New for 2022 the Aprilia Tuono 660 has been given a Factory overhall bringing the bike in line with the class leading RS660 in terms of spec and performance.
The base-model Tuono 660 features a Kayaba 41mm upside-down fork and Kayaba shock with rebound damping and preload adjustment. The Factory improves on this with a fully adjustable KYB fork and an oil reservoir-equipped Sachs shock. Both ends offer compression adjustments in addition to the rebound damping and preload settings, allowing users to fine tune the Tuono 660 Factory to their riding style.
In the engine department, Aprilia have upgraded the mapping for the liquid-cooled, 659cc parallel-Twin resulting in a 5-horsepower boost. The Tuono 660 Factory now peaks at 100 horsepower (at 10,500 rpm) while retaining the 67Nm at 8,500 rpm torque figure. The 270-degree firing order and strong mid-range are retained, but the updates make the engine more versatile than ever.
The Factory also benefits from weight-saving efforts. featuring a lithium battery, the Tuono 660 Factory weighs in at just 181kg. The new battery alone saves nearly 2kg vs the standard model and further improves the naked bike’s already impressive power-to-weight ratio.
The Tuono 660 Factory is equipped with Aprilia Performance Ride Control (APRC) suite of electronic rider aids. The packed electronics suite boasts adjustable traction control, engine brake, and engine maps. Five customizable ride modes, a quickshifter, and cruise control optimize performance and efficiency while multi-map cornering ABS and Aprilia’s cornering lights enhance safety.
