In 2010, the Aprilia Dorsoduro family got bigger with the introduction of the all-new Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 Factory. Derived from the standard model , the Factory gets all the premium components that Aprilia could think of – meaning fully-adjustable Sachs suspension, Brembo brakes, a gel seat and carbon fiber fairings, just to mention a few.

There’s no word on US availability yet, but considering its €9,990 tag price in Europe as well as the standard model’s $9,599 MSRP in the US, don’t expect it to be cheap.

Italian manufacturers are great when it comes to supermoto rides and Aprilia is definitely an uncontestable competitor for the best possible place on the podium and on the market.

Using the same successful recipe used when creating the SXVs , they went ahead of the competition and built the Dorsoduro 750, a middleweight that is claimed to bring a new kind of excitement on the streets and on the track.

Until recent years, Aprilia has been producing the Mana 850 as an entirely naked bike, but the Italian manufacturer also entered the sport-touring category with the Mana 850 GT ABS. At its base, the bike remains the same all-rounder with nothing more than a half-fairing and an adjustable windscreen, but it is claimed to be the result of a completely new concept of motorcycle and that definitely raises a few question marks.

The dream machine of every single teenager that wishes either to get into motorcycle racing or simply have a lot of fun on a bike that is build to fulfill his needs has one name only: Aprilia RS 125.

This 125cc two-stroke sports Italian bike can be ordered at select U.S. Aprilia dealerships since last year for a manufacturer’s retail price of no more than $5,5K and the 2010 model year turns into a veritable Max Biaggi replica thanks to the cool new color scheme. So if you see one of these beauties being revved next to you at a traffic light, the guy sitting on it might very well be the same one that challenged you yesterday with the Civic.

Aprilia initially thought at the RSV4 R superbike as to an affordable version of the RSV4 Factory and ended up calling it “the world’s most exclusive motorcycle.” While we cannot agree with the Italian motorcycle manufacturer on that matter as their Factory model is obviously the uncompromising and much more expensive motorcycle (which is precisely what makes it exclusive), we do like the fact that performance figures haven’t been reduced and they still managed to offer it for a $16K price tag.

When hearing the words Italian supersports motorcycle, most people think at the Ducati Desmosedici RR, but the Aprilia RSV4 Factory is a new bike with its own plan for success. Resuming, it is powered by a 1000cc V-four engine developing 180 horsepower and 115 Nm, while weighing in at 394.6 lbs dry.

We do thrust Italians when it comes to engine performance and weight reduction although style is what makes their rides stand out immediately and the RSV4 Factory makes no exception. So this is pretty much an exotic superbike with the performance to match its looks. Read more after the jump.

Italian motorcycle magazine Motociclismo has just revealed a sketch that they’ve put together as a result of rumors about Aprilia planning to launch a big-bore adventure tourer. Called the Aprilia Tuareg, the motorcycle would be a 1200cc adventure-sports one, which positions it up against BMW’s recently disputed king, the R1200GS and rivals Yamaha XT1200Z Super Ténéré and Ducati Multistrada .

With that being taken into consideration, Aprilia would really have to get the most out of the 1200cc V-twin engine suppose to power their future desert bike, while also keeping it under the 200kg (440lbs) weight limit imposed by the desire for competitiveness.

As this rendering reveals, the dual-purpose bike will come with a 21-inch front wheel, while a street version featuring a 19-inch one isn’t out of the equation either.

We will come back on this subject as soon as more details are available.

We know that dogs love sticking their heads out of car windows when being taken along for the ride, but here is a rather rare case that pleasantly surprises us. Not only this lovely little mutt enjoys its central position on the Aprilia RSV1000R Factory, but it actually loves wheelies and the camera really. See it for yourself in the attached video.

Aprilia has just revealed their 2010 WSBK RSV4 motorcycle, which gets the Alitalia livery. Sponsored by the Italian airline company and with the riding skills of Max Biaggi and Leon Camier, Aprilia team hopes for a great racing season.

As much as we’d like the absolutely superb tricolore paint scheme, all we will think about right after repositioning our jaws is that V4 engine capable to power the Italian superbike up to speeds in excess of 200 mph.

You really can’t compare a woman’s beauty with that of a motorcycle, but when we saw the pictures of the Aprilia RSV4 and Klara, we thought it’s at least worth giving it a try. The first has a strong heart of 180 beats at 12,500 rpm, it was born in 2009 and benefits of no less than 115 Nm of torque. The second measures 83-60-90, 5.7ft and it is 19 years old.

Yes, that’s an awful comparison indeed, but we’re happy to see we cannot say the same thing about these pictures showing both “characters” together. Enjoy!
