Aprilia RS 660 Extrema Debuts

EICMA has seen the latest 660 from Aprilia debuted the Extrema edition based on the popular RS 660 model. In even better news for Australian enthusiasts of the brand the bike is headed to OZ and due in dealerships late 2023.

Aprilia presents Extrema, the sportiest version of the current RS 660 model range. The name is reminiscent of that of the Aprilia 125 Extrema, one of the highest-performance and fastest 125 ever, manufactured from 1992 to 1994.

The Extrema is a special version of Europe’s best selling Sport’s bike and is highlighted by an exclusive equipment package including SC Project exhaust system, carbon components, single seater tail fairing and new software for the upside-down gearbox.

Thanks to its refined and new standard equipment, RS 660 Extrema tips the scale with an amazing kerb weight of 166kg and sets a new bar in terms of weight to power ratio (which comes in at 100hp, a record in its class) which, as we all know, is fundamental for fun on the road and effective riding on the track.

This milestone is achieved by the special standard equipment which includes, first and foremost, a new and lighter street-legal exhaust system by SC Project with carbon silencer positioned on the right side (and no longer beneath the engine).

It also comes with the black anodised aluminium silencer bracket which allows you to remove the passenger footpegs, leading to even lighter weight. Also contributing to the overall reduction in weight are the front mudguard and the new bellypan with a brand-new design, both made of high-quality carbon.

The sporty nature of RS 660 Extrema is also emphasised by the single-seat tail fairing, which replaces the passenger seat to enhance the sleek design of the rear area. The passenger seat comes with the bike, which maintains its two-up riding approval.

In addition to the standard electronics on the RS 660 (which include traction control, cornering ABS, engine brake, engine map, and wheelie control – all adjustable) RS 660 Extrema also has software that allows you to set up quick shift in upside-down configuration.

This means that the gearbox can be configured completely autonomously, without replacing any bike component, in street or race version – ideal for track days. The new dedicated white and red livery is clearly sport-inspired and contributes to making it recognisable at a glance.

Pricing will be released closer to arrival date for further information please contact your local Aprilia dealer.
