Same concerns about reliability. My 'local' dealer is still over an hour from my house, and I just as soon never have to go there unless I'm in the neighborhood and feel like checking out the new inventory.I've been eyeing this bike ever since its announcement last year. Two things worry me though: Aprilia reliability and passenger room.
The reliability doesn't worry me too much, actually. By being patient and waiting a year or so, I can keep an eye out for reports on reliability issues. Also, warranty laws are quite clear here so issues that crop up in the first year of ownership will have to be dealt with by the dealer.
Passenger room is a bit of a thing, though. I have rarely ridden with a passenger, but I was "grooming" my girlfriend for 2up riding a bit. We bought her the stuff she needs to ride with me and I was planning on doing some rides. COVID threw a bit of a spanner in the works there, but it's something I'm looking forward to. Looks like the RS660 won't have room for a passenger. Or am I wrong? Might be worth it waiting for the Tuono 660 instead?
