The Tuareg finally completes Aprilia’s 660 cc model range in Malaysia
Didi Resources, the authorised distributor of Aprilia bikes in Malaysia today took the wraps off the 2022 Aprilia Touareg 660 middleweight adventure bike.
Priced at RM75,900, the Aprilia Tuareg 660 is powered by a tweaked version of the 660 cc parallel-twin engine which is also found in the Aprilia RS 660 and Tuono 660, producing 80hp and 70Nm of torque.
Complementing the engine is a Ride-by-wire throttle management system, an airbox with front air vent, 2,048 mm throttle bodies, as well as a Multiplate wet clutch with a slipper system.
Built on a Frame in steel tubing and a built-in subframe, the Tuareg also comes with aluminium engine connection plates which contribute to the overall lightweight nature of the bike.
Weighing 204 kg, the Tuareg 660 measures 2,200 mm long, 965 mm wide and comes with a seat height of 860 mm. While the fuel tank capacity is rated at 18-litres, fuel consumption readings stand at 4.0-litres per 100 km.
As far as the suspension system goes, we have a fully adjustable upside-down Kayaba fork with counterspring and wheel travel of 240 mm in front.
At the rear, the Tuareg is fitted with an aluminium swingarm and fully adjustable Kayaba monoshock suspension.
Stopping power comes in the form of 300 mm floating double discs, and a Brembo floating calliper with double opposing pistons in front. As for the rear brakes, we have a 260 mm disc and a single piston Brembo calliper.
Also part of the package is the APRC suite of rider assistance features which includes ATC (traction control), AEB (engine brake), AEM (engine maps), ACC (cruise control), as well as four riding modes comprising two set modes and two customisable ones.
Offered in three colour options – Indalco Tagelmust, Acid Gold, and Martian Red, the Aprilia Tuareg 660 is fully imported from Italy.
According to Didi Resources, only seven units of the Tuareg 660 are available for sale for the year 2022. However, it is said that more units will be brought in when the demand rises over time.
Those who wish to get a first-hand riding experience on the Tuareg 660 or the Aprilia SR-GT scooter can head to the brand’s roadshow which will be happening at the FTW Dirt Track in Bandar Gamuda Cove near Cyberjaya tomorrow.
