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.
