The often overlooked Caponord has class-leading ride quality and comfort from the semi-active suspension , especially when ridden two-up. Over bumps and imperfections it’s almost alien like – it’s that good and smooth. It’s not all about the clever suspension either, the ABS is excellent, so is the traction control and changeable rider modes, and it's all wrapped in an excellent chassis with a powerful 125bhp V-twin at its heart. It might not be the best looking bike on the market but the ride quality is one of the best.
This 2013 model has covered less than 5,000 miles and comes with colour-matched panniers for less than £8000.
