2021 Aprilia Tuono 660 MC Commute Review

There’s something that makes the middleweight naked category so enticing. Here, manufacturers combine technical know-how and performance of open-class machines with the approachability and user friendliness of smaller-displacement bikes. A prime example? It’s hard to argue the all-new 2021 Aprilia Tuono 660. This middleweight is an exciting new offering from the Italian manufacturer that eases the barrier of entry into the premium brand while still offering a heck of a riding experience.

2021 Aprilia RSV4 MC Commute Review

Aprilia raised eyebrows in the superbike segment more than a decade ago with its all-new RSV4 (introduced for the 2010 model year). Designed for competition, the RSV4 harnessed a high-revving 60-degree V-4 engine engineered for the best of both sportbike worlds: immediate corner exiting grunt of a V-twin, with the hard-hitting top-end power of a four-cylinder. Assembled in a tidy package, with a rowdy exhaust note and usefully demonic character, it was an instant hit. Not to rest on its laurels, the Italian brand has thoughtfully leveraged its racing pedigree (the brand has netted 294 Grand Prix roadracing race wins) evolving this platform into one of the most capable modern superbikes. And it gets even better for 2021.

Ducati’s 2021 Streetfighter V4 S in the Dark Stealth colorway certainly makes a statement. Especially when draped in carbon, magnesium, and titanium components from the Ducati Performance catalog.

The dry clutch conversion kit is an absolute must-have. If you’re an old school Ducati superbike guy or gal, you need this setup.

The accessory racing seat offers a surprisingly level of comfort. However, it’s a tad too grippy for our taste. Short riders beware, however. It raises the seat height to just over 34 in.

The sound that emits from this twin-muffler Akrapovic titanium exhaust is pure ecstasy. It is a tad loud however for use in urban areas.

A 5-inch color TFT dash display keeps tabs on machine vitals. The display offers crisp fonts, however the user interface could be improved and the size could be larger compared to rivals in the segment.

2022 Suzuki Hayabusa GSX1300RR First Ride Review

There’s a new link pipe between cylinder one and four which helps improve low to midrange torque. Despite each muffler now having a separate catalytic converter, size has decreased by 1.98 liters (0.5 gallons). With other changes, and despite meeting Euro 5 emission standards, weight has been reduced by 4.5 pounds from the previous model.
