Seems like it's getting closer to reality.

Will it live up to early power claims? Soon to be a LW class destroyer? Over expensive hype?

The clues that this bike is in nearly finished form are the lack of any kind of data-logging or tracking equipment fitted to the bikes. When companies test the bikes earlier in their development cycle you will often see boxes strapped to the pillion seat with wires and sensors coming out them. The lack of any such equipment points to these trials being for reliability or final testing.

The RS660 was supposed to be rolling out in front of the public at the Aprilia Festival at Mugello a couple of weeks back. COVID-19 managed to spoil that one for us, so we’ll have to wait a little longer for this bike’s first full reveal.

Very cool article about the 660. I quoted some nice numbers, but give the article a quick read.

372 pounds, dry
100 hp at a moderate 10,500 rpm
rev limiter steps in at 11,500

[Torque] quoted maximum of 49.4 pound-feet varies only a percent or so between 8,500 and 10,500. Ninety percent of that is available from 6,250 and 80 percent from 4,000. That is a torque plateau, not a curve.
