Rejoice, two-wheel fans: Aprilia has decided to grace the land of the free with the delectable Dorsoduro 1200. According to the moto-obsessed crew over at Hell For Leather, the bike is coming our way next year and we can expect to see it in showrooms as soon as this Spring.
The bike gets underway courtesy of a water-cooled, 1200 cc, 130-horsepower twin-cylinder engine that, according to Aprilia, is a completely new design. With four-valves per cylinder, dual overhead cams and three throttle maps for varying riding conditions, the powerplant sounds like an engineer's wish list.
The whole party comes to a stop courtesy of twin 320 mm floating discs clamped by Brembo four-piston calipers. Throw in the traditional up-right riding position of the supermoto set and you've got a recipe for ridiculously powerful riding perfection. So far, there's no word on how much the Dorsoduro 1200 will set you back, but we're guessing that it won't be long before Aprilia drops the MSRP. Spring is right around the corner, after all.
