The RS 660 features a 6-axis IME and it also gets a comprehensive APRC electronics package which includes traction control, wheelie control, engine brake control, and cruise control.

Aprilia RS 660 Specification, Features
The RS 660 comes with five rider modes, three for the street and two for the track, showing how Aprilia expects this bike to be used by a wide range of riders for daily rides and track days. The street-focused modes are Commute, for daily riding, Dynamic, for sport riders, and Individual, which allows the rider to customize the settings. For the track, there are Challenge and Time Attack. The first is the regular track setting and the latter is also customizable to allow an expert rider to fine-tune the settings.
The bike has a full-color TFT dash, which also allows the optional Aprilia MIA (sounds better in Italian than English) connection with your smartphone for managing voice commands, calls and even navigation displayed on the bike’s screen.

Instead of tacking on winglets, Aprilia created what it calls a “double fairing” that integrates the aerodynamic features. Aprilia says this design not only creates a downforce for stability at high speeds but also helps funnel hot air away from the rider, something that is already less of a problem with the parallel-twin engine than it is on Aprilia’s V-fours.
Speaking of the fairing, it incorporates both daytimes running lights and cornering lights, as well as integrated turn signals (which are self-canceling) to minimize the frontal area.
The RS 660 will come in two colors: one all black and other is the pairing of purple and red which as explained by Aprilla is a tribute to the RS 250 in its 1994 Reggiani Replica version, the last real sportbike of the two-stroke era, still beloved by motorcyclists and highly sought after by collectors.
