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.
