Aprilia RS440 teased ahead of September 7 launch

The Aprilia RS440 will compete with the KTM RC 390, Yamaha YZF-R3 and Kawasaki Ninja 400 in the Indian market.

Aprilia has released a teaser of its upcoming sports bike for the Indian market. The new middleweight model is likely to be the RS440. It will be launched on September 7, 2023.

The Aprilia RS440 has already been spotted testing in India. It is likely to borrow design cues from the RS660, featuring a similar fairing and dual headlamps. The RS440 could get a digital instrument console with Bluetooth connectivity, ride-by-wire and traction control.

The RS440 will use a 440cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine. It could deliver around 48 BHP and is expected to be paired with a 6-speed gearbox.

The bike will be suspended by an upside-down fork at the front and a monoshock at the rear. The brake setup will consist of discs at both ends and dual-channel ABS.

The Aprilia RS440 will compete with the KTM RC 390, Yamaha YZF-R3 and Kawasaki Ninja 400 in the Indian market.
