According to Aprilia:

--

A new concept in sport bikes for a more exhilarating ride every day of the week. Aprilia RS 660 combines design and premium engine technical mastery with the outstanding performance of the new parallel twin-cylinder 660 cc of up to 100 HP. With a stylish frame and weighing in at a mere 169 kg and with a refined frame, this is a bike true to the Aprilia tradition.

Its style is innovative, sophisticated and uncompromisingly sporty, with a modern, dynamic shape and contained surfaces that ensure the chassis is seen in all its glory. The embodiment of Aprilia passion and expertise, the RS 660 is a bike destined to make its mark.

They say 100bhp is all you need. Are any of you going to put a deposit down?

As soon as I can stick a topbox on it, it'll replace my CBR and become my new commuter :)

Chop a 1200cc V4 engine in half, bore it out a bit and stick it in a light weight chassis. You can even see daylight through the frame, fer chrissakes. I like it. A lot. But I can't see me buying one. Should rule the roost in twins racing...

That looks like it would be a right hoot to ride, light, flickable and thrashable!
Hope they win some ground with this one, inline 4s are just so bloody samey in this size
