Design: The Aprilia Dorsoduro 900 project places riding fun at the centre of its focus: for this reasonthe superstructures are reduced to the minimum indispensableas anything that is not essential for performance and maximum riding pleasure has been foregone. The technical elementson the other handplay a fundamental rolebecoming a fundamental part of the design. It is not just the hand guards on the handlebar and the number plate on the front that highlight the close bond with the racing world. The shape of the centre areathe one that most involves the rider during sporty ridingalso highlight the design created to achieve optimized and compact dimensions that allow the rider to find the right feeling straight away. Aprilia engineers achieved this result by designing a long and flat saddleclearly derived from the sports worldcapable of ensuring the most effective riding position at all times and allowing plenty of room for longitudinal movement. The tail is one of the most representative aesthetic aspects of the Dorsoduro: sleek and slenderit also houses the double exhausta solution that allows for excellent proportional symmetry and weight distribution. The frame and the cylinder head coverspainted redare yet another sporty feature. Gritty finish combines with the new graphics in the brand new Adrenalinic Silvercolour scheme.

New Electronic Management: Electronic engine management is now handled by the new and more powerful Marelli 7 SM ECUthe same hardware used on the V4 bikes from Noalethat dialogues with the new full Ride-by-wire electronic accelerator system
completely built into the throttle grip. This system allows even more accurate management of the fuel/air mixture and the injection throttle valve opening based on numerous parameters including engine speedgearbox positionair flow (in quantity and speed)throttle grip and temperaturewith great benefits in terms of smooth riding without opening/closing jerkscontainment of harmful emissions and fuel consumption. The engine isthereforealways able to distribute the ideal torque and provide the best accelerationall to the advantage of a satisfying and fun ride. The system also allows a weight reduction of 550 grams compared to the previous Ride-by-wire that equipped the Dorsoduro 750. The sophisticated electronic management also provides the possibility of changing the engine mappingradically changing the character of how the power it is capable of developing is unloaded onto the ground. The Sport setting provides an immediate and aggressive throttle response; the Touring logic provides a smoother responseideal for touring and daily usewhereas the Rain map reduces available power to about 70 HP and is therefore ideal in the event of difficult weather conditions or on slippery road surfaces. Mapping can also be changed at any timeeven on the flyby simply pressing the engine start button. Dorsoduro 900 introduces a new Aprilia traction control system with sensitivity adjustable to three levels (it can also be disabled) to limit rear wheel spin by acting on ignition and the injection throttle valves. The Dorsoduro 900's Aprilia Traction Control system is combined with a Continental two-channel ABS system with developed calibration in order not to take anything away from the sporty ride. The ABS feature can also be disabled. The new electrical system places the engine control and management systems in communication with the new colour TFT digital instrumentation. The compact unit with a 4.3-inch screen contains a wealth of information that is always highly legible thanks to its capacity of adapting the background and font colours based on the conditions detected by the light sensor. The information displayed includes: rev counterspeedometerselected gear indicatorcoolant temperatureselected engine map and clock. Using the practice MODE joystick on the new left hand electrical blockyou can navigate through the menu and scroll/adjust the following parameters: odometertraction control levelABS ON (only when not in movement)MENU (only when not in movement)Trip ATrip A timeTrip A maximum speedTrip A average speedTrip A average consumptionTrip BTrip B timeTrip B maximum speedTrip B average speedTrip B average consumptioninstantaneous consumptionKm ridden in reserve. One of the optional features is the AMP installation kitthe Aprilia multimedia platform that connects a smartphone to the vehicle to provide an exceptional quantity of information useful for the ride: the new instrumentation lets you view all the data related to incoming/current calls on the screenas well as information related to the use of an intercom or any audio files that you may be playing.

