Ravi Motors is relaunching the beloved Italian motorcycle brand Aprilia in Pakistan with the RS 660. The automaker is reportedly set to open up bookings for the motorbike from late February or the beginning of March 2021 with deliveries to the customers expected to be a month after each booking.
Reports also suggest that “a significant number of bikes” are being brought in for the local market and will be sold as Complete Built-up Units (CBUs). The RS 660 was introduced to the global market earlier this year and has reportedly undergone a massive makeover as compared to the previous model.
The new bike has Aprilia’s latest 659-cc naturally aspirated parallel-twin cylinder engine that makes 100 horsepower and 67 newton-meters of torque, and is mated to the Aprilia Quick Shift (AQS) 6-speed transmission. Aprilia’s engineers claim that the engine provides most of the torque down-low in the rev-range for the rider to enjoy a relaxed ride.
The RS 660 is also loaded with other engineering aids that provide optimal control even at high speeds. Since it will be imported as a CBU, with its characteristic style, grunt, and performance, it will be worth a hefty Rs. 2 million which is similar to its price in the international market.
Aprilia is a premium sports-bike brand that is globally renowned for making and selling exceptionally fast and expensive motorbikes that are targeted at a niche of enthusiasts who love them and have the money to pay for them.
