A world that is moving faster every day needs vehicles that can keep up. And
a world where open spaces are rapidly filling up needs vehicles that can nip
through traffic, park on a sixpence, and carry maximum load in minimum
dimensions. These are exactly the needs the Aprilia Atlantic Sprint is
designed to satisfy.
With the arrival of the new 400 cc engine, the
Atlantic Sprint range offers more choice than ever, with not just one
scooter but an entire family to choose from, all built to fulfil your every
need, and all offering the legendary style and superb ride that have become
trademarks of Aprilia motorcycles and scooters.
The Atlantic Sprint opens up new horizons in personal mobility, thanks to
advanced, clean running high performance engines (both Euro 3 homologated),
standard-setting comfort and unmistakeable style.
Its agility and sparkling performance make the Atlantic Sprint unbeatable
around town. Roominess, comfort, excellent wind protection, and large
capacity (400 and 500 cc), high-performance engines mean that the Atlantic
Sprint is great on country roads, and a classy performer on long distance
The Atlantic Sprintís styling is a passport to success; clear-cut
no-frills lines, elegant colours, and a dynamic but elegant look that hides
advanced scooter technology. The Atlantic Sprint is Apriliaís answer to
scooter riders who have been waiting for a fast and safe machine that
promises high performance urban commuting without compromising on comfort.
Rider and passenger benefit from a high level of wind protection, a large
load-carrying capacity, excellent ergonomics, and active and passive safety.
In fact, everything about the Atlantic Sprint has been designed and made for
unbeatable comfort without compromising the natural, instinctive ride and
unmistakable style that defines all Aprilia scooters.
In addition to guaranteeing exceptional comfort, the generous seat gives you
great control and a truly instinctive ride.
The Atlantic Sprintís footboard has been carefully tapered where you put
your feet on the floor, to ensure quick, easy and firm contact with the
The ample leg shield and high windshield offer excellent protection against
the wind and rain.
The luggage rack incorporates passenger grab handles and accepts the
optional top box without additional mounting plates or brackets.
Load carrying capacity plays an important role in choosing a scooter. The
Atlantic Sprint boasts a generous lined and illuminated under-seat storage
compartment which even incorporates a convenient power socket for charging
your mobile phone.
A second, lockable storage compartment is housed in the rear of the leg
If even this volume of storage is not enough, you can easily add an optional
45 litre top box, directly on the standard luggage rack.
The unrivalled quality to price ratio achieved by the Atlantic Sprint
emerges clearly not only from its exceptional performance and finish but
from its impressive level of standard equipment. When you buy an Atlantic
Sprint you get a very complete scooter at a very incomplete price.
Everything you need comes as standard on the Atlantic Sprint, including
an electronic remote control anti-theft system. This highly advanced system
is the first of its kind ever fitted on a scooter. The system acts as an
engine immobiliser and sounds a highly audible alarm and flashes the hazard
warning lights if any attempt is made to move the scooter.
The Atlantic Sprintís chassis embodies Apriliaís race-winning expertise
and years of experience in scooter manufacturing. The extremely robust
chassis is a perfect match for the high performance engine. The frame and
suspension are designed for comfort, agility and safety. The frame itself is
of proven structural rigidity and is coupled with a highly efficient fork
and shock absorbers.
The Aprilia design team has succeeded in creating a scooter with perfect
weight distribution, exceptional riding feel and manoeuvrability plus
The high strength tubular steel frame incorporates a closed double cradle
designed for maximum torsional rigidity and robustness. This rigid and
efficient frame gives the Atlantic Sprint faultless stability even at high
The front fork with its 35 mm stanchions ensures precision steering and
great suspension with a generous wheel travel of 105 mm.
The engine and transmission assembly, which acts as the rear swingarm, is
damped by two gas-filled shock absorbers. Spring preload is adjustable to 5
positions, to allow you to achieve maximum suspension efficiency for all
levels of load and all types of surface. Wheel travel of 90 mm ensures a
smooth ride over even the roughest roads.
Another factor contributing to the Atlantic Sprintís excellent ride is
its 14 inch wheels and generous size tubeless tyres (120/70 at the front and
140/60 at the rear).
In conjunction with the rigid frame, these wheels and tyres give the
Atlantic Sprint excellent stability and make control intuitive even for the
novice. So despite its impressive performance, the Atlantic Sprint is
beautifully easy to ride! The generous tyres even enhance the effect of the
suspension in smoothing out rough roads as well as guaranteeing maximum
safety during braking.
Brakes, of course, are another of the Atlantic Sprintís strong points.
Integral braking provides reliable, safe and gradual control over all
surfaces. The Atlantic Sprint features a 260 mm diameter front disc with
floating caliper and three parallel pistons, and a 190 mm rear disc.
The principle of integral braking is simple. When you pull on the left
hand lever (the rear brake lever) you operate not just the rear brake but
one of the three front brake pistons too. A special valve distributes
pressure between the two wheels to maximise effect and make braking easy to
control even for inexperienced riders. Integral braking dramatically reduces
stopping distances and gives you a far greater feeling of safety and control
than conventional braking systems.
A choice of two large capacity engines satisfies all possible needs, from
urban commuting to long range touring. With the arrival of the 400 cc
engine, the Atlantic Sprint family has become one of the widest scooter
ranges in Europe.
Both the 500 and the 400 engine are packed with the latest technology and
deliver amazing performance for their respective sizes, together with
impressively low emissions, a totally vibration-free ride and unprecedented
Both engines incorporate advanced, four valve cylinder heads, liquid
cooling and the latest generation of automatic transmission.
An advanced fuel injection system delivers low fuel consumption and silky
smooth power for maximum comfort and riding pleasure. A dynamic balancer
shaft minimises vibration. Miserly fuel consumption and a large capacity
tank combine to give the Atlantic Sprint excellent autonomy and extended
intervals between refuelling.
The 500 cc engine is a single cylinder, liquid cooled, four stroke
powerplant with a single overhead cam and a four valve head.
Thanks to a maximum power of 29 kW at 7500 rpm and maximum torque of 43
Nm at 5500 rpm, the Atlantic Sprint 500 delivers unbeatable performance,
easily equivalent to many multi-cylinder motorcycles. In fact, impressive
power plus extremely light weight gives it one of the highest levels of
performance for any scooter of the same engine size.
The 400 cc engine is a new introduction to the Atlantic Sprint range for
2007. Based on exactly the same design technology as the 500, it differs
from it only in displacement, which is reduced from 460 cc to 399 cc. With
25 kW of power and 37 Nm of torque, the 400 cc engine offers a level of
performance almost as high as its bigger brother, but the Atlantic Sprint
400 can be ridden by A2 class licence holders (under Italian legislation).
Less capacity can also mean significant savings on insurance (up to 40% on
the Italian market).
Both engines are equipped as standard with a three way catalytic
converter and conform easily to Euro 3 emission control standards.
To complete the Atlantic Sprintís, already generous level of equipment,
Aprilia also offers a wide range of accessories, including:
large windshield with hand-guards, 50 litre tunnel bag, passenger backrest,
Street Case II 47 litre top box in matching paint finish, 35 litre City top
box in matching paint finish personalised for Atlantic, optional top box
