Oh Yeah !! Black DD 1200 ordered today!:banana: Expect it end of March~ begin April.:peace:
Price TBD sometime in between.
With the direction of the Euro recently.... Greece, Ireland, soon Portugal and YIKES, Spain next, might have a very favorable exchange rate by then.

Very cool, I'm surprised no one in Europe hasn't already posted they got one since I hear they are already available.

Has anybody actually managed to blag a test ride on the 1200 yet? Would be interesting to see how much better the 1200 is over the 750.

Have put just under 8,000 miles so far as I prefer it most for tight twisty road riding---of which, there is not much in north Texas, so I get away twice a year to locations that are (for me) most suitable for it; the mountains of Colorado, and the Smoky Mountains around Deals Gap, North Carolina.

Good price. Only a grand over the CB1000. Now have you checked insurance?
Doubt it's listed in the US book yet though.

You aint riding in the right spots.

I'm keeping my eye out on this bike but I hate paying for stuff so far in advance.

My dealer and I are on good terms; no money changed hands on my end; not until delivery.

Went to my local dealer today (Honda,Yamaha and oh yeah aprilia) to ask if/when they would be getting a DD 1200 and the sales guy gave me a puzzled look and said "I've never heard of a Dorsoo..... dorso what?"
Surprisingly it turns out they actually were placing the order for a white one today, so that was good news for me since I had figured they wouldn't get one in stock unless you ordered one. I find it funny how even the guy in sales doesn't even know what models aprilia makes.

Got a price today on the 1200 ordered. $11,999

Using todays conversion rates that is GBP 7,695. Although we can only buy the bike with ABS and traction control in the UK, so as a comparison the Dorsoduro 1200 with ABS and traction on sale in the UK now at 9,799 is $15,278 in good old USA currency.

Is the price difference between the ABS and traction equipped bike really that much ! Can anyone in a country where they sell both versions confirm the price differences !

What you need to do is come over to the U.S. to buy one, take it to some great riding locations here; then ship it back home. Even after airfare, insurance, shipping and customs, you would probably spend less than buying it from your local dealer. If you could figure out a way to ship back 1,000 or so gallons of fuel, you'd be set for a long time.

Of course, on both sides of the Atlantic, politicians and banksters are racing to see who can devalue their respective currencies the fastest.

Do you still have your 750? Hope we'll be seeing some videos of this baby upon it's arrival!
