To drive the vehicle it is necessary to be in
possession of all the requirements prescribed by law (driving licence, minimum
age, psychophysical ability, insurance,
state taxes, vehicle registration, number
plate, etc.).
Gradually get to know the vehicle by driving it first in areas with low traffic and/or private areas.
6
use and maintenance ETV mille Caponord
The use of medicins, alcohol and drugs or
psychotropic substances notably increases
the risk of accidents.
Be sure that you are in good psychophysical conditions and fit for driving and pay
particular attention to physical weariness
and drowsiness.
Most road accidents are caused by the
driver’s lack of experience.
NEVER lend the vehicle to beginners and,
in any case, make sure that the driver has
all the requirements for driving.
Rigorously observe all road signs and national and local road regulations.
Avoid abrupt movements that can be dangerous for yourself and other people (for
example: rearing up on the back wheel,
speeding, etc.), and give due consideration
to the road surface, visibility and other driving conditions.
Avoid obstacles that could damage the vehicle or make you lose control.
Avoid riding in the slipstream created by
preceding vehicles in order to increase
your speed.
Always drive with both hands on the handlebars and both feet on the footrests (or
on the rider’s footboards), in the correct
driving posture.
Avoid standing up or stretching your limbs
while driving.

OIL
The driver should pay attention and avoid
distractions caused by people, things and
movements (never smoke, eat, drink, read,
etc.) while driving.
8
use and maintenance ETV mille Caponord
COOLER
Use only the vehicle’s specific fuels and lubricants indicated in the “LUBRICANT
CHART”; check all oil, fuel and coolant levels regularly.
If the vehicle has been involved in an accident, make sure that no damage has occurred to the control levers, pipes, wires,
braking system and vital parts.
If necessary, have the vehicle inspected by
an aprilia Official Dealer who should carefully check the frame, handlebars, suspensions, safety parts and all the devices that
you cannot check by yourself.
Always remember to report any malfunction to the technicians to help them in their
work.
Never use the vehicle when the amount of
damage it has suffered endangers your
safety.
ONLY ORIGINALS
A12
345
Never change the position, inclination or
colour of: number plate, direction indicators, lights and horns.
Any modification of the vehicle will result in
the invalidity of the guarantee.
Any modification of the vehicle and/or the
removal of original components can compromise vehicle performance levels and
safety or even make it illegal.
We recommend respecting all regulations
and national and local provisions regarding
the equipment of the vehicle.
In particular, avoid all modifications that increase the vehicle’s performance levels or
alter its original characteristics.
Never race with other vehicles.
Avoid off-road driving.
#,/4().'
Before starting, always wear a correctly
fastened crash helmet. Make sure that it is
homologated, in good shape, of the right
size and that the visor is clean.
Wear protective clothing, preferably in light
and/or reflecting colours. In this way you
will make yourself more visible to the other
drivers, thus notably reducing the risk of
being knocked down, and you will be more
protected in case of fall.
This clothing should be very tight-fitting
and fastened at the wrists and ankles;
strings, belts and ties should not be hanging loose; prevent these and other objects
from interfering with driving by getting entangled with moving parts or driving mechanisms.
use and maintenance ETV mille Caponord

Do not keep objects that can be dangerous
in case of fall, for example pointed objects
like keys, pens, glass vials etc. in your
pockets (the same recommendations also
apply to passengers).

