Earlier this year, Aprilia was caught testing a smaller version of the RS 660, which was reported to be a 440cc sports bike.

  • The test mule was caught testing alongside the upcoming Moto Guzzi Stelvio.
  • In the latest development, new details emerge about the upcoming Aprilia RS 440.

Engine and Performance

The new Aprilia RS 440 is set to feature a 440cc parallel-twin engine, boasting approximately 45 bhp of power and 40 Nm of torque. Designed for those looking to upgrade from smaller bikes, the RS 440 is equipped with a 6-speed gearbox and is likely to offer liquid cooling.

Design Elements 

Spy shots reveal significant refinements in the motorcycle’s body design, displaying clear lineage to the Aprilia family. The LED Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) are reminiscent of those on the new RS 660. These DRLs not only serve as accent lights but could potentially double as turn indicators, although this is yet to be confirmed.

The bike features a split headlight design, an integrated windshield for enhanced aerodynamics, and a sculpted fuel tank. The fairing, which encapsulates most of the engine, is one of the standout design features, adding a sleek yet aggressive look to the motorcycle.

Chassis and Braking

Contrary to the RS 660’s twin disc setup, the RS 440 will incorporate a single disc setup at both ends, likely featuring radial calipers at the front. The bike also sports a custom cast rear swingarm, which is less sophisticated than that of its bigger sibling, the RS 660.

Additional Features

The RS 440 is expected to come with a fully digital instrument screen and dual-channel ABS. Bi-directional quick shifting is also highly likely to be a feature. The absence of a tire hugger and a neatly integrated underbelly exhaust point toward the bike’s focus on mass centralization.

It’s finally happening, Triumph Motorcycles was seen testing the all-new Daytona 660 on open roads in Europe, signalling the arrival of a new entry-level sportbike. 

  • The limited-edition Triumph Daytona 765 Moto2 introduced four years ago was the last sighting of the iconic machine. 
  • The latest spyshot confirms the arrival of an all-new Daytona 660 that shares the same engine with the Trident and Tiger Sport 660.

At the heart of the matter is the shared powerplant that underpins the Daytona 660, a 660cc triple engine whose potency has already been demonstrated in the Trident 660 and Tiger Sport 660. With a claimed output of 81 horsepower @ 10,250 rpm, complemented by a robust torque of 63Nm @ 6,250 rpm, this engine configuration is set to awaken the road with its presence. This raw power is tamed by a well-calibrated six-speed gearbox, ensuring seamless transitions in the pursuit of dynamic performance.

A closer examination of the spy photos published by RideApart reveals a remarkable continuity in components across the Trident 660, Tiger Sport 660, and the upcoming Daytona 660. The familiar sight of the 17-inch cast aluminum wheels, the distinctive exhaust (with a test-specific extension perhaps hinting at ongoing adjustments), and the signature mirrors collectively form a nexus of continuity. The rear section and tail, reminiscent of its stablemates, further underscore the design harmony within the Triumph 660 family.

Notably, the front fork appears to be conserved from the previous models, reflecting the commitment to engineering excellence that Triumph upholds. Drawing cues from the Tiger Sport 660, the Daytona 660’s dashboard layout bears a resemblance to the former’s configuration, a decision that resonates with the sporty demeanor the Daytona line embodies. The ergonomics have been calibrated for an upright posture, balancing agility with rider comfort.

In terms of aesthetics, the bodywork echoes a logical progression from the last iteration of the Daytona, retaining the captivating headlight and cowl design elements that were last witnessed in 2019. While official details remain elusive due to the covert nature of these snapshots, it’s prudent to deduce that the Daytona 660 will build upon the legacy of its predecessors.

In terms of pricing, we expect the Daytona 660 to priced above the Trident and Tiger Sport 660.
