I really like the Aprilia Atlantic 200.

What's the gas mileage on this one? Is it a good one?

Only averages slightly over 70 mpg. Top end (so far) just over 90 MPH on an accurate speedo...

That should do it!

How much does it weigh? How's the handling?

16" wheels... handles like a bike until something scrapes (almost said drags...)

Under 400... not sure on the weight.




Did I mention it has a 180 kit, ported, lightened weights in the variator, reduction gearing in the Tranny?

For the right price..... it could be yours!!



Movin' on to a Bella

John....where do you think Aprilia made their original fortunes? Building excellent scooters.



You gonna put frame sliders on it?

Blake, I might just do that!

What's the difference between the Atlantic and Scarebeo???

At some point, I'd like to add a side car to it too. Something like what these guys do: http://www.armec.com/tremolino.html

I dunno about you, but after modding my Stella its supposed to be good for 70 + mph. Anything that fast is worthy of a 'stich IMO

Of course not, sure it hurts just the same. Have you heard of sarcasm


Seriously though, the whole point for me if I were to ride a scooter would be to shed all my tons of gear, just take my chances and rely on the 20somethin years of ridin ability as my protection. Sure that's a risk, but I'm okay with that, I'll take my chances on the few times I go without gear. It's what I assume it feels like for a smoker who has quit, to just smoke one cig, once and a while.

I've got full leathers, am on my 3rd Stich, and always wear full face. But when I commute to work everyday, and have to look presentable for multiple meetings in 98 degree heat, I'll go without all gear- except gloves and helmet (never shorts mind you). I think I've come full circle in a way. Comfort sometimes gives me more confidence and awareness then sweating to death in my Stich just to go for a short commute, especially if I have to wear nice clothes to a meet. I've peeled my stich off, even my perf leathers and forget it, my clothes are sticking to me. Sometimes it just becomes too much work, and kills the whole point of riding anyway.

I also take less chances when I'm protectionless, and it's only a couple dozen times a year during the hot months.
