Aprilia RS 660 Extrema Races To Australia in Strictly Limited Numbers

Aprilia take the RS 660 to the extreme with the introduction of the RS 660 Extrema. Set to be available in Australia from October 2023 in strictly limited numbers and priced from $24,490 ride away.

Named in honour of the Aprilia 125 Extrema, one of the highest-performance and fastest 125s ever, manufactured from 1992 to 1994. Thanks to its refined and new standard equipment, RS 660 Extrema tips the scales at just 166kg dry (183kg wet), which raises the performance bar with a power-to-weight ratio of 100hp – a record in its class.

This milestone is achieved by the special standard equipment, which includes 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 new design, both made of high-quality carbon.

The RS 660 Extrema’s high-performance intent is also emphasised by the single-seat tail fairing, which replaces the pillion seat to enhance the bike’s sleek design. The pillion seat comes with the bike, nonetheless, for two-up riding.

In addition to the standard electronics on the RS 660 (which includes traction control, cornering ABS, engine brake, engine map, and wheelie control – all adjustable), RS 660 Extrema features software that allows you to set up quickshift 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.
