It is now official! The 2009 Aprilia SMV 750 Dorsoduro will line up to the SXV550 and conquer together the American market. We wouldn’t conceive otherwise as ever since Dorsoduro’s presentation, the US public went nuts.
And if you wonder why, the answer is hidden in the Aprilia’s self-developed 750cc liquid-cooled V-Twin engine that is capable of 92-horsepower. Now that’s more than decent for a twin-cylinder engine and the bike has no problems in going against the Ducati Hypermotard which’s engine displaces 1100ccs.
Looking like that and being backed up by 43mm inverted forks holding wave-shaped disc brakes clamped by radial calipers, the Dorsoduro simply invites riders to have an aggressive attitude towards it.
Press release after the jump.
