Mana had a computer controlled variator, like the Burgman 650. I also test rode a Mana and was underwhelmed... :( The GP 800 and Aprilia SRV 850 are classic variators...the SRV 850 actually came with Dr. Pulley sliders from the Factory! 8-)

Fascinating about the DrPulleys! Why don't others do this?
Yes, its all coming back to me - the Aprilia gearbox did have several modes (including a semi-auto?) whilst for some odd reason the GP800/SRV didn't get any of that. So the GP800 might work better. BUT being computer controlled is no excuse for transmission lag - the Burger's worked fine most of the time.
