    Aprilia RS660


    100 HP is less than half what the 1100V4 this is based on makes.. so that passes a sniff test. Canít compare this engine to KTM really tho. KTM didnít design their twin specifically as a high reviving sport bike engine. Itís more adapted for that in the Duke and needs to suit ADV bikes, itís not really a true sports bike focused design.

    That weight is lighter than an R3!!!! Dayum. Now we are talking!!!! I need more exclamation points!!!!!

    Can I tell you all about my Panigalie 959 Corse and how much fun it is? Yes the quest for manageable power moved me to this Goldilocks of sports bikes. Now to drop the weight down to R3 racing weight. Seriously that would be amazing. After riding an R1 and Tuono I find myself going backwards in displacement and power to something ridable. I confess the looks of a bike has me signing titles and working trades. This bike shows promise of making it to my garage. I wonder if its a 360 crank or some v-twin power delivery crank-pin setup.

    Cool looking bike tho for sure.
    Yeah kind of what I was eluding too. I'll let someone else be the guinea pig.

    I had a thing against p-twins until I picked up an EX300. No interest in 'active aero' whatsoever but hopefully that's some Milan-only research bling and the rest of the bike makes it to production.
