Aprilia Dorsoduro 1200 Manual Leaked

Note to manufacturers . . . if you are planning to surprise the world when you unveil a new model, don’t release the owners’ manual on the Internet months in advance.  Whether deliberately or not, Aprilia has allowed the owners’ manual for the as-yet-unreleased Dorsoduro 1200 to be published on the internet with all of the new model’s details (see the specs below).  The big v-twin brother to the Dorsoduro 750, will be plenty fast if power is anywhere near the claimed 134.5 bhp at 9500 rpm.  Compare this to the 92 bhp put out by the current 750 (which is no slouch) and you get the general idea.  This isn’t going to be your typical big twin.  Output is more like Ducati output.

With slightly more relaxed steering, the Dorsoduro 1200 should be more stable than the 750, a necessity with the huge boost in power.  The bigger bike will also carry an additional 59 pounds in weight, unfortunately.  It may have Ducati power, but this will be a porkier  package than the typical one available from Bologna.
