The union of the legendary Tuono V4 1100 with the cutting-edge RS 660 is a collision of two eras. That process culminated in the stunning 2023 Aprilia Tuono 660 Sports Motorcycle, a motorcycle that will change how you look at things for good—astronomical term for a collision between stars. With the Tuono 660, you get the best of both worlds: a motorbike that combines the timeless design of the Tuono V4 1100 with the cutting-edge technology of the RS 660.
2023 Aprilia Tuono 660 Sports Motorcycle – Features and Specs
Digital bells and whistles
The Tuono 660’s state-of-the-art electronics are the envy of the superbike world. The Ride-by-Wire throttle makes it easy to adjust the advanced powertrain response control (APRC) electrical system’s multi-stage traction control, anti-wheelie, cruise control, engine braking, ABS, and engine mapping options.
The Aprilia V4 is a powerful engine with a contemporary, fast, and lightweight twin-cylinder front design. Its 270-degree crank makes for an unpleasant exhaust note, but its lower final ratios than the RS 660 provide for brisk acceleration and responsive handling.
Daytime Running Lights
The bike’s triple front LED lights and daytime running lights make nighttime and daytime riding safer and more efficient.
It’s what you take away that adds up
The Aprilia Tuono 660, like the RS 660, has an impressive power-to-weight ratio. With a record-low wet weight of less than 183 kg for 95 HP, this naked sport bike is within reach of every rider.
Shaped by the wind
The Tuono 660 boasts the sleek, compact dimensions that befit an Aprilia sport bike, drawing attention to the bike’s lively personality. As a bonus, it steals the RS 660’s innovative double fairing for enhanced aerodynamics without giving any credit to the substantial wind tunnel testing that went into its development.
It all starts with the frame
The Tuono 660’s die-cast aluminum swing arm and frame are works of art in and of themselves. The chassis has been modified by altering the geometry of the steering column to improve handling and responsiveness, and the Kayaba adjustable suspension has a unique setting.
Standard electronics that are anything but standard:
The Tuono 660 Factory has full APRC electronic controls, including Ride-by-Wire acceleration and a six-axis inertial platform. Quick Shift, Cruise Control, Engine Brake, Traction Control, Engine Map, and Wheelie Control are other features included as standard equipment.
5 Riding Modes:
Select one of the five available Riding Modes based on the conditions or your preferences. The bike’s traction and wheelie control, engine braking, and anti-lock brakes (ABS) will be adjusted accordingly.
The stock suspension of the Tuono 660 is sporty and great for riding. The Sachs shock absorber has a separate reservoir that allows you to adjust compression, rebound damping, and spring pre-load. At the same time, the Kayaba fork also will enable you to change all three independently.
The multi-map cornering ABS found on the Tuono 660 Factory utilizes a proprietary algorithm to continuously analyze critical factors to improve braking and ABS intervention when cornering. Several elements, such as lateral acceleration, the amount of force applied to the front brake lever, lean, pitch, and yaw angle, are taken into account to optimize the braking action for stability and deceleration.
Tuono 660 factory is lighter, more refined, and with more equipment:
Aprilia’s Factory models have always been the pinnacle of production, and they’re meant for the most discriminating and talented riders who can appreciate the finer nuances. In line with Aprilia’s 660 projects, the new Tuono 660 may be had with the factory set-up, making it one of the most powerful productions motorcycles ever to utilize a parallel twin-cylinder engine. The best and most fun to use when traveling, it is a natural and readily available source of feelings.
A total of around 3 pounds may be cut by switching to a lithium-ion battery (now weighing 399 lbs).
Coordination between the IMU and the RS-style multi-mapping, cornering, and ABS of the APRC suite.
The Factory model has Sachs oil-reservoir rear shocks and fully adjustable KYB forks.
The RS 660 rear seat cowl with just one passenger is what the Factory will employ to get that slim look.
Power to weight ratio:
The adoption of a lightweight lithium battery that helps to reduce the overall weight by roughly 3 lbs. achieves one of the primary aims of all the new Aprilia 660s, and already at the top of the Tuono 660, which is to increase further the weight/power ratio (the weight now 399-lbs). The engine’s grunt during acceleration is additionally worsened by installing a shorter final drive and a pinion with 16 teeth instead of the 17 teeth seen on the Tuono 660.
You spoke, we listened:
The electronic Ride-by-Wire accelerator and six-axis inertial platform that make up the rest of the advanced rider control (APRC) suite are standard features on the Tuono 660 Factory. It is what you can expect from the Tuono 660 Factory APRC: Aprilia Quick Shift (AQS) is an electronic gearbox that allows for rapid gear changes without closing the throttle or using the clutch; ATC (Aprilia Traction Control) is an adjustable wheelie control system; AWC (Aprilia Wheelie Control) is an anti-wheelie control system; ACC (Aprilia Cruise Control) maintains the set speed without acting on the throttle; (Aprilia Engine Brake).
Additional features with the addition of the IMU
Additionally, the Tuono 660 Factory has an IMU-aligned Multimap Cornering ABS. Extremely small and lightweight, this technology may improve braking and ABS intervention in sharp turns. It does this by continually monitoring various factors—including lateral acceleration, the pressure applied to the front brake lever, and the vehicle’s lean, pitch, and yaw angle—and adjusting the brakes’ action to optimize the combination of deceleration and stability.
