Aprilia Caponord first ride

As the biking audience matures, demand continues to increase for adventure bikes. Early last year Triumph launched its new Explorer which took the coveted MCN road test class crown in 2012. But since then Ducati has launched its new ‘skyhook’ Multistrada, the first to come with true semi-active suspension, while both KTM and BMW have introduced new models which have ...

Aprilia Caponord 1200 – world first ride

Aprilia's all-new and eagerly-anticipated entry into the adventure bikes class, the Caponord 1200, is currently being put through its paces by MCN Senior Road Tester Adam Child. These are his first impressions: "We're in Sardinia in unseasonably torrential rain – which is restricting how hard we can push the bike – but I'm still impressed. "The Caponord is loaded with ...

2012 Aprilia Dorsoduro ridden

Aprilia’s revised exotic Dorsoduro 1200 has lost weight, gained some Italian ponies and now has a three-way traction control as standard. If you thought the Supermoto scene was drying up you’d be wrong. Aprilia are seven times world supermoto champions, and the Dorsoduro has been a success story since its launch in 750 format back in 2008. It’s Aprilia’s third best-selling ...

Aprilia SRV850 first ride: "like something made as a dare"

The new Aprilia SRV850 is the most powerful scooter yet - and nearly £2000 cheaper than BMW's C650 GT. The SRV850 is a restyled and re badged Gilera GP800 with the same chassis and 839cc V-twin engine. Aprilia says there have been 250 tweaks, including to the suspension and engine, resulting in sportier handling and marginally more power - 76bhp ...

2012 Aprilia Dorsoduro 1200 first ride!

For 2012 the Dorsoduro 1200 has shed some weight – over 2kg just from ...

Video: Aprilia RSV4 v Nissan GT-R: Battle of the computers

Electronic rider aids are where it's at right now, love 'em or loathe 'em, and the Aprilia RSV4 Factory APRC (Aprilia Performance Ride Control) has the smoothest, most sophisticated system of any current motorcycle. The Italian machine's clever computerised brain will help you change gear, control a spinning rear wheel, keep the front wheel on the ground under hard acceleration ...

Aprilia SR Max 300: Taken to the Max

Aprilia’s new SR Max 300 fits neatly into the overcrowded maxi-scooter class, but with a less than subtle difference from its rivals – the Aprilia actually looks exciting to ride. With styling allegedly based on the RSV4 superbike – a little far-fetched, although the black/red colour scheme is eye-catching and the angular layout of the bike is striking – it ...

Video: Is Aprilia's RS4 king of sports 125s?

How quick things change. Just a few years ago if you wanted a performance 125 it had to be a two-stroke. Now the ‘ring-dingers’ have virtually disappeared, made obsolete by emissions regulations and replaced by four-strokes. Encouragingly, though, this hasn’t led to the demise of the sports 125 – in fact far from it. The 125 learner market continues to ...

Aprilia RS4 125: Teen dream goes four-stroke

Walking up to the Aprilia RS4 125 you’d be forgiven for mistaking it for its bigger brother – the 1000cc V4 RSV4R. The styling is exactly like the World Superbike championship winning machine, only when you stop for a closer look do you notice it is in fact, a 125. Sitting on the bike you’d still struggle to guess it ...
