    i edited the post can adjust with screw driver. i just saw it.

    FC now i running in i get from 14-17km/l.

    the different modes touring and rain dun really change much of the fc i feel, very minor.
    more of a safety kind of thing to me for new riders. in case they throttle too hard in sports mode.

    yes, kind of limits the fuel injection in ratio.

    S - Sports
    T - Touring
    R - Rain

    many jap bikes also got this system eg. hayabusa.

    bt if u fit an aftermarket pipe and power commander kind of overwrites this mapping, and will always fun on full power.

    hey guys, i'm new here. i'm a motard lover and i'm currently taking my license. still at 2b. i guess the only reason why i'm taking it is to get a motard. i'm 168cm, will i have any difficulties with motards? my friend lowered his suspension a lot to get comfortable with his bike, he's 160. honestly it looked quite ugly with a very low suspension. any tips and advise would be greatly appreciated. thanks (:

    are you taking 2b or 2a?

    currently 2b only have a few motards to choose from..
    namely: Husky 125SM, Derbi 125SM and Aprilia 125SM..
    unless you are talking abt converting..

    for 2A, there are more choices..

    IMO, 168 is already a average height..
    you can always try on the show room bikes for a initial feel..

    you may wanna continue the discussion at DRZ thread..
    your post is off topic already as this thread is for discussion for Dorsoduro..

    IIRC, it does comes with pillion foot rest..

    most official or studio photos does not comes with it to make the bike looks fierce..

    how would this bike compare with a ducati hypermotard 796? in terms of pricing in singapore, fuel consumption, handling and maintenance. let's just drool all over the pictures for now.

    Default Aprilia Dorsoduro 750

    I saw the one @ mah motors. it's really a work of art I tell u...
    actually, we all kinda know a ducati's engine and the quality it comes with. somemore there's the ohlins for the suspension. it seems literally stock!
    so this brings the issue of the the dos'duro ride quality pertaining and maybe in s'pore sense, availability of parts. but when I sat on it (dos'duro), man! it felt good ) feels like the a motard with touring seats... or maybe I have a small ass...!

    test rode the factory version.. sports mode really rocks..
    it's big and beefy, but once you twist the throttle, it feels light..

    for now, i only can dream about it..

    my intial thoughts,


    Rear looks futuristic, abit like the r1 '09 tail tho.

    even the side stand looks sexy! ahah
