Aprilia Mana X






Our friend, Rocket68, at rocket-garage.blogspot.com brought our attention to Aprilia's new concept, the Mana X. Shown at the huge Milan Show last week it's unashamedly flat track-based, and uses the engine of their semi-auto oddity, the Mana. It hits the spot in some areas, but the headlight's too fussy for me. I wish they'd get properly behind the US AMA program. The guys have been doing well over there on Mille-powered bikes for a while.
Thanks to Rocket68

It needs pointing out that the man berating Aprilia in the comment above, Mr Outtacontrolla, is actually a co-owner of one of Britain's most successful Ducati dealerships. Just how many Desmosedici's have you sold now, Steve?

Rather surprisingly I found myself liking the look of the BMW Lo-Rider concept shown at Milan and pictured in MCN - specially the high pipes...
