DORSODURO 900
THRILL GENERATOR

Dorsoduro 900 is born out of Aprilia's solid tradition in this motorcycle segment and it is a true thrill generator. A revamped twin-cylinder with 90 nm of torque combined with bar-setting chassis architecture enhances its distinctive characteristic as a fun bike. Full multimap ride-by-wire, traction control and abs round out a technical package par excellence. Aprilia Dorsoduro is the fun bike par excellence. Born out of an ingenious intuition by Aprilia, it was built with the sole objective of providing the most possible road riding fun, drawing from the best characteristics of sport bikes and supermotards.

Technology

Better performance from the revamped V-twin engine

The new engine capacity was obtained by increasing the stroke from 56.4 mm to 67.4 mm and leaving the bore unchanged (92 mm). By so doing, maximum power now peaks at 95.2 HP at 8,750 rpm, but more important is the maximum torque value that goes from 82 Nm at 4,500 rpm on the 750 cc V-twin to 90 Nm at 6,500 rpm on the new 900 cc V-twin, a value that is truly at the top of its category.

Electronics

New electronic management

Electronic engine management is now handled by the new and more powerful Marelli 7 SM ECU, the same hardware used on the V4 bikes from Noale, that dialogues with the new full Ride-by-wire electronic accelerator system, completely built into the throttle grip. Dorsoduro 900 introduces a new Aprilia traction control system with sensitivity adjustable to three levels (it can also be disabled) to limit rear wheel spin by acting on ignition and the injection throttle valves. The new electrical system places the engine control and management systems in communication with the new colour TFT digital instrumentation.

Chassis

Chassis architecture: better handling and control

The frame takes advantage of the know-how Aprilia has developed in racing competitions. The trellis upper part in steel tubing (now painted red, like the saddle support frame) is combined with wide spread aluminium lateral plates using special, high-resistance bolts. The result is an extremely rigid and lightweight structure, the best solution for taking full advantage of the revamped capacity of the 900 cc V-twin, with an aesthetic impact that communicates light weight, extremely high technical content and Italian style.

Design

The design: balancing point between form and function

The Aprilia Dorsoduro 900 project places riding fun at the centre of its focus: for this reason, the superstructures are reduced to the minimum indispensable, as anything that is not essential for performance and maximum riding pleasure has been foregone. The technical elements, on the other hand, play a fundamental role, becoming a fundamental part of the design.
