Aprilia RS660 Tyre Guide

Our recommended tyre options for the awesome little Aprilia RS660.

Aprilia RS660 Tyre Size

The Aprilia RS660 runs a 120/70/17 front tyre and a 180/55/17 rear tyre.

By clicking the links above you’ll be taken to a list of every tyre we sell in that size. However, below you will find some of our best options for the RS660.

Here at Two Tyres we specialise in motorcycle tyres and we’re a manufacturer-approved fitting centre. We can supply any motorcycle tyre to you by mail order or you can have them fitted in our London motorcycle workshop.

Most Aprilia RS660 owners use their bike for weekend thrills and trackdays but they’re more than capable of taking on a European tour or even the daily commute. It makes sense to fit a quality tyre that’ll warm up quickly, offer plenty of edge grip and return good mileage. A budget tyre won’t cut it on this model.

The RS60 tyre sizes are one of the most common combinations and so you have plenty of choice, whether you want a tyre for Trackdays, Commuting, Fast Road Riding or that touring trip to Europe.

RS660 History

Introduced at the tail end of 2020, Aprilia’s RS660 is essentially ported by half an RSV4 engine. It punches out 98bhp and weighs just 183kg. This little rocket was designed to inspire riders who lust after the small sportsbikes of the 90s and don’t want a 200bhp wrist-wrenching monster. Instead they want a manageable corner hunter to go out and have fun on. Remember the RS250? Well the RS660 is trying to replicate that vibe. It even has a similar colour scheme!

Aprilia RS660 OEM Tyres

The RS660 comes with Pirelli Diablo Rosso 4 tyres as standard. These are excellent tyres and you’d pretty much only change these if you wanted a tyre that gave you far higher mileage or a tyre that gave you more grip for trackdays. Although in the right hands, the RS660 wearing Rosso IV tyres is going to stick with even the grippiest track rubber.

The Best Tyres for the RS660

Typically the RS660 is a bike for the biker who wants one do-it-all weapon in the garage. Most are used for pleasure riding but we do have customers who use them to commute and some who use them to go performance touring.  Quite a few of our customers also take them on track.

It’s interesting to note from Aprilia’s brochure they also recommend running the 180/60-section rear tyre. From the spec sheet: “Radial tubeless, ant: 120/70 ZR 17 post: 180/55 ZR 17 (alternative 180/60 ZR17). So there you have it. If you’re a track-day junkie, an 180/60 is a good option.
