Aprilia has revealed the Tuono 660, which according to the company, is a “child” of the Tuono 1100 and sibling to the RS 660. In simple words, the Tuono 660 is a sport naked version of the RS 660.
It doesn’t go full naked though; it still retains many of its clothes, I mean the panels, but shows a bit more compared to the RS 660. The handlebar is higher and the visor is slightly smaller and a bit upright as well. Also, the mirrors are mounted on the handlebar as opposed to fairing-mounted mirrors in the RS. Other than that, the rest of the motorcycle looks pretty much the same as the RS. There are three paint schemes to choose from: Concept Black, Iridium Grey and Acid Gold.
Features list includes LED headlights with running light signatures; color TFT display; adjustable Kayaba suspension; and electronics such as traction control, anti-wheelie control, and cruise control. The motorcycle also offers five Riding Modes (three dedicated to road and two for the track).
The 660 cc parallel-twin engine offers 70 kW (95 metric hp) as opposed to 73.5 kW (100 metric hp) in the RS. However, its kerb weight is the same as the RS at 183 kg (403.5 lbs). For new and younger riders, the Tuono 660 is also available in the 35 kW (47.5 metric hp) version.
