2010 Aprilia Dorsoduro | Review

750 Factory (Euro

Two years ago Aprilia launched the Dorsoduro 750 with Aprilia’s own 750cc 90-degree V-twin Time is now ripe for the Factory and that means less and better handling in Noale

There are not a lot of changes that the Factory from the standard and the top carbon fiber structure a two pounds. The new Sachs 43mm adjustable front fork changes things a little as it’s top kit. To make the Factory stand out more, has added red paint to the tubular of the frame.

The engine is the same 92 motor found in the standard but for the first time we got to sample the triple riding mode.

I get questions regarding how the Dorsoduro to the Ducati Hypermotard 796. not a fair comparison, as the Aprilia is and hence more powerful. If you to put the Dorsoduro up against a model the Bologna firm, it would to be the Hypermotard 1100.

As such, the 750 Factory is good value for as you get top performance from a mid-displacement that nearly matches an air-cooled twin.

Out on the twisty, but still fast, in the south of France, there are few bikes I would rather be on to new territory. The Dorsoduro Factory is forgiving should the surface be bad and the mediocre. The Dunlop Qualifier II are standard on the Dorsoduro and, only 92 horsepower to cope these stick to the tarmac glue.

The tires are of big bike 120/55-ZR17 front and a 180/55-ZR17

The chassis is a lot sportier than on the 750 and, comparing the two, I’d the Dorsoduro Factory any day. I am the corners as hot as the Aprilia test in front of me allows, which is far hot enough for the Dorso. I spent of the time being slightly that I couldn’t go as fast as I to, but still managed to play to know that the handling is top

It’s the longer swing-arm and that separates the Dorsoduro the Shiver, handling-wise, and I much the supermoto style. It’s a thing, where I can just those wide handlebars as much as I like towards the at great lean while the weight transfer with my body. The chassis seems to be for a much more powerful as I find myself wishing for more when exiting the

The Sachs forks provides of feel and, despite only 43mm units, it is proper supermoto equipment. It is the story at the rear with a adjustable Sachs shock. front and back suspension a supermoto-worthy 6.3 inches travel. The brake does a fine job you sideways into those corners. The radial brakes on a set of wavy discs in the front are than enough to even the Dorsoduro trackworthy.

On the roads, provide top feel through Sachs fork and I kept without finding the limits.

to the engine–the Touring mode, gives a less aggressive response than the slightly Sport mode. I still Sport mode, though, as an riding style suits bike well. The third is the Rain mode where is reduced.

In town, I’d opt for the Touring but Sport everywhere else.

I empty the gears quickly and the gearbox is easy to work with the hydraulic clutch. it up in first gear and you’ll be fine wheelies all day, but second gear and it is virtually to bring the front very much the same as a single supermoto in this area, the difference that you can clutch it up at a speed. With 6.3 inches of travel at the back the Dorsoduro gets a bit light at the front full acceleration and there are movements that to me are completely as a should feel.

The Dorsoduro’s is much more aggressive than in the Shiver, but goes out of quicker at high rpm. The has a version of the engine tuned for top end power and produces three more. I never missed extra three horsepower, as I the Dorsoduro will tackle the corners faster.

The rumble the 750 V-twin brings me slightly in time to the performance twins of the ’90s when they more meaty than A couple of the test bikes had the Arrow titanium pipes and following one of those I could what sounded like to my ears.

The 2010 Aprilia Dorsoduro is more of a cosmetic upgrade a significantly better Dorsoduro. The of pounds saved on the carbon parts isn’t really a point over the standard is the higher spec suspension. really sells it to me over the Dorsoduro is simply the fact it’s got a red painted trellis

It looks less bland and an good motorcycle is now marginally in a flashier package. Guess one less excuse not to get one.
