Aprilia’s Tuono 660 Could Be Here As Soon As Spring 2021

Tuono Junior!

Fancy yourself an Aprilia RS660 but want something more comfortable to ride? Sources state that the Tuono 660 is expected to come in the spring of 2021!

The Aprilia Tuono is my favorite motorcycle and my next big purchase. It takes the highly successful RSV4 platform and brings some comfort elements to the bike to make it a more rider/commute friendly package for the public roads. The engine remains the same as the RSV4, and many of the race elements are kept on the motorcycle, but the ergonomics take a major shift with the addition of higher handlebars, an upright seating position, and a shift in peg position to make this a much more comfortable sport touring-oriented version of the RS.

What does this mean for the 660 Tuono? Well, if the RS660 was too sporty for your taste, the Tuono is the perfect option for a comfortable, yet sporty ride. Assume it will share the same engine, frame, and most features as the RS660 and package it into an upright riding position with the updated ergonomics, much like the full-size Tuono does for the RSV4.

Per Rideapart, reports from India state that the Tuono 660 could be available in India as soon as next spring once the RS660 hits their dealerships. If the bike is hitting in India Q1-Q2 2021, expect Piaggio group to announce a European release even earlier than that.

    1. Hi Kurt!

      The RS660 will be in Canada shortly and though we don’t have confirmation of the Tuono yet, I would hazard to guess it will be in all of North America at about the same time— IF our sources are correct.

      The RS660 is priced at $11,300 US so I would figure the Tuono will be around there too.

  1. Considering the RS660 comes in at $13,495 (Acid Gold $200 more), the Tuono 660 should be between $12k and $12.5k. If you look at the price of the RSV4 vs the Tuono 1100, the Tuono 660 should actually be coming in around $11k but I doubt they would sell if for so little when they can instead just price it slightly lower than the RS.

    However, we need to remember that, likely soon after the Tuareg 660 arrives, we will be getting a Factory version of both the RS and Tuono 660s with fully adjustable Ohlins suspension, some carbon fibre parts and several more upgrades for about 20-25% more $$.

    For me, I’m willing to wait up to 4 years for either a Tuareg 660 or Tuono 660 Factory.
