Aprilia has revised the Megamoto Dorsoduro for the 2012 model year. Overall, something lighter, the 1200cc Twin comes with a revised mapping and some interesting technical features.
The ride-by-wire engine management received a new setup with three mappings. You can choose between the modes “Rain”, “Touring” and “Sport”, each with customized power delivery.
Customers of the ABS version can draw on a revised, three-stage traction control (ATC). The assistance systems ABS and ATC can be combined freely and independently of the chosen engine mapping. Three levels of power fit to most road conditions.
Fine tuning has been done the fully adjustable Sachs suspension. To reduce the unsprung masses the three-spoke wheels are 2.3 kilograms lighter now.
The design up date bears a modified front fender, a lighter plate carrier and two new color schemes.
The video shows some impressions from the first test ride.