Revamped V-Twin: Starting from the 750 cc 90; V-twin engine basewell-known and popular because of its character and reliabilityAprilia developed a new 900 cc unit with the goal of obtaining more torque and response at low and medium rpms for a thrilling riding experience. The Aprilia V-twin was therefore revisited in numerous details to achieve this purpose.
The new engine capacity was obtained by increasing the stroke from 56.4 mm to 67.4 mm and leaving the bore unchanged (92 mm). By so doingmaximum power now peaks at 95.2 HP at 8750 rpmbut more important is the maximum torque value that goes from 82 Nm at 4500 rpm on the 750 cc V-twin to 90 Nm at 6500 rpm on the new 900 cc V-twina value that is truly at the top of its category. It should be noted thatdespite the fact that maximum torque peak for the new 900 cc V-twin is reached a higher rpmsthe torque curve is actually flatter and always higher than the 750 cc predecessor. This operation allowed for an increase in acceleration response and pick upall to the advantage of riding funwithout limiting the proverbial reliability of the powerplant in any wayshape or form. Although the architecture remains unchanged - 90 degree angle between the two cylindersas well as a timing system with four valves per cylinderdual overhead cam and liquid cooling - the new engine has undergone various changes: an important operation aimed at reducing friction was carried out on the pistonscompletely redesigned and now characterized by a special anti-friction feature on the mantlewhereas new pins have led to a lightening of the alternated parts in motion. The crankshaftalso newis balanced differently. New and more efficient semi-dry carter internal lubrication circuit reduces losses of power due to shaking and keeps consumption and temperature of the lubricant to a limitthereby eliminating the need for an oil radiator. The engine also uses new injectors: improved fuel/air mixture spray achieved through the increase of fuel pressure benefits consumption and emissionsthereby contributing to the engine's compliance with the limits established by the Euro 4 emissions standard. This result is also achieved thanks to the exhaust systemfitted with a double oxygen sensor. The Aprilia Dorsoduro 900 engine is also fitted with an automatic decompresser which makes it easier to start in low temperature conditions. The load on the clutch lever has decreased by 15%all to the advantage of comfort with a clutch that has been completely revamped in all of its componentswhereas the primary drive reduction ratio has been changed to optimize exploitation of the available power. Aprilia Dorsoduro 900 is also available in a limited-power 35 kW versionideal for newly licensed riders.


Chassis: All Aprilia bikes have always been considered a point of reference for their excellent chassis architecture. The Dorsoduro 900 chassis provides high characteristics of efficiencybalancea tight ride and precision even in extreme track ridingbut at the same time it is easy and intuitive for daily use. These qualities are the merit of the particular layout of its various elements. The frame takes advantage of the know-how Aprilia has developed in racing competitionsdrawing deeply from the experience gained on the mixed structures used in the Supermoto world championship. The trellis upper part in steel tubing (now painted redlike the saddle support frame) is combined with wide spread aluminium lateral plates using specialhigh-resistance bolts. The result is an extremely rigid and lightweight structurethe best solution for taking full advantage of the revamped capacity of the 900 cc V-twinwith an aesthetic impact that communicates light weightextremely high technical content and Italian style. Another strongly distinctive technical feature is the lateral and inclined positioning of the shock absorbera unit that is adjustable in spring preload and hydraulic rebound. This solution has created precious space for an optimum exhaust manifold layoutwithout having an impact on the length of the bike and without stressing the shock absorber thermally. The aluminium swingarm is sized to withstand the asymmetrical stress due to the lateral positioning of the shock absorber and it boasts the torsional stiffness and elasticity characteristics indispensable for precision at rest and the ride feeling in transitory stages. On the Dorsoduro 900 a new Kayaba fork makes its dbut (combined with forged aluminium steering yoke plates)450 grams lighteradjustable in spring preload and better capable of withstanding the stress of sport riding and absorbing bumps on the road surfaceproviding control in aggressive riding and greater comfort for those more relaxed rides. The overall improved performance of both the Dorsoduro 900 suspension systems is also due to the new pair of three-split-spoke wheelsmore than 2 kg lighter than those that equipped the Dorsoduro 750. Reducing the gyroscopic effect increases handling and accelerationas well as providing benefits for suspension performance because of the reduction of unsprung masses. The Dorsoduro 900's top shelf chassis structure is completed by a sport-derived braking system. The front end relies on radial 4-piston callipers and a pair of 320 mm steel floating discslightweight and capable of guaranteeing reduced braking distances and excellent modulability. The 240 mm rear disc is gripped by a single-piston calliper. Both the front and rear systems have metal braided brake lines derived from the aeronautic sectorwhich eliminate the annoying buffering effect of conventional lines and guarantee precision and resistance to force.
