An Italian Adventure Machine
Aprilia has a new adventure motorcycle in the works and it’s called the Tuareg, which is a name from the company’s history. The model hasn’t been officially announced yet, but the company is developing it. The bike was recently spotted testing.
According to Motoblog.it, a person recently spotted the bike out testing and was able to snag a photo of the bike. It is shown above. You can also check out the image below and what Motoblog.it has to say about it.
You can’t really see much from the images, but the bike will have the 660cc twin-cylinder engine that’s in the new RS660. It will of course be tuned differently for adventure touring purposes. I’d assume power will be a little lower and the way that power comes on should be far different.
The new bike will have the Tenere 700 in its sights. The chassis will need to be quite good, and the bike fully capable of some impressive off-roading feats to compete fully.
It will be interesting to see what Aprilia is able to do with this bike. The RS660 isn’t even available yet, and the company is already making the most of its engine and platform.
