The Aprilia Tuareg 660 promises very good off-road capability, but has a high price tag. 



There’s 240 mm ground clearance and fully adjustable 43 mm upside down forks with 240 mm travel and a Kayaba monoshock. The Tuareg 660 promises a combination of compact size, low kerb weight and usable performance to make it an impressive all-round adventure bike. Coupled with long travel suspension, 21-inch front and 18-inch rear wheel (wire spoke with tubeless tyres), high ground clearance and a lightweight tubular steel trellis frame, Aprilia India will have a lot of expectation riding on the Tuareg 660.

What will be interesting to see is how the Aprilia Tuareg 660 fares in the Indian market, considering its high price tag, which puts it more in line with adventure bikes positioned a segment or two higher, like the Triumph Tiger 900 range. The high price tag, compared to its immediate rivals like the Honda XL750 Transalp and the Suzuki V-Strom 800 DE, the Tuareg 660 certainly is an expensive proposition, and that will be its biggest challenge to make a mark in the Indian market.
