NEW APRILIA CAPONORD 1200 RALLY
Aprilia introduces a radically new version of the super technological Caponord 1200, a new bike that breaks down the confines of paved roads to become even more transversal and suitable for any trip, ready for any terrain.
New spoked rims with an important 19" size on the front, new hard panniers with aluminium covers, 24 litre fuel tank, new oversized windshield, new engine guards, supplementary LED lights. Introducing the new Aprilia Caponord 1200 Rally: more eclectic, more protective, more comfortable, super equipped. The high performance of the 1200cc V-twin is a perfect match for the exceptional chassis features typical of all Aprilia bikes as well as the technological content such as Ride-by-wire with three engine maps, traction control, cruise control and ABS (can be disengaged). Caponord 1200 Rally tackles any route intelligently: in fact, this crossover has the exclusive and patented semi-active ADD (Aprilia Dynamic Damping) suspension system, a highly advanced dynamic control system developed in-house by Aprilia, which sets new global benchmarks for the motorcycle industry in terms of technology, efficacy and reliability. The exclusive ADD software uses skyhook algorithms and acceleration driven damping strategies, which are the industry standards for the automotive world. This has made it possible, for the first time ever, to attain superlative levels of performance in all fork and shock absorber frequency ranges. With previous generation electromechanically adjusted suspension systems, the rider electrically adjusted the suspension setup from a selector on the handlebar.
With the Caponord 1200 Rally's ADD system, however, all the rider has to do is ride. The system measures the forces transmitted to the vehicle from irregularities in the road surface, recognises the dynamic state of the vehicle (acceleration, wide-open-throttle, braking or cruising) and adapts the suspension setup accordingly in real time to maximise comfort and maintain vehicle stability.
The new Aprilia Caponord 1200 Rally will be available in European markets from January 2015.

NEW APRILIA RSV4 RR
OUT OF RACING TRIUMPHS, WHERE APRILIA IS WORLD SBK CHAMPION, THE NEW RSV4 RR IS BORN, AN EXTRAORDINARY EVOLUTION OF THE RSV4 UNIQUE AND VICTORIOUS PROJECT CAPABLE OF REDEFINING SUPERSPORT BIKE FRONTIERS
THE EXCEPTIONAL QUALITIES OF A RACING CHASSIS, FURTHER FINE-TUNED, COMBINE WITH A NEW ENGINE THAT HAS MORE THAN 200 HP OF MAXIMUM POWER: GREATER PERFORMANCE, LIGHTER WEIGHT, MORE EFFECTIVE ON THE TRACK AND NEW RIDING PLEASURE ON THE ROAD, WITH THE BEST POSSIBLE TECHNOLOGY PROVIDED BY THE ADVANCED APRC AND RACE ABS ELECTRONIC CONTROLS
APRILIA RSV4 EVOLVES RADICALLY TO CONTINUE BEING THE BEST SUPERBIKE EVER AND, THANKS TO THE NEW V4-MP APP NOW TELEMETRY IS INTRODUCED
The new Aprilia RSV4 RR is the natural evolution of a revolutionary project which has successfully dominated World SBK, with 7 world titles won in 6 years, establishing itself as the best superbike of all times. Aprilia RSV4 is a global reference point for sportiness and performance, the best example of what can be achieved by exploiting the valuable experience of a victorious Racing Department like Aprilia's which, in its brief history has taken 54 championship titles. Skills honed on the track and transferred to the factory product to give advanced users the same excitement as the motorbikes prepared by Aprilia Racing for global competitions.
Unrivalled for its brilliant design and applied technology, the Aprilia RSV4 was conceived around a 65° V4 engine that had never before been seen on a factory sport bike, a frame which is the heir to a dynasty that won 18 titles and 143 Grand Prix races in the 250 GP class, enhanced by the most modern electronics systems applied to managing the engine and the bike dynamics. A genuine vocation of Aprilia which led it to be the first manufacturer to adopt Ride-by-wire as standard equipment, the multimap power output system, but above all the first to patent the aPRC dynamic controls platform with the exclusive self-calibration and wheelie control features.
The goal of the efforts made at Noale to create the new RSV4 RR was the same one that has set the RSV4 apart from the very first version in 2009: to be the absolute best uncompromising superbike, the street bike that comes the closest to being a real racing bike in terms of performance and effectiveness. Aprilia RSV4 RR is equipped with all the electronic and technical refinements that a rider could want, with the possibility of making a further and definitive upgrade by choosing the "Race Pack", which includes exclusive aluminium forged rims and professional Öhlins suspension. To celebrate the arrival of the new king of superbikes, Aprilia is also offering a limited edition version – the RSV4 RF – characterised by a dedicated livery and elements of the Race Pack included as standard equipment.
Aprilia RSV4 RR represents a top shelf technical platform, ready to provide the rider with a "race replica" performance and feeling. As standard equipment it also has all of those features which only the Factory version RSV4 had previously, such as magnesium external housings, oil sump and head covers, a wide range of chassis adjustments and the variable setting intake ducts. Aprilia RSV4 RR is available in two attractive colour schemes, both matte, on a black and grey base (Bucine gray and black Ascari) and a "Race Pack" is also available that includes lightweight forged aluminium wheel rims and more sophisticated Öhlins suspension (shock absorbers, fork and steering damper).
To celebrate the arrival of the new RSV4, Aprilia is also offering a limited edition of 500 numbered units called the RSV4 RF, which comes standard with the Race Pack, as well as a dedicated graphic called "Superpole".

Tuono V4 1100 is the latest and most spectacular evolution of a sport naked dynasty, born in 2002 out of Aprilia's intuition to strip down and fit a handlebar on their flagship superbike (which at the time was the V-twin RSV mille), thereby combining all the advantages of a chassis par excellence with the fun of sitting up and dynamic riding. The patriarch of the new “supernaked” category was called the Tuono 1000 R, the first ultra high performance naked.
In 2013 an even more refined and powerful version was introduced: Tuono V4 R ABS which offered the new features which had already been successfully introduced on the second generation RSV4, such as the higher performance engine (170 HP), the revamped and recalibrated aPRC system and a Race ABS system capable of withstanding even the extreme stress of the track.
The know-how acquired in years of victorious competition at top levels and the experience of the Tuono history now allow Aprilia to exceed limits which had previously seemed insurmountable: introducing the new Tuono V4 1100, an exclusive thrill generator and fun in its purest state. New 175 HP engine with a powerful maximum torque of 120 Nm, revamped chassis setup to achieve better agility, fine tuned aPRC, new look, the possibility of connecting your smartphone to the vehicle through the PMP platform and two distinctly outfitted versions (Factory and RR) that have the same, strictly Aprilia character in common.
