
    No troublesome frequent belting change or chain adjustment needed.

    Although this is a big cc scooter,.... this is still a scooter,
    I do not treat it like a "Hyper-Motard" or "Race sport bike".
    I usually throttle up gradually after proper warm up.

    It's got a huge under-seat storage to accommodate TWO Full face helmets plus other small miscellaneous like raincoat, tools etc. (Without the need of top box/any type of panniers)
    Rarely, I use my Hepco & B.

    Tall windshield protection with many aftermarket brand support.

    Motorized folding mirrors feature; to help ease weaving in safely,.. if traffic is at a halt at traffic junction.

    Double disk front with ABS front & back,come as stock from factory.

    The ability to change gear from Auto to Manual on the fly.
    Manual with Power Mode.

    As much as I admire the designs & innovations of many other newer Big cc scooters (500cc & up);
    Japanese, Italian & German 'Branded'.
    They still do not have to offer of what I am looking for in a big cc scooter.

    I prefer a Luxury,Comfort,Touring type big cc scooter to Sports type.
    Sports type usually requires installation of top box.
    Under-seat can only stores one helmet.



    *Scooter here refers to a different culture in the form of 2 wheelers transportation.

    visited MAH recently and saw the SRV850 in the showroom. The bike was awesome in terms of look, kinda heavy for a scooter but hey, its 850cc anyway. The most disappointing part of the SRV850 is the lack of a sizeable luggage space. I think the underseat storage can only put a FF helmet, thats about it. However, considering it at $22k OTR, it sure is a better deal than the Tmax530.

    dollar to dollar (pound to pound the old saying) , I agree with you that SRV is a better value than Tmax. you got the extra power and torque but you must think that SRV is relatively new. expect the expected problems arising and the cost to repair such a massive engine and electronic. must also think of the expertise of the mechanics here to handle such problems. the agent while had brought in the machine, did they bring the experts . probably sent the expert a 2 to 3 months to train the mech here.
    previously. the gilera 800 was released a few years ago with little fanfare. i suspect the new srv will suffer the same outcome

    you're right in terms of mechanic experience and skills. I wasnt aware of what problems the gilera 800 had until i noticed the maxi-scooter market rising in the past couple of years, and now in comparison with the Tmax 530. I was actually looking for a machine that can tour with relatively ease at 140kmh- 160kmh, with enough power to pull away from the traffic lights and with storage space that can accomodate the weekend trip. Hence i noticed the aprilia SRV and Tmax. HOwever, their design being the sporty version, is quite limited in terms of storage space. May have to look at SW and Burgman too. Thanks for the sharing.

    I brought Kymco myroad 700I on 10 days 9 nights tour. Went to Koh Samui, Penang, Haytai, Cameron Highlands. With pillion. I have a top box of 48 litres. Was able to carry all the stuffs inside without needing to carry bags.

    Very good piece of machine

    Do you mean SRV 850?

    If it is, there is already an earlier discussion about it.

    This scooter lack of under-seat space, resale valve not as high as other. Italian bike, spare parts expensive must go back to MAH.

    Can try BMW 650GT, large under-seat space (55 litres), electronic windshield, free towing service for 2 years (whole Malaysia). Able to clear meter (180km) but not recommended if you want to travel constant at 160km ~ 180km.

    Bro. If you are looking to follow the super big boyz on high speed NSHW trip. Then scooter is definitely outta your radar. Maxis scooters are not designed for high speed travelling. The higher rpm, the higher FC. And its really high. You can match the convoy speed but you cannot match their tank litres. In the end, you have to stop more frequently. That will defeat your main objective of getting a scooter in the end.

    For me, I have GPS. When I joined big boyz trip, i keep to my comfort speed and navigate to the destination.

    The only edge you have over the big boyz is the COMFORT. It is really comfortable to tour with scooter. My 18 months 700I mileage is at 40000km already. Lol. Travelling to Malaysia is like daily routine.

    Was maintaining 130-140kph. Mine is the restricted power model. Top speed is 170kph. Very impressed with the scooter. Low maintenance. Good dealer. No bike crippling issue so far. Just amazing how a taiwan made bike can make it thailand without any hiccups. Maybe next year can go phuket again.....^_^

    Go for the suzuki burgman 650 exec 2013. IMO it is the best scooter in the market. Anyway due to the auto transmission and its heavy weight, all class 2 scooter FC is generally high. Averaging 18-20litres per km. The Class 2B and 2A are significantly better.

    To me, SRV 850 is pretty useless for touring. Cant fit top box (for now). it probably doesnt look very nice with a top box too. Underseat storage very limited too. Myroad underseat can store 2 full face.

    As I stress again, scooter is for comfort and larger storage capability without affecting the bike handling etc. In exchange for these, its not for the good 'O' petrol saver bike.

    The unrestricted myroad 700I (top speed 190) is not available anymore. There are only few of these first generation and you can only find them in the open market. Heard only 3-4 on the road.

    It's a common problem for piaggio scoot.

    Had owned 2 small scoot before . Both gilera and piaggio. After collecting my new gilera runner sp180 a few days petrol leak due to cracked small petrol tank. Tow back and got it replace. Few years down, the tank cracked again and i bought a new one and coat it with engine gasket sealant and never leak since.

    Now coming back to the most common problem - cracked fuel lines. Usually happen when it's about 3 years onwards (original factory hose, didn't have any leak with after market hoses). My uncle Vespa GT200 also cracked.

    The problem with the fuel line is they will all deteriorate at the same time but cracked at different timings. What happened to my uncle was i ask him to send to the bike shop and ask them to replace all the fuel lines when he got a petrol leak from a cracked hose. A few months later he called me and told me fuel started leaking again. I thought that the bike shop may not have tighten properly but found out they only replace the cracked hose and didn't change all the other fuel lines. The cracked fuel hose is another hose and i told him after this is fix another hose somewhere will start to leak later also if don't change all the hoses ha ha.

    I think it's something to do with the quality of the hose material. My friend got a Gilera Nexus 300 coming to 3 years. No leaks as yet (finger crossed).

    IMO the fuel line crack maybe due to long term storage (guessing here). Scoot is new so unlikely.
    Now the concern is they may have replace your cracked hose but what about the rest? Will the rest crack later down the road. I think it's only safe that it'll be replace as a whole set.

    It maybe just a one off thing also. Unless the real reason for the cracked hose is known we can only guess here.

    Quality of the hose may have changed or improved since i own those scoot 10 years ago. Then again from what you mention here - maybe not.

    On a side note, those cracked fuel hoses (Transparent hoses) are from carburetted scooters. Fuel injection uses different hoses i guess due to higher fuel pump pressure.

    Thank you for sharing about your newly acquired Aprilia SRV 850.

    My thoughts & concern exactly, about Italian product quality.
    Generally, they can design an outlook very nice & inspiring. Sure, it comes with 'cool factor' & eye candy.
    But it is,the content & substance that is the main concern.
    Example- like electrical ,electronics & longevity of internal mechanicals; even after one's very discipline care.

    That is why I started this thread.

    Sorry to hear your problems Bulletz.two of my piaggio had fuel line problems. i guess it explains why not many srv on the road. because many buyers are very cautious of problems coming up. bigger cc bigger problems??
    i am very worried whats next??
    parotae, while carb bikes may have other other issues, EFI bikes like my X9 500 had also its share .

    Bro, I recommend yo to read up on the lemon law(that SG just implemented recently).

    If its faulty for too many times(a 1st few months), its should be replaced with a new one.

    Very sorry to hear of your problems bulletz. as i read my first comment above, my fears are justified. but i hope lemon laws will help especially non lawyers like myself.
