Aprilia is most known for its white-knuckling V-4-powered sportbikes, but one of the other stablemates that still offers rip-roaring good times is the Dorsoduro 900. When the 2018 model was announced, the manufacturer had taken the predecessor’s 750cc 90-degree V-twin and increased the stroke from 56.4mm to 67.4mm to develop the supermoto’s currently equipped 896cc unit. Not only does this configuration focus on torque and responsiveness in the low to midrange, but power delivered is a claimed 95.2 hp at 8,750 rpm and 66.4 pound-feet at 6,500 rpm. The Dorsoduro’s maneuverability makes it easily rideable for novices or shredders to enjoy.
