    The RSV4 is a World Champion Again!

    Lorenzo Savadori and Aprilia lift the 2015 SSTK World Title thanks to the RSV4 RF!

    (Fellow RSV4 RF SuperStock racer Kevin Calia grabbed his first podium, while teammate Alessandro Andreozzi made a late race push to cement Aprilia's Constructors Championship as well!.)

    Magny-Cours (France), October 4, 2015 - This year, the RSV4 reiterates its pedigree of winning, even in SuperStock's limited mods allowed configuration. The last race of the Superstock 1000 FIM Cup gave Aprilia and Lorenzo Savadori a deserved championship victory after four first places and three podium finishes in eight events. The Aprilia "Team New M2" racer put on a cold and controlled race, avoiding unnecessary risks on a treacherous (semi wet) track and earning the championship by finishing the season 22 points ahead of his nearest rival.

    Thanks to the second place obtained today by Kevin Calia, Aprilia dominates among brands taking the Constructors' Title with 176 points: 34 ahead of BMW, with Ducati, Yamaha and Kawasaki rounding out the order.

    Lorenzo Salvadori: "Today I was focused exclusively on the objective. My tactic in the race was to try and get a good start to make strong the first few laps and try to shed the group. Halfway through the race I had decided that I would have to settle for a smart position. I'm really excited in being able to bring home this result that rewards the team, Aprilia Racing, all my sponsors and the mobile clinic of the great efforts they have made. I want to thank all of you very warmly. Thank you so much to all the people who supported me in this important season!"

    Kevin Calia: "It was a very fun race especially overtaking at the last corner of Raffaele, I also jumped the curb, it was fun and a bit risky but it was the last chance and I wanted to try it all costs. I am very happy with the final part of the season, since my results all year have steadily improved. Next year I hope to stay here with Aprilia and Team New M2 Racing to try to build on the foundation of what we have learned. I would like to thank New M2 Racing Team, Aprilia Racing, my sponsors and all my friends who follow me from home. "

    Aprilia RSV4 RF racer Alessandro Andreozzi also had an excellent performance. Despite late race trouble with his previously injured arm, he was able to battle bravely with Tamburini helping teammate Salvadori.

    Alessandro Andreozzi: "I did not start very well but luckily I managed to have a good race pace. The end of the race I had a problem with my arm and I could not force a finishing position ahead of Tamburini but I did manage to keep him behind me some laps. The team has really done a great job. I thank my team, Aprilia Racing and my sponsors who help me. "

    We are pleased to announce that starting in March 2014 the New 2015 Caponord 1200 ABS will be available in North America.

    Aprilia revolutionizes the street enduro segment, creating the perfect bike for travel, fun and day-to-day
    use. The new Caponord 1200 ABS takes advantage of the experience Aprilia has acquired in top level competition, making – once again – technology available to all.

    Safety, performance and comfort come together in a new balance, a new frontier destined to be the reference point, thanks in part to the introduction of “Aprilia Dynamic Damping”, the cutting-edge technology, semi-active suspension system covered by four exclusive patents.

    Really comfortable for both rider and passenger when touring fast and fun on highway or country roads, the Aprilia Caponord 1200 Travel Pack comes standard with a center stand and spacious color-coded panniers, not to mention the most complete and sophisticated electronic control system suite currently available: Aprilia Dynamic Damping (ADD).

    Aprilia Dynamic Damping (ADD) is the brand new dynamic semi-active suspension system developed by Aprilia, the reference point in motorcycling on a global level where technology, efficiency and reliability are concerned. To achieve maximum performance at any fork and shock absorber operating frequency, ADD uses a patented “comfort oriented” algorithm which combines the principles of the skyhook and acceleration driven damping algorithms. The system recognizes the riding phases (acceleration, throttle release, braking, and constant gas) and adjusts the basic fork and shock absorber settings which allows specific hydraulic calibration curves to be defined within the adjustment range.

    •  1200cc V-Twin 90°
    • Max power 125 HP at 8,250 rpm; max torque 84.6 lb-ft (114,8 Nm) at 6,800 rpm
    •  Ride-by-Wire system with three engine maps: Sport, Touring, Rain
    •  Two-channel ABS (can be disabled)
    •  ATC (Traction Control can be deactivated and with 3-level settings)
    •  Adjustable windshield
    •  Hand guards
    •  ADD (Aprilia Dynamic Damping)
    •  ACC (Aprilia Cruise Control)
    •  Shock absorber with built in piggy back, spring preload electrically adjustable to 4 predefined settings (rider only, rider and passenger, rider only with panniers, rider and passenger with panniers) or in automatic mode
    •  Full LCD instrument panel
    •  Side panniers color coded to match the body color (29 + 29 liters)
    • Center Stand
