As to the emerging reports, it is believed that Piaggio Group’s Aprilia has withdrawn two of its models - Aprilia SRV 850 and Mana 850 GT from the Indian market. These bikes are among the few models featuring the CVT option (Continuous Variable Transmission).

The reason for the decision is yet to be revealed, but it is assumed that the lack of demand for both the bikes in the Indian market is the major reason behind the withdrawal. Moreover, the company is yet to make the official announcement of the decision.

The Aprilia SRV 850 is a maxi-scooter, which comes with projector headlamps, LCD instrument console and GPS features. On the other end, the Mana 850 GT has a bulb and reflector type headlights, a fuel tank under the seat with usable storage space. The tail lamps for both the products are LED type and features ABS as standard. 

Both the models are powered by the same 839cc V-twin engine, which is capable to produce a maximum power output of 76 bhp against a peak torque of 73 Nm and comes paired with a CVT. 

It is speculated that the Italian motorcycle manufacturer Benelli is gearing up to launch the top-end scooter Zafferano 250 in the Indian market. This is an interesting fact in regards to the timing of Aprilia to discontinue its model in the country. The Mana 850 GT is currently sold in India with a price tag of Rs. 13.58 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), while the Aprilia SRV 850 is priced higher at Rs. 15.94 Lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
