I've just read the September' issue of "RIDE" magazine and the test between the Caponord and the Multistrada. The table of specifications at the end of the article is incorrect ( ref the size of the fuel tanks on the bikes) but during the test the rider (Gary Inman) states
"the Capo's fuel tank is 4 litres bigger than the 'Strada's, and it needs it. Over the course of the day in the Peaks, with the two bikes running in each other's shadow, the Aprilia drinks 4 litres more juice per 110 miles of A-road and some enthusiastic riding"
That's pretty extreme!-as the Multistrada has 150hp and weighs 217kg and the Capo has 125hp and weighs 228kg.
Saxon747 gave us the heads up on this and with rose tinted glasses on my behalf, I did'nt want to believe it, but that's pretty clear.
Not sure if Ducati were ever renowned for good consumption(?) but its a credit to them to achieve such bhp/mpg figures.... however its £4429 GBP more expensive than the Capo
