Not The Best Quality, But That’s the RS 660
Aprilia will come out with the RS 660 in the near future. I reported on this bike in March, and it looks like the company has one out testing. A recent video posted on the Aprilia Cup Facebook Page shows a quick look of the RS 660 at the racetrack.
Though the person shooting the video did so in verticle orientation (a major pet peeve of mine) and the video itself is pretty poor quality, you can actually get a good look at the bike. The video was shot at Circuito de Imola in Italy. MoreBikes noted that the bike was also spotted at the Vallelunga Circuit earlier this year.

All this points to a reveal that should be coming fairly soon. While an official reveal date for the bike is still unclear, the RS 660 shouldn’t take that long to be ready to go.
The RS 660 is an interesting bike for Aprilia. The company usually produces high-displacement hardcore racing machines, so this middleweight sportbike is a cool addition. It will offer the Aprilia experience to a whole new segment of the market.
I’m excited to see where this bike falls in terms of price. It will likely be expensive when compared to the competition, but Aprilia’s machines have always been that way.
