    Super scooters have re-ignited the top speed battle between manufacturers - a battle which has been largely irrelevant for motorcycles since hyperbikes such as Suzuki's Hayabusa started cracking 180mph 13 years ago.

    But with big scooters it's just getting under way and BMW recently claimed a top speed of 175kmh (108mph) for the C600 Sport scooter. Not bad for a step-thru. And now Aprilia has launched its answer, the SRV850, with a claimed top speed of 200kmh, or 126mph. Forty years ago it would have been faster than any production motorcycle.
