Along with the RS 660 Limited Edition, Aprilia has also showcased other middleweight models
Aprilia has been rather busy at EICMA 2021, having showcased the RS 660 Limited Edition, Tuono 660 Factory, SR GT range of scooters and the Tuareg 660 at the motor show.
SR GT 125 & 200 –
The ‘urban adventure scooter’ from the Italian brand will serve in the maxi-scooter segment. It looks the business with tri-LED headlight setup, tinted flyscreen, stepped s eat, upswept exhaust and decently-sized wheels.
Sporting a LCD dash, 25-litre under-seat storage, 9-litre fuel tank, the scooters also come with engine start-stop function and long travel suspension.
While the SR GT 125 has a 125cc, single-cylinder heart pushing 15 HP and 12 Nm, the SR GT 200 has a 174cc (also a single-cylinder) engine making 17.6 HP and 16.5 torques.
Riding on 14-inch front and 13-inch rear wheels, the SR GT 125 weighs 144 kg, whereas the larger SR GT comes in at 148 kg.
Tuono 660 Factory –
This new top-spec version of the Tuono 660 range comes with a new and fully adjustable 41 mm Kayaba front fork and Sachs rear monoshock.
The Factory model also weighs 2 kg lesser than the regular variant thanks to it having a Lithium-ion battery. Additionally, the Aprilia Tuono 660 Factory also comes with cornering lights, a tail cowl and new paint finish.
However, this model continues to use the same 659cc motor (tuned to produce 100 HP) and the comprehensive electronics package.
Aprilia RS 660 Limited Edition –
Limited to 1500 units, this version of the middleweight supersport machine has been built to celebrate its first significant competitive triumph that came at the 2021 MotoAmerica Twins Cup.
Featuring a ‘Stars and Stripes’ livery, enlarged top fairing and a single-seat tail fairing, each unit of the Aprilia RS 660 Limited Edition will have a special tank badge with a serial number.
Mechanically, this limited edition model is identical to the regular RS 660 except for the fact that it uses reverse quick shift gears. Power comes from a 659cc, liquid-cooled, parallel twin motor putting out 98.6 BHP and 67 Nm.
Tuareg 660 –
The third model from the Noale-based firm to use the middleweight platform, this adventure motorcycle has long travel suspension, minimalist styling, and lots of electronics.
The same parallel twin motor used in the RS 660 powers the Tuareg 660, but has been detuned to produce a maximum of 80 HP and 70 Nm of torque.
