2016 Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 ABS Review

2016 Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 ABS on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

To stand out. Always...

The Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 is equipped with the best braking technology currently available. The front brakes feature 4-piston radial calipers, state-of-the-art for the motard market. The light weight, 320 mm wave discs ensure shorter than ever stopping distances. The bikes aggressive stopping power is emphasized by the mean look of the braking system, in keeping with the Dorsoduros overall styling.

The rear brakes incorporate another wave disc, 240 mm in diameter this time, plus a single piston caliper. Both the front and rear brakes are fitted with aeronautical type metal braided brake lines to eliminate the sponginess associated with conventional rubber hoses and to deliver maximum braking precision.

A sophisticated two channel Continental ABS system provides maximum active safety on the Dorsoduro 750. The ABS controller is specially calibrated to make full use of the Dorsoduros impressive braking power and tire grip on dry surfaces. Riders can therefore still enjoy this amazing fun bike to the full.

Developed in close collaboration with Aprilia Racing, Dorsoduro 750 ABS was designed by taking the best features of sports bikes and supermotards, producing a perfect combination of performance, technology and fun. Power, lightness and agility, but also directionality, responsiveness and steering precision are therefore its main characteristics. Aprilia Dorsoduro ABS has components, technical features and finish of the highest quality which contribute to the uniqueness of the project. For the entire Dorsoduro 750 range, as the Shiver 750 range and the automatic Mana 850 from Aprilia, 35 kW powered-down versions are also available, in compliance with the criteria of the new A2 license.

A UNIQUE MOTORCYCLE WITH AN UNMISTAKABLE CHARACTER, DEVELOPED FROM APRILIA'S RACING EXPERIENCE WITH A SINGLE-MINDED GOAL: TO OFFER TOTAL RIDER ENJOYMENT. 92 HORSEPOWER AND EXCLUSIVE TRI MAP RIDE BY WIRE TECHNOLOGY IN A LIGHTWEIGHT, HIGH PERFORMANCE BIKE CREATED TO COMPLEMENT THE SKILLS OF EVEN THE MOST DARING RIDERS AND ALSO AVAILABLE WITH ABS.

APRILIA DORSODURO 750

Developed in collaboration with the Aprilia Racing Division - which has thirty-seven world championships under its belt - Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 has been created by fusing the best characteristics of a sports bike with the best that a racing super-motard has to offer. The result is the concentrated essence of performance and technology, a genuinely special, extreme and elite bike that can make any rider feel like a pro.

Light, agile and powerful, Dorsoduro 750 is powered by a latest generation engine and boasts the most advanced technology in its class. Through the use of state of art electronic engine management, Aprilia's compact 90° V-twin delivers blistering performance unmatched by any of its rivals, with an incredible specific power output of 122.6 hp/litre and a maximum torque of 82 Nm at just 4500 rpm.

True to Aprilia tradition, the chassis architecture is unparalleled in its class. After the acclaimed debut of the mixed trellis/aluminium frame on the ultra-specialised SXV, the application of the layout in the Dorsoduro establishes it a hallmark feature of Aprilia motards, offering levels of directional agility, reactivity and steering precision far beyond the reach of any rival.

The essentially designed Aprilia Dorsoduro boasts only the best in terms of componentry, technical specifications and finish. Four-piston radial callipers, wave discs, a hydraulic wet clutch, adjustable suspension front and rear, "Tri-Map" ride by wire and the Matrix instrument panel with on board computer all contribute to making the Dorsoduro a truly unique product.
The unique characteristics of the Aprilia 750 Dorsoduro in detail:

ENGINE
Numerous improvements have been made to the Aprilia 750 cc, 90 V twin engine, which now features mapping specially developed to bring out the Dorsoduros aggressive character.

Improvements have been made to various areas of the749.9 cc engine with its bore and stroke of 92 x 56.4 mm.As a result the electronic and mechanical content of thisV twin engine sets new standards not only for engines of this size but for many far larger units too.The electronic engine management on the Dorsoduro 750s engine leads the field in technology and performance. The Dorsoduro features a second generation electronic throttle with Tri-Map selectable triple mapping.

