New Aprilia Caponord 1200 spied

Aprilia’s new 1200cc V-twin Caponord has been spotted testing on the road in Italy as the firm prepares to take on the road adventure market and its leading exponent, the Ducati Multistrada. Italian magazine Motociclismo scooped this grainy image of the bike and shared it with MCN. The Caponord is thought to be a prototype of a 2012 bike undergoing final testing....

Disguised?

I hope that's wearing a disguise. It looks like a bit of a dogs-dinner from what I can see so far. And I had hight hopes for this... I hope I am proved wrong and it turns out to be a cracker.

Honestly who cares?

**MOTORCYCLE NEWS SHOCKER** A motorcycle thought to be a motorcycle was spotted by a motorcycle magazine journalist. The motorcycle is like other motorcycles already on the market and is said to be a motorcycle which will be like the other ones. The motorcycle will boast some new amazing functions and abilities such as MORE horsepower, MORE cc's, MORE electronic gubbins and it will be better than all the previous bikes because it has MORE. It will cost MORE aswell, but don't let that put you off buying it, just think of the MORE you will get. The motorcycle can travel all over the world on it's own because it doesn't even need a rider. So when you are at work, or asleep - the bike won't sit in your garage depreciating. It will be out there enjoying itself. The motorcycle is a happy motorcycle.

More to the point - will there be any Aprilia dealers left by the time this bike hits the shops?

Spied!

I spied a strange looking engine last Friday afternoon!

On the way in to Sheffield on the A57 just past Rivelin, I saw a plain gloss black what looked like a trial style bike, much like this Caponord but it had shaft drive on the right (matt black paint) but it didn't have a hollow axle like a BMW. It was partially obscured behind a wall but it had twin headlamps and looked very similar to a Triumph Tiger (the 1050 model).

What was strange about it was the tiny engine! (Matt black with stainless bolts and fittings). I'm an engineer and couldn't tell you what it was. Possibly a rotary or a small turbo diesel or maybe even electric as it was roughly circular in shape but small at around 12". My missus pulled over and we waited for it to catch up but it went back up towards Glossop direction- Very strange powerplant and i'd liked to have heard it.

Capon ord.

Why would you name a bike after a type of Turkey - especially one that has been castrated?
