Aprilia Dorsoduro 900? Any thoughts?

$10,999.00 MSRP http://www.apriliausa.com/motorcycle...o-750-abs.html
So we're not getting the Hyperstrada anymore in the US. How's the Dorsoduro stack up as a replacement?

Seems capable off-road...

Sweet looking bike, but that fuel tank capacity makes me sad. I suspect it'd be a great bike for commuting and weekend rides, but not much for longer adventures.

The HS isn't exactly well endowed in the tank dept. either.

I just realized I linked to the webpage for the Dorso 750

The MSRP is correct for the 900 though, I found that on a local dealership's site.


I really like the 3L TANK SIDEBAG KIT available for it. Wish I had something like that for the HS.

True, but 4.3 or whatever we have is about a small a tank as I'd want for longer trips. Rolling into Crater Lake NP after having the low fuel light on for roughly 70 miles was about as much range anxiety as I can handle :-)

That said, I'm sure the Dorsoduro would be a blast to ride.

Hehehe range anxiety. I like that. I would have pooped myself in your shoes.

The Dorsoduro is pretty nice on paper. Would love to hear some experiences from owners.

It was the most gentle I have ever been with the throttle.
