Taking its name from the past ETV 1000 Caponord, the new Caponord 1200 ABS is powered by a 1,197 cc V-twin engine that produces 125 hp at 8,250 rpm and 114.7 Nm at 6,800 rpm. The bike is fitted with a host of electronic systems such as Ride-by-Wire throttle control, which comes with three modes – Touring, Sport and Rain.

Other electronic systems include ABS, Aprilia Traction Control (ATC), Aprilia Dynamic Damping (ADD) and Aprilia Cruise Control (ACC). The traction control, which comes in three settings is integrated with the ABS but can be disengaged independently. On the other hand, ADD combines the principles of the ‘sky hook’ system to handle low frequency loads and ‘acceleration-driven’ damping to manage high frequency loads.
