The bike employs a 660 cc parallel-twin, liquid-cooled powertrain which has been rated to deliver 100 bhp of maximum power. It will use lighter components and will weigh just 169 kg (dry). Thanks to this, it will have a very aggressive power-to-weight ratio.

As per the latest spy images, there is another model with a slightly revised front-end, featuring a small round LED light positioned in the middle and flanked by the two LED headlamps. This specific bike also has the direction indicators integrated on to the rear-view mirrors unlike the other bike which uses traditionally placed indicators.

Probably, Aprilia is mulling two variants of the bike. One of them will be a standard variant while the other unit might be a premium variant.
