The Aprilia manual says 15W50.
The Yamaha manual for the XT660X and XT660R models which have the same engine units gives the following info.

Grade Temp
10W-30 -10 to 35C
10W 40 -10 to 45C
15W 40 0 to 45C
20W 40 5 to 45C
25W 50 5 to 50C

As for changing the oil, there is a link here somewhere to a site where you can download the workshop manual. This gives details of most maintenence items. Try www.apriliatec.net

Should be 10w40, we use Silkolene Comp 4 with no problems.

Most common grades for motorcycles are
10W-40 and 15W-50
the 10W-40 is mainly used (by dealers) in central Europe in countries like
Germany, UK, France (colder countries)
and the 15W-50 is used (by dealers) in countries around the Mediterranean sea (hotter weather)
I know some people that in the winter use 10W-40 and in the summer they put 15W-50, i just put 10W-40 (in Germany) because i don't want to waste my time on "which oil", i prefer to ride
