PATENTS: Aprilia’s RS660 production drawings now filed. It looks EXACTLY like the bike in our spy shot video. Hurrah!


We’ve been bringing you the first looks at the production version of the 2020 Aprilia RS660 road bike undergoing an extensive road and track testing regime since the start of the year – and now the firm’s official patents for the bike have been filed. And yes the bike in the designs does look virtually identical to the machine our spy snappers have caught in action.

Originally shown in Milan last year at the EICMA show, the bike is powered by a new 660cc parallel twin-cylinder motor that’s expected to make around 95bhp.

The good news is that the designs appear to ape, virtually identically, the concept bike with the drawings showing the production machine having the same chassis and swingarm. Expect the Ohlins suspension units of the concept bike to be replaced with Sachs options and the drawings do show slight tweaks to the headlight design and the rear mudguard.

Other than that, the bike is spot on for the motorcycle we showed you from Milan, that’s this bike below:
