Looking to buy 2016 Capo Rally

My last 2 bikes have been an 06 Multistrada and a 14 Hyperstada. By default, I was going to get a MTS1200 since I loved my last 2 bikes. Decided to look at options before pulling the trigger and included the Superduke 1290GT and the 2016 Capo Rally. I'm leaning towards the Capo but before I pull the trigger, what are the main things I should know or be concerned about? Thanks in advance.

I LOVE the rally. Rode my cousins multistrada and thought the capo was more civilized and comfortable. Better handling too. Peak HP is different but anything under 130mph and they are the same.

Only thing to consider is proximity to your dealer Incase you need service. Capo is very computerized. Other than that I’ve never had any trouble with Aprilia.

I Ride: Caponord Rally Raid
Well, there are issues with all Italian bikes, but the fuel sender now seems to have a permanent fix if yours goes.

The suspension is super plush but can find it's limitations if you really push it.

I love mine, but I think there is a lot of difference between 160 and 125 horses ( if you are lucky) on the Aprilia.

I’ve ridden the MS1200 and honestly I didn’t notice the extra 50 horse. The capo has as much or more power down low to match the MS. The MS really kicks in over 9k rpm, but that’s not a range or a speed where you would use all that power on a touring bike.
