Motorcycling manufacturer Aprilia has offered an upgrade to its 2022 Aprilia Tuono 660. While a six-axis IMU and the capabilities it supports are the biggest news about the 2022 Aprilia Tuono 660 Factory, there are other important new features on this faired upright sportbike, so let’s get to it.
The 2022 Aprilia Tuono 660 Factory is imbued with a complete electronic suite of rider aids. The IMU is matched to a fully ride-by-wire system.
The 660 Factory has the adjustable help you want. Pick your levels of intervention for traction control, wheelie control, engine braking, power production, throttle response, and cruise control.
All five riding modes are customizable. Aprilia designers have put together three riding modes for the street and two for the track, and then they let you loose to set them up as you please.
Cornering-aware ABS is part of the new Factory. However, it is not adjustable.
A quickshifter is standard on the 2022 Aprilia Tuono 660 Factory. You can shift up and down to your heart’s content without touching the slipper clutch.
For those who ride after dark, there’s cornering lighting. Lean over, and the IMU instructs the computer to tell cornering lights to help you see where you’re going.
The 2022 Aprilia Tuono 660 suspension is upgraded to Factory spec. The KYB fork and Sachs shock are fully adjustable units, and they’re set up by Aprilia engineers for sport riding.
There’s on less tooth on the Factory’s countershaft sprocket. This will increase acceleration in exchange for a reduction in top speed. The motor is unchanged from the standard Tuono 660.
A lithium battery drops the curb weight of the Factory to under 400 pounds.
A single-seat tail fairing tells the world that you ride for sport, not to transport a passenger. However, there is a seat underneath, along with passenger pegs, so you can ride two-up at a moment’s notice.
We don’t have a price for the 2022 Aprilia Tuono 660 Factory. Unfortunately, we also can’t tell you when it will hit showroom floors in the United States.
