It also has better weight/power ratio with the kerb weight now 181kg, and peak performance from the 660cc twin up 5hp from standard Tuono 660, now at 100hp. Torque figure remains at 67Nm.

The Aprilia Tuono 660 Factory delivers in terms of tech too: it offers a full suite of electronic controls with a Ride-by-Wire electronic throttle and six-axis inertial platform as standard. There’s traction, wheelie and cruise control, quickshifter, cornering ABS, adjustable engine braking and engine mapping, customisable ride modes and cornering headlight.
