Engine and performance

A 1200 cc, 900 V-twin engine provides maximum cruising power. The engine has been widely refined in terms of its setting, timing and electronic control to allow more progressive and responsive power output obtainable at low speeds all thanks to the high torque values and improved fuel economy. Engine power flows smoothly through hydraulically actuated, wet-sump, six-speed clutch for an ultimate highway rpm which gives the hand a break.


Aprilia Caponord 1200 is digitized and equipped with multiple electronic systems for perfect riding and safety. It can be adjusted to different riding styles and asphalt conditions. It is equipped with numerous systems to allow maximum optimization. The ADD suspension system measures the energy transmitted to the bumps on the road surface and adjusts the hydraulic response and calibration for real-time response. The Aprilia Cruise Control system allows the rider to set and maintain the riding speeds downhill and uphill automatically without touching the throttle.
