2012 Aprilia Dorsoduro ridden

Aprilia’s revised exotic Dorsoduro 1200 has lost weight, gained some Italian ponies and now has a three-way traction control as standard. If you thought the Supermoto scene was drying up you’d be wrong. Aprilia are seven times world supermoto champions, and the Dorsoduro has been a success story since its launch in 750 format back in 2008. It’s Aprilia’s third best-selling big...

the stupid tank!

My ideal bike is a big engined supermoto. I used to ride a Tiger 1050 and now have a KTM 640 supermoto. I love the look and the idea of the 1200 Dorsoduro, but will never buy one. Why? Because despite my being nearly 2 metres tall, and despite the bike having a very high seat, the oddly shaped tank means I can't get my legs comfortable; there are two large angular protuberances in the way on either side, just where my knees should be, that make it hideously unpleasant to ride. Sort this out, Aprilia, and you have at least one extra sale.

I know what you mean, I removed MV Agusta off my list for this exact reason. The best example of this problem is the B-King. Huge bike, no place for the knees to fit in the tank.

great bike but

Local dealer won't get in a demo and the one i've seen has a seat so tall only someone well over 6ft has a chance of getting their feet down. The 750 is huge fun but just lacks the torque to be use when lazy riding. NO denying the Aprilia is a superb bike but the tanks too small and as said the seats too high.
