For some time now if you asked a biker what was the best all-rounder money could buy they'd probably plump for something like a Honda Crosstoruer or a BMW R1200GS.
Both are very good bikes but just occasionally laurels get rested on. Coming in on their blind side is the bike we take a look at here, Aprilia's Dorsoduro 1200 Supermoto. Trying to find something this bike does badly is no easy task.
Trying to design the ultimate bike for this traffic-clogged island isn't an easy task. It would have to be able to handle all sorts of road conditions, be mechanically tough yet able to take advantage of those times when the road opens up and presents a fun opportunity. Above all it needs to be fun and affordable. The new Aprilia Dorsoduro 1200 answers all these criteria.
Open your mind, give one a try and you might well be surprised.
