2024 APRILIA RS 660 TROFEO AVAILABLE NOW FOR PURCHASE

PREPARED BY APRILIA RACING WITH ALL THE EXPERIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY OF THE FACTORY THAT HOLDS 54 WORLD TITLES, THE TRACK-ONLY EDITION RETURNS WITH A 2024 PRODUCTION, 28 TOTAL COMING TO THE USA AND CANADA

FROM THE PROVEN CAPABILITY OF THE STANDARD RS 660, RACE-FOCUSED WEIGHT PREPARATION AND POWER ARE THE FOCUS FOR PERFORMANCE ON TRACK

After its début on the track in the single-brand championship, the Aprilia RS 660 Trofeo was launched to the masses for any enthusiast who wants to have fun on the track with the category reference twin-cylinder sport bike from Noale. The limited production, which happens between race seasons, is made directly by the Aprilia Racing department as a part of the Factory Works program, and returns to the public in 2024, with a dedicated livery update, in a production of just 28 units for North America.

Already agile and lightweight in the street-legal version, the Trofeo transformation uses high-level components and exploits the perfect balanced between chassis architecture, engine, and electronics to the fullest. Like its street-legal sibling, it raises the bar in the category, representing the perfect sport twin-cylinder proposal, with an outstanding weight/power ratio and a leading electronics package for the segment.

Starting from the already high-performance standard RS 660, the upgrades begin with the electrical system, simplified by eliminating the ignition switch assembly and ABS. The braking system is simplified with independent lines. The ABS control unit, however, remains on the bike and connected to exploit the strategies of the integrated electronic system. The ECU is reprogrammed in Race version, with mapping (all “full power”) developed by Aprilia Racing and dedicated exclusively to track use, as well as being calibrated for the SC Project racing exhaust. The color TFT dashboard is reprogrammed and integrated by a dedicated button block on the left-hand side.

The suspension can count on a front fork with “Misano by Andreani” internal cartridge, adjustable in hydraulic compression and rebound damping and preload. The Öhlins AP948 rear shock absorber features hydraulic preload, compression, and rebound damping adjustment.

The chassis architecture is upgraded, with a lowered riding position thanks to the racing upper steering yoke and adjustable semi-handlebars. The footpegs are adjustable and dismountable so each rider can achieve optimum ergonomics. The fairing is in fiberglass.

The engine upgrades have brought power up to 105 HP, a record value for an inline twin-cylinder, whereas dry weight has dropped to 153 kg. The secondary air system and the thermostat are eliminated, whereas aluminum guards are installed for the clutch cover and alternator, as well as a specific Sprint Filter air filter. As always, working alongside Aprilia Racing in every one of its projects are top-level partners such as Castrol, Zanasi Group, Cruciata, Jetprime, Spider and Bike Lift.

The 2024 Aprilia RS 660 Trofeo will be available for reservation, from Monday, March 25, 2024, at https://storeusa.aprilia.com/rs-660-trofeo.aspx
