MCN Say. "Often forgotten Italian adventure bike is actually among the best of the breed!"
The ride quality and comfort from the semi-active suspension is class leading. especially when ridden two-up. Over bumps and imperfections it's almost alien like – it's that good and smooth. It's not all about the clever suspension either. the ABS is excellent. so is the traction control and changeable rider modes. and it's all wrapped in an excellent chassis with a powerful 125bhp V-twin at its heart. It might not be the best looking bike on the market but the ride quality is one of the best.
The semi-active suspension on the new Caponord is more advanced than any other system on the market. The Ducati and BMW systems only adjust compression and rebound on the move whereas the Aprilia system also changes preload. This isn't for ultimate performance but for comfort and ride quality. The end result is really impressive. amplified further with a pillion or luggage. bumps and imperfections almost disappear. It's a really impressive system. one of the best on the market. if not THE best. When you up the pace. the sporty handling is impressive. too. It's possibly not as sharp as Ducati's Multistrada. but still more than adequate with excellent ABS-assisted brakes and traction control.
The 90 degree 1197cc V-twin is very similar to the engine used in Aprilia's Dorsoduro. but refined and re-mapped to give more midrange performance. Maximum power is a quoted 125bhp @ 8500rpm and maximum torque is 85ftlb @ 6500rpm. There are three engine maps: Sport. which unleashes full power. Touring. which gives the rider full power but a softer response and Rain which limits power to 100bhp. Aprilia claims the new engine is 20% more fuel-efficient than the Dorsoduro motor.
This models comes with ABS. Active Suspension. Dynamic Damping. Traction Control. Cruise Control. Handguards and Panniers as standard. This Pre-Reg bike is Brand New with 21 months of Manufactures Warranty still to run. Making this a lot of bike for the money!
