If you were disappointed by the low-resolution/low-quality spy photo of the Aprilia Caponord 1200 (Aprilia Tuareg 1200 to some) published yesterday, then have no fear because the folks at Moto-Infos have your back, and have whipped up a photoshop of what the bike should look like when it debuts later this year at EICMA. Since the Aprilia Caponord 1200 basically is a Dorsoduro 1200 in sheep’s clothing anyways, the work here is pretty damn faithful to the image we saw just 24hrs ago.
While the Caponord 1200 should be a fairly easy bike for Aprilia to produce, we’re still very interested to see what electronics packages make it onto the machine. In a market segment that’s seeing increased use of sophisticated traction/ride control systems, we’re not certain the base Dorso’s ride mode, traction control, & ABS will be enough whistles and bells for this sophisticated demographic. Time will tell.
