View Full Version : New capo rider from gemany

My name is Andy, I am 55 years old and from Germany and drive my Caponord TP since July 2013. I have the white version and am very happy with it.
Had before the Caponord an Aprilia Tuono V4R, a beast ..... I would like to be 56 years old, the Caponord was the right choice.
I have 3000 kilometers (1900 miles) down and have been made ​​following experience with the bike:

Under the cockpit is a cable that is suitable for connecting the tomtom rider docking station. I'm still looking for a suitable bracket to mount the tomtom on the display.

Had the problem were the 5 screws on the sprocket loose three weeks ago.
Glue with medium strength Loctite is the solution.
On consumption Aprilia has yet to rectify, was in the Vosges / France at the weekend. A Multistrada that there was less need 1.5 liters per 100 kilometers.

Here in Germany there are new parts for the Caponord, http://neu.hepco-becker.de/Web/index.php

The Aprilia accessories catalogue lists a GPS mount, no picture unfortunately. When I googled it I did find an image - it is mounted between the two screen pillars.
I ordered the mount with the bike back in April, I still don't have it!!! A supplier issue apparently. I ring Piaggio every couple of weeks to chase it up. It's always pleasant to talk to Shelley even if she can't really do much.

Thanks for the welcome, guys
@ Chris Hall
I know the problem with the Aprilia support, in Germany it is not better.
In four weeks, no answer to the GPS connection, I speak a little Italian, in Italy the hotline could not help myself also. Then I have the problem solved itself.
@ Mr Pope
Rather small but nice, who wants to ride a BMW GS and can not find his own motorcycle in the parking lot.
@ Stef.
Augsburg is just once an hour's drive away from me, I live near Stuttgart.
