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.

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 !

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.

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.

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.

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.
