Can you ride the Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 on an A2 licence?
Yes, you can ride the Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 (2008 onwards) on an A2 motorbike licence. However, you will need to fit a restrictor kit to reduce its power output and make it A2 licence compliant!
Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 (2008 onwards)
The Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 falls into the category of large V-Twin supermoto bikes and it is a direct competitor to Ducati’s Hypermotard and KTM’s 990 Supermoto. Compared to these two, the Aprilia comes with one big advantage and it is its lower price tag.
The bike is super-fast, it offers insane amounts of torque and very good acceleration. It is one of the most powerful A2-friendly motorcycles on the market.
If you are looking for an easy-to-handle lightweight bike, the Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 might not be the best choice for you, as it weighs almost 200 kg. There are better beginner-friendly bikes in the supermoto category such as the Suzuki DRZ400SM, which doesn’t need restriction.
But, if you would like to own a good looking A2 bike that is suitable for tall riders and don’t mind having it restricted, the Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 is a great all around motorcycle!
