This is exactly what Yamaha did to me!

According to Aprilia's Australian boss, they will launch two adv bikes, plus a 1200 Shiver and 1200 Dorsoduro at the Milan show in November. The smaller adv bike will have a 21" front hoop.

Seems like the smaller bike will target the 800GS, and the larger the 1200GS.

Reasonable plan; I always hear good things about that 750 vtwin, and it's not like the Capo is a bad bike either.

Yea sounds cool but they aren't coming to the U.S. At least they are saying they aren't coming here yet. But I wouldn't count on them changing their minds.

Don't want to steal the thread but..
Any word on 1200cc version's power?

I've seen/heard guesstimates from 125 to 135hp, and some even suggest
it should be more powerful then the 1000cc Tuono, with which I don't agree
since it's the RSV engine in it.. and I'm sure the 1200cc is gonna be a bit
more basic design.

Even just 10-15hp more then the 750 would still make it move a lot
faster considering the huge torque gain the bigger displacement is
going to make.

Think Bandit 650 vs Bandit 1250 - just 12hp between them!

On an ADV and especially for gauging fun factor, you should compare torque output instead of HP figures... if you can find it listed.

Yeah, I'm aware of that, that's why I mentioned that torque is sure to
be huge, and probably comparable to every other 1200cc bike, but the
power can be anything from 100 to 150hp, and that makes a big difference.

and.... the weight of the machine:. hight torque + low weight = GOOD STUFF, BIG FUN!!!

Only a simple thing.... with AOTR (Apriliaontheroad.com) we go to Noale (in the factory..) 2 or 3 times every year,to see, maquette, picture and talk about engines & new model how will be...
So no shit as you think!
