    Aprillia Atlantic 500 Vs. Piaggio X9 500


    Hi Everybody!
    I need help from all of you to give opinion between Atlantic 500 and Piaggio X9 500. I believed they are using the same engine, as I had read on the websites they are so closed to each other. The only things are the price, styles, Dealer in U.S., the Piaggio X9 500 I can't find any Dealers U.S. My primary choice is Atlantic 500, but still waiting for another few months...so What do you think??????Should I go for Piaggio X9 500.

    I read a review in a London paper (read on internet) on the Atlantic which confirmed that it uses the Piaggio engine, and also pointed out that the 500cc scooters Piaggio made and sold in Europe with the same engine were all bought back by Piaggio as they had serious handling problems! It further pointed out that dispite this, Aprilia using the same engine was able to build a similiar scooter with far supperior handing, and possibly exceeding that the Honda Silverwing!
