This is a niche product and its update is never going to change this. But if you are into big supermotos, the Aprilia is well priced, has a high spec and rides with a spark of attitude. Through bends, the Dorsoduro inspires confidence. It’s not super-agile, but it is assured and when you add the safety nets of traction control as well as strong brakes backed up with ABS you can ride it pleasingly hard. The suspension has some adjustability, meaning you can dial out that rocking sensation you so often get on supermotos with their long travel suspension. Both the TC and ABS can be deactivated if you want to play the fool.
