Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the Aprilia Dorsoduro 1200 is coming to North America.


YET!!!

What's it cost to certify a bike for the US market? A million bucks?

Be thankful that Uncle Sugar is keeping us safe!!

Love this motor, 1200 cc 90 degree V-Twin. Hope they fit it in to something that can Sport-Tour (and not one of those psuedo trail bikes) Something with a 32 inch seat and capabilities like the fantastic but discontinued Futura. Right now there is a big hole in the market for something like this.

Well, there is the 1200cc 90-degree Multistrada. And the Triumph Sprint. Anyway, I think you're right, and I'm sure Aprilia will deliver eventually.
