The Aprilia Mana is an interesting take on the practical motorcycle. Bringing in many ideas first seen in scooters, like the automatic transmission, it manages to make functionality sexy. Our favorite part is also scooter-inspired. Instead of housing the fuel high above the engine, it reserves that space for a storage locker (big enough to fit a full-face helmet), while the fuel is kept down low, under the seat. Not only is this solution practical, resulting in a much larger on-board storage capacity than any motorcycle before it, but it also enhances performance by lowering the center of gravity.
