Aprilia RS 660 (2021 onwards)

The Aprilia RS 660 is a cross between a supersport bike and a regular sport bike such as the Honda CBR650R or Kawasaki Ninja 650. It is relatively cheap compared to most other supersport bikes, which makes it more accessible to beginner riders.

The bike offers plenty of power for riding at maximum speeds, but is very easy to handle. Its inline two cylinder engine generates around 100 horsepower or 74kW, which exceeds the A2 licence limit. However, there is a 70kW A2-friendly version available that can be factory restricted to 35kW.

Please note that the below specifications are for the regular non-A2 compliant Aprilia RS 660 model, rather than the 35kW / 70kW A2-compliant one.

A2 Licence Compliance

The Aprilia RS 660 is a 659cc A2-friendly bike. It has a power output of 74 kW (99 bhp), which exceeds the 35 kW (47 bhp) limit needed for an A2 licence. The bike has to be restricted by at least 52.7% to become A2 licence compliant.

You will need a restrictor to ride the Aprilia RS 660 on an A2 motorbike licence. See the restrictor kits section to check out what restrictors are available for the Aprilia RS 660.
