Aprilia aerodynamics and ergonomics
The Tuono 660 was produced for a wider audience, starting from a motorcycle designed for the racing world in terms of chassis architecture. On the Tuono 660, the upper fairings fixed to the frame stand out, reflecting the design language of all Aprilia models. This feature, which reduces the weight of the front and is not very common in classic sports naked motorcycles, provides superior protection against road wind. The double body element concept with less body surface and the aerodynamic spoiler of the Aprilia RS 660; It supports optimum design that offers lightness, performance and comfort. The pressure of the air directed between the two body element walls improves stability at high speeds and increases driving comfort by directing the hot air coming out of the engine.

Using this technology in the V4 brings with it exceptional performance, taking into account the high piston speed.
Engine; with its positioning that contributes to the freedom of design, it also offers an effective heat distribution and provides comfort to the user with its front-facing position. Asymmetrically designed long exhaust manifolds and double wall system contribute to the cooling system. Under conditions such as swaying during acceleration, braking and cornering, wet sump lubrication comes into play, which hangs down and wraps around the intake manifold for optimal lubrication. Thanks to the timing with 270° angled crank pins, a fierce and aggressive character is revealed by providing a unique sound and performance to the V-Twin engine. The injection system of the Tuono 660 features a 48mm diameter double throttle body with different lengths of intake ducts for an optimized distribution at high and medium revs. The electric throttle, transferred from the Aprilia V4, provides smooth and lively throttle responses, while supporting superior performance and ideal fuel consumption.
