Standard equipment includes single-seat tail-fairing cover (the pillion seat comes with the bike, which is still approved for two-up riding), oversized top fairing, and quickshifter that can be configured as a race-style upside-down gearbox.
The RS 660 celebrates its first significant competitive milestone with a special edition featuring a Stars and Stripes livery, enlarged top fairing, single-seat tail fairing and reverse quick shift gears. This is a special memento to celebrate the victories in the 2021 Twins Cup, the prestigious American championship for midweight twin-cylinder motorcycles and considered the leading motorbike series in the States.
Limited to just 1500 units, with the number printed on a shield on the fuel tank. Racing elements come as standard features, ensuring every rider can experience the thrills of the Twins Cup. The livery features the American flag for a completely new look for a bike from the Aprilia family.
