Do I buy 2015 Caponord 1200 Travel Pack

I have my Guzzi in for service and the dealer has a new 2015 Travel Pack for sale heavily discounted. I have their Rally demo and it has the Resonator fitted and I find the ride very good. The last Capo I rode had very poor throttle response and surging, the Travel Pack does not have the resonator fitted. Will the Travel Pack still have the surging problem as I might buy it if ok?

Thumbs up Test Them All

G'day philthunder, I like my Capo TP (it doesn't have the ex-optomiser) but I liked it from the very first test ride, and though I waited till 2015 to buy it, I was already hooked...

At the time it was better than MS1200 as it had cruise control and nicer suspension......unfortunately, in this "hot market segment" called adventure sports tourers....the competition is Fierce! Capo has been surpassed by way better machinery from BMW, KTM, Ducati....all with latest gen electrickery......(I've just seen the 2016 MS1200 DVT Enduro at the Sydney M/cycle Expo.......ohh man, you gotta see this thing.....).

If you like what you have ridden, they are great value but will require 10-15,000kms to run in enough to be judged properly, so I'd say look at them all and then decide on what 'floats your boat'.
