I am thinking of buying a new Aprilia Mana 850. I love the bike, so I'm aware of the positives. Anyone has any negative comments?

Cannot get the "paddle shifters" to work...absolutely won't do anything...everything else seems fine.

Any thoughts?

You can't the paddle shifters to work? Are you getting it in shift mode by pressing and holding the MODE button on the right grip? Once you get to the Sport mode press and hold for a second or so and it should go into sport shift mode. But, even in the automatic modes one can shift down a gear using the shift paddles or the foot shift. Handy when passing... We bought a Mana to replace my wife's Yamaha Majesty. So far it has about 1,500 milies on it - she put on maybe 50. I like it!

Thank you for your response. In either mode, the paddles don't work, no matter how you try. We are going back for warranty work, it seems. Glad to know you are enjoy the bike.
