THE SUPERMOTARD FROM APRILIA EVOLVES WITH THE SOLE OBJECTIVE OF PROVIDING MAXIMUM RIDING FUN.
A POWERFUL TWIN-CYLINDER WITH 90 NM OF TORQUE COMBINED WITH BAR-SETTING CHASSIS ARCHITECTURE ENHANCES ITS DISTINCTIVE CHARACTERISTIC AS A FUN BIKE
FULL MULTIMAP RIDE-BY-WIRE, TRACTION CONTROL AND ABS ROUND OUT A TECHNICAL PACKAGE PAR EXCELLENCE
Aprilia Dorsoduro is the fun bike par excellence. Born out of an ingenious intuition by Aprilia, it was built with the sole objective of providing the most possible road riding fun, drawing from the best characteristics of sport bikes and supermotards. The result is a bike with advanced technical solutions, agile and with performance at the top of its category. A truly special bike, achieved not only thanks to Aprilia's skills in packaging particularly efficient chassis architectures combined with high performance powerplants, but also thanks to collaboration with the Aprilia Racing Department, capable of earning a total of 54 world titles in the most difficult and selective competitions where they have participated, 7 of which in the world Supermoto championship.
Dorsoduro 900 is born out of Aprilia's solid tradition in this motorcycle segment and it is a true thrill generator. The exclusivity is also due to its original and innovative technical choices, like the mixed steel trellis/aluminium plates frame with excellent handling and tight cornering characteristics. The 90° V-twin engine puts a smile on the rider's face every time the throttle is twisted, thanks to the characteristics of maximum torque and power that amplify its personality. The fine electronic management that includes, besides the Ride-by-wire multimap accelerator, traction control and ABS, complete the technical equipment on the Dorsoduro 900.
THE DESIGN: THE BALANCING POINT BETWEEN FORM AND FUNCTION
The Aprilia Dorsoduro 900 project places riding fun at the centre of its focus: for this reason, the superstructures are reduced to the minimum indispensable, as anything that is not essential for performance and maximum riding pleasure has been foregone. The technical elements, on the other hand, play a fundamental role, becoming a fundamental part of the design. It is not just the hand guards on the handlebar and the number plate on the front that highlight the close bond with the racing world. The shape of the centre area, the one that most involves the rider during sporty riding, also highlight the design created to achieve optimized and compact dimensions that allow the rider to find the right feeling straight away. Aprilia engineers achieved this result by designing a long and flat saddle, clearly derived from the sports world, capable of ensuring the most effective riding position at all times and allowing plenty of room for longitudinal movement.
The tail is one of the most representative aesthetic aspects of the Dorsoduro: sleek and slender, it also houses the double exhaust, a solution that allows for excellent proportional symmetry and weight distribution.
The frame and the cylinder head covers, painted red, are yet another sporty feature. Gritty finish combines with the graphics in the Adrenalinic Silver colour scheme.
