Aprilia Dorsoduro Overview

Aprilia has competing in the supermoto & enduro categories for a long while now as a manufacturer. Therefore it was only a matter of time & a fitting tribute for the manufacturer to come up with a tough & hardy supermoto based offering. Enter the Aprilia Dorsoduro 1200 ABS, one of the best offerings that Aprilia has come up with till date. Supermotos are essentially motocross machines fitted with road going tyres. The focal point on these machines is low weight, high agility and maximum manoeuvrability all coupled with blistering performance. As a product idea, the sheer potential applications for such a bike are dynamite. And the Dorsoduro 1200 is exactly that. Dynamite!!

Aprilia Dorsoduro Engine & Transmission

Powered by a longitudinally mounted 90 degree v-twin engine, the Dorsoduro unit has an 1197 cc capacity. This mighty engine features a massive oversquare layout with bore X stroke dimensions of 106 X 67.8 mm and a compression ratio of 12:1 alongwith 4 valves per cylinder churns out a maximum of 130 Hp@ 8,700 rpm & peak torque of 115 NM @ 7,200 rpm. One might think that from a 1200 cc engine these figures are mighty small but then one would be excused for feeling that way. 130 hp on a small lightweight frame gives it a beautiful power to weight ratio. All that power from the crank is transferred to the wheel via a six speed gearbox that also benefits from a hydraulic clutch.

Aprilia Dorsoduro Mileage

The ride-by-wire system on the Aprilia has been optimised to provide better combustion & better fuel economy. Aprilia claims an overall fuel economy of 16 kmpl. In the city one can expect between 9-10 kmpl with highways seening economy rise moderately to 14 kmpl.

Aprilia Dorsoduro Performance and Handling

The Dorsoduro 1200 has been created keeping both rocket-like performance as well as sweet & forgiving handing in mind. This shows in the way the bike rides, accelerates & brakes. Power delivery is very linear and the credit for that goes to the engine management system that features 3 ride modes' Sport, Touring & rain. This along with the ride-by-wire makes riding the Dorsoduro a lot of fun. One takes a little while to get used to the big supermoto's power delivery but once you're familiar with it, its smooth sailing all the way. The 2-1-2 exhaust system helps egg the rider on even more by adding its own symphony into the mix. Handling is the hallmark of this bike. The super agile bike has a lightweight frame that is engineered for rigidity as well as safety. The trellis frame featured on the bike is modular by design & it bolts on to twin aluminium sideplates that link up with the rear swingarm. This swingarm gets a piggyback rear Sachs monoshock suspension that is full adjustable for preload, rebound & damping. The front suspension is a Sachs 43 mm USD front fork with upto 160mm of travel. The engine has also been mounted in such a way that the whole layout is very compact indeed and optimised for mass centralisation thus helping with the handling. Since this is a supermoto inspired setup, the bike should be easily able to flick from corner to corner without stressing out the rider. Braking duties are taken up by the ABS enabled Brembo dual disc setup up front running 320 mm floating discs with radially mounted four piston callipers. The rear runs a 240 mm single disc with a single piston Brembo calliper.
