The very two bikes I am interested in on one huge photo...THANK YOU!
I've got one too:
cool looking hotel. is it yours?
Great bike porn $$$
I had one of those for a couple years. Loved the bike but sold it thinking a BMW would be more reliable. I was wrong.
here is my mistress.......
If anyone can embed it, please do. I'm stumped
I've noticed mostly '02-'03 Capos for sale. What I'm interested in is an ABS model, new or used in the U.S.
Anyone have any leads? Thanks in advance.
Try doing these searches on Google across all craigslist:
Found 2 on cycletrader for ya:
Also try searching for Caponord on apriliaforum here - http://www.apriliaforum.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=28
2006 and 2007 are the only two years Aprilia made ABS versions.
Have had my Capo since Feb 2007, its a 2003 model. Here are a few pics :)
Besides a few minor electrical glitches (easily fixable) I get a really huge smile on my face when I ride my Capo.
took her out for a short ride around DFW yesterday.
These big bastards can rail on the twisties....
They can do over 120 too...
They feel pretty lite and nimble for a 500# ride, I was impressed. I think I made a good choice.
Ima take off for Houston out of DFW today, so we'll have an idea of how she will do on a 3000 mile round trip.
I got used to the low revs of a thumper over the last 8 or so years, I gotta remember to shift a bit higher on the spectrum, but once I get that, I will like her even more
I just put about 600 miles on mine this weekend:
50% regional 2-lane slab
20% gravel fire roads
20% dirt / fire roads
10% snowmobile trails*
*For those who don't know - up here in Canada we have these things that ride in snow. Local clubs make trails for them - varying from somewhat gnarly (slightly better than single track) trails to graded gravel 'mini roads'.
Anyway - the bike was very comfortable in all but the worst of the snowmobile trails (deep sand, but that's more of an issue for me than the bike). It even did the rock-strewn inclines very well, though I definitely will fabricate a better plate for the bottom after this.
I was particularly impressed with it's relative nimbleness (Before you laugh - I did say relative). It really is a well-balanced bike in my opinion. I was able to pick and execute lines through all kinds of terrain at least as well as I did my tiger (even with my stock tires). Having been on this bike only a few weeks, I figure I'll only get more confident.
Best part of the weekend, in the span of ten minutes, I was:
a. blasting around through 8' wide snowmobile trails at 20-30mph
b. roosting a gravel / dirt regional road at 40-50 mph
c. lofting the front wheel in fourth gear on the pavement (ungodly speeds)
Not a lot of bikes I figure can do all of this as well.

I like the red paint-job on the guards!
I still don't know exactly what the point of that guard is
Right in front of the headlights kind of seems counter productive
They look cool though
Damm that bike is looking nice
red hilighting really sets it off
Sorry I missed you when you picked it up
Looks like you got some good riding in Canada I may have to make a trip up
Thanks - I owe you one
You are welcome to a BBQ & a place to crash up here if you ever head this way
Yup. they won't do much to prevent nasty stone damage, but they will bash a low flying owl, or turkey!! DAMHIK!
Howz about one you Capo vets tell me or point me in the right direction to 86 that "no start in gear".
Shit about got me killed last week.
I need it to start in gear when I WANT it to.
