Aprilia Tuono 660 set to join RS with Spring 2021 launch

Its been a bit quite on the Aprilia front this Autumn but word on the street says the new Aprilia Tuono 660 is coming in Spring

Of all the motorcycle manufacturers, it seems Aprilia is taking things a little slower than its rivals when it comes to getting systems up and running during this COVID-19 era.

However, it seems we aren’t too far away from getting our hands on its next new launch - the Tuono 660.

Revealed in lightly-veiled concept form at the 2019 EICMA show, the 2020 edition of the Milan exhibition would have likely seen the latest model to be based on the firm’s 660 platform revealed in production form.


However, while other manufacturers have used November to act as a de facto EICMA by launching a variety of new models over the four week period, it has been suspiciously quiet over at Piaggio, with none of its brands coming out to play with some new metal.

It comes after the RS 660 found itself shuffled back from an original May launch to October, so it stands to reason that the timescale thus applies to the Tuono 660, with a bow scheduled for Spring 2021, according to OmniMoto.

Spy shots have already confirmed what we can expect from the Tuono as a more comfortable and practical version of the RS, which received rave reviews for the 660 platform’s eager engine and sublime dynamics.

It could turn out to be a two-pronged launch for Aprilia though, with the Tuareg ADV version seen doing the rounds in spy shots to suggest it’s not far away either.

Aprilia is expected to reveal a facelifted, Euro5 compliant RSV4 and Tuono 1100 in the coming weeks too, while it is set to confirm a new 350-450cc platform will be developed for a 2023 launch.
