Aprilia Tuono 660 2021

Aprilia Tuono 660 2021

The Tuono delivers on the bends what the name promises. The sporty naked bike rides precisely and you enjoy the sporty corner chase. At the exit of the bend, however, one wishes for more emotion and adrenaline. The sporty expectation is naturally also created by the Tuono's racy appearance and cheeky demeanour. But this expectation is unfortunately not quite fulfilled in the saddle.

Aprilia RS 660 2021

In 2021, the Aprilia RS 660 can be seen as the last true 600cc supersport, because with its sporty seating position and high-quality chassis components, it hits the sweet spot between suitability for everyday use and trackday potential. Thanks to the comprehensive electronics package, nothing is left to be desired on the road or on the track - and you can't complain about the powerful two-cylinder anyway. A great package for all those for whom 200+ hp superbikes are too much for everyday use.