Three performance modes, Sport, Touring and Rain, can be selected from a switch on the handlebars (with the throttle closed for safety reasons). The Dorsoduro changes its character radically, depending on what mode you select. Sport modegives you aggressive instant power; Touringmode gives you a smoother action, better suited to relaxed long distance riding; and Rain mode gives you ultimate safety slippery surfaces. The Tri-Map electronic throttle also means smoother, more consistent power thanks to more accurate and precise throttle control based on parameters including engine speed, gear selection, air flow, throttle position and temperature.

Whatever mapping you select, the engine is always ready to deliver the best possible performance in terms of acceleration and rev range, giving you an amazingly satisfying and entertaining ride.

The exhaust is made entirely from stainless steel. The collector pipes meet in a single silencer under the seat before splitting again into two tail pipes. The large volume of the exhaust system also aids engine breathing and boosts efficiency.

Thanks to its advanced electronic and mechanical technology, the Aprilia V twin engine develops 92 HP at 8,750 rpm and a maximum torque of82 Nm at 4,500rpm. These figures enable the Dorsoduro to compete directly with motorcycles powered by far bigger engines.

The Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 is also available, right from its introduction, in a restricted25 kW version. The use of a ride-by-wire electronic throttle has allowed Aprilia to avoid cutting power right across the range, as happens with less advanced restricted versions. Instead, the power curve of the restricted Dorsoduro is identical to that of its full-power sister right up to the point where the permitted power limit is reached. The 25 kW Dorsoduro 750 therefore delivers far superior acceleration to the equivalent models of the competition, to the benefit of riding satisfaction and pleasure.

 

FRAME: PERFECT BALANCE
Aprilia motorcycles have always been acclaimed for the excellent chassis designs. The Dorsoduro 750is no exception, thanks to a chassis that makes it the best balanced and most effective bike of its type. The new Dorsoduro is easy and intuitive to ride despite its blistering performance. It is designed to be ridden at the limit under all conditions, to perform extreme power slides, and to blast out of bends under full power. The secret lies in an ultra-responsive chassis, whose ergonomics suit riders of all statures and allow you to take it to the limit and enjoy the thrills of a motorcycle built for pure entertainment.

The frame incorporates all of Aprilias vast racing experience, and makes full use of the latest mixed steel and aluminum designs derived from the world of Super motard World Championship racing. The top half of the frame is a tubular steel trellis. This is secured to generous aluminum side members by special high strength bolts. The resulting structure is extremely rigid and light weight, and provides the best possible means of harnessing the exuberant power of the Aprilia V90 engine while still communicating a strong impression of lightness, high technology and Italian style.

Continuous co-operation between engine and frame designers has led to the perfection of high-tech, performance-oriented solutions and to total integration between engine and frame. The intelligent design solutions applied to Aprilias V twin engine have made it shorter than ever, permitting the development of a rational and efficient frame and a superbly agile and incredibly responsive motorcycle.

The lateral position and acute angle of the rear monoshock has freed up the space needed to ensure optimum exhaust geometry without any increase in the bikes overall length, and without subjecting the monoshock to thermal stress. The aluminum swingarm is robust enough to withstand the asymmetric stresses generated by the lateral positioning of the rear suspension. The swingarm has been specially developed to satisfy the needs of a supermotard like the Dorsoduro 750, and combines excellent torsional rigidity with the elasticity needed for precision under acceleration and intuitive control under changing conditions.

 

 

SUSPENSION: ABSOLUTE EFFECTIVENESS
The optimal definition of suspension has always been the pride of Aprilia designers and the Aprilia test team. The 43 mm upside-down front fork with shell-cast feet has spring preload and hydraulic brake adjustable in extension. The lateral shock absorber with is directly hinged to the swingarm in a cantilever configuration and has adjustable spring preload and hydraulic return; the front and rear wheel travel is 160 mm, which is also in line with the superbike philosophy that requires effective and controlled but long stroke suspension. Both steering yokes are forged, the upper also anodised, as a demonstration of the excellent level of finish of the Dorsoduro.

BRAKES: RACING TECHNOLOGY
The 4-piston radial caliper front brake system represents the current state of the art for a bike of this segment. The 320 mm floating wave discs are lightweight, ensure shorter stopping distances and underline the aggressiveness of braking thanks an incisive cool look, in line with the overall style of the Dorsoduro 750 ABS. Also the 240 mm rear disc is “wave” and braked by a single piston caliper. Both the front and rear systems use braided metal aeronautical type hoses to ensure maximum performance, even under stress. A sophisticated two channel Continental ABS system increases the safety level of the bike. Its specific calibration lets you to take full advantage of the sporting character of the Dorsoduro 750.

