Cool2 Aprilia Caponord 1200 - Beast or Road Warrior?

Was looking at this Blog on an Italian man who is using his Aprila Caponord in a very adventurous way. Sure makes it look like it belongs here with the Beasts.

Take a look and voice your opinion - Beast or Road Warrior!

Thanks for that blog link Bryee.
Crazy with 17" knobs on the front, like a Motard. WR250X comes to mind.

To answer the question.
It would seem anything with a 17" on the front would be a Road Warrior.
It would seem...

Mine is doing fine - does not seem so big though - kind of the reason I got it over some other choices.

Well if this is not Adventure then I think nothing is. I translated a few sections of the Blog and he loves the bike and it has performed with out a hitch in some very remote areas of the world.

So with the right tires I feel the Capo is very capable of adventure travel. On the other hand if you purchased the Capo to replace a previous Sport Touring bike - I think again it will fill the bill very well.

So it is a Beast if you that is how you choose to ride and it is very much a road warrior if that is your prefered method of touring.

What it is not is a dirt bike!

Thats the reason I'm considering a 'Nord'. I have a 1200Gs, 2011 and it's great on the road, but a handful at slow speed. I loved a tuono I had a few years ago. Biggest problem is closest dealer is hours away. But, these don't need much service. I can change oil. Love the looks.
