Aprilia has this week unveiled its new RS 660 Extrema at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan, presenting a new range-topping variant based on its popular middleweight sportsbike model, set to hit Australian showrooms ‘late next year’.

Pricing for the Extrema has yet to be confirmed, however, it will certainly sit above the standard full-power RS 660 which is currently available from $21,230 rideaway.

Distinguishing the Extrema is a dedicated white-and-red livery, SC Project exhaust system, single-seat tail section, a revised carbon-fibre front guard and new belly pan as well as removable rear footpegs. These components contribute to a weight reduction of around three kilograms compared to the standard variant.

The bike maintains its high-end six-axis IMU for cornering ABS and lean-angle sensitive traction control, among other features, although the Extrema gains the ability to set the shifter in an upside-down configuration for track riding.

Motivating the bike is a 659cc parallel-twin delivering 73.5kW (100hp) and 67Nm with a standard up/down quickshifter.

The bike’s settings can be toggled via five rider modes, three of which are fixed, and two can be individually tailored.

Premium components are found across the lightweight and sleek middleweight sportsbike, with 41mm Kayaba forks up front with 120mm of travel, and an asymmetric swingarm with an adjustable monoshock at the rear (130mm travel).

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

Also indicating the bikes premium positioning is full LED headlights, with automatic activation, and unique daytime running lights with integrated indicators.
