    Interesting that the price has not increased at all for the DD.

    I would definitely prefer a separate forum for the 900's. Also a re-title of this forum, since it's 2016! My OCD is offended!

    Interesting that they are continuing with the Shiv and DD, but they have not invested too much and can continue to make cash on the original investment. I find the 900 somewhat compelling, but if I was shopping for a new bike in that cc range I would be very tempted by the KTM 790 Duke, which I am sure will look somewhat different by the time it reaches production

    There's a video of the bike if you scroll down this page.
    http://www.motorradonline.de/motorra...ma-2016/796220

    You'll see a lot of bits that are very familiar (e.g. even the taillight), but the changes are mostly for the better (except the awful exhaust outlets).
    Certainly is a good looking bike, although I don't like the unshrouded headlight (as with the Shiver when first introduced).
    I like the idea of a 900cc 90 degree V-twin in this package.

    The appearance is very similar to the 750. At a casual glance it would be hard to spot the difference.
    In marketing terms I feel there is a missed opportunity there to update the styling more to give it a refreshed and separate identity (which then could subsequently be passed down to the 750 in later years for an economic update).

    If there was the inducement of a good power hike and some better quality suspenders it would be grabbing my attention a little more. As it is, I am currently a little underwhelmed.

    the 900s have their own forum now.....the electronics are all new compared to the 750, so it needs its own forum. Looks like lots of the bodywork, dash, and suspension also changed.

    Im not sure what you mean about "Fixing" the gas tank, I assume you mean that it can expand when using gas with ethanol as an additive. I know Ducati was sued over that problem.

    Now if you are referring to the tanks gas capacity there is no change between the 750 and the 900cc
    I'd rather be on my bike thinking about god than be in church thinking about my bike 8)

    yea thats what I mean. They expand so much on the dorso 750 that they need replacing and/or you cannot put it back on the bike.

    They both look significantly more "beefy". I'm definitely liking Aprilia's answer to EU4.

    I could only get 110~120 miles on my Shiver before the engine light came on though. With larger displacement, it worries me that the fuel tanks have been left unchanged ... I assume a larger engine will consume petrol at a faster rate which means an even shorter range...

    Anyhow ... Hypermotard 939 vs Dorsoduro 900 battle, anyone?

    I must add though -- that while I had my Honda CBR for a mere week ... the Shiver was my first real bike. I felt I could handle a 750cc bike -- I don't feel the same about a 900cc bike. I worry that this may turn off new riders to the brand.

    You would think this thing would really benefit with an exhaust and tune with the new euro laws
