Aprilia Introduces The SR GT Replica And Aprilia RS660 Extrema Models
The Aprilia SR GT and RS660 were launched with their racing team pilots present
Didi Group, the sole distributor for Aprilia bikes in Malaysia, launched the new Aprilia SR GT Replica and Aprilia RS 660 Extrema during an exclusive Malaysian GrandPrix 2023 Meet and Greet featuring the Aprilia Racing Team pilots, Aleix Espagaro and Maverick Vinales.
Aprilia SR GT, the “urban adventure” scooter from Aprilia designed to rediscover the fun in daily riding, makes its début in the special and super-sporty Replica version with aesthetics taken directly from the Aprilia RS-GP, the bike ridden by Aleix Espargaró and Maverick Viñales, protagonists in the 2023 MotoGP World Championship.
Moreover, the sporty lines of the Aprilia SR GT take on an even grittier look to transform city commutes and longer rides, easily within the SR GT’s capabilities, into a thrilling ride so you can enjoy every ride, every time truly reflecting the sporty roots of the motorcycle.
The Aprilia SR GT Replica’s matte black colour scheme is enhanced by the same red and purple graphics that characterise the elegant fairings of the Aprilia Racing factory team’s Aprilia RS-GP, one of the most painstakingly designed and technologically cutting-edge prototypes on the MotoGP starting grid, and by the characteristic Aprilia logo that runs diagonally along the side and central tunnel.
On top of that, Aprilia also presents the Extrema, the sportiest version of the current RS 660 model range. The name is reminiscent of that of the Aprilia 125 Extrema, one of the highest performances and fastest eighth-litre ever, manufactured from 1992 to 1994.
Thanks to its refined and new standard equipment, the Aprilia RS 660 Extrema weighs in at 166kg and sets a new bar in terms of weight to power ratio (which comes in at 100HP, a record in its class) which is fundamental for fun on the road and effective riding on the track.
This milestone is achieved by the special standard equipment which includes, first and foremost, a new and lighter street-legal exhaust system by SC Project with carbon silencer positioned on the right side (and no longer beneath the engine).
What’s more, it also comes with the black anodised aluminium silencer bracket which allows you to remove the passenger footpegs, leading to even lighter weight. Also contributing to the overall reduction in weight are the front mudguard and the new belly pan with a brand new design, both made of high quality carbon.
The selling price for the Aprilia SR GT 200 Replica is RM 20,900 whereas the Aprilia RS 660 Extrema lands here with a selling price of RM 79,900.
