    Powering the new Aprilia RS 457 is a 457cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin cylinder engine that cranks out a maximum power of 48 PS. The power is transmitted to the ground via a 6-speed gearbox with a quick shifter. With a kerb weight of just 175 kg, the bike promises an impressive power-to-weight ratio that can give competitors a run for their money, says Aprilia.

The recent introduction of the 660 family, with RS and Tuono first and Tuareg later, has expanded its target, creating a full and competitive range. We are now ready to take another step towards the future with an astonishing bike developed entirely in Noale, capable of stimulating and thrilling young people and opening up huge potential in new markets, near and far. It is a step closer to the globalisation of a brand that has always had the perfect combination of technology, fun, and looking to the future in its DNA.”
