Segment: Sport Touring

The 2001 MY Aprilia RST 1000 Futura is addressed to that category of riders who want to spend as much time as possible behind the bars, but also one that is capable of putting a smile on one's face with just a twist of the throttle.

It can be equipped with a wide range of accessories, which seriously increase it's long haul capabilities.

In the tech/engine department, it sports a liquid-cooled, four-stroke, 998cc, V-Twin powerplant paired to a six-speed manual transmission, and can produce a claimed 113 horsepower and 96 Nm of torque.
