Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 ABS

2009 Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 ABS Croatia

Some rear end kept falling off. under warranty.


This is my first motorcycle, it I drove a 50cc Peugeot :-)

I’ll write up a little about owning the bike, it as how a motorcycle rookie experiences new called. motorcycles :-)

I tried a few bikes before this one owned them! I always to try before I buy to see if that is for me). And up was an Yamaha R1 a few years back, fast on the straights and looks … but.

That’s it :-/ I just didn’t see myself fun at speeds 200+ km/h the bike really accelerates (it is slow if not revved, not for me :-) ), when I hear anything and feel someone is beating me with a trout.

Next up was a Kawasaki Z750 year, I felt like I something for touring, economical and not expensive. It is economical, excellent good value for money but the was. Well it was plain, it did not consume me as I expected.

Then my came by and gave me his KTM 660 SMC for a ride. Oh my God. Yes it was loud (very uncomfortable, not as fast as the bikes I tried but it was sooooo much fun to it, throttle response, the huuuuuge of thrust through the whole rev sick 1 cyl sound, bicycle-a-like unorthodox non-conformist FU-world That was the final straw, I was on supermoto for life I think :-)

The ABS. I cannot praise it everything you can imagine this has. Fun, fast, (ABS), economical (6.5l/100km hard driving), value for (under 10k EUR, KTM’s are expensive but they have little edge on the fun factor go through later), it has the addictive V2 … looks, etc.

As always with me and my vehicles, were quite some with the dealer until I them that an Dorsoduro an ABS option exists and is available for To sum it up, I bought the bike on my own without any help from the dealer, I gave them the money :-)

The FUN FUN FUN 😀 Although it is pretty heavy for a bike (206kg) it still beautifully, maybe not as nimble as the KTM’s but it’s darn way and stable!

I tuned the suspension as as I could and now it handles like on although it is a pretty rough over potholes, unlike the setup that was way too soft front end in corners, a lot of nose under braking/acceleration).

The ABS. I don’t know why bike on the road and sale doesn’t have ABS. people laugh at me pff, and you yourself a true biker but I mind.

They don’t mean that, they want to sound cool :-) ABS saved me from serious a number of times, and one time a possibly fatal fall. the feeling that you can brake on every possible surface you can makes your ride so enjoyable, safer, mind You name it, rain, glass-a-like surface, you just pull the levers, and wait for the bike to if you want YOU CAN STEER IT WHILE THE ABS IS

This saved me from ending a car that stopped in of me (letting go another driver a side street), ABS kicks in, you and steer away from the car and what, my front wheels end up at the seats of the car I just missed. ABS I would probably rear the or fall on the road and then end the car. ABS IS A MUST ON A MOTORCYCLE, EVER LET ANYONE TELL YOU AGAINST IT.

IF IT IS A 2000 EUR OPTION, PAY IT NO MATTER THE PRICE. I cannot express the ABS enough!!

As with all bikes, the where you can unleash the beast inside you and the bike are limited of poor road quality, but few kilometers you can squeeze out at personal potential just renew you all that negative aspects of a motorcycle, the ride is simply and returns enormous amounts of on your face :-D.

The bad points are almost none:

The onboard computer average consumption is ridiculously inaccurate. the BC says 4.1l/100km the actual is 4.7l/100km (0.6l difference), and get when it says 4.8l/100km it is 6.6l/100km (1.8l difference)!!

Fuel tank is impossible to without fuel spilling and all over the bike. It’s not usual big hole tank, the of it is complicated and if you’re not careful refueling) you get a mess.

— tank is exactly 11 liters, the advertised 12 liters (yes, one liter means on a small

— I miss the outside option, I’ve seen Aprilias have it (Shiver) but not one :-/

I probably forgot to mention a lot of maybe I’ll write in the replies as I remember them, but one stands, this is a true day supermoto that is probably on the of something new in these bland of R’s, CBR’s etc. You know you want one!

P.S. there is a vid of my bike in on YouTube, you’ll notice it by the longest Dorsoduro ABS video 😉

you buy another motorcycle from manufacturer? Yes
