    Hold your enthusiasm, but seems that...

    a prototype of the new Aprilia 660 Tuareg will be shown at the next EICMA 2019 !!!

    :clap:clap:clap

    This scoop is confirmed: there will be a working prototype.
    It will use the two-cylinder engine of the sport prototype that we saw last year? Who knows?

    Anyway... I'm excited! :rayof

    I hope it will not be another crossover-bike good for urban hipster.... We need more bikes like the Teneré T700, IMO.

    Not so bad at all. I like it.
    Even if I would prefer something more "Dakar-oriented". I mean "something" with that high (and almost vertical) windscreen, mostly transparent.

    I love it. Though if it's to be the 660, it won't be the v-twin engine in the rendering. It would be the parallel-twin as seen in the RS660 prototype.

    Still... daddy like.

    Me too. TWINNERS!!

    I would hope it would be a v twin, possibly using a Dorso or Shiver motor more tuned for dual sport. That image shown I would buy one in a minute. No interest in a parallel twin.

    Where'd you get the information that it is confirmed? I've been looking and can't find anything.

    :-(
    Aprilia RS 660 should come in the summer of 2020, Tuono 660 autumn 2020 to the dealers. According to rumor, by the way, a third version with the new 660er engine is in the starting blocks, which should call itself TUAREG and rather can be classified in the category adventure bike. Unfortunately, there is currently no explicit information about the new bike.

    That video is promising. Would be cool if it was a bare bones enduro style lightweight twin, keep it less than 425lbs fueled and give it tons of travel.
