RiDER POWER 2008 - Aprilia Caponord


Just received the RiDER POWER 2008 yesterday, and it was great to see, probably for the first time, the Caponord listed in it!

Which means that enough owners this year filled the survey!

The Caponord was on position 79 out of 173 entries with an overall score of 80.50%.

In more detail it had:

Build quality: 2
Brakes: 2
Controls: 4
Dealer: 0
Engine: 4
Gearbox: 4
Handling/suspension: 3
Headlight: 5
Maintenance: 3
Mirrors: 5
Pillion comfort: 5
Reliability: 2
Rider comfort: 4
Running costs: 3
Wind protection: 3

The marks were on a scale of 0 to 5, so we got bottom marks for Dealer and top for Headlight, Mirrors and Pillion Comfort.

KTM 950 Adventure (03-06) 8th place 87.96%

BMW F650 149th position 74.48%
Yamaha TDM 850 157th position 72.92%
Yamaha XT660R/X 172nd position 63.81%

Considering that all of the bikes above the Caponord in the list had a 4 or 5 for dealer support, where the Capo had only 0, it would have mad a big difference if we were more happy with the Aprilia dealers!
