Or, you may be one of the who are quitting the large capacity, sportbike in order to keep licence.

For whatever reason, I can you the Dorsoduro will excite blood vessels to bursting should you want to take the to the edge of its capabilities! Aprilia captured a motorcycle which is so fun to ride that it’s not funny. Not too unlike the Ducati and the KTM 990SMR, which are in the same

As expected the Dorsoduro was a delight to on the open road. There’s space to take a partner in comfort compared to many and you can literally fang it as much as you through the turns.

Like the other oversize style machines, the Dorsoduro is tall with an 870mm height, and the seat is on the hard for real long trips. a few hundred kilometres didn’t this rider any. The and wide bars coupled its tall seat height it very easy to change seemingly just at the thought of it.

style of motorcycle typically has a wheelbase, including the Dorsoduro at 1528mm. This helps stability at higher speeds, keeping a fairly steep (compared to a trailbike) for greater which can sometimes lead to a bit of a wheel wobble if too aggressive on the when flicking it about, and it under hard power on exit.

When riding around at anything less than 3750rpm the engine tended to when on constant throttle, the bike to surge a little as I along. The solution was to change to get the revs up, or slip the clutch a bit if in gear.

Supplied by NTB Racing, our Dorsoduro 1200 is light that the engine can be left to its own anywhere above 3000rpm, to its massive 115Nm of Aprilia torque — and I keep its hard acceleration when on the gas in sport mode. But whatever you’re doing, there is no away from the 1200cc of V-twin grunt, available to you at a notice. Our test bike has 4000km on the clock.

I enjoyed the very high Brembo calipers, Sachs inverted fork forks and the Sachs rear shock, is mounted to the swingarm, without a Both front and rear are adjustable and on the forks one leg has compression with the other leg rebound The rear shock is very to moving more than one or two but the forks are quite the opposite.

The radially-mounted Brembo front are so effective most riders want to explore the final percent of their capabilities. But worry, the first 95% should you stopped well in advance of danger. The rear Brembo really good too, so they deliver more for any type of riding conditions.

They tend to roll the very tops of the loose preventing the tyres from down, and onto the road where you get control.

What I did like are the plastic handgrip which absolutely suit type of bike, and cut down the on your hands. The small cover works better anticipated too, lifting the to mid-torso height at 120kmh.

bike is serious fun and, if into your motorcycling, I you to have a go on one. The riding is quite different from a bike but the super-fast cornering are there for the taking.
