Any trip, anywhere…

Aprilia introduces a new version of the super technological Caponord 1200 that breaks down the confines of paved roads to become even more transversal and suitable for any trip

Introducing the new Aprilia Caponord 1200 Rally: more eclectic, more protective, more comfortable, super equipped. The high performance of the twin-cylinder is a perfect match for the exceptional chassis features typical of all Aprilia bikes as well as the technological contents such as ADD, the semi-active suspension system that automatically adapts calibration based on road surface and riding style

After introducing the Caponord 1200, the perfect crossover for any type of road use, at the top of its category for technical content and chassis quality, Aprilia introduces a version capable of pushing beyond the confines of paved roads, where travel turns into adventure. Introducing the Caponord 1200 Rally, a splendid representative of the global bike, suited for fun and long range touring and not only on asphalt, as well as daily mobility, of course.

The concept of a single bike for any type of road broadens. The new spoked wheels – with 19 inches on the front – that the Aprilia Caponord 1200 Rally mounts, shod with versatile tyres suited for any terrain, make any destination reachable, no matter what type of road surface you need to tackle. Making the Aprilia Caponord 1200 Rally even more versatile is the sophisticated ADD semi-active suspension system (covered by four patents), capable of detecting the rider’s riding style, the amount of cargo loaded and the road surface conditions to adapt the set up automatically and in real time. This is an exclusive patented by Aprilia and based on its extensive experience in the field of electronic solutions that the brand from Noale has gained by winning top level competitions like the Superbike championship where Aprilia has been crowned world champion five times in four years. The electronic control package for safety and riding comfort that comes standard on the Aprilia Caponord 1200 Rally is completed by traction control adjustable to 3 levels (that can also be disabled), Ride-by-wire multimap, cruise control and ABS (which can also be disabled).

The touring and adventure vocation of the new Aprilia flagship is emphasised by the spacious and rugged hard panniers that allow even a passenger to travel without making any sacrifices. The Rally is the “premium” version of the Caponord 1200 and it relies on standard equipment that is unparalleled in its segment, including the handguards, the oversized, height adjustable windshield, the ample side guards and the supplementary LED lights which complement the already powerful triple front headlight typical of the Aprilia style.

The 1197 twin-cylinder engine is at the top of its class for quality and full power output even at low rpms, the amount of torque output throughout the entire range of use and for its easily modified performance thanks to the triple mapping that the sophisticated electronic management allows, including (as with all new generation Aprilias) the electronic Ride-by-wire accelerator. More comfort, more protection and more riding pleasure are characteristics that imply uninterrupted travel, made possible by the excellent capacity of the 24 litre fuel tank, nestled in a sleek and easy to manage body, partially due to the overall weight of the Aprilia Caponord 1200 Rally, one of the lightest in its category.

The graphics are completely new, with brand new paintwork on the engine and frame that match three colour schemes for the superstructure: Giallo (Yellow) Dune, Verde (Green) Army and Grigio (Grey) Safari, all matte, with a wide variety of available accessories specifically designed and developed for this model – including the innovative AMP multimedia platform – that let you make your new Aprilia Caponord 1200 Rally even more personal and complete.
