Alas, poor CapoNord, I knew thee well

Full story here. Those who were hoping for something a little more dirt-oriented (and much, much lighter) in their Aprilia "adventure" bike will probably be shopping elsewhere

Tapping into the market that Ducati is enjoying right now...not a bad idea. Take the Doso, add bits to make it tour, and sell bikes. I like it, even if Aprillia should have an ADV bike.
A Ducati, some Guzzi, a KTM, and a Excelsior...Indian in resto.

I'm interested as a possible Futura replacement, but I want to see the seat height and weight...looks a bit porky to me!

It is a twin after I'm happy!

Gone but not forgotten:
