Dorsoduro 900, a dual purpose motorcycle from Aprilia comes as a replacement to the existing Dorsoduro 750.Sharing its mechanicals with the Shiver 900, it gets all three riding modes as its sibling. Sports mode provides aggressive response while Touring mode gives a milder response for every day touring. Rain mode helps easy ride through wet and slippery terrains on rainy days. Thanks to the adjustable three-way traction control. Again similar to the Shiver 900, this bike features an upgraded ride-by-wire technology.
The same 896cc BS-compliant V-twin engine has been fine tuned to produce better power and torque. Suspension duties are handled by light weight Kayaba upside down forks at the front and mono-shock suspension at the rear.
