Segment: Sport Touring

The 2003 MY Aprilia RST 1000 Futura has, at its heart, 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.

This machine comes standard with a aerodynamic fairing and a medium-sized windshield, offering excellent protection against whatever mother nature may throw at you, a high-end suspension package composed of a inverted front fork and an adjustable shock absorber as a rear suspension, dual front disc brakes for increased safety and can be fitted with modern panniers and a rear trunk, for extra storage space.
