I don't like the colour, but the accessories (all from Hepco&Becker I think...) are very good.
What do you think about?

Actually I kind of like the colour, looks like a bit of a beast! Really wondering about the off road capabilities of the Capo though.

I like it....that green/olive matte color is coming on the new Moto Guzzi Stelvio and the Zero DS had it last year. Looks very military tough.

What a colour! I love it!

Is this bike accessorized by Aprilia or bike dealers?

I like it! Could have done with leaving the dorky 'Caponord' writing off of it. Makes the H&B crash bars look good.

I like the look. But I'd like to see it used off-road by someone who know what they are doing, to see how it really copes. ;)

When I first started looking at bikes in the 'adventure' category, I had dreams of dirt roads, gravel and sand. But then I found my Caponord and thought...not a chance. However I've been very curious to see what it's capable of, off the tarmac.

But when you look closely, the bike actually uses spokes rim rather than the sport rims from Aprilia. That's super nice. Wonder where they get the rims from.

I really like it. Is there any more info or a website on what was done to it?

Nice looking bike! Looks so much better in that colour than the limited choice we get in the UK. Don't even get black over here (at least I've never seen it available in UK)!

After looking tru at andydj31 post, i guess they're still using the sport rims...my eyes are playing trick on me... :p:

If they wanted a BMW lookalike, they should have just bought a BMW...

But, surely, everyone that rides an 'adventure' bike wants to be like Ewan & thingy.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6xorQyl121I

Not fussed on the green tbh, prefer the black & red one at a show in Milan:

Quite like the BMW look. Didnt like the way it rode on a test though. Plus they are as common as you know what.

As for colours, like the bike in white, black and would liek to see what one looks like in the same yellow my 750 Dorsoduro is painted in. Dont do red in any shape shade or amount. If I could I would even change the rear light lens colour I dislike red on a bike so much. Wierd I know, but a superstition thing.
