caponord review

well i have been on an 06 caponord purchased new with 300 miles on it since 10/09. it now has 24960 miles. the bike has not missed a beat. mpg kinda suck @ about 40 but the comfort and power make up for it. it does eat rear brakes for snacks. i still think i'll get me a versys someday. i spent 3 weeks commuting 80 miles a day on a vstrom and will NOT be getting one of those.

Honestly, didn't know anything about this machine until your post, but it looks like a winner, at a reasonable price too. I would keep it for long distance touring, especially if you ride two up. Get the Versys for fun and commuting, and save the Aprilia for longer tours.

I had a 03 Cap and loved it. Very few issues.
