Here’s a detailed breakdown of what each motorcycle brings to the table:

Aprilia RSV4 Factory

The RSV4 is Aprilia’s flagship offering and it is powered by a 1099cc liquid-cooled V4 engine which produces 217PS at 13,000 rpm and 125Nm at 10,500 rpm. For perspective, its main rival the Ducati Panigale V4 makes 217PS at 13,000 rpm and 124Nm of 10,000 rpm.

The bike is built on a Aluminium dual beam chassis and is suspended 43mm Öhlins NIX fork with compression and rebound damping at the front. In the rear, it is suspended on a fully-adjustable Öhlins TTX monoshock, with both front and rear being semi-active. Braking duties are handled by a dual 330-mm floating stainless steel discs at the front with Brembo Stylema radial callipers, and a 220 mm disc with Brembo calliper at the rear. 

Aprilia RS 660

The Aprilia RS 660 is the supersport offering in the 660 series and it comes with a similar design as the higher capacity Aprilia RSV4. Combined with the aggressive Aprilia graphics, the bike really stands out. It comes in 3 colours: Apex Black, Acid Gold and Lava Red

Powering the RS 660 is a 659cc liquid-cooled parallel twin engine that produces 100PS at 10,500rpm and 67Nm at 8500rpm.

Braking duties are handled by 320mm double discs at front and a 220mm disc at the rear with Brembo radial callipers. The bike rolls on 17’ inch wheels with Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa 2 tyres.

In terms of features, the RS 660 comes with a 5-inch TFT instrument console which shows essential readouts like speed, fuel level, tachometer readings and time, along with odometer and tripmeter readings. The bike features 5 riding modes, 3 fixed and 2 customizable ones. The bike also has a 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (that measures the bike’s lean angle) and the Aprilia Performance Ride Control suite which includes traction control, wheelie control, engine braking control, and cruise control.

The RS 660 goes up against the Honda CBR650R and the Kawasaki Ninja 650. However, in terms of pricing it is in fact Rs 95,000 more expensive than the much more powerful, litre-class bike, the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R!

Aprilia Tuono 660

Aprilia Tuono 660 Launched

The Aprilia Tuono 660 is the naked streetfighter sibling of the RS 660 and comes with the same engine, underpinnings and features. But the engine produces 95PS at 10,500rpm and 67Nm at 8500rpm.

Another key difference is that the Tuono features a wide handlebar and gives riders a more upright riding stance that is more suited to street use. It comes in 3 colours, Acid Gold, Concept Black and Iridium Grey.

The closest rival the Tuono 660 has is the Triumph Trident 660, which comes at a price of Rs 10,17,000. Other more powerful performance oriented naked alternatives models include the Kawasaki Z900 which costs Rs 9,38,000, the Triumph Street Triple 765 RS (Rs 11,81,000) and the Ducati Monster 900 which comes at Rs 12,95,000; All prices ex-showroom. 

Aprilia Tuareg 660

The Tuareg 660 is the ADV offering and it comes with a typical adventure bike like design and is offered in 3 colours: Atreides Black, Canyon Sand and Dakar Podium.

The bike comes with the same engine as the Tuono and the RS 660 but produces 80PS and 70Nm, which is 20PS less and 3Nm more. The torque-biassed tuning is done to suit the character of the ADV. 

Aprilia Tuareg 660 Launched

In terms of underpinnings, the bike is quite different from the others and features a fully-adjustable Kayaba 43mm inverted fork at the front with 240mm wheel travel. In the rear, the bike has a fully-adjustable Kayaba monoshock with 240 mm wheel travel. 

The bike rolls on a 21 inch spoke wheel at front and 18 inch spoke wheel in the rear. Braking is handled by two 300 mm floating discs at front with Brembo floating callipers with 4 pistons. In the rear the bike has a 260 mm disc with Brembo single piston calliper.

Features wise, the Tuareg 660 comes with a 5-inch TFT display and features traction control, engine braking control, and cruise control. The bike also comes with switchable ABS that can be turned off completely. Other than this, the bike gets turn-by-turn navigation if customers opt for the Aprilia MIA accessory which is a device that enables smartphone connectivity.

The Tuareg goes up against the Kawasaki Versys 650, Triumph Tiger Sport 660, Honda XL 750 Transalp and the Moto Morini X-Cape 650-X. All of which are much more affordable than the Tuareg

All the four bikes are priced at quite a premium, and are more of niche offerings in their respective segments. If you’re looking for a beautiful Italian middleweight with the iconic Aprilia badge, then these are for you. Otherwise, there are more affordable, more feature-packed British and Japanese alternatives in the market.
