Cycle World tests new Aprilia Caponord
Here’s what Cycle World had to say about Aprilia’s class-leading suspension and chassis.
“All told, the new Caponord chassis has superb dynamic qualities, and it’s far more agile and surefooted than most adventure-tourers. On top of this, the semi-active Sachs suspension makes the bike comfortable and controllable in a variety of riding conditions. With its stability on uneven tarmac at speed and excellent comfort, the Caponord offers a combination that’s hard to beat. And when the weather turned dry, the Caponord further proved its dynamic virtues on the twisty mountain roads. The bike also proved quite versatile, perfectly adequate for long hauls on the highway yet fine for everyday commuting.”
