The Aprilia Tuono 660, the half-fairing variant of the supersport Aprilia RS 660, has been unveiled with full specifications and details. The Aprilia Tuono 660 uses much of the same technology and features as the RS 660, but with a naked-like bodywork. At the heart is the same 659 cc, parallel-twin engine that makes 95 bhp at 10,500 rpm and 67 Nm of peak torque at 8,500 rpm. The forward facing parallel-twin engine has been derived from the front two cylinders of the V4 engine of the Aprilia RSV4 1100.

Like the Aprilia RS 660, the Tuono 660 is also loaded with electronics in the same Aprilia Performance Ride Control system, that features eight-level traction control, wheelie control, cruise control, engine brake, cornering ABS and five selectable engine maps, with the electronics guided by information fed by a six-axis inertial measurement unit (IMU). The engine maps include three road and two 'track' riding modes. The Tuono 660 will also come with the Aprilia quickshifter offering clutch-less up and down shifts.
