5. Aprilia SRV 850 scooter


I’ve made no secret of the fact that I love scooters, and the Aprilia SRV 850, which takes its design inspiration from the RSV4 superbike, is so absurd I can’t help but love it. Powered by a huge (in scooter terms) 839cc V-Twin shared with the Mana 850 motorcycle, our European correspondent, Tor Sagen, reports laying down black lines with the rear tire coming out of slow corners during his ride on one. Tor also reported that the SRV would be coming Stateside. That was back in 2012. Two years on and still no SRV in America, so it most definitely earns its place on this list.
