The Aprilia Dorsoduro 1200 has been updated for 2012 with lightweight forged wheels, revised engine management software, slimmed-down bodywork and new graphics. While smoother throttle response and slimmer exhaust heat shields were both needed, it’s the new wheels that are going to make the biggest difference to the supermoto-style naked roadster. Shedding 5.07lbs over the previous items, the new forged wheels will improve acceleration, braking, ride and traction. No word on when we can expect the 2012 model Stateside or if our version will include traction control this year.
