The 2010 Aprilia Dorsoduro Factory turns particularly aggressive aesthetics into one of its strong points. The new colors and carbon fiber top structure underline the sporty nature of a motorcycle that proudly shares the Factory name with the sportiest Aprilia bikes.

The Aprilia Dorsoduro Factory is incredibly sleek and agile, managing to create an immediate harmony with the rider. The long, flat saddle facilitates those rider movements typical of the supermoto; the Dorsoduro Factory backs up the rider at all times.

The compact, curvy tail fairing also envelops the dual exhaust: a solution that not only creates a really aggressive design feel, but also excellent symmetry in the proportions and weight distribution. The hand guards, derived from the Supermoto SXV, display a sleek style and effectively protect the levers against any accidental contact.

The Aprilia 750 90° V twin engine represents the current state of the art for this type of motor drive. The electronic management is the cream of this engine, which uses a second generation Ride by Wire system equipped with triple mapping.

The three options – Sport, Touring and Rain – can be selected while actually riding, thanks to a gas closed command on the handlebar; they radically modify the character of the Dorsoduro Factory, offering an aggressive, immediate response in Sport mode, more gentle (ideal for tourism) in Touring mode, and extremely safe (even in conditions of poor road-holding) in Rain mode.

Thanks to the electronic and mechanical technology used, the Aprilia dual cylinder reaches 92hp at 8,750 rpm and a maximum torque of 82 Nm at 4,500 rpm: values that put the Dorsoduro in direct competition with bikes of a much higher engine capacity.
