I can't wait to hear your feedback about it. Are there factory models coming?

Ed -I'm torn between waiting for one of these or popping for an EVO SP. I'm hoping this unit wins... Looking forward to your review..

Sorry, no Factory models, the 1200 just comes in one trim level. White or black for the USA.

The USA never got the Dorso 750 Factory.

Hmm, Ive looked and looked and cant find any numbers for rear wheel HP for the DD12, its been out in Europe for a while, I would have thought one of the Italian exhaust makers would have some numbers listed by now. Aprilia quotes 130 crank ponies and around 82ft lbs, going by the fudged Aprilia quoted DD750 numbers I would assume around 106 and 70 at the wheel for the DD12. Considering its some 40 lbs heavier, I dont think its going to make for such a thrilling beast. It sounds about as potent as a 7 year old Suzuki SV1000 . The prospect of cams and a PCV for the DD750 bumping it to 85-90 ish HP sounds more interesting to me. jm2cents. Im eager to hear the results of a test ride and dyno chart.

How much are they out the door. I sold my 750 I want to get a new bike in 2-3 months summer is here can't ride after june.I want to stay with aprilia. If you can get the ecu cracked so we can tune the 750 I will buy a new 2011 750 in green.Just can't stand the low speed surges any more.If you can fix that they will put you up for the noble prize. love to hear what you think about the 1200 compaired to the 750

The white looks very powerful.

It is! Quick video below. The 1200 is an absolute TORQUE monster:devil:
In the video did a rolling run from about 25mph to 100mph. Took it about 6 1/2 seconds, but I did not exceed 8,000 RPM nor did I open the throttle fully in 1st gear.

Thats a bizzare decision by Aprilia on both models. Very strange.

I could be mistaken so dont hold me too it however if I remember correctly the biggest differences between DD Factory & regular were the seat, frame painting, and CF panels. Maybe the logic of customers being able to accessorize their own DD's into factorys killed off the necessity to make a run of US bound factories.

I think that the factory DD also got adjustable Sachs forks, an adjustable remote-reservoir shock and four-piston radial Brembo brakes.