!##%33/2)%3
The owner of the vehicle is responsible for
the choice, installation and use of any accessory.
Avoid installing accessories that cover
horns or lights or that could impair their
functions, limit the suspension stroke and
the steering angle, hamper the operation of
the controls and reduce the distance from
the ground and the angle of inclination in
turns.
Avoid using accessories that hamper access to the controls, since this can prolong
reaction times during an emergency.
Big fairings and windshields installed on
the vehicle may produce aerodynamic forces that affect the stability of the vehicle, especially when riding at high speed.
Make sure that the equipment is well fastened to the vehicle and not dangerous
during driving.
Do not install electrical devices and do not
modify those already existing to avoid electrical overloads, because the vehicle could
suddenly stop or there could be a dangerous current shortage in the horn and in the
lights.
aprilia recommends the use of genuine
accessories (aprilia genuine accessories).
,/!$
Be careful and moderate when loading
your luggage. Keep any luggage loaded as
close as possible to the center of gravity of
the vehicle and distribute the load uniformly on both sides, in order to reduce umbalance to the minimum. Furthermore, make
sure that the load is firmly secured to the
vehicle, especially during long trips.
KG!
Avoid hanging bulky, heavy and/or dangerous objects on the handlebars, mudguards
and forks, because the vehicle might respond more slowly in turns and its manoeuvrability could be unavoidably impaired.
Do not place bags that are too bulky on the
vehicle sides and do not ride with the crash
helmet, because they could hit people or
obstacles, making you lose control of the
vehicle.
Do not carry any bag if it is not tightly secured to the vehicle.
Do not carry bags which protrude too much
from the luggage-rack or which cover the
lights, horn or indicators.
Do not carry animals or children on the
glove compartment or on the luggage rack.
Do not exceed the maximum load allowed
for each side-bag.
When the vehicle is overloaded, its stability
and its manoeuvrability can be compromised.

aWARNING
The fuel used for internal combustion
engines is extremely inflammable and
in particular conditions it can become
explosive.
It is important to carry out the refuelling
and the maintenance operations in a
well-ventilated area, with the engine off.
Do not smoke while refuelling or near
fuel vapours, in any case avoid any contact with naked flames, sparks and any
other heat source to prevent the fuel
from catching fire or from exploding.
Further, prevent fuel from flowing out of
the fuel filler, as it could catch fire when
getting in contact with the red-hot surfaces of the engine.
In case some fuel has accidentally been
spilt, make sure that the area has completely dried and before starting the vehicle verify that there is no fuel inside
the fuel filler neck.
Since petrol expands under the heat of
the sun and due to the effects of sun radiation, never fill the tank to the brim.
Screw the plug up carefully after refuelling. Avoid any contact of the fuel with
the skin and the inhalation of vapours;
do not swallow fuel or pour it from a receptacle into another by means of a
tube.
DO NOT DISPOSE OF FUEL IN THE ENVIRONMENT.
KEEP AWAY FROM CHILDREN.
Use only premium grade unleaded petrol,

This mixture is ideal for most running temperatures and ensures good protection
against corrosion.
It is advisable to keep the same mixture
also in the hot season, since in this way
losses due to evaporation are reduced and
it is not necessary to top up very frequently.
The mineral salt deposits left in the radiator
by evaporated water are thus reduced and
the efficiency of the cooling system remains unchanged.
If the outdoor temperature is below 0°,
check the cooling circuit frequently and if
necessary increase the antifreeze concentration (up to maximum 60%).
For the cooling solution use distilled water,
in order not to damage the engine.
aWARNING
Do not remove the expansion tank plug
(1) when the engine is hot, since the
coolant is under pressure and its temperature is high.
If it gets in contact with the skin or with
clothes it may cause severe burns
and/or damage.

CHECKING AND TOPPING UP
aWARNING
Check the coolant level and top up the
expansion tank with cold engine.
U Stop the engine and wait until it has
cooled down.
U Keep the vehicle in vertical position, with
the two wheels resting on the ground.
U Make sure that the coolant contained in
the expansion tank (2) is included between the “FULL” and “LOW” marks, by
checking through the appropriate slot on
the right fairing”.
FULL = maximum level
LOW = minimum level
If not, proceed as follows:
U Top up the expansion tank by adding

CHART), until this almost reaches the
“FULL” level. Do not exceed this level,
otherwise the fluid will flow out while the
engine is running.
U Put back the filling cap (1).
aWARNING
The coolant is noxious: do not swallow
it; if the coolant gets in contact with the
skin or the eyes, it can cause serious irritations.
Do not use your fingers or any other object to check if there is enough coolant.
aCAUTION
Do not put additives or other subtances
into the fluid.
If you use a funnel or other similar
items, make sure that they are perfectly
clean.
aCAUTION
In case of excessive consumption of
coolant and in case the tank remains
empty, make sure that there are no
leaks in the circuit. Have it repaired by
an APRILIA Official Dealer.

