APRILIA RETURNS TO OFF-ROAD RIDING IN STYLE WITH ALL NEW TUAREG 660

Aprilia are really getting the most from its 659cc parallel twin engine with the release of the new Tuareg 660.

Sitting alongside its cubic capacity siblings, the RS 660 and Tuono 660, the Tuareg 660 bears a name that was introduced by Aprilia in 1985 and subsequently became legendary (so they say)...

Aprilia Tuareg 660 positioning

The Tuareg 660 is designed to withstand the toughest off-road riding while guaranteeing touring comfort and riding pleasure. With a very respectable weight/power ratio, excellent off-road performance, high-level chassis features on asphalt and best-in-class electronics, Aprilia claim the Tuareg raises the bar in the adventure category.

The 660 platform represents the start of a new era for Aprilia. One defined by lightweight and high-performance motorcycles with an attractive design and unique, unequivocally premium technological content. Following the sporty RS 660 and Tuono 660, Aprilia position this model as a true off-road bike.

• Acid Gold, which best highlights the Tuareg’s innovative design.

• Martian Red, with overarching tones of black and red, part of Aprilia's sporting heritage.

• Indaco Tagelmust is the most iconic, inspired by the colour scheme of the 1988 Tuareg Wind 600.

• ATC: Aprilia Traction Control, traction control that can be adjusted to 4 levels or disabled, characterised by finely tuned and high-performance logic and operation.

• ACC: Aprilia Cruise Control, to maintain the set speed without touching the throttle control, extremely handy when travelling.

• AEB: Aprilia Engine Brake, system to control engine braking when closing the throttle. adjustable to 3 levels.

• AEM: Aprilia Engine Map, 3 different mappings available to change the character of the engine and the way it delivers power. This does not change the maximum power delivered.
