Featuring spoked wheels (19” front), hard panniers with aluminium covers, a 24-litre fuel tank, LED running lights, a larger screen plus protection for the sump, oil cooler and bodywork, the Caponord Rally takes class-leading Aprilia technology further into adventure territory. 
Powered by Aprilia’s 1200 cc V-twin engine, the Caponord Rally is packed with state-of-the-art technology developed by the brand’s Championship winning racing division and includes, ride-by-wire throttle with three engine maps, traction control, cruise control, switchable ABS, as well as the class-leading, patented, aDD suspension system that automatically adapts its calibration to match the road surface and riding style.
The Aprilia Caponord 1200 Rally will debut at the forthcoming Intermot Show in Cologne.'
