Aprilia SMV750 Dorsoduro
2009 Supermoto looks Super fun
After gaining experience from GP and supermotard circuits, Aprilia has designed and produced the Aprilia SMV750 Dorsoduro. Named after an area of Venice, the Dorsoduro utilizes a derivative of Aprilia’s 92 hp 750cc liquid-cooled engine with a second generation ride-by-wire control system.

With five Supermoto World Championships in the record books, Aprilia knows a thing or two about what it takes to make a winner. If the Ducati Hypermotard woke up in the middle of the night from a cold sweat recently, it has the Dorsoduro to thank.
