    New Aprilia Dorsoduro genuine accessories

    http://www.aprilia.com/en-US/Model/3...cessories.aspx

    New genuine accessories tank cover, bag and sides plus a tail pack.

    I'm really not sure about those tank side bags... cute, but I'm just not sure.

    I don't like the tank side bags.

    The tank bag looks good but it would probably get annoying when you have to stop for fuel (ie. quite frequently)

    The tail pack looks ok as well IMO.

    Its good that Aprilia keep adding to the DD accessories
    But they should be making a bigger fuel tank like Ducati do for the HMotard,combine that with a gel seat and you have the perfect tourer/bike lol

    And anybody looking to buy the Arrows,don't use that picture as your guide to how they look!!!
    That picture makes them look rubbish (i have got the Arrow's),much better in person....trust me.

    I must agree about the Arrows, I havn't got tham on my bike, but I had a look at the ones fitted to a new Dorsoduro at the Rocket centre in Blackburn and I must admit the photos do not do them justice.
    I have never really liked the look of any of the after market pipes for the Dorso, but I think it is difficult to photograph them as you just see a huge gap between the pipes and the rear fairing. Having seen the Arrows in the flesh I can tell you they look great.

    Having just read your post,my old man has just admitted that the Arrow's on the DD sound even better than the Akra's on his 990 KTM!!!

    And i thought the KTM sounded good.

    They seem to be putting much more and better stuff together for the DD.

    OMG! I've got an idea: how about a 19 litre tank, 21" front tyre and trail rubber.......... always knew the DD would be useful for something.

    It is strange how they seem to be concentrating on the Dorso so much now. I presume its because they finally seem to have sorted getting accessories out for new bikes and I get the impression the Dorsoduro is a big seller for Aprilia this year so it must be where they think the money is.

    As I said, the DD has potential as an adventure bike. No way is it a motard.
