Judging by the 60% increase in displacement and the revised compression ratio; I'm guessing just under 140 crank horses.

I like the Dorsoduro a lot and in fact it will be my next bike however this one just looks weird.

ABS with the tone ring on the front rotor???

I'd say get rid of the ABS all together to save some weight.


I made a 'Factory' version of it see what it could look like. I still don't know about it. The bike still gives me that 'Adventurer' feeling and not a sporty one like it's little 750 brother.

Here goes nothing.....

I just read a blurb in Cycle World that the 1200-cc engine suppose to put out around 135-HP and 80-something LBFT of torque.

Lose the seat strap, add some Ohlins and forged OZ's and it's perfect!

seat strap is 2 easy bolts.....forged wheels from any other late model Aprilia bolt right on 100%

The 1200 weighs 467lbs dry? Jesus....Whole lot of Rosie comes to mind.
12:1 compression ratio for the US version?

2.9 gallon tank on the 750. What's the tank range?

Probably 70mi between fill up's. Maybe Californi Cycle works will make a 6 gallong tank like they did for the Hypermotard.

Hmmm I might stick with the Shiv for a while and just make the extra cc noises:p:.

So, is it a better bike than my Touno? Probably not. So just what is the upside to havinf a 500 lb fake motard?

Different strokes for different folks.

If Aprilia had offered the Gen 1 Tuono with the Gen 2 Rotax V60, I would have snatched one up. The Gen 2 Tuono just never stirred me.

To me the Dorsoduros are more slimmed down UJM than bloated hypermotards.

Yeah, what a pig. They took a stock (except for tires) DD750 and placed 5th OVERALL contenders (you know some special prepared single purpose) in the Pikes Peak hillclimb a couple of years back....

I think this article has just "effectively cinched it" for me.
Tor Sagen has addressed all my concerns with this platform/diplacement in the 1200 package. I will kick myself if they do the Factory next year. Oh well, maybe Ape will sell me a CF tank and bits, I'll come by the rest.

http://www.motorcycle.com/manufacturer/aprilia/2011-aprilia-dorsoduro-1200-review-90111.html

Key things like his discussion/impressions on the maps/traction control, wideness of the tank, it begging him to ride his comfort zone "foot out", the fullness and richness of the V that the 750 lacks, wheeling at will, fun, fun, fun.
All you that fear "heavy" bikes, I like how he just says that it doesn't feel or act heavy. I've ridden bikes that I would swear weighed 100lbs. more than they do and those that you couldn't convince me without a scale that they were as heavy as they are. Throw a leg over it and thrash it good, if it's a pig, it'll squeal! I'm gonna order one of these. We save a couple of grand compared to our pals across the pond. Is Australia getting these, or have they already? I wonder how their pricing is?
