Aprilia RS 660

The first born in this brand-new generation of Aprilia bikes is RS 660.

For the first time in this category, a new bike offers a premium design and technical content deriving from Aprilia’s experience in top level competition at the service of enjoyment on the road combined with the brilliant performance of the 660 cc twin, capable of delivering 100 HP. The perfect formula for ultimate enjoyment is completed with a dry weight reduced to just 169 kg, numbers that well represent the character of this latest-generation Aprilia.

RS 660 is born to support young Aprilia customers on their individual motorcycle growth path: from the entry-level bikes, where Aprilia is a leader with the widest 125 range, right up to the V4 family comprising the Tuono and RSV4, considered definitive bikes, a point of arrival to which expert riders aspire. RS 660 rediscovers the pleasure and daily enjoyment of a bike with fairings, exploiting the dynamic qualities of a refined, fast and lightweight chassis, combined with the optimum performance of the engine and complete package of APRC active electronic controls, derived from RSV4 racing technology. This is the new concept of Aprilia sports versatility: a stand-out bike whatever the occasion, whether it is daily riding or something sportier, always with the same enthusiasm and enjoyment.

Aprilia RSV4 Factory and RSV4 RR

Unmistakeable in its design lucidity and applied technology, the RSV4 is conceived around a 65° V4 engine never before seen on a factory sport bike, and a frame which is the heir to a dynasty that has won 18 titles and 143 Grand Prix races in the 250 GP class, enhanced by the latest applied electronics systems to manage the engine and the bike’s dynamic performance. This is a true vocation of Aprilia, the first manufacturer to adopt the Ride-By-Wire multimap accelerator as standard, but above all the first to patent the APRC dynamic control system, with the exclusive features of self-calibration and wheelie control, in the spirit of maximum effectiveness at the service of ultimate performance. The Aprilia RSV4 1100 Factory adds to the exclusive range of electronic equipment with semi-active suspension, developed in collaboration with Öhlins and able to offer both feeling and performance for track riders as well as comfort and usability for riders on the road.

Aprilia Tuono 660 Concept

The Tuono 660 Concept fully expresses the new concept of sporting versatility introduced by Aprilia with the new family of motorcycles designed around the new 660 cc twin-cylinder.

A single motorcycle for total fun, from everyday life to sport. Excellent performance for everyone, refined frame and suspension and premium content, offering a new take on sportiness. In keeping with Aprilia’s tradition, the naked version is born from the RS 660. It has the same technical content and unparalleled refinement of frame and suspension, but with an even stronger road flavour, offered by the raised riding position on the large and wide handlebar. Aprilia has always offered a Tuono developed as a street version of the sportier RS. Aprilia was the first to offer the advantages of a naked bike developed from a sports frame and suspension and engine, endowing the Tuono with unparalleled riding qualities.

Tuono 660 Concept is the latest incarnation of this happy tradition and is a unique project of its kind: a beautiful and lightweight medium engine capacity twin-cylinder engine, with extremely high technological content for superlative performance and total enjoyment, with everything focused on an excellent power-to-weight ratio. The Tuono 660 Concept is for new riders, with its 34 kW version. However, it is also for young motorcyclists moving up from smaller engine capacities, looking for a high-level naked sports bike, ready for daily thrills and fun on the road and even for occasional trips to the track. All in line with the Tuono tradition.

Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 RR and Factory

Simply unrivalled. Heir to a family of motorbikes that have been voted some of the most adrenaline pumping and efficient bikes ever over the years, the Aprilia naked range achieves ultimate levels of performance and sophistication, thanks to the know-how Aprilia has acquired over years of successful racing and its experience with the Tuono, unbeatable on the track and lots of fun on the road. The Tuono V4 family of motorbikes is made up of two distinctly outfitted models. Tuono V4 1100 RR represents an exceptional thrill machine, the heir to a dynasty of naked sport bikes acclaimed by critics as the most effective and fastest bikes in the segment. Tuono V4 1100 Factory is the more exclusive version, dedicated to an extremely demanding public. This bike is equipped with components that are largely derived from the Aprilia RSV4. The Factory features a series of carbon fibre details as well as semi-active electronic suspension, the most advanced currently available on the market, developed by Öhlins and fine tuned with the collaboration of Aprilia engineers. Calibration is facilitated thanks to simple handlebar controls, for an even more thrilling riding experience whatever the field of use.
