2004 Aprilia ETV 1000 Caponord
Only Bike I Miss ...By (I am an Owner) on Oct 04, 2008
I've owned MANY bikes in my lifetime and my Caponord is the only bike that I am sorry I sold. I will purchase another one day when possible!
The Caponord is/was such a versitile motorcycle. You could cruise all day on the highway with the 998 Rotex engine with no problems, run through ... mountain turns and hills or use it to run down gravel/dirt roads or trails! It was an awesome motorcycle.
When I was looking for a dual sport I checked out BMW's GS, Triumph's Tiger and Suzuki ... NONE of the others compared as far as the total package. Between the power, the price and the overall LOOKS the Aprilia beat them all.
You would be very happy to have the Caponord in your garage.
I could not get the video to load so here is a link you can look at. This was me on my Capo riding in VT's Green Mountains. http://www.v-man.org/Cycles/images/CapoNord/CapoVT.MPG
