The recently released official video of the Aprilia RS 660 reveals a handful of details of the upcoming motorcycle. However, most of the features of the new middleweight Aprilia were already known thanks to the several spy shots and the leaked brochure. The only new information that has been revealed in the footage is that the Aprilia RS 660 international pre-bookings will commence from next month.
The brand-new Aprilia RS 660 would have made its public debut by now, however, that could not happen thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic. Now, as some form of normalcy is getting restored across the world, Aprilia launched the promotional video of the RS 660 and announced that the international pre-bookings of the motorcycle will begin from October.
While the Aprilia RS 660 international pre-bookings details have been released, the Italian company is yet to reveal the launch date of the new middleweight bike. Speaking of the launch, the arrival of the Aprilia RS 660 in India any time soon is highly unlikely considering that it will attract a very high price tag.
