Italian brand Aprilia gives the maxi-motard category a shake with the Dorsoduro 1200, building on the solid foundations of its previous 750.
The 2011 model is powered by a 90-degree V-Twin, and hands ultimate control to riders who can control the power output to their liking. Sport mode makes use of its full 130 horsepower, Touring too, but with a smoother delivery. Rain mode ensures a better ride when there's less traction to be found.
Radial four-piston Brembo brakes bring the bike to a stop and Sachs adjustable suspension is fitted front and rear.
