sports bikes. Fundamentally innovative, purposeful and sophisticated, the new
gem from Aprilia is endowed with a triple headlight and lines that speak the
language of Aprilia sports bikes.
The triple headlight element has been a
characteristic of high performance and ultra-advanced Aprilia bikes since 1998
with the début of the RSV Mille, the first super sport bike in the Superbike
category from the Noale-based manufacturer. It was a true aesthetic revolution
which was present on all the flagship Aprilias, even “marking” an extraordinary
bike like the RSV4, and which was adopted by the spectacular Tuono V4. Aprilia
RS660 was originally developed with racing philosophy and then fine-tuned for
the road, this bike sports the APRC system (Aprilia Performance Ride Control) which
is an advanced electronic control solution.
This advanced inertial six-axis navigation
system uses internal gyroscopes and acceleration sensors to understand the
engine’s status as it relates to the road in real time and provide instant
adjustments to help improve performance and safety. It is a total package
designed to ensure safety on roads and improved performance on the track
new generation of a versatile sportbike, Tuono 660 is a biproduct of the
amalgamation of the legendary Tuono V4 with the advanced technologies of the RS
660. Fun, easy and a heartbreaker on the aesthetics front, its potent
combination of power and extraordinary lightness delivers a truly breathtaking
and unique riding experience. Aprilia Tuono 660 boasts an incredible power to
weight ratio, Tuono 660 stands as a record breaker in its category and makes it
accessible sport bike suitable for any rider both on road and on the track. The
diecast aluminum frame and swing arm make for a truly glorious structure. The
latest generation fast and lightweight twin-cylinder facing engine comes
courtesy of the mighty Aprilia V4. Tuono 660 bears all the hallmarks that one
would expect of an Aprilia sport bike with sleek compact dimensions that
highlight its dynamic nature. Available in concept black, iridium grey and a
rather special acidic gold the new Tuono 660 is setting new standards of style
and aesthetics in the motorcycling world.
