2010 Aprilia Dorsoduro Factory revealed

The 2010 Aprilia Dorsoduro Factory gets carbonfibre parts, forged aluminium wheels, Brembo brakes, adjustable Sachs fork and no ABS...

Here are the first pics of the new Aprilia Dorsoduro Factory, which is still fitted with the earlier 750cc, 92bhp, 82Nm v-twin engine with ride-by-wire throttle control and three riding modes – sport, touring and rain – which let you customise the bike’s power delivery as needed. The steel tube trellis/aluminium beam frame also remains unchanged, though half of it is now painted red and looks better than ever before.

As you’d expect on an Aprilia with ‘Factory’ in its name, the Dorsoduro gets a lot of carbonfibre bits, adjustable 43mm Sachs fork, Brembo brakes with radial-mount callipers at the front and forged aluminium wheels. There’s also a new analog/digital dashboard with a computer-controlled self-diagnostic system. And since this is supposed to be a more ‘hard core’ machine, the Dorsoduro Factory doesn’t get ABS, so you can brake-slide it into turns like all those supermoto racers you see on television…

Aprilia is likely to announce details on availability and pricing for the 2010 Dorsoduro in the next one or two days, during the EICMA Show in Italy.
