Two ex­cit­ing new April­ias show­cased

Auto Today - - Feature -

Aprilia showed off two 150cc bikes and let us tell you that they were very spe­cial. The two bikes, Tuono 150 and the RS 150 share the same liq­uid cooled mo­tor which churns out 18bhp and 14Nm of torque and sends power to the wheels via a 6-speed gear­box. The bikes also use 40mm

USD forks up front and a monoshock at the back. Both bikes also fea­ture alu­mi­u­nium frames which ac­cord­ing to the com­pany makes it ul­tra ex­pen­sive. While the RS is a fully faired sport bike of­fer­ing, the Tuono sports a half fair­ing and ex­posed en­gine. The in­stru­ment panel is also a mix of dig­i­tal and ana­logue dis­plays and at the same time is in­for­ma­tive as well.

The com­pany has re­ceived a very pos­i­tive feed­back for both these bikes and is strongly con­sid­er­ing them for pro­duc­tion. We just hope that Aprilia is able to put them into pro­duc­tion in 18 months as promised.