After repairing a tyre, have the wheels
balanced.
This vehicle is provided with tubeless tyres.
aWARNING
NOTE
Perform the maintenance operations with doubled frequency if the vehicle
is used in rainy or dusty areas, on uneven
surfaces or on racetracks.

Check the inflation pressure at room
temperature every two weeks.
Check the conditions of the tyres and
the inflation pressure at room temperature every 1000 km (625 mi), see p. 107
(TECHNICAL DATA).
aWARNING
Periodically check the tyre inflation
pressure at room temperature, see p.
107 (TECHNICAL DATA).
If the tyres are hot, the measurement is
not correct.
Carry out the measurement especially
before and after long rides.
If the inflation pressure is too high, the
ground unevenness cannot be dampened and is therefore transmitted to the
handlebar, thus compromising the driving comfort and reducing the road holding during turns.
If, on the contrary, the inflation pressure
is too low, the tyre sides (1) are under
greater stress and the tyre itself may
slip on the rim or it may become loose,
with consequent loss of control of the
vehicle.

In case of sudden braking the tyres
could even come off the rims.
Further, the vehicle could skid while
turning.
aWARNING
Check the surface and the wear of the
tyres, since tyres in bad conditions can
impair both the grip and the controllability of the vehicle.
Some types of tyres homologated for
this vehicle are provided with wear indicators.
There are several kinds of wear indicators. For more information on how to
check the wear, contact your Dealer.
Visually check if the tyres are worn and
in this case have them changed.
Change the tyre when it is worn out or
in case of puncture on the tread side, if
the puncture is larger than 5 mm.
The tyres must be replaced with other
tyres of the type and model recommended by the manufacturer, see p. 107
(TECHNICAL DATA); the use of tyres
different from those prescribed may adversely affect the manoeuvrability of the
vehicle.
Do not install tyres with air tube on rims
for tubeless tyres and viceversa.
Make sure that the inflation valves (2)
always have their sealing caps on, to
prevent the tyres from suddenly going
flat.
Change, repair, maintenance and balancing operations are very important
and therefore they must be performed
by qualified technicians with appropriate tools.
aWARNING
For this reason, it is advisable to have
the above mentioned operations carried
out by an APRILIA Official Dealer or by a
qualified tyre repairer.
If the tyres are new, they may still be
covered with a slippery film: drive carefully for the first miles. Do not oil the
tyres with unsuitable fluids. If the tyres
are old, even if not completely worn out,
they may become hard and may not ensure good road holding.
In this case, replace them.

Avoid parking the vehicle catalytic version near dry brush wood or in places
easily accessible to children, as the catalytic silencer becomes extremely hot
during use; be very careful and avoid
any kind of contact before it has completely cooled down.
The catalytic vehicle is fitted with a silencer
with metal catalytic converter of the “platinum-rhodium bivalent” type.
This device provides for the oxidation of
the CO (carbon monoxide) and of the HC
(unburned hydrocarbons) contained in the
exhaust gases, changing them into carbon
dioxide and steam, respectively.
Owners are warned that the law may prohibit:
– the removal or rendering inoperative by
any person, other than for purposes of
maintenance, repair or replacement, of
any device or element of design incorporated into any new vehicle – for the purpose of noise control – prior to its sale or
delivery to the ultimate purchaser or
while it is in use;
– the use of the vehicle after such device
or element of design has been removed
or rendered inoperative by any person.
Check the exhaust silencer and the silencer
pipes, making sure that there are neither
signs of rust, nor holes and that the exhaust
system works effectively.
If the noise produced by the exhaust system
increases, immediately contact your aprilia
Official Dealer.
