The Tuono Unleashed: The 2021 Aprilia Tuono 660
Celebrated Italian motorcycle manufacturer Aprilia has seriously outdone itself lately. It recently announced that the new Tuono 660 would be available as part of the 2021 Aprilia line-up in North America. It’s a mid-sized sportbike that takes its DNA directly from the new Aprilia RS660 and from the larger Tuono V4. The result is a performance-focused sports machine with an impressive power-to-weight ratio that you could use for everyday riding too.
Underneath the wind-tunnel-designed fairings, the Tuono 660 hides a powerful engine. It’s a 659 cc parallel-twin, four-stroke unit that produces 100 horsepower and 49.4 lb-ft of torque. The powerful engine is kept in line with an advanced suite of riding aids that includes traction control, multi-map cornering ABS, cruise control, wheelie control, an engine braking system, 5 riding modes, and more. It also boasts a quick shifter too.
Other great features of this brand-new model include adjustable Kayaba suspension, an Akrapovic exhaust, carbon components, a single-seat tail cover, top quality brake and clutch levers, and more. It’s an advanced streetfighting machine from Aprilia, at a relatively affordable price too!
For 2021, the Tuono 660 is available in three distinctive color options: Apex Black, Lava Red, and Acid Gold.
The 2021 Aprilia Tuono 660 starts from $11,299 USD / $12,795 CAD.
