Dorsoduro 1200 Motorcycle – Just 15 months after its on the market, the Aprilia Dorsoduro has received its first upgrade. not a radical evolution by all means, but it is worth a blast up and down the road to the top of the Etna volcano at an of almost 10,000 feet.

I was I reached that location on the good day for a nice ride two eruptions that dropped a layer of ashes on the roads, and after a fierce storm washed the roads to adequate conditions. This 2012 of Aprilia’s maxi-supermoto bike a day of truce from those hostile environmental conditions.

Aside from providing new that extract the best the bike’s unchanged basic the Aprilia specialists have a host of bags and other accessories. That makes a lot of since they have set the 1200 on a more-precise mission as an putting the previous model’s combination of solid power, handling and superb comfort to its use.

On the technical side, the new 1200 officially shed 7 pounds off its curb weight, it down to 493½. It also gained about 4 horsepower up to I say unofficially because at the original model introduction in 2010, alleged 130 hp at 8700 rpm, but was an exercise in rounding out the numbers; latest figures are more

Most of the weight reduction from the adoption of new cast wheels that each three very elegant spokes. They’re similar to the 1199 Panigale S wheels we at the unveiling ceremony last

The modern and rationally designed dohc, four-valve, 90-degree engine has a 106mm bore and …. Its added power for only resulted from the process coming to full thus more accurately the correct tolerances, and from the of the integrated ignition-injection system by The electronics on the Dorsoduro 1200 ABS by Continental, teamed with a Brembo braking system twin 320mm front and radial-mount, four piston

Along with ABS comes a effective traction-control system limits rear-wheel spin via selectable levels. In addition, the of the ride-by-wire system includes levels of throttle response: performance of the 130 hp engine; 130 hp but with throttle response and power and a reduction to 100 hp and very mild for riding in the rain. All levels are at the touch of a button.

For suspension duties, the Dorsoduro now uses a 43mm inverted fork at the front and a cantilevered gas-charged shock at the rear. travel is a generous 160mm/155mm,

With a seat height of in. the Dorsoduro is a rather tall That shouldn’t be too much of a however, because the seat is designed to let even a 5-foot-10 reach down to the ground with both feet.

Given the good grip I set all the electronic systems for my ride up and Etna on their highest The twisty road to the top of the big volcano as the perfect breakfast for the new Dorsoduro. The liter V-Twin is beautifully strong and aggressive but never so.

Having the traction control set to was no problem, as I found that the traction under control required prudent use of my right

In just the first 1000 of my ride, I realized that the weight of the bike, along the lessened gyroscopic effect of the new made a remarkable difference, the bike feel livelier its predecessor. This despite the geometry remaining unchanged, and I the 27.3-degree steering-head angle excessive.

Nonetheless, the Dorsoduro is extremely and surefooted, and the long-travel Sachs confidently scoops up the bumps on the underlining the bike’s great quality. Though I never on the ABS, the brakes proved and precise, always producing reassuring decelerations.

When I pushing to more-aggressive lean though, the extra loading the suspension start pumping sequences of micro-bumps. Both units are adjustable for compression and as well as spring preload, but on the of the big volcano, there was no possibility for me to any adjustments.

I should have of that prior to setting off on a ride, which still was pleasant, suspension softness The practical qualities of the revised 1200 were worth the and the investment. It is a very solid and motorcycle that offers potential as an adventure-tourer.
