The Mana has an 839.3 cc (51.22 cu in) 90° V-twin engine with a continuously variable transmission (CVT). The transmission has three mode settings: Sport, Touring, and Rain. Sport mode provides maximum power, engine braking, and torque; Touring mode scales back the responsiveness and improves fuel savings; Rain mode reduces torque by 25%. The transmission can also be set to Manual (gearbox) and shifted using the standard foot-shift or paddle-shifters mounted on the left grip. The instrument panel includes a gear indicator. The Mana 850 is also available partially faired, called the Mana 850 GT.
Sport Rider magazine tested the Mana 850 at 13.49 sec. @ 97.72 mph (157.27 km/h) over the 1⁄4 mile (400 m). Motor Cycle News described it as "a sort of half-scooter, half motorcycle designed to be the bike for all occasions.". "What Bike?" magazine says the Mana is "small, light, comfy, and a dream to ride in town." A "Motorcycle.com" reviewer was very positive, saying, " I didn’t expect the Mana to be much of a sportbike, but it is".
