Aprilia, the Italian motorcycle manufacturer owned by Piaggio, introduced the Mana 850 in 2009. In terms of style, it’s an arguably naked bike. However, Aprilia intended it to be all-around commuter machine for the European market, so it has an unusual (at least for a naked bike) continuously variable transmission, typical of those found in scooters rather than motorcycles. Honda also introduced a machine with sport styling and a CVT the same year, the Honda DN-01, but the Japanese company only produced it for a couple of years. Aprilia not only continues to make the Mana, but the manufacturer has added several other models to the line in succeeding years.
