The Aprilia Tuono 600 has been introduced in India by Piaggio to cater to the growing needs of Indian buyers. There’s a sudden interest in the middleweight category and the Tuono 660 fits in rightly.
In terms of styling, the Tuono 660 manages to look extremely impressive and the credit goes to the design inspiration it has taken from its elder sibling - the Tuono V4. Being a street bike, it still manages to looks quite sporty. The bike comes with a single-piece handlebar that has been positioned a bit higher. There's also a short windscreen to take care of high-speed windblast.
The Aprilia Tuono 660 gets its power from a 660cc parallel-twin liquid-cooled motor that features a 270-degree firing order to replicate the V4 sound. While this motor is the same as the one on the RS 660, it is slightly revised and gets a shorter final drive than the latter. It produces 95bhp of power as compared to the RS 660’s 100bhp unit. This motor is mated to a six-speed gearbox.
This Italian is loaded with some nice electronic aids. The Tuono gets ride-by-wire, traction control, wheelie control, cornering ABS, engine brake control, cruise control as well as five ride modes. The full-colour TFT display looks quite nice too.
The Aprilia Tuono 660 is available in three colour options - black, grey and gold. This bike will compete with the Triumph Street Triple RS which is more powerful and has better specs too.
