When the Aprilia Dorsoduro Factory was originally released at EICMA back in November, all we got was four studio photos. Now, we get to see it moving. As far as Factory Aprilia's go, the Dorsoduro is relatively tame, gaining only carbon bodywork, fully-adjustable Sachs forks, a fully-adjustable remote-reservoir shock and four-piston radial Brembo brakes. All that manages to shed a kilo from the dry weight (now 185kg) meaning the Dorsoduro is still relatively porky compared to the now-lighter 172kg (dry) Ducati Hypermotard 1100 Evo. At 92bhp and 60lb/ft of torque, the Dorsoduro is 3bhp and 15lb/ft down on the Duc too.  >
