Limited Edition celebrates Aprilia’s success in the AMA National Road Racing Championship’s Twins Cup in 2021.
Aprilia RS660 Stars and Stripes Limited Edition
It is the definitive symbol of America and it now adorns a limited edition Aprilia RS660 middleweight sports bike.
To commemorate Aprilia’s success in the AMA National Road Racing Championship’s Twins Cup in 2021, with Kaleb de Keyrel riding, Aprilia has announced an RS660 adorned with a Stars and Stripes paint job.
It’s not just the paint job that’s different. The gearbox can be electronically configured for either road (one down, five up) or track (one up, five down). A rear seat cowl is standard and the fairing has been enlarged to create better air flow.
Mechanically, the RS660 remains the same, which means 100bhp and 49.5lb.ft of torque, driving through a quick-shift, six-speed gearbox. A full suite of electronics is there to look after you and braking is handled by Brembo.
