APRILIA DOMINATES THE MOTOAMERICA TWINS CUP

THE MIDDLE CLASS OF THE AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIP DOMINATED BY KALEB DE KEYREL AND HIS RS 660

10 WINS, 16 PODIUMS AND 6 POLES IN 13 RACES, 68 POINTS AHEAD OF THE SECOND PLACED RIDER: A SEASON TO REMEMBER

The title was already in the bag after the penultimate round of the championship, given the advantage accumulated by champion Kaleb De Keyrel during the 2021 season of the MotoAmerica championship, Twins Cup category. Kaleb and the new Italian twin-cylinder Aprilia RS 660 dominated the season with 234 points, 68 more than his closest rival.

But the overall numbers after the last race in Alabama are even more impressive. Aprilia’s new lightweight sportsbike took victory in 10 of the 13 heats, spread over 9 stages. Added to this are 16 other podiums (9 second, 7 third places) and 6 pole positions. Podiums occupied entirely by Aprilia RS 660s were not uncommon, as in the debut race in Atlanta, in Monterey or in both races held in New Jersey.

The Aprilia RS 660 proved to be a versatile bike, capable of winning on extremely different circuits and with riders with different riding characteristics. Even without particularly thorough preparation, since the MotoAmerica Twins regulations, recognising the Italian bike’s great technical qualities already in the street version, apply a “balance of performance” system, limiting the interventions possible in all areas: chassis, electronics and engine.

At the end of the season, it’s already time to look ahead to the next championship, with a dual objective. While the aim is obviously to confirm the 2021 title, at the same time the number of riders and teams equipped with the Aprilia RS 660 will increase. But first, the winner Kaleb De Keyrel will face the specialists of the Italian Trofeo RS 660 in the last round at Vallelunga.
