I Ride: 2017 KTM 1290 SDGT & 2005 Honda CBR1100XX
G'day from Australia!

Caponord will suit your requirements - but just remember, it is a tall bike, and you may struggle if you are more vertically challenged than me - I'm about 5ft 9.5" in boots and manage well (though the seat can be trimmed down 15-20mm if needed).

On the other forum (2014-2016) the UK guys had a lot of gripes, but I bought a 04/14 model last Feb, and have put 24,653kms onto it in 12 months and absolutely love it. Make sure you have a really good long test ride over roads you know - just so you can compare and be sure you are going to get along with Capo - it has been known to reject it's owners if they are not up to it's liking

I rode one in 2013, but was turned off by the negative comments on the forums until 2015, when I bought my new TP - and it has been a fabulous bike , though you will have to treat it with gusto as they take a long time to run in fully if you are too gentle with the throttle!

Cheers - I mostly troll through the 014-106 forum - there's a heap of info (and mis-info) that's well worth a read + heaps of photos and advice......take several rides....enjoy!
