Since the EICMA 2019, a trio of Aprilia mid-displacement bikes has been all the buzz in the rumor mill. For now, they have their mid-displacement duo revealed, the RS660 and the Tuono 660. With these two bikes in the spotlight, there was a third bike that wasn’t concretely revealed. With that, rumors of an Aprilia Tuareg resurrection came to light.
What is the Tuareg bike, though? These bikes were used in the Dakar rally, a race that would start from a European city and end in the capital of Senegal. This race is an ultimate test of rider skill and motorcycle reliability, as riders need to cover 500 miles on a daily basis.
Back to the point at hand, the Tuareg test bike was seen testing way back in September 2020. Judging by the photos from that test, the bike looks pretty much ready to hit the demanding trails as it features adventure style fairing and windscreen.
To further complement its minimalistic look is the projector-style headlight. We can also see the yellow crash cage and skidplate that you can find on powerful adventure bikes such as Honda Africa Twin.
For now, there is no information on the engine specs other than the testing photos. We assume that Aprilia will tune up the engine with gargantuan motorcycle adventures in mind.
Well, we are certainly eagerly expecting to see some more information from Aprilia in the following months.
