Judging by them, and previously obtained photospies photos of the test prototype from the track, the bike has not changed much. But got a two-cylinder engine.

Now we know exactly what the serial bike with the internal RS660 index will look like. Although after the spy shots it might seem that we are waiting for major changes in the design, in fact, it turned out to be wrong. It is expected that the new product of the Italian manufacturer will be brought to the Milan exhibition EICMA-2019. There we will see if Aprilia is preparing another surprise.

For now, you can consider the filling, which is a half of the 1078-cubic V4 RSV4 Factory superbike – a two-cylinder in-line unit with a volume of 660 cm³. This solution is not new and is already being applied in a number of other companies.

On a motorcycle, there are no Brembo Stylema brake calipers and Öhlins suspension components, as in the previously presented concept. In their place were the suspension Sachs and triple brace. Under the engine is the exhaust system with a catalyst.

The saddle is designed for one rider, which is also one of the main differences from the conceptual version. The tail is sporty pointed to the top, but the clips are raised on the road.
