Since it looks like the Rally Raid is not coming to America in the near future....Is it possible to get some of the parts...like hand grip covers...etc?

Good question. I currently have a Triumph Sprint St which is a good bike, but in my area has poor dealer support. I've been looking at the Caponord as a bike to provide more comfort for twoup and the ability to do some fireroad exploring. I've also considered the BMW GS Adventure but I don't like all the problems that are coming to light. 15k for a bike that needs a rear shock replacement after a few thousand miles, etc, etc. But I do really like the agressive styling of the Adventure. When I saw the Raid on the internet I thought "Score!" Sure wish Aprilia would change their mind and import the Rally Raid. Or at least provide Raid accessories as an option for a standard CN.

I agree, it would be nice if the bike was imported to the U.S. I know that the parts must be available....somewhere!! Now the project is finding a place to buy them.
I also looked at a BMW. Big bucks and I you do not plan on going to Africa...you could go with the money saved in the price between the two!

The last friday I went 'til Noale (Aprilia headquarter) to the best mechanic (I don't know if it's the best word: someone who adjusts bike) for the V-Twin Aprilia's bike. He make a wonderful work on my Capo, it's another bike now. So, I ask him if there will be the possibility to take Rally Raid accessories in a next future. He told me that after this summer Aprilia will commerce the bike and therefore the relative accessories. Lampz by Schwarz!
