Aprilia Malaysia unveiled the RS 660 Extrema alongside the launch of the SR-GT 200 Replica, showcasing the sportiest variant within the current RS 660 model range. The name pays homage to the Aprilia 125 Extrema, a high-performance eighth-litre bike produced between 1992 and 1994.
Boasting a remarkable dry weight of 166 kg, the RS 660 Extrema sets a new standard for the power-to-weight ratio, achieving 100 HP—a record in its class. This accomplishment is attributed to a range of refined standard equipment. Notably, a new and lighter street-legal exhaust system by SC Project, featuring a carbon silencer positioned on the right side (now situated above the engine), plays a pivotal role. The black anodized aluminum silencer bracket allows the removal of passenger footpegs, contributing to further weight reduction. Additionally, the front mudguard and the redesigned belly pan, both crafted from high-quality carbon, add to the overall weight-saving measures.
The RS 660 Extrema’s sporty character is accentuated by the single-seat tail fairing, replacing the passenger seat and enhancing the sleek rear design. However, the passenger seat is included with the bike, maintaining its two-up riding approval. In addition to the standard electronics found in the RS 660—such as traction control, cornering ABS, engine brake, engine map, and adjustable wheelie control—the RS 660 Extrema features software enabling the configuration of a quick shift in an upside-down arrangement. This allows for autonomous gearbox setup without replacing any bike components, making it versatile for both street and race versions, ideal for track days.
The distinctive white and red livery, inspired by sports aesthetics, ensures immediate recognition of the RS 660 Extrema. The introductory selling price for this high-performance model is set at RM 79,900.
