2012 Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 Specs and Review - Developed in collaboration with the Division of Racing Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 has been created by combining the best characteristics of a sports bike with the best that racing has to offer super motard. The result is a concentrated essence of performance and technology, the bike is really special, extreme and elite who can make any rider feel comfortable.
Lightweight, agile and strong, Dorsoduro 750 is powered by the latest generation machines and offers the most advanced technology in its class. Through the use of state of the art electronic engine management, Aprilia’s compact 90 ° V-twin gives a blistering performance unmatched by its competitors, with tremendous power output 122.6 hp specific / liter and maximum torque of 82 Nm at just 4500 rpm.
In keeping with Aprilia traditions, the architecture of the chassis is unmatched in its class. After an acclaimed debut mixed trellis / aluminum frame in a special ultra-SXV, the application sets the layout of the Dorsoduro’s characteristic features of the Aprilia motards, offering directional level, reactivity agility and steering precision far beyond any competitor.
Aprilia Dorsoduro is designed essentially offers only the best in terms of componentry, technical specifications and finishes. Four piston radial calipers, wave discs, a hydraulic wet clutch, adjustable front and rear suspension, “Tri-Map” ride by wire and Matrix instrument panel with a computer board all contribute to make the Dorsoduro unique product completely. Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 in, the frame structure of the minimal and aggressive style of mechanical visual spectacular, which became an integral part of the design. Aprilia 750 Dorsoduro has been designed for riders to make the bike, very nimble and sporty radical, in which each individual element is directed precisely to maximum riding pleasure. All external bodywork have been pared down to absolute bare minimum, as in bicycle racing, anything that is not essential to the performance has been stripped, while the front panel of the race has been retained to emphasize the close relationship with the bike racing world
Narrow mid bike parts – an area that interact most with the rider’s body movement while riding hard – emphasizes the extreme compactness of the bike. Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 is very slim and agile, allowing the rider to feel one with the machine directly. After a short meter, you feel as if the bike is an extension of your body. These results have been achieved by the Aprilia engineers to design a saddle, average length – configuration borrowed directly from racing – which allows the rider to assume the most effective riding position at all times and allows enough freedom of movement to cope with tight turns. Fairing, tail curved also envelops the compact dual exhaust: a solution that not only creates the feel of the design is really aggressive, but also a very good symmetry in the proportions and weight distribution. The guard’s hand, comes from the SXV Supermoto, featuring stylish and sleek lever effectively protected against any accidental contact.
Aprilia 750 cc 90 ° V-twin has been revised to emphasize the fiery temperament of the Dorsoduro. Optimization exercise has touched many aspects of the 749.9 cc engine (bore and stroke by 92 and 56.4 mm), and repair of mechanical and electronic twin-cylinder engine that makes the benchmark not only for its capacity class, but also for the larger-engined rivals. Elected directly by the rider from the handlebar mounted controls, even with the bike moving (but with the throttle closed – for greater security), the three options – Sport, Touring and Rain – radically change the character of Dorsoduro, with aggressive, immediate response in Sport mode, soft Touring mode of power delivery, which is ideal for everyday use, and power delivery is very safe, designed to handle the poor conditions, in rain mode.
Exhaust is made entirely of stainless steel, with manifold converges to a single silencer with tailpipes twin undersaddle. Generous volume reducer allows the engine to breathe freely for optimal performance. Electronics and advanced engineering technology used allows the twin cylinder Aprilia machine to pump out 92 hp at 8750 rpm and maximum torque of 82 Nm at 4500 rpm: put the values ??of Dorsoduro in direct competition with bikes with higher engine capacity.
So touching showrooms, Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 is also available as a detuned version for new riders who qualified, with limited power to 25 kW (35 kW or in Spanish). By Wire throttle up means power management is not to be cut over the entire rev range, as happened with the bike is less advanced, so that power delivery is exactly the same as in the full version of power, until the maximum power limit is reached. As a result, Dorsoduro 750 offers better acceleration than the equivalent of 25 kW version of its competitors, to experience much more rewarding ride.
