1200 Dorso mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmh Stu likes it a lot
I presume this will be at the Milan bike show in November, I hope so as I am going on the Friday.

I noticed on the picture....
its mainly white like my 750 ( they must have liked my photos on here :p: )
its not got wavey discs
this one has ABS
looks like brembo brake calipers instead of aprilia ones on standard 750
new engine clutch case cover
the oil cooler will get all the crap from the front wheel and need a guard
new seat different pattern on it any way
new hand guards very sleek
new clutch and brake reservoirs hooray no more leaks !
new head light cowl with ducts in it
new tiny screen
different shaped tank body work must = bigger tank
the exhaust under neath has totally changed and is now 2 seperate cans
no under tray where the exhaust have changed
the key slot for the seat release has changed and moved a little
new slimmer start switch like the 2010 shiver has
oh and it says traction control in the text.....more stuff to go wrong ?



where do I sign, I want one now.

The new Aprilia Dorsoduro 1200 2011 toes make one's debut today. The occasion is that of the inauguration of the new center of the Piaggio Group now in via Broletto 13 to Milan that has carried out to the presence of the President and General executive manager of the Group Roberto Colaninno. It has been moreover inaugurated the “Space Broletto 13 ″, store of the products of the Group. Not even Max Biaggi could not lack, leader of classifies iridata Superbike and man image of the Group. On Dorsoduro 1200 the new V90 Aprilia from 1200 cc, one unit characterized from the electronic system of injection toes make one's debut Laughs by Wire with triple mapping, cooled to liquid and with tree distribution double overhead, four valves for cylinder and Twin Spark. A modern motor and from the refined technology that it gives off values of power (130 CV to 8.700 turns and 115 the maximum brace of Nm to 7.200 turns) that they mark the absolute supremacy in the category, in tightening the more normative respect of anti-pollution. The refraining system previews the radial pliers to 4 pistoncini bound together to two discs from 320 milimeter to the front one while to the posterior one milimeter refrained from one Brembo clamp is a single disc from 240 to single pistoncino. The chassis is to mixed structure and joins a sturdy attice in steel to lateral slabs and telaietto reggisella in aluminum.

The staple, of derivation of the Dorsoduro 750 Factory is a Sachs from 43 milimeter to steles turned upside down with piedini fused in shell, adjustable in I precarico motivating force and in the hydraulic brake in jam and extension. The posterior shock-absorber to gas with separate tank Sachs, mounted laterally and infulcrato to the forcellone in aluminum with outline cantilever, are adjustable in precarico motivating force and in hydraulics or in jam or in extension. Dorsoduro 1200 is available also with ATC (Aprilia Traction Control) bound together to the ABS to two channels both independently disinseribili. Draft of a traction control that concurs to take advantage of to the maximum the power available and the grip of the tires being allowed us to enjoy in every condition the great divertimento guide this authentication “fun bike”. Increased the serbatorio regarding the 750 hour from 15 liters comprised the reservoir

http://www.motorcyclenews.com/MCN/News/newsresults/New-bikes/2010/September/sep1410-dorsoduro-1200-official-image/

Aprilia has released a single image of the new Dorsoduro 1200 – a big supermoto-style bike it will show in finished form at the Cologne show in October.

MCN revealed the bike after an owners manual was leaked online in August but this official image was released following an unveiling at the Aprilia parent company Piaggio Group’s headquarters in Milan.

Technical information confirms what MCN has already revealed. The motor is an all-new 1200cc 90 degree V-twin which will produce 130bhp at 8700rpm and 85lb ft of torque at 7200rpm.

The bike will also get ABS as an option and the Aprilia Traction Control (ATC) from the Aprilia RSV4.

Aprilia will be launching a number of new models for next year with a new 180bhp Tuono V4 naked bike rumoured to be part of that plan too.

Expect to see this model launched in November as the world’s most powerful naked bike. This will also get ATC along with launch control and the option of ABS too.

MCN will bring more information in next week’s paper

personally, i think they have ruined it, i like my 750 better. i hate the belly pan, i dont want traction control, abs, launch control or any of that cack. i dont like the yellow shock or the round discs. i dont like that stupid wind screen and i dont like the hydraulic reservoirs. i hate the oil cooler and i hate the new engine casings. im sorry, but im really disappointed. what i like about my factory is the fact that it still has the racing supermoto pedigree combined with the comfort and speed of a normal road bike.

however....i bet with that new engine it will accelerate like an absolute animal!!

That belly pan will be a function of having the ABS. It will be interesting to see how it looks if the bike is going to be available without ABS

i dont like the yellow shock or the round discs.

Wavy discs are just cosmetic anyway, presumably they need the round discs cos they want something that works.

i dont like that stupid wind screen

It'll need something if it has 130BHp

and i dont like the hydraulic reservoirs.

They will be a function of having better master cylinders

i hate the oil cooler

That'll be cos the engine gets even hotter - you don't get all that extra power with no pain.

and i hate the new engine casings. im sorry, but im really disappointed. what i like about my factory is the fact that it still has the racing supermoto pedigree combined with the comfort and speed of a normal road bike.

Lovin' it. REALLY lo oil cooler on my Ducati S4RS Monster, never have had any dings to it in thousands of miles of riding both street and track, it sat out there undinged so far....It sat lower than the 1200DD appears to hang, so I wouldn't think there would be any problem with the DD oil cooler.

In the other pictures there is one with out the belly pan and thus no ABS, which means ABS must be an option which makes the traction control an option as it works along side the ABS.

Maybe 0% and some cans may sway people....not for a while though I'll bet.

