The flagship Factory variant will sit atop Aprilia’s Tuono 660 middleweight naked bike range above the standard LAMS approved version, which continues from $21,490. The current full-power Tuono 660 will be effectively replaced by the Factory grade when it launches later in the year.
The bike also joins the fully faired RS 660, priced from $22,590 in LAMS configuration or $22,590 with the full-power tune, as well as the Tuareg 660 adventure bike ($22,530) which draws power from a similar 659cc parallel-twin engine.
The Factory debuts a unique black and red colour scheme, as well as fully adjustable Kayaba suspension up front (110mm travel) and a Sachs rear shock with a remote reservoir at the rear (130mm travel).
Thanks to the inclusion of a lithium battery, the Factory is two kilograms lighter than the standard Tuono 660, weighing in at 181kg (wet).
The bike retains its 659cc parallel-twin delivering 70kW (100hp) and 67Nm, matched with an up/down quickshifter and advanced rider modes with a six-axis inertial measurement unit (IMU) for cornering ABS and lean-angle sensitive traction control.
