EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: When you think of big adventure bikes, there’s a fair bet that the Aprilia 1200 Caponord Rally is not the first machine that springs to mind, right? It’s also not a bike you’re likely to bump into, down at the local cafe. But the big Italian V-twin is a very impressive piece of kit with some definite headlines. Ross’ reference to comfort is borne out by road test reports, with a well-designed seat and some brilliant technology delivering extraordinary bum-comfort. The fully-auto suspension doesn’t need to be told whether you’re carrying a passenger, carrying a little or a lot of luggage, or even cruising or fanging it. It … just … knows. Spooky hey? It adjusts damping to suit and, by all reports, does it brilliantly. Matched with Aprilia’s long history building off-road bikes and more recent history with MotoGP, it’s no surprise these machines are getting strong thumbs-up reports from owners and moto-journos alike. This bike looks like it’s in A1 shape and ready to go. Great stuff. Learn more here.
