The Aprilia Concept RS 660 is a departure from the Italian brand’s model lineup. Joining the likes of other brands that are producing rider friendly and multi-fun-faceted machines, Aprilia aims to offer riders a motorcycle that serves up sporty excitement on the road, the commute, and the track.
Powered by a 660cc parallel twin cylinder engine, housed in an aluminum frame and subframe, the RS 660 features a sleek and aerodynamic style. Rider ergonomics include a large seat, moderately positioned rear sets and top yoke mounted handlebars.
The Concept RS 660 is designed to facilitate the rider that doesn’t need a large capacity bike or the price tag that accompany them. It’s attractive and looks every bit a part of the family, in company with its siblings, the Aprilia’s Tuono and RSV4 Factory.
