The is the distilled essence of performance and to reward the rider with riding pleasure and fun. is a unique, special and elite which complements the skills of the and takes them to extraordinary new

With the perfect riding for total control, a powerful 130 hp and an incredibly nimble, class-beating in true Aprilia tradition, the Dorsoduro 1200 is the kind of that just begs you to open the throttle. A bike is unbeatable in the bends — all Dorsoduros — that offers the high power of a genuine sports machine.

Superlative mechanicals and perfection in of chassis design are the hallmarks of all machines, and the same is naturally of the Dorsoduro 1200 which, in also boasts extremely and sophisticated looks, outstanding new of finish and trim, and levels of and smoothness never experienced on a twin this size.

agile and smooth, the Dorsoduro is powered by the all-new latest twin-cylinder engine, with the advanced technology in the segment. The 90- V2 unleashes 130 hp of record-breaking power. to Aprilia tradition, the chassis is simply without par in its class.

essential lines oozing personality, the unmistakeable design of the new 1200 makes it stand out in any The finish and trim set new standards for with details such as the tail fairing, the two-tone and the dual exhaust with heat shields.

The wind and hand guards offer wind protection on a bike is not just nimble in the bends, but is capable of significant speed. the Dorsoduro boasts class-beating solutions, too. Radial callipers, hydraulic clutch, by Wire with 3 different maps and the Matrix instrument with on board computer are all setting the Dorsoduro apart as a and exclusive project.

The Dorsoduro is available with ABS and Aprilia Control (ATC), for total fun in safety.

The unique characteristics of the Dorsoduro 1200 in detail:

• New 90- engine with four per cylinder, double overhead liquid cooling and twin ignition;

• Triple map Ride by technology (with Sport, and Rain maps)

• Electronic injection;

• Mixed gear/chain timing system;

• Exhaust with three-way catalytic and oxygen sensor;

• Ultralight frame made from steel trellis/aluminium castings outstanding torsional stiffness;

• saddle mount;

• Aluminium with lateral shock

• Fully adjustable 43 mm upside-down fork and piggy-back design monoshock;

• Brembo racing system with radial


Dorsoduro 1200 is a outrageously agile and sporty It makes no concessions whatsoever for or for anything not directly functional in total performance and riding This is why all body parts are cut to the bare minimum; just a proper race machine, the Dorsoduro 1200 eliminates that is of no use to the rider. No frills, for a that prefers to put its superlative and componentry on show instead.

Every detail is minimalised and on pure function, such as the hand guards and the motard-style number panel, which offers wind protection at speeds. These elements the pure design of the Dorsoduro perfectly, with an outstanding to detail evident in features as the two-tone paintwork of the frame, the fairing colour-coded with the of the body elements and the new dual with black heat Even the 15 litre fuel is perfectly integrated into the forms of the Dorsoduro 1200.

None of the typical acrobatics of the style are beyond the reach of bike.


The V90 is a completely new design. It is a modern, advanced unit with a oversquare cylinder geometry for a sporty temperament and smooth delivery.

Every internal of the Dorsoduro 1200 has been to optimise power delivery and full use of the incredible 130 hp unleashed by the at 8700 rpm. Every detail is conceived to complement the acrobatic character of the bike.

The characteristics of this ultra-sophisticated are as follows:

• 90- V-twin architecture;

• map Ride by Wire technology Sport, Touring and Rain

• Highly oversquare bore/…

• Offset cylinders for maximum compactness;

• Four valves per

• Double overhead camshafts by a mixed chain/gear valve system;

• Twin spark for smooth but full-bore power

• Electronic fuel injection dual throttle bodies;

• Stick-coils integrated in spark boots;

• Three-way catalytic with oxygen sensor;

• operated clutch.

The latest injection system uses injectors. In conjunction with fluid dynamics, this ensures ideal combustion, for an that is not only powerful but extremely clean. Twin ignition also contributes to emissions, as well as ensuring smooth power delivery.

sophisticated electronic engine the Aprilia Dorsoduro 1200 is the new for technology and performance in its class.
