Declaration of Independence FROM RACE TO ROAD CAPONORD 1200 RALLY CAPONORD 1200 How does it feel? Being a racer is not a profession, it’s a way of being, something inside of us, in our DNA. If you love riding your motorbike, sensing, feeling the wind blowing along the fairing and watching the world passing by through your visor, we get it. We’ve felt that way since our first roar. Are you a true racer? Join the club exclusively for Aprilia Owners. Visit our website and become part of #bearacerclub How does it feel when the wind of change kicks you in the face? How does it feel when the clouds get darker… and it looks like the sky is falling? How does it feel when there’s no shelter, when nothing can stop the rain? How does it feel when you can only look forward? It feels... ...so good ! CAPONORD 1200 RALLY ARMY GREEN CAPONORD 1200 RALLY DUNE YELLOW It feels like there is no weather, no time, no boundaries. It’s just me and the road. On the road. Off the road. Just me and the horizon. Whether together or alone. No matter the destination, the journey is the only thing that matters. Get ready for discovery, equipped with desire; peace of mind is my only luggage. CAPONORD 1200 RALLY SAFARI GREY It feels good. No matter what ground under my feet. COMFORTABLY SPORTY IDEAL POWER AND TORQUE A liquid-cooled 90° longitudinal V-Twin with double overhead camshaft driven by a mixed gearchain system providing a reduction in overall dimensions. The throttle bodies with double injectors per cylinder, combined with the twinspark ignition system, provide a more fluid and smooth delivery of torque starting from low revs and reaching a 115 Nm maximum torque value at 6800 rpm, according to an almost flat curve that lets you perceive the exuberant and uncompromising character of this bike from the very first moment. RIDE-BY-WIRE The ultra-modern engine of the Caponord 1200 has a sophisticated electronic Ride-by-Wire system that allows you to deliver the correct torque at every moment, both when driving in the city as well as on country or mountain roads, all to the benefit of enjoyment, comfort and fuel consumption. CAPONORD 1200 FORMULA RED TRI-MAP: ONE BIKE, THREE PERSONALITIES Close the gas and choose which bike you want to have fun with today, simply by pressing a button: making your every wish come true, has never been easier. TOURING SPORT RAIN Fluid and smooth, to exploit all the power of the 1200 cc engine at all times Maximum performance, for when you want to put yourself to the test with the exuberance of immediate and direct delivery Calibrated, with power cut to size at 100 hp for you to enjoy yourself even in non-optimal grip conditions or on wet asphalt CAPONORD 1200 COMPETITION BLACK ADVANCED DASHBOARD Fully digital, the Caponord 1200 dashboard allows you to keep everything under control: selected engine map, electrical adjustment of the spring preload, gear position, level of adjustment of the ATC system and functioning of the optional heated grips. RIDING SATISFACTION ADD (APRILIA DYNAMIC DAMPING) Aprilia, as always, is at the absolute forefront in technology, introducing the ADD (Aprilia Dynamic Damping) semi-active suspension control system, able to measure the energy transmitted to the vehicle by the roughness of the asphalt and adapt, in real time, the calibration of fork and shock absorber for optimal comfort. The ADD system exploits a patented “comfort oriented” software, which combines the principles of the well-known skyhook and acceleration driven damping algorithms. The system also recognises the rider’s actions (acceleration, gas release, braking, constant gas) and adapts, thanks to an additional exclusive patent, the basic setting of fork and shock absorber, in order to optimise rideability and increase safety in every situation. THE FIRST DYNAMIC SHOCK ABSORBER IN THE BIKE WORLD The ADD system, included in Caponord 1200 Rally and Caponord 1200 Travel Pack, also includes the shock absorber with built-in piggy back, with electrically adjustable spring preload in 4 preset positions, marked with a specific icon on the digital dashboard: rider only, rider with passenger, rider only with paniers, rider and passenger with paniers. An exclusive patent of the Aprilia system is also the automatic spring preload control system. Selecting this option, the system automatically detects the load on board the bike and dynamically adjusts the preload to the optimal value for the correct balance of the bike. CAPONORD 1200 TRAVEL PACK Travel Pack includes the ADD system, Cruise Control, electrically adjustable shock absorber, central stand and the exclusive 29-litre paniers, specially designed in harmony with the aerodynamics, ergonomics and aesthetics of the Caponord 1200. CAPONORD 1200 TRAVEL PACK GLAM WHITE CRUISE CONTROL: NO STRESS Caponord 1200 Rally and Caponord 1200 Travel Pack also include the Cruise Control, to set the desired speed and keep it constant, even uphill and downhill, automatically deactivating it as soon as the rider touches the brake, clutch or Cruise Control button. A very useful system during long journeys on the motorway, to make riding even less tiring and reduce fuel consumption even further. HANDLING MASTERPIECE ABS SYSTEM WITH APRILIA TRACTION CONTROL Aprilia, in collaboration with Continental, has developed a two-channel ABS system which separately manages the front and rear brake, with a sophisticated electronic control unit which continuously controls the speed of the wheels and calibration specifically designed to ensure maximum safety in all situations, without detracting from riding enjoyment. Aprilia Traction Control (ATC) on the other hand is an exclusive traction control system, associated with the sophisticated ABS system, which always provides the best performance from the exuberant 1200 cc engine, also on the most insidious routes and in the most difficult situations, with utmost safety. When engaged, this device has in fact 3 levels of control: CAPONORD 1200 RALLY LEVEL 1 - for a pure driving experience, all fun and adrenaline, without worrying too much about managing the generous engine power. LEVEL 2 - suitable for the city, tourism and in general any route, always with maximum emotion. LEVEL 3 - ideal for the most difficult situations, such as slippery roads, with total control. CAPONORD 1200 TRAVEL PACK The two systems, ABS and ATC, can be deactivated independently of each other. ADJUSTABLE SUSPENSION Caponord 1200 has a manually adjustable shock absorber in terms of spring preload and extension hydraulics and a USD fork, fully adjustable in extension, compression and spring preload with 43 mm stems, with aluminium die-cast feet. BREMBO RADIAL CALIPERS Safety and total control with the Brembo braking system of racing origin: double Ø 320 mm discs and new 4-piston monoblock callipers with radial mounting at the front, Ø 240 mm disc and single-piston floating calliper at the rear.
