Italian style, performance and handling

Aprilia’s Caponord seemingly achieves the impossible: rorty and sporty one minute, refined and oh-so-comfortable the next. Much credit goes to Aprilia’s ADD active suspension that adjusts preload, compression and rebound all on the fly. The result is an amazing bike that’s a pleasure to ride, whether storming a mountain pass or wafting along the motorway.
