Aprilia is pleased to present their new bike: Aprilia Dorsoduro 900 – bike with advanced technical solutions. It is developed with one goal and that is to provide a ton of fun. Achieving that by combining the best features of a sports motorcycle and supermotard.
Dorsoduro 900 is born out of Aprilia’s solid tradition in this motorcycle segment and it is a true thrill generator.
But also the big role in this innovation plays the design of the Italian motorcycle when it comes to the fun part, because the development team has invested a lot of effort to the structure to a minimum.
The Aprilia Dorsoduro 900 – bike with advanced technical solutions, is agile with advanced technical solutions drawn from the characteristics of a sports bike as well as a motard.
The base is a steel trellis frame, in combination with aluminum plates. This is directly inspired by the technology company’s work in the world supermoto championship.
The striking feature of this model is the position of the damper, which leaves a valuable space for optimum layout of the exhaust system.
A shock absorber which is adapted to withstand uneven pressure is connected to the aluminum swingarm.
The upper part of the frame is connected with aluminum plates via screws exceptional. But the final result is extremely stiff with easy structure, suitable to make the best of V-twin agragata volume of 900 cubic meters.
