    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.

    CAPONORD 1200 ABS TRAVEL PACK MAIN FEATURES:
    •  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
