The new middleweight Aprilia RS660 has been launched in the Philippines at PHP 860,000 (equivalent to 13.19 lakh). It is also available in other Southeast Asian markets including Malaysia. The bike is also expected to hit the Indian shores in late-2021 or early 2022.

It has already been listed on the Aprilia India website along with its semi-faired sport-touring cousin - Tuono 660. The company is yet to announce a launch date on the model. As far as launch price goes, it is expected to be priced around 11 lakh to 12 lakh (ex-showroom, India). It will be a rival to the upcoming Yamaha YZF-R7 which was teased recently. Also, Kawasaki is rumoured to be gearing up to launch a middleweight twin-cylinder supersport in the form of Ninja 700R.
