2011 Aprilia Tuareg to be unveiled in Milan this year
According to a report on Motociclismo, the new Aprilia Tuareg adventure tourer will be unveiled at the EICMA Show in Milan this year. The bike will be fitted with a 750cc V-twin engine (the same unit that’s also used on the Shiver and the Dorsoduro), steel tube chassis and a 21-inch front wheel, which means the Tuareg 750 will be fully optimised for off-road use.
Later, Aprilia may also do a more street-oriented version of the Tuareg, which will be fitted with a 1,200cc engine and a 19-inch front wheel. With bikes like the Yamaha XT1200Z Super Ténéré and the new Ducati Multistrada 1200 having recently been launched and with Aprilia also joining the fray with the Tuareg 750/1200, it seems the BMW R1200GS is finally getting all the competition it ever wanted… :-)
