The supermotard from Aprilia evolves

Dorsoduro 900 is a true thrill generator born out of Aprilia's solid tradition in this class.
A revamped twin-cylinder engine with 90 nm of torque combines with a bar-setting chassis architecture that enhances its distinctive characteristic as a bike that’s designed to have you grinning from ear to ear.

Full multimap ride-by-wire, traction control and ABS round out a technical package that wants for nothing.
Aprilia Dorsoduro takes fun seriously. Born out of an ingenious intuition by Aprilia, it’s been built with the sole objective of providing the most thrills you can have on the road, drawing from the best characteristics of sport bikes and supermotards.

More V-twin power

The Dorsoduro’s 896.1cc engine capacity was obtained by increasing the stroke from 56.4 mm to 67.4 mm and leaving the bore unchanged at 92 mm. By doing this, maximum power now peaks at 95.2 hp at 8,750 rpm, but more important is the maximum torque figure of 90 Nm at 6,500 rpm - a value that is truly at the top of its category. 

Under new management

Electronic engine management is handled by the powerful Marelli 7 SM ECU, the same hardware used on Aprilia V4s, that dialogues with the new full ride-by-wire  throttle system. 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 throttle valves. The new electrical system places the engine control and management systems in communication with the new colour TFT digital instrumentation.

Better handling and control

The frame takes advantage of the know-how Aprilia has developed in racing competitions. The upper steel tube trellis frame (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. 

The perfect balance of form & function

The Aprilia Dorsoduro 900 project places riding fun at the centre of its focus. For this reason anything non-essential for performance and maximum riding pleasure doesn’t get a look in. The technical elements, on the other hand, play a fundamental role, and are integral to the design.
