Anyone seen, or been on, this scoot yet? I've read some reviews but interested in it from someone who rides a SW.

Thanks Smile

I've studied it a bit, and seen a few, but have not ridden it. Prices for used ones look good. I don't know about the complexities of the power train, and the resulting reliability.

I prefer the riding posture with the Silverwing, and being able to comfortably tote the wife.

Seems like the same technology could be used in a scooter form factor.

More power = better!

Hang on, the Aprilia SRV 850 is a brand new scooter based on the Gilera GP 800 and currently the subject of road test articles in UK and European bike mags. They might be currently in Aprilia showrooms here, I don't know.

Surely there can't be any used ones being offered for sale already unless it's been a complete flop like the Honda DN-01, and that doesn't seem to be the case.
