Aprilia had showcased the RS 660 and Tuono 660 concept at the EICMA 2019. While the fully-faired motorcycle of the two is already out there, the naked one isn’t. However, it seems that it will soon be because a production-ready version of the Tuono 660 has been recently spied in Italy.
This is said to be the first time when the Aprilia Tuono 660 has been spotted. It can be clearly seen in the spy image that the motorcycle is wearing no camouflage whatsoever. This is a big indication that it is a production-ready model and, perhaps, Aprilia is getting done with some final testing.
Since the Tuono 660 is the naked sibling of the RS 660, it is bound to have identical parts and components. For example, in terms of styling, the Tuono 660 has the same 3-light headlight setup with LED DRLs. And if we talk about the hardware, it is likely to feature the same suspension and braking arrangements, too.
Aprilia is also expected to include a bunch of electronics in the overall package. The Tuono 660 should come equipped with the latest generation APRC package that includes cornering ABS, engine braking control, wheelie control, traction control, bi-directional quickshifter, and three different riding modes.
In fact, powering the Tuono 660 is the same 660cc parallel-twin engine that is being used in the RS 660. It is capable of producing 100 hp at 10,500 rpm and 67 Nm at 8,500 rpm. Aprilia might make some changes in the engine to suit the character of the Tuono 660.
