Aprilia is expected to release its new Tuono 660 Factory to Australian showrooms in the third quarter of this year, priced from $22,690 rideaway.

The flagship Factory variant will sit atop Aprilia’s Tuono 660 middleweight naked bike range above the standard LAMS approved version, which continues from $21,490. The current full-power Tuono 660 will be effectively replaced by the Factory grade when it launches later in the year.

The bike also joins the fully faired RS 660, priced from $22,590 in LAMS configuration or $22,590 with the full-power tune, as well as the Tuareg 660 adventure bike ($22,530) which draws power from a similar 659cc parallel-twin engine.

Distinguishing the Tuono 660 Factory compared to the standard variant is sportier suspension and a stronger power-to-weight ratio, among other upgrades.

The Factory debuts a unique black and red colour scheme, as well as fully adjustable Kayaba suspension up front (110mm travel) and a Sachs rear shock with a remote reservoir at the rear (130mm travel).

Thanks to the inclusion of a lithium battery, the Factory is two kilograms lighter than the standard Tuono 660, weighing in at 181kg (wet).

Aprilia has also deleted the pillion seat in favour of a single-seat rear fender, and a tooth has been removed from its countershaft sprocket to increase acceleration.

The bike retains its 659cc parallel-twin delivering 70kW (100hp) and 67Nm, matched with an up/down quickshifter and advanced rider modes with a six-axis inertial measurement unit (IMU) for cornering ABS and lean-angle sensitive traction control.

Five rider modes toggle wheelie control, engine braking, engine mapping, traction control and ABS settings. Cruise control is fitted as standard.

Carry over Brembo brakes measure 320mm at the front, while a two-piston calliper squeezes a 220mm disc at the rear.

Also included as standard are full LED headlights, with automatic activation, and unique daytime running lights with integrated indicators.
