The Aprilia Tuono 150 was showcased as a concept at the 2018 Auto Expo. Apart from the naked bike, the Italian brand has also showcased the Tuono 150. While Aprilia did mention that it will be launching the Tuono 150 in India in 2021.

Aprilia Tuono 150 Engine and Performance

The Aprilia Tuono 150 is powered by a liquid-cooled, single-cylinder 150cc, fuel-injected engine with a maximum power output of 17bhp and a peak torque output of 14Nm. A 6-speed sequential gearbox drives the rear wheel and a quick-shifter will be available as an option. Acceleration and top speed figures are expected to be better than all motorcycles in the segment.

Aprilia Tuono 150 Suspension

Suspension duties on the Aprilia Tuono 150 are carried out by premium upside down forks up front, and adjustable monoshocks at the rear. While this promises great ride quality and handling, we are not sure if the same suspension would make it to the production variant given the additional cost for such a setup.

Aprilia Tuono 150 Brakes

Braking on the Aprilia Tuono 150 too is premium, with a 300mm disc up front and a 218mm disc at the rear. ABS being provided as standard further helps in increasing braking effectiveness, and thereby, safety.

2. Aprilia RS 150

Aprilia RS 150 is expected to launch in India in November 2021 in the expected price range of ₹ 1, 40,000 to ₹ 1, 50,000.

The Aprilia RS150 is a supersport in much the vein of the Yamaha YZF-R15. It is derived from the RS125, a 125cc supersport that is popular in the European market. However, the 150 has, as the name suggests, a 150cc engine. It will have four valves, fuel injection and liquid cooling and generate around 18bhp.

The concept on display at the Auto Expo also had a quickshifter for the six-speed gearbox, but we do not expect this to make it to production to save costs. Also on the chopping block are the upside down front forks, radially mounted, fixed brake callipers, and ABS.? The RS150 should debut sometime in 2019 and will compete with the Yamaha YZF-R15 V3 and the KTM RC200.

Aprilia Tuono 660 is expected to launch in India in June 2021 in the expected price range of ₹ 8, 50,000 to ₹ 9, 50,000. 

The Tuono 660 is rich when it comes to the features. It gets Aprilia signature tri-LED headlight with DRLs. Furthermore, it has rider aids like multi-level traction control, anti-wheelie, cruise control, selectable engine maps, cornering ABS and five different riding modes, of which three are for the road and two for the track. All of this can be operated on a full TFT display.

The Tuono 660 houses a 659cc, parallel-twin motor with a 270-degree crank. It pumps out 96.3PS of power and 66Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox with a bi-directional quickshifter as standard.

The Tuono 660’s aluminum frame uses the engine as a stressed member. It is suspended on a 41mm Kayaba USD fork and monoshock, both with preload and rebound adjustability. Braking on the Tuono 660 is handled by dual 320mm discs at the front with Brembo radially-mounted 4-piston callipers and a 220mm disc at the rear.

  • Showroom Price Rs. 10.00 Lakh
  • Exp. Launch: June 2021

4. Aprilia RS250

engine performance

By the time Aprilia got hold of the V-twin, RGV motor it’d had six years of development, one major upgrade, and a ten percent power increase on the original 1988 version. More importantly, Suzuki changed the design of the power valves in 1991 to make them much more reliable and continued to work on power delivery and reliability in the meantime. The gearbox was always a bit stiff (for a Suzuki) but dependable and consistent in action and you soon got used to it.

Power and torque

Aprilia used the Suzuki engine pretty much as it was in the RGV. They skimmed the head for raised compression, remapped the digital ignition (still a new thing in 1995) for improved midrange, added an extra solenoid to the two that controlled air/fuel mix in the carbs and used their own exhaust pipes (which Aprilia claimed were responsible for around 90 per cent of the bike’s power improvements).

The result was a claimed 70bhp, which turned out to be more like 53bhp (exactly the same as an RGV250) at the back wheel. 27 lb-ft of torque was the same as the RGV too. Look beyond the peak power figures though and you see the extent of the work Aprilia had done. The RS250 has around ten per cent more power and torque than the standard RGV between 8000-11,000rpm.

Aprilia RS250 Brakes

The four-piston Brembo front calipers offer enormous stopping power and the suspension allows you to use pretty much all of it. Getting back on a two-stroke after a few months away is an interesting reminder of how much engine breaking a modern four-stroke motor has. Thankfully the Aprilia brakes are strong enough to cope.
