The Tuono 660 Factory makes 5 hp more than the base Tuono 660
Didi Resources, the authorised distributor of Aprilia motorcycles in Malaysia officially introduced the new Aprilia Tuono 660 recently with an asking price of RM73,900.
Powered by a 660 cc forward-facing DOHC engine, the Tuono 660 Factory produces 100 hp and 67 Nm, which 5 hp more than the Tuono 660.
The Kayaba fork with 41 mm stanchions is fully adjustable in its compression and rebound damping and spring pre-load, while the Sachs shock with separate reservoir is also adjustable in its compression and rebound damping and spring pre-load.
The Tuono 660 Factory also offers a full suite of APRC electronic controls with a Ride-by-Wire electronic accelerator and six-axis inertial platform as standard.
The features that are part of the APRC electronic controls include Aprilia Traction Control (ATC), Aprilia Wheelie Control (AWC), Aprilia Cruise Control (ACC), Aprilia Quick Shift (AQC), Aprilia Engine Brake (AEB), as well as Aprilia Engine Map (AEM).
There are five customisable Riding Modes (three for road use and two for track use) to simplify life on-board. The rider needs only to choose the Riding Mode that best interprets his or her riding needs in order to automatically obtain the best settings in terms of traction control, wheelie control, engine brake, ABS and the other managed parameters.
Adoption of the inertial platform has also allowed for activation of the “bending lights” function, incorporated into the front LED light cluster complete with perimeter DRL (this pair of additional lights illuminate the entire corner, increasing visibility when leaning).
Compared to the Tuono 660, the Factory version here is further enhanced with the aggressive and sporty Factory Dark graphics and the presence of the single-seat tail fairing , painted in black and red and supplied as standard together with the passenger seat and footpegs. These pegs, like those of the rider, are the same as those of the Aprilia RS 660 but lighter.
Weighing 181 kg with an output of 100hp, the main highlight of the Tuono 660 Factory is that it offers better power-to-weight ration than the base Tuono 660, in case you're wondering why it is better than the latter.
That being said, the Aprilia Tuono 660 Factory is now available at all authorised Aprilia showrooms nationwide, namely Motoplex Petaling Jaya, Motoplex Penang, and Motoplex Johor Bahru.
