Aprilia RS660 and Tuono 660

Last year, EICMA had seen a concept version of the aggressively styled iconic true blue Italian superbike¬† Aprilia RS 660, and 2019 has brought us a fully loaded production-spec version. There are very few deviations from the original concept, and that is what makes this motorcycle even more exciting. Aprilia has gone all out Race replica on this 660 cc parallel-twin driven motorcycle that churns out 100 hp and weighs just 169 kg. It gets an all aluminium frame and swing-arm, which combine with its torquey middleweight engine, to give it a formidable power to weight ratio. The bike was accompanied by its naked twin, the Tuono 660 which, as of now, is a concept waiting to be developed. We can expect the base version to debut at next year’s show.
