NEW YORK, N.Y. – April 7, 2023 – Aprilia USA has announced a limited-edition run of RS 660 Trofeo motorcycles designed and built by the team at Aprilia Racing. Powered by 54 world championships worth of engineering expertise, the RS 660 Trofeo is fully equipped with everything a track-focused rider or racer would need.

The RS 660 Trofeo has been built for race use only and includes upgraded electronics with wheelie control, traction control and engine braking adjustment, all accessible from the TFT display located behind the proprietary fiberglass front fairing. In Trofeo trim, the RS 660’s inline twin-cylinder engine combined with a titanium SC-Project exhaust system produces 105 horsepower. It is mounted in an upgraded chassis that implements a lower rider position with a racing triple clamp that allows for clip-on adjustment, as well as adjustable rearsets. Without fluids, the RS 660 Trofeo weighs just 337.3 lbs.

Aprilia Racing left no stone unturned with upgrades extending into the suspension, including front forks with Misano by Andreani cartridges and a rear Öhlins AP948 remote reservoir shock. Both allow for compression, rebound damping and preload adjustment for granular handling customization. Additional high-performance upgrades like the Brembo braking system and Pirelli Supercorsa V3 SC1 tires take the Trofeo past the realms of traditional street legal bikes with precision handling and stopping power.
