Another year, another EICMA, and another stunner from Noale. Last year, Aprilia displayed the RS 660 concept based on a new parallel-twin platform that they had developed. And yes, they did not refer to it as a bike, they referred to it as a platform. After a year-long wait, the first one came out in the form of the Aprilia RS 660. But staying true to their statement of the 660 being a platform, the Noale brand brought along another concept... Aprilia Tuono 660!

It was predictable that this might happen and yet, it cannot take anything away from the fact that the motorcycle has generated a whole lot of buzz among the motorcyclists of the world. A middleweight Aprilia sportbike which is light and powerful? That is too much to be left for just one motorcycle... and that is why, along with the RS 660, we got to see the Aprilia Tuono 660 in Milan.








Press Release:

The Tuono 660 Concept best expresses the new concept of sports versatility introduced by Aprilia with the new family of motorcycles designed around the new 660 cc twin-cylinder that, with the Tuono 660 Concept, is able to deliver 95 HP.

One single motorcycle for ultimate fun, from the everyday to sports riding. First-class performance accessible to all, a sophisticated chassis and premium content, for a new take on sports riding. In keeping with Aprilia tradition, the naked version is born from the RS 660. It features the same technical content and incomparable stand-out chassis, but with heightened road riding connotations, with a raised riding position on the large and wide handlebar.

A one of a kind project: a beautiful and lightweight mid-sized twin, with extremely advanced technological content for superlative performance and total enjoyment, with everything focused on an excellent power-to-weight ratio. The Tuono 660 Concept is ideal for new riders, as it is also available in a 34 kW version, but also for young motorcyclists moving up from smaller engine capacities and who seek a high-level naked sports bike, able to offer daily thrills and fun on the road and even support the rider during occasional track sessions. All in line with the Tuono tradition.