 

DESIGN: STYLE AT THE SERVICE OF FUN
Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 ABS is a project that focuses on the rider, a slim and agile bike, in which each element is designed to achieve the maximum riding pleasure. Superstructures are kept to a minimum, the design of the central area highlights the compactness of the bike, while the tail, compact and curvy, includes the dual exhaust, to the benefit of correct weight distribution. The hand guards, derived from the Aprilia SXV Superbike, are sleek in style and effective in protecting the levers against accidental contact

DESIGN: STYLE AT THE SERVICE OF FUN

On the Aprilia Dorsoduro 750, the minimal and aggressively styled top structure frames the visually spectacular mechanicals, which become an integral part of the design. The Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 has been designed around the rider to create a radical, outrageously agile and sporty bike, in which every individual element is geared precisely for maximum riding pleasure. All outer bodywork has been pared down to the absolute bare minimum; just like on a racing bike, anything that is not essential for performance has been stripped away, while the front race number panel has been retained to emphasise the bike's close ties with the racing world.

The narrow mid section of the bike - the area that interacts most with the movements of the rider's body when riding hard - emphasises the extreme compactness of the bike. Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 is incredibly slender and agile, allowing the rider to feel immediately at one with the machine. After a few short metres, you already feel as if the bike is an extension of your body. This result has been achieved by Aprilia's engineers by designing a long, flat saddle - a configuration borrowed straight from racing - that allows the rider to assume the most effective riding position at all times and allows ample freedom of movement for tackling tight turns.
The compact, curvy tail fairing also envelops the dual exhaust: a solution that not only creates a really aggressive design feel, but also excellent symmetry in the proportions and weight distribution. The hand guards, derived from the Supermoto SXV, display a sleek style and effectively protect the levers against any accidental contact.

ENGINE: A STATE OF THE ART TWIN

Aprilia's 750 cc 90° V-twin has been extensively revised and now features new maps developed specifically to emphasise the fiery temperament of the Dorsoduro. This optimisation exercise has touched upon numerous aspects of the 749.9 cc engine (with bore and stroke of 92 and 56.4 mm respectively), and the resulting mechanical and electronic improvements make this twin cylinder engine a benchmark not only for its capacity class, but also for its larger engined rivals.

The advanced electronic engine management system establishes the Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 as the new benchmark in terms of both technology and performance. Dorsoduro features second generation electronic throttle control, with "Tri-Map" management.
Selectable directly by the rider from a handlebar mounted control, even with the bike in motion (but with a closed throttle - for greater safety), the three options - Sport, Touring and Rain - radically alter the character of the Dorsoduro, with aggressive, immediate response in Sport mode, gentler power delivery in Touring mode, which is ideal for everyday use, and extremely safe power delivery, tailored for poor grip conditions, in Rain mode.

The "Tri-Map" Ride by Wire electronic throttle also ensures more fluid, more uniform power delivery as throttle valve aperture is controlled with more precision. Throttle valve aperture is determined on the basis of a number of parameters, including engine speed, gear selected, air flow, throttle grip aperture angle and aperture rate, and temperature.

Whatever the map selected, engine torque delivery is optimised for the best possible performance during acceleration and pickup, resulting in an extraordinarily rewarding and fun riding experience.

The exhaust is made entirely from stainless steel, with manifolds converging into a single undersaddle silencer with twin tailpipes. The generous volume of the silencer lets the engine breathe freely for optimum performance.

The advanced electronic and engineering technology used allow Aprilia's twin cylinder engine to pump out 92 hp at 8750 rpm, and a maximum torque of 82 Nm at 4500 rpm: values that put the Dorsoduro in direct competition with bikes of a much higher engine capacity.

As soon as it hits the showrooms, the Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 is also available as a detuned version for newly qualified riders, with power limited to 25 kW (or 35 kW in Spain). Ride By Wire throttle management means that power does not have to be cut over the entire rev range, as occurs with less advanced bikes, so the power delivery is exactly the same as it is on the full-power version, up until the maximum power limit is reached. As a result, the Dorsoduro 750 offers better acceleration than the equivalent 25 kW versions of its rivals, for a much more rewarding riding experience.


