Aprilia Dorsoduro 900 (2017 onwards)

The Aprilia Dorsoduro 900 is a newer and more powerful version of the Dorsoduro 750, which is one of the best A2-friendly supermoto bikes.

It comes with a large v-twin engine that is surprisingly smooth and responsive. The bike looks very aggressive and it is a lot of fun to ride. Unfortunately, the reliability is not that great compared to some other bikes in this category and the spare parts are very hard to find.

Nevertheless, if you are looking for a large and powerful supermoto, but don’t care about the service cost, the Aprilia Dorsoduro 900 might still be a good option for you.
