When it comes to style, Aprilia is certainly one of the most talented motorcycle manufacturers the world has seen. The Atlantic 300 is another beautiful creation of the Italian manufacturer and its unique appearance combines practicality with sportiness in a tasty package.
But, exterior beauty is only the first part of the equation. The second one is even more interesting as the Aprilia Atlantic 300 hides a lot of modern technologies under its sporty skin.
The scooter is powered by a horizontal single-cylinder 4S 4V engine with a displacement of 278 cc. The engine cranks out 22.4 hp at 7500 rpm and 23.8 Nm of torque at 5750 rpm and is paired with an automatic CV transmission.
You also get a comfortable riding position, a well tuned chassis and a innovative suspension system which allows you to fully exploit the engine power.
