Aprilia Atlantic 500 Review

Aprilia Atlantic 500 overview

Often considered a super scooter, the Aprilia Atlantic 500 is heavy but sprightly. It is also quite roomy, practical and stable which means it suits all types of rider – even the more hardcore among you!

In 2005, it received some updates which smartened up its look, as well as improved and strengthened the frame and the suspension. This makes it a nimble bike with plenty of torque, more than capable of taking you places in comfort. The seat is plush, the leg space is ample, and the ride is smooth and predictable. This is considered a good all-round bike.

The range of Aprilla scooters have been going for some years now, making it a reliable option for many riders looking to invest in a new bike, whether you are looking for a first time bike or if you are an experienced rider just looking to add a new model to your collection. Aprilia is an acclaimed Italian motorcycle company; in their early days building bicycles and then moving onto the manufacture of scooters and small-capacity motorcycles. Aprilia has also enjoyed success in road-racing.

You’ll find this super scooter at pretty good value on the market– there are some similar competing models out there which will cost about the same but don’t have the same power (e.g. the 400 Burgman.) Other similar models are more expensive but do about the same thing (e.g. Yamaha’s T-Max, and the Honda Silver Wing.)

Works a treat; tank range is tiny so you're not on it long enough to get saddle sore!
