Nice to have so many options in this mid capacity Adventure market now.
Car muffler on the rear?
Imagine the size of the Akra sticker you could put on that!
How’s that Yamaho going BD? You know, that new Terrine.
you obviously aren't aware of the true pronunciation
or see the tag
I still struggle with Bol d’Or mate. But at least I can spell it. :)
Yeah, I couldn’t get past this bit-
“Nel 2021 arriverà la naked”
Turning up starkers is one of my specialties.
Will it be reliable?
Will it leak oil?
Will parts be available?
Will it have italian wiring?
Looks like it will be quiet while your reading your paper and having a coffee on a main st though .
Man I was worried you were talking 790 till you got to the Italian bit
I like the name though
Clear and decisive off-road nature, an engine in common with the sporty RS 660 and, until now, a lot of mystery: finally a spy photo of the Aprilia Tuareg 660
It had remained hidden behind the foliage of the display case, during the 2019 edition of Eicma, but now, finally, it has come out into the open: the new Aprilia Tuareg 660 was caught on the street, in the middle of the testing before the official presentation.
Engine and chassis
We know little, very little about this Made in Italy enduro, so we can only carefully examine the photo found on the web. The only certainty is the 660 cc twin-cylinder engine that equips the new RS 660. The power will probably be limited compared to that of the sport, while the torque will be directed towards the low revs, to improve delivery in off road. Tuareg 660 will inherit the electronic package that equips the RS 660.
EICMA 2019: all the news from Aprilia
The Piaggio Group presents itself at Eicma 2019 with important innovations for its brands. In particular, it is especially in the Aprilia house that we find very important models.
The rest is a real enduro bike, as it was on the old and glorious Tuareg of the 80s: 21 "front wheel, 18" rear wheel, long travel fork and rear suspension and shapes that recall the Dakar. The new Aprilia Tuareg 660 undoubtedly has the Yamaha Ténéré 700 in its viewfinder: the nature of the bike, the history, the shapes, the light on the ground, all bring back to the off-road nature that also characterizes Iwata's enduro.
When it will arrive?
Surely the Coronavirus pandemic has upset the plans of the Noale company: if the arrival of the RS 660 was scheduled for spring (in reality it will go to pre-order from October 2020), also Tuareg 660 and Tuono 660, will suffer delays in the testing and, consequently, in the official presentation.
The naked will arrive in 2021, but Aprilia could also consider presenting both at the same time. We await updates. You continue to follow us.
I had a wheelchair once. It had wheels and a frame. In a similar long bow draw, that also recalled the Dakar.
The light on the ground...... the what?
Who writes this crap and expects punters to swallow it?
Still, I eagerly await the naked arriving in 2021.
should I change the thread title yet or wait a bit longer
Change it to:
"Aprilia Tuareg 660 owners claiming warranty sign in here".
I mean, they should probably register before they collect their new bike to speed things up a bit.
Translations "para Italiano" can be very entertaining at times... especially if the (original) Italian author is attempting to be eloquent and emotive. I had an association with the Moto Verte/Moto Verde publication many years ago - who published parallel moto magazine titles for the Italian, French, Spanish and Portuguese markets.
I recall one time a review (penned by the Italian desk editor) on the - then - newly released Ducati Multistrada, that intially translated to; "It brazenly strokes the ego; to the point of arousal..."
When I sent a memo to the English editor; "Hey Charles... looks like Ducati's marketing tactic has just been let out of the bag... ". I got this simple message back; "Coffee on keyboard. Thanks "
In recent times however, one might accuse the orange crowd as being guilty of picking up the metaphorical (erection) ball and running with it...
In any case, a better translation (not google) of the text might have been; "... The new Aprilia Tuareg 660 undoubtedly has the Yamaha Ténéré 700 in its viewfinder: the nature of the bike, its sense of history, the styling and general appearance (light/shadow on the ground), all bring back to the off-road nature that also characterizes Iwata's enduro."
Here in Scandinavia, we have a similar trinity of moto magazine titles (BIKE) that cater to the Swedish, Danish, Norwegian and Finnish languages... The Swede, Dane and Norsk translations are a piece of cake (very similar base language)... but from Finnish...??! That is a bit like translating hieroglyphics via babblefish into Korean.
Is this the bit of the thread where I get all shitty because some Orange idiot has trash talked my brand? I’m new at this shit, mainly because there’s what, 3 of us in Aus? That, and I just checked me shed and there’s a bloody orange bike in there. Crap.
I’d defend my Ape as never having electrical gremlins but that’s not true. I’d rant and rave about the muffler being a thing of beauty and not part # 12871 in the Midas catalogue, but actually it’s a horrid lump. I’d tell Richo he’s a Moran and should stick to his own brand but actually I reckon he’s a good bloke. That just leaves Carpenter. What would he know.
I reckon all those Ducati blokes will be along in a tick to defend a brother, I mean all the Jap bike idiots stick together don’t they?
Actually, translated into Italian; it's
"Dolce fanculo a tutti..."
Actually, I lust after a certain Italian. I may have one in the shed one day. It'll probably spend most of the time in the shed; mine or the dealers, but true love is like that.
But it'll be a love hate thing either way.
They only stuck the pipe back there because on the first round it burnt the fuck out of the test riders inside leg and they said fuck that move it down the back
