I used to work at a (now closed) Aprilia dealer. I rode the original naked Mana quite a bit. The transmission takes some getting used to, especially the engine braking characteristics. Although I am coming from a almost strictly motorcycle background, so for me it felt weird, if you were coming from a scooter background I'm sure it wouldn't.

After trying the 1190 and Multi in Europe last summer, it's time for a new sport touring bike.

"Brappp" is the sound 4 strokes make, 2 strokes go "Ring-a ding ding"!
