Aprilia is on a mission with new models pouring from the factory and fans of the Italian brand will be able to see the full range at the Amid Motorcycle Expo from August 8-11.

Among its new products will be the Caponord 1200 Travel Pack.

The Caponord is a big deal for Aprilia, and for South Africa since it caters for the adventure touring rider – the strongest segment of the local motorcycle market. With a powerful V-twin, electronic adaptive suspension, adjustable drive modes and traction control it offers a combination of features perfect for dealing with SA’s hugely varied riding terrain.


Also on display from Aprilia will be the naked Shiver 750 (now equipped with ABS) and their top-of-the-range naked sport bike, the Tuono V4 R APRC ABS.

Also on the Aprilia stand will be 2013 versions of the RSV4 R APRC superbike that took Max Biaggi to two World Superbike championships, the super-scooter known as the SRV 850 ABS and the Mana 850 – a fully automatic motorcycle using many of the same ingredients as the 850 scooter.

Of particular interest to the younger rider will be Aprilia’s RS4 125, a bike that emulates the technology and desirability of its bigger V4 brother and provides the ultimate introduction to sport riding.

Aprilia brings a sporting element to all its models and you can examine them up close and personal at Amid.