If the larger powerplant actually puts out close to the claimed 130bhp (we all know how accurate that was with the Shiver and DD) it puts it right up there with the KTM Superdukes, Ducati 1100 Hypermotards/Monsters etc. So the price is certainly in that equivalent ballpark, whether anyone could justify the move up from the 750s just for more horsepower... it'll be interesting to see.

I'm glad I pulled the trigger on the 750 purchase this year. I was holding out for the bigger bore version of the Dorsoduro for much longer than I should have. With all the criticisms you would think that Aprilia would increase displacement (a given) and decrease weight to compete with the other products out there, but this new version looks to be a bit of a porker.

This is supposed to be their "supermoto for the street" model... isn't it?

Grug..... Have you ever heard of CRANKSHAFT horsepower and torque numbers. Those are the numbers Aprilia refers to, as do MOST manufacturers unless they specifically say Rear Wheel Horsepower. Believe it or not there is a good percentage of crankshast horsepower lost (friction) between the crank and the road.

09-15-2010, 01:49 PM
The only thing keep me from getting a DD 750 is the ridicules fuel tank capacity (12L some places they say even 11.5L) but now the 1200cc have a16L fuel tank, i really hope that they will sell the DD 750 in 2011 with the 16L fuel tank then i will get one (please Aprilia read this).

Aprilias claims for crank HP for both shiver and DD are still generous, some may say way off the mark.

I have, but the bikes appear to have one of the most significant discrepancies between claimed crankshaft figures and actual rear wheel output I've come across (normally you expect around a 15-17% drop, the Aprilias get hit by up around 22%).

09-15-2010, 06:39 PM
Just for comparison...

According to Sport Rider magazine the stock Dorsoduro gets to max 75.8 RWHP @ 9,250 RPM. They also state the Ducati Hypermotard (1100cc version) to have max 77.0 RWHP @ 7,500 RPM

Most all dynos will yield somewhat varying results. You can check out the exhaust manufacturers that have dyno charts for another reference... it's all relative.

I was worried that my 750 would feel anemic, but it actually seems to get faster/stronger every time I ride it :burnout:

The 1100 Hyper only makes 95hp + or - at the crank and like 78hp or so at the wheel. It's only advantage is the extra grunt (torque) from it's extra 350cc.
Now the SuperDuke - that's 1 sweet ride. 117hp at the crank.
The Tuono still got them beat.

The SuperDuke is an absolute blast, it was my first choice when it came time to upgrade my bike, but the higher price ruled it out for me. :( The Tuono I tried (a 2005 model) was just too much for me.

Well I just rode Duke690R and this things is the fastest street bike I ever road in the twisties. With less then 60BHP and less then 350lbs this bike makes things so easy to go fast. The funny thing is that it also feels safer to go fast on this bike. In other words drop 50 LBS from DD 750 and you got one hell of a bike. Owning the 05 Tuono with Full Akra system I can say that 130 BHP is way too much for street use. Will not make you go faster anywhere but the track!

My breathed on ZX12R has been dyno,ed 3 times ,twice on the same dyno a year apart and every time the RWBHP was different
176 on the first run
181 on the second
178 on the 3rd
so there must be many factors that affect the outcome
so working backwards that would make the quoted crank horsepower around 200bhp eek

Must say I love the look of the black model - the front on pic showing bike without that chubby ABS "belly pan" - some excellent styling features too, another beautiful Aprilia and I bet the motor will feel and sound incredible.

On the youtube vid (thanks Molicka) at 34 secs I noticed the riders arse is kicked out of the seat! I hope this isn't a sign of super rigid suspension components that pushed me away from the Shiver....

I was considering Ducati's Hypermotard for next year when I'm back driving again, but these recent pics of the new DD 1200 are making me rethink.......yip, I'll be going down the DD route.

I can't wait to hear one of them running, the 750 sounds sweet, even on standard cans.

I hope there will be some form of undertray on the 1200 seeing as it has 2 cans and not just the one stupid one.

thats the first time ive ever heard that, everyone who has seen my shiver loves it both riders and non-riders. any reason you dont like it or just doesnt appeal to you?

I missed this so.... First I enjoy the bike and have no big complaints other than the suspension. I dont much care for the way the seat looks, I think the two plastic pieces coming off the tank are a bit chunky and out of place(I like the shape of the tank though) and I dont care for the headlight. And..... I dont dig the gold.

The shiver is a bike that I see from some angles and I think damn that looks good! Then from other angles I think meh. It does get a lot of positive attention though.

OK so the bike looks good. and one bit that olooks lots better than teh 750 is the dash surround and headlight surround. On the 750 this looks unfinished.
And it looks like the headstock angle is adjustable as well, It look slike a concentric adjustment is their.

I was sitting on the 1200 on the Intermot show, the bikes (1200,750) are looking almost the same and you need to be very close to see which model is it.
The 1200 fuel tank in my opinion will fit perfectly in the 750 and will give you 3.5 to 4 litre more, the extra litres.

Initially I have read that the UK is getting white or black as colour options. It also said they will only be importing the bike WITH ABS and traction control.

Boo Aprilia, get this sorted! Would personally prefer it without, never had a bike with ABS or traction control and never felt like i needed it. Just seems like it would take some of the fun away.....

ABS is amazing. On the street it will permit a rider to decelerate in much less distance to a full stop than non-ABS....magic on wet or oily roads.
Have never had traction control.

Defently I will buy this bike, I love it. I have already sell the SMV750 and I am going for the 1200 straight.

The 750 does pretty much every thing I want to do on a bike, I really dont want the extra power, as if its their I would use it. This would either give me a lot of pain on the smal roads I use, or the cops would take my license away. The larger tank would be a good move though as I have to fil up every two½ days for commuting. But knowing Aprilia Prices it wil be way to much money to justify the extra range.
Oh and when are Aprilia going to realise yellow is the fastest colour fro a bike.
