RiDE 'Find Me The Right... Roadgoing Trailie'

By admin - Posted on 07 September 2009

One more mention of the Caponord in the July 2009 RiDE magazine, in the article 'Bike Chooser : Find me the right.. roadgoing trailie'.

There were 5 different price ranges (£1500,£2000,£3000,£4000+,New).
The Caponord appeared under the £3000 section and under the category:

LONG WAY UP : I've got long legs, a thirst for adventure and a thousand yard stare - call me Martin Bormann or Obi Wan McGregor if you like, but I want the Long Way Down dream. Give me the best globe-trotting big trailie you can think of and I'll load it up with the bare essentials (encased in aluminium hard boxes, natch) and head for the third world. Well, probably the Cotswolds or the Lake District actually, but you've got to start somewhere.

The actual description for the caponord which was in the same category with 1999 Cagiva Grand Canyon, 2000 Honda XRV750 Africa Twin, 2004 BMW R1200GS, and KTM 990 Adventure, was:

2006 Aprilia Caponord: 998c, 60 V-twin, 97bhp, 72lb.ft, 215kg, 25 litre tank, ins grp 13, service interval 8000 miles (note: this should be 4500) - Good looking, extremely comfortable, quick and capable, let down by over-soft suspension. Price range: £2000-£3200
