A bare variant of RS 660 presented at last EICMA by Aprilia garnered much attention.
We knew it would come into production soon and to make our assumption more strong we could find it from the leaked Tuono 660 patents drawings.
Also, we have been talking about its sibling RS660 and how will it benefit if Aprilia brings it in naked version and position it right in the motorcycle market.
Plus in the past RS660 is also spied multiple times on the track and road.
However, now coming back to the Tuono 660 is expected to get the same technical specs. Right now we can only observe the patent drawings of the Tuono 660.
As per the press release from Aprilia, the bare sibling of RS 660 is suppose to get 95 hp, and RS 660 will come with 100 hp.
Well again it may change at the time of production and the Tuono 660 will match the power with its sibling. Similarly, Aprilia also stated 95 hp for the RS 660 in the concept stage.
The best part about the Tuono 660 is that it makes the rider more comfortable because of its wide handlebar and riding position.
And rider can enjoy long rides in the city as well as outside.
In general, it is more suitable for public roads when compared with the RS 660.
In Europe, Aprilia will bring the 48hp version for A2 license holders.
The concept of drawing doesn’t have mirrors or blinkers. All we could see are the LED headlights.
Tuono will also come with the new aerodynamic system. The objective of this new aerodynamic system is control heat and to keep it away from the rider as much a possible.
When it comes to paint scheme, it may get the silver-grey paint scheme. Tuono 660 comes equipped with the Brembo 320 double disc brake system and radially mounted brake callipers.
It doesn’t stop here as Aprilia has also put the cornering ABS, wheelie and traction control, adjustable suspension elements, colour TFT dash.
When it comes to the electronic package, comfort and electronic package, it will match with its faired sibling RS 660.
The leaked patents from the European Patent Office also show minimal change in the concept as there is a change in the exhaust and fairing.
In Europe, Aprilia plans to bring the Tuono 660 in summer 2020 and may well come with dealerships. However, Corona is likely to postpone the dates.
Now this means the model will soon be in Aprilia’s lineup.
Based on the 660 platform Aprilia could bring the ADVs too they had released a wind model of Tuareg 600.
We don’t have to scratch our heads as it is simple that Tuareg 600 will get the new parallel twin-cylinder 660 engine.
Aprilia RS660 is capable of making 100 hp which is in line with the expectations of rally model.
The Tuareg 600 will compete with other middleweight rally models like Yamaha Tenere 700, F70GS and 790ADV.
