Aprilia have introduced their flagship scooter, the SRV 850, for sale in India. This is the first premium maxi-scooter to be launched in the country. With design inspired by the RSV4 superbike, the Aprilia SRV 850 is the most powerful production scooter in the world, with its 840cc V-Twin delivering an output of 76 bhp @ 7750 rpm. This propels it to a top speed of nearly 200 kmph, which also makes it the world's fastest production scooter. The SRV 850 uses an automatic Continously Variable Trasmission (CVT) to transmit power to the rear wheel. Twin Brembo disc brakes at the front and a single disc brake at the rear help the 249kg scooter shed speed quickly.
The Aprilia SRV 850 is available in two variants: the standard version, which is priced at Rs 14,39,000 (Ex-showroom, Gurgaon), and the SRV 850 ABS ATC, which comes equipped with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Aprilia Traction Control (ATC) that retails at Rs 14,93,000 (Ex-showroom, Gurgaon). This makes the SRV 850 the most expensive scooter available in the Indian market, surpassing its Piaggio cousin, the Vespa VX 125, by a big margin.
