On September 22, 2006, Suzuki revealed a significantly updated GSX-R1000 for 2007 at the Paris motor show. The new bike gained 14 lb (6.4 kg) over the 2006 model which was due to its new exhaust system and new emissions regulations. To counter this weight increase, Suzuki claimed improved aerodynamics along with a faster revving engine and larger throttle body to increase power to 168 hp (125 kW) @ 11,500 rpm. Although not a completely new model, the engine and chassis have been updated. It also featured three different engine mapping configurations, selectable via two buttons located on the right handlebar. One up, and one down arrow to cycle between Mode A (Unrestricted), Mode B (Reduced power until 50% throttle is applied), and Mode C (Reduced power throughout the rpm regardless of throttle application). It also received a Hydraulic clutch.

You can barely ﬁnd words to express the riding fun and the feeling that the KTM 990 Super Duke gives you when it’s in motion. Just as KTM re-invented the Streetﬁghter, you try to invent new words for what happens beneath you curve after curve. The KTM 990 Super Duke sweeps through curves – ultra-precise, radical and agile. The landscape ﬂies past fast, faster, much too fast. You feel the road, the centrifugal force and want more.

Aprilia Dorsoduro stirred up the maxi supermoto segment, but the Dorsoduro Factory goes further. A refined bike, even lighter and more efficient, whose mission is "fun". A real standard special, a concentration of performance and technology.
The word "Factory" is never used just by chance in Aprilia. In the language of the enthusiasts it refers to elite bikes fitted out with the best technology and made with the best materials. Light, agile, powerful, the Dorsoduro Factory doesn't belie its name; it's heart is the latest 750 dual cylinder and it boasts technical solutions unique for this segment. Thanks to the advanced electronic management, the compact Aprilia 90° V twin engine offers extremely high performance levels, similar to those of much bigger engines.
The chassis, as becomes the Aprilia tradition, is without rivals in this category. The Dorsoduro Factory exploits the technology that Aprilia has developed, dominating the Supermoto competitions with the incredible SXV that won 5 world championships between 2004 and 2008.
The chassis, with its tubular frame and aluminium structure, is one of the distinctive elements of the Dorsoduro Factory - a common thread that unites the highly specialised Aprilia racing models with the most exciting twin cylinder supermoto on the market.
With its essential design, characterised by the considerable use of carbon fibre for the top structure, Aprilia Dorsoduro Factory boasts components, technical fittings and trim features of the highest levels. Brembo 4-piston radial callipers, Wave discs, oil-bath hydraulic clutch, fully adjustable gas-operated single shock absorber with separate tank, a sophisticated multi-adjustable fork, Ride by Wire “Tri-Map” and Matrix instrument panel with on-board computer - these are the elements that help to make this bike unique.
