Aprilia’s Factory bikes are all about high-quality components, big power figures and low weight. Aprilia Tuono 660 Factory is no exception.
The Tuono 660 Factory boasts more sophisticated suspension (Kayaba forks and Sachs shock, both fully adjustable) than the stock bike.
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.
Availability and price of both bikes is still to be confirmed at the time of writing.