CHASSIS: TOTAL BALANCE

Aprilia bikes have always been considered as the benchmark for chassis excellence. And true to tradition, Dorsoduro 750 is one of the most effective, best balanced bikes in its class. The new Dorsoduro is easy and intuitive to ride, yet still delivers mind-bending performance. This machine is designed to be ridden at the limit in any conditions, allowing the rider to turn on a dime and blast out of bends with the throttle wide open. This is made possible by the incredibly responsive chassis architecture, which has been designed with particular focus on ergonomics, allowing the Dorsoduro 750 to adapt perfectly to any rider and letting all users access the extreme potential of this pure fun machine in any situation.

The chassis exploits the most of the notable expertise acquired by Aprilia during competitions, fully drawing on the experience gained on the mixed structures used in the Supermoto world championship. The upper narrow tubular steel trellis section is connected to the generously sized lateral aluminium plates by special high strength bolts. The result is an extremely stiff, light structure and the best solution possible for reigning in the exuberant power of the Aprilia V90, with looks that conveys lightness, ultra-advanced technology and Italian style.

Ongoing collaboration between the powertrain engineers and the chassis engineers has produced optimised solutions in terms of technical content and performance, and resulted in mechanicals that are integrated perfectly into the frame. The architecture chosen for the Aprilia twin, which is optimised for longitudinal compactness, made it possible to create a rational, effective frame and, as a result, a bike that is incredibly agile and reactive.

The lateral and substantially raked position of the shock absorber freed up lots of precious space for an optimised exhaust manifold geometry without influencing the length of the bike or exposing the shock absorber itself to thermal stress. The aluminium swingarm is sized to support the asymmetric stress caused by the lateral positioning of the shock absorber. This component has been specifically conceived for the needs of a super-motard like the Dorsoduro 750 and responds ideally to requisites for torsional stiffness and elasticity, which are indispensable for precise wheel placement and to ensure communicative feedback in transitory conditions.

 

SUSPENSION: EFFECTIVE ON ALL SURFACES

Defining the optimum suspension configuration has always been a point of pride for Aprilia's engineers and test team. The 43 mm upside down fork, with shell-cast brackets supporting radial callipers, features adjustable spring preload and hydraulic rebound damping. This is a highly sophisticated unit offering class-leading progressiveness and generous wheel travel (160 mm), in keeping with the philosophy of the motard genre. Both steering yokes are forged elements, while the upper yoke is also anodised, confirming the outstanding level of finish on the Dorsoduro.

The lateral shock absorber is pivoted directly onto the swingarm in a cantilever layout, and features adjustable spring preload and hydraulic rebound damping; rear wheel travel is 160mm - this is also in keeping with the philosophy of the motard, which demands suspension that is effective and controlled, but also offers ample wheel travel.

 

BRAKES: RACING TECHNOLOGY

The Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 boasts the best braking technology available today. The front brake system, with 4-piston radial callipers, is the most advanced of its kind in its segment. The lightweight 320 mm floating wave discs ensure shorter stopping times, while their extreme looks, which are in perfect keeping with the overall style of the Dorsoduro, visually express the aggressive power of the braking system.

The 240mm rear disc is also of the "Wave" type and is braked via a single piston calliper. Both the front and rear systems have metal braided braking pipes, derived from the aeronautic sector, which eliminate the undesirable pressure fluctuations of conventional pipes and guarantee maximum braking accuracy.

On the Dorsoduro 750, safety is further enhanced by a sophisticated 2-channel Continental ABS system. This ABS system is specifically calibrated to let the rider fully exploit the power of the brakes and the grip of the tyres in the dry, so as not to detract from the immense fun of this bike.

COMPONENTS

Supermotards are essential by definition - sometimes even spartan. But this doesn't mean sacrificing class-leading content and painstaking attention to detail. Aprilia stands apart from its rivals by offering superlative standard equipment:

- Matrix instrument panel: the mixed type (analogue/digital), it receives all the information from the CAN line and becomes an integral and crucial part of the self-diagnosis system as it is fitted with memory. Particularly compact, with a modern design and considerably reduced weight. All the functions are commutable and easily accessed through a command on the handlebar. The LED lighting (white in the analogue area and red in the digital one) can be adjusted to three levels.
- Anodised aluminium tapered handlebar: It brings quite clearly to mind those of the competitive superbikes. An incredibly light component, designed to guarantee top dynamic control of the bike.
- Hydraulically operated clutch: it allows precise braking every time, along with smooth exemplary control and handy self-adjustment (without the need for any maintenance).
