Aprilia SMV750 DorsoduroTue, 06 Jan 2009
After gaining experience from GP and supermotard circuits, Aprilia has designed and produced the Aprilia SMV750 Dorsoduro. Named after an area of Venice, the Dorsoduro utilizes a derivative of Apriliaís 92 hp 750cc liquid-cooled engine with a second generation ride-by-wire control system.
With the US debut of the mid-size SMV750 Dorsoduro, the Italian manufacturer now offers American riding enthusiasts a lightweight, high-performance V-Twin streetbike that combinesall the benefits of supermoto styling and riding position with precision handling and race-bred technology.
With five Supermoto World Championships in the record books, Aprilia knows a thing or two about what it takes to make a winner. If the Ducati Hypermotard woke up in the middle of the night from a cold sweat recently, it has the Dorsoduro to thank.
