The Aprilia Caponord is arguably one of the most technologically advanced motorcycles ever built. Featuring Aprilia Dynamic Damping (aDD), ABS, Aprilia Cruise Control (aCC), Aprilia Traction Control (APRC), Ride By Wire and now available the Aprilia Multimedia Platform (aMP).Aprilia have taken innovation and technology to the next level with the development of the Aprilia Multimedia Platform (aMP).
The aMP application is available through iTunes whilst the aMP platform when fitted to the bike establishes a wireless connection between the motorcycle and aMP application transforming the rider’s iPhone or Android device into a virtual, real time, multifunction on board computer.The aMP application together with the aMP platform allows the rider to choose between the following functions: speedometer, RPM indicator, engine power and torque, instant and average fuel consumption, suggested gear selection, longitudinal acceleration along with an extended trip computer. With the help of gyroscopes and vehicle telemetry, the application is also able to calculate the riders lean angles.
The aMP application will flash to indicate the intervention of Aprilia Traction Control (aTC) and the rider can also set a shift light at their favourite RPM. The aMP application will also store the journey data so that the rider can analyse their trip and their riding form.In typical Aprilia fashion, they have pushed the technology and innovation even further to include notifications when the motorcycle is low on fuel whilst GPS technology allows the aMP to also identify the closest fuel stations and even the nearest Aprilia dealer. The aMP together with the GPS will record the last position of the motorcycle before the engine is turned off, in the off chance that the rider forgot where they parked it. The aMP platform is available as an accessory and has an RRP of $341.00.
This is Aprilia technology taken to a whole new level!
