Key points about the 2024 Aprilia RS660:

  • The 2024 RS660 is rumoured to have a revised engine with increased power output.
  • The bike may also get a new electronics package with launch control and wheelie control.
  • Other possible changes include revised suspension, new bodywork, and new colour schemes.
  • It is also possible that Aprilia will introduce a new variant of the RS660, such as a race-spec model or a touring model.

The 2024 Aprilia RS660 is not officially announced, so there is no concrete information about what new features it will have. However, based on the rumours and speculations circulating, we can make some educated guesses.

What is expected in the new 2024 RS660?

One of the most likely changes is a revised engine. The current RS660’s 659cc parallel-twin engine produces 100 horsepower, which is a bit on the low side for a modern sportbike. It is possible Aprilia will increase the engine’s power output for the 2024 model, or they may introduce a new engine altogether.

Another possible change is a new electronics package. The current RS660 comes standard with ABS, traction control, and cruise control. However, some of the competition, such as the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R, offers more advanced features such as launch control and wheelie control. It is possible that Aprilia will add these features to the RS660 for the 2024 model.

Finally, the 2024 RS660 may also receive some cosmetic changes. The current bike’s design is already very sharp, but Aprilia could make some minor tweaks to improve the looks. For example, they could change the shape of the fairings or add new paint schemes.
