The Italian bikemaker Aprilia is all set to make waves in the Indian market with the brand-new Tuareg 660. With its launch scheduled for tomorrow (April 16), the arrival of the new Aprilia adventure bike will likely have a considerable effect on India's premium motorcycle market. For the uninitiated, the model is already listed on the brand's official website and will be available in three colour options: Atreides Black, Canyon Sand, and Evocative Dakar Podium. The Tuareg 660 will take on the likes of the Suzuki V-Strom 600DE, Triumph Tiger 900, Honda XL750 Transalp, and BMW F 850 GS. The model will come to India as a CBU (Completely Built Unit). Read on to learn about the upcoming bike's specs, features, and more. 

Aprilia Tuareg 660: Mechanical Components

The Aprilia Tuareg 660 and the Tuono 660 (currently on sale in India), share the same 660cc platform. However, the ADV has an integrated subframe and a separate steel tube frame underneath. It is powered by the same 659cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine, which generates 80bhp of maximum power at 9,250rpm and 70Nm of peak torque at 6,500rpm and comes paired with a six-speed transmission and an optional quick-shifter.

Aprilia Tuareg 660: Styling


Within the Tuono 660 and RS 660 family, the Tuareg 660 sports the iconic Aprilia design in an adventure tourer configuration. With its angular and tall stance, the motorcycle features two triangular-shaped LED headlights with a transparent visor over them to complete the look. Moving forward, the bike's fuel tank, incorporated with the single-piece seat, has a streamlined appearance. To enhance its off-road capabilities, the Tuareg 660 features an upswept exhaust and a belly pan.

Aprilia Tuareg 660: Feature List and Hardware Details

Except for the colour options and liveries, all three Tuareg 660 versions will most likely share the same features and specifications. As a result, all Tuareg 660 models will be equipped with Bluetooth connectivity, traction, engine map, engine brake, and a five-inch TFT display as standard. Additional electronic features, like four riding modes (two of which may be customised), switchable rear ABS, and cruise control, will be offered with the Aprilia Performance Ride Control (APRC) system.

The hardware configuration of the Aprilia Tuareg 660 has been optimised for extreme off-roading. The middleweight ADV has 240mm of suspension travel, fully adjustable 43mm USD front forks, and a Kayaba rear mono-shock. Moreover, the adventure bike includes 21-18 wire-spoke wheels with tubeless tyres.

Aprilia Tuareg 660: Expected Price

Upon launch, the Tuareg 660 is expected to carry a price tag, ranging between Rs 18.85 lakh (base-spec model) and Rs 19.16 lakh (top-spec model). It will be offered for sale through the brand's Motoplex stores.
