2021 Aprilia Tuono 660 first ride review: Less power, same fun

The high-revving twin gives up a lot of the all-around torque that the V4 Tuono has in spades (49 pound-feet versus 89 lb-ft), but it maintains that bike’s thrilling top-end rush. This is not a bike that wants to chug around in the lower registers of its rev range, but offers smooth throttle response, even in its Dynamic throttle mode.
