Aprilia’s Atlantic super-scooter raw power with impressive says Kevin Ash, the journalist to try it

The super-scooter market in is still at the embryonic stage and one manufacturer has suffered some technical problems. Sales are a trickle compared with the growth the sector has been overall in the past few years. But the of these scooters with big — we’re talking — is so compulsive that little doubt we will be plenty more of them the manufacturers have discovered buyers of this new class of are looking for.

Three models have released to date, and already some polarisation between the and Italian approaches. Yamaha and with their Tmax 500 and Silver Wing, have the high-technology route, using engineering to produce twin-cylinder with solidly mounted and separate rear swingarm

Piaggio’s X9 led the way for Europe with its 500cc engine, following traditional scooter practice the engine and transmission form the swingarm. As the back wheel up and down over bumps, the and transmission nod in unison.

The price the must pay is exactly that the price. Both the Tmax and Wing are listed at about which these days is to buy a new small car. The car won’t through traffic like a but it does make the two-wheeler as if it’s short-changing the buyer in the of metal he gets per pound.

The version is cheaper and simpler to but its traditional scooter construction it with a high unsprung and the ride and handling suffered. In our last year, we liked the but worried about some of the traits. Shortly after Piaggio expensively withdrew the X9 sale for a major revamp story below).

It might have been a 500cc engine was simply too big and to be mounted scooter-fashion as a solid with the transmission — certainly an awful lot of mass to in concert with the rear Our experiences with the similarly 400cc Suzuki Burgman, we ran as a long-term test machine for months, suggested it was possible to acceptable ride and reasonably handling with a slightly engine. It almost seemed half a litre of swept might be the traditional scooter’s limit

Until now. Italy’s second largest manufacturer, Aprilia, uses not the same format as the Piaggio in its new 500, but also the same and transmission — and it handles fine.

The deal whereby buys the engine/transmission units Piaggio raised a few eyebrows the two are fierce rivals in the showrooms, but for this represented the most way of entering the super-scooter sector, Piaggio pragmatically decided its competitor was bound to build a anyway, so better a Piaggio than someone else’s.

for Piaggio, this has displayed superior chassis technology starkly, as the Atlantic is capable of ridden up to its 100mph top speed remaining perfectly stable. there are wobbles and shimmies, if it’s cornering at the same but nothing that worries the or might take the scooter in an direction, as the X9 could.

The large, 15in front is an aid to stability, as is the Atlantic’s long but Aprilia engineers say the chassis is as stiff torsionally as the X9’s and 50 per stiffer even than a Silver Wing’s.

The ride suffers compared with the scooters and their independent because the Atlantic crashes potholes jarringly and makes a big of rough road surfaces. But the is plush and broad and the scooter’s 480lb mass damps out the behaviour, so the rider soon noticing this.

Comfort is good, enough to spend all day in the should you feel like the Atlantic away for the weekend than use it solely for the commuting owners will envisage. The protection is not as good as a Silver mostly because the screen is and there’s nothing to shield the but it’s still far better the majority of motorcycles, while the riding position is roomy for taller riders. But at speed, the noise off the top screen means you consider wearing ear plugs (as for long journeys on all two-wheelers).

The performance is fine, too, and close to that of the Japanese The X9 was barely slower than the Tmax and the Aprilia is not far off either, carrying more weight the Piaggio. Twist the throttle and the surges smoothly away stationary, fast enough to ahead of most cars and a hot hatch-beating 0-60mph pace. are no clutch or gear changes to about, either.

The fully variable-pulley belt transmission out the ratios for you. There’s thrust for confident high-speed riding, and that’s understanding the 70mph limit is stretched by riders, so the Atlantic is perfectly of daily 100-mile trips to on all types of road.

Aprilia has some changes to fuel as well as the intake and exhaust which have made the even smoother than the original. And some small to the transmission have created a motor for tight, round-town A lot of automatics can be hard work manoeuvring at walking pace, as the comes in jerkily or with a action, but you can execute full-lock on the Atlantic by controlling it with the alone — the pick-up is and utterly predictable.

The linked braking system is impressive because the levers a lot of pressure. And although scooter tend to be more comfortable less stopping power motorcyclists, Aprilia admits initial bite would be This has been achieved different brake pads, but at the of unacceptable disc wear. still working on it

Another is the amount of luggage space. the attractively-styled Atlantic appears to plenty of underseat storage, but the seat and you won’t find room to put a briefcase. Two crash just about fit after puzzle-like manipulation, so the optional box is really needed for the extra

You get plenty of gadgets to with, the comprehensive dash everything from fuel to ambient temperature and even lap (they just can’t themselves, the Italians), and overall the is enormously impressive. Now take account the price, which is ВЈ1,300 less than the alternatives, and this surely the most desirable of all the super-scooters to
