Bike Description for
Powered by a Euro 5 compliant, liquid-cooled, two-cylinder, DOHC mill displacing 660 cc, and producing 100 hp at 10,000 rpm and 67 Nm of torque at 8,500 rpm. Deriving its engine design from the front two cylinders from the Aprilia 1,100 cc V-four, the RS660 gets power to the ground via a six-speed gearbox equipped with an Aprilia Quickshifter and chain final drive.
Designed to get the most out of the engine performance, the RS660 delivers 80% of engine torque at 4,000 rpm, with 90% torque on tap when engine speed reaches 6,250 rpm. For comparison, the Yamaha MT-07 (RM38,888 in Malaysia), the RS660’s closest equivalent in terms of displacement and engine configuration, produces 74.8 PS at 9,000 rpm and 68.0 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm from 689 cc.
