Aprilia Dorsoduro 1200 1200 Review

Look & Feel

The Aprilia Dorsoduro 1200 looks like a dirtbike but with noticeable touches of supermoto styling that flows from its mudguard, headlight and narrow seat down to the centerpiece and dual muffler. Everything is carefully built giving it the mean look and inviting spirit making you throw a leg and give it a ride. Once sit on, you can immediately feel comfortable and connected to the machine. Seat height is at 870mm able to accommodate riders at different height though it could be difficult for smaller ones to plant both feet on the ground. Riding position is derived from most supermoto bikes.

Engine & Performance

The powerful and torquey v-twin engine is very impressive on the road, traveling to 100 kmph is achieved at only 4.5 seconds. Blasting off to 200 kmph is also possible if you can withstand the wind and continue to stride until reaching the 240 kmph top speed. It has 3 level of traction settings which are Rain, Sport and Touring to help you ride smoothly under all varying conditions. The Rain will drop the power to 100, touring provides smoother power delivery and sport for extreme performance. There is also plenty of usable torque especially on the low-end, throttle control is manageable and the Dorsoduro 1200 rides comfortably even at higher speed.
