Aprilia Other description

2014 Aprilia Caponord 1200, Pre-Order now available.ENGINE:
The Aprilia twin cylinder boasts extremely advanced construction technology and a careful study of internal fluid dynamics aimed at improving combustion, decreasing friction and maximising performance. The engine was the object of some significant advancements, both in software and hardware, in order to obtain more progressive power output from low rpms (to the advantage of comfort) and to enhance riding pleasure thanks to even higher torque values (to the advantage of fun), at the same time improving fuel economy.

ADD:
The ADD (Aprilia Dynamic Damping) is the semi-active suspension system that measures the energy transmitted by bumps on the road surface to the bike and adjusts the hydraulic fork calibration and shock absorber in real time to minimize accelerations on the frame and consequently maximize comfort. To achieve maximum performance at any fork and shock absorber operating frequency, ADD uses a patented comfort oriented algorithm which combines the principles of the well known skyhook and acceleration driven damping algorithms.

MULTIPLE RIDE BY WIRE:
Ride by Wire system, the fruit of extremely sophisticated technology which helps the rider to get the most out of the bike's performance potential, dialogues perfectly with the engine ECU, managing the power in the best possible way at each point of the power output arc in order to have jerk-free manageability at low RPM, extreme responsiveness at medium RPM and exemplary spurts at high RPM. With its triple maps (Rain, Touring and Sport), which the rider can select even with the bike in motion, provides the possibility of having a bike with three distinct personalities, able to instantly adapt to any possible condition and preference.


SPORT: maximum performance with responsive and direct power output in order to satisfy an aggressive riding style.

TOURING: the maximum power expressed is the same as the Sport mapping, but output becomes more fluid and suitable for daily riding or touring.

RAIN: power is limited to 100 HP in order to guarantee maximum control and safety in conditions of poor grip.


ATC:
(Aprilia Traction Control) is the exclusive traction control system derived from the Aprilia Performance Ride Control (APRC) system on the extraordinary RSV4, designed and fine tuned by Aprilia to get maximum grip out of any type of surface, able to give the rider great riding confidence, simultaneously increasing safety. The 3 levels of control can be adjusted based on different riding styles and asphalt conditions:

Level 1: for a pure sport riding experience, all fun and adrenaline.

Level 2: suitable for the city and touring and in general to manage the engine's great power on any route.

Level 3: ideal for safety taking on difficult situations such as low grip surfaces, staying in complete control.
