Griff's first impressions.
Griff's first thoughts on the RS 660.
This bike has the all new parallel twin engine with a 270 degree crank that gives it a similar sound to the V4. A new TFT dash, 320mm discs and Brembo radial calipers and the front forks really compliment the bike and the slightly lower footrests give Griff a 'familiar' feel which make this a much more town friendly and everyday useable Aprilia.
Out on the open road the gear changes are slick, the handling is good despite it being a bit too stiff at the front and too soft at the rear, but it is straight out of the crate so they can be adjusted. Griff gives his opinions on where this bike is potentially best placed within the UK's market, what do you think?
Please sit back and relax and enjoy the ride and review.
