All new 2022 Aprilia RS 660 Trofeo First Look. This one’s not for the street. Available from Aprilia Racing as part of the company’s Factory Works program, it’s up to you to retrieve this track-ready version of the Aprilia RS 660 supersport motorcycle from the Aprilia Racing cargo dock in Noale, Italy. Let’s go over what makes it an Aprilia RS 660 Trofeo. Spoiler: It includes lots of trick parts from Italy.
- The motor has minor modifications. The radiator thermostat is gone, which allowed Aprilia Racing to simply the cooling system’s hose array. There are also aluminum protectors for the motor.
- The electronics system gets a workover for track performance. Aprilia Racing has programmed the ECU for racing, not street riding. The Sprint Filter air filter and SC-Project exhaust necessitate completely different engine mappings due to increased air supply during intake and the expanded ability to exhaust the spent charge.
- Traction control, wheelie control, and electronic compression-braking adjustments are all present. However, they are configured for racing rather than street use. All three functions are independently tunable.
- The quickshifter is up-only. You’re on your own for downshifting.
- ABS is disabled. Additionally, the braking system is simplified by keeping the front and rear braking systems completely independent.
- A color TFT display is employed, with a switch panel on the left clip-on bar. Jetprime makes the switch panel and kill button.
- There is no key, and the immobilizer function is disabled.
- The Aprilia RS 660 Trofeo’s KYB fork is externally the same as the standard RS 660 KYB. Inside, it gets an Andreani Misano Cartridge fork kit, which features a DLC-coated cartridge tube. The damping and spring-preload are dialed in for track use.
