2002 Aprilia Caponord -excellent Miami, Florida

Well taken care bike in Miami - Florida

I bought this motorcycle with 17k to a previous owner who really took care of the bike. I just loved but move make me sell it. The price and quality is far beyond good compare to a KLR or V-STROM .
It has a trip from New Orleans to Miami when I bought it, other to Tampa and back this weekend and some commuting. Always good response, just love this bike.

This is a real solid Italian bike on off road machine, 1000 cc, 2 cyl. 2 sparks/cyl. , a lot of power.
Rotax engine, high rpm technology found on KTM and BMW rotax quality engines.
Italian and refinement design just found on europeans bikes. Very comfortable on long range trips. NEVER A PROBLEM EXCEPT FOR ONE OF THE FUEL CONNECTOR WHICH I REPLACED by METAL type. This was a recall problem easy solved

I am currently living in Ecuador and am planning a trip south later this year. What is the ballpark cost for shipping from Miami to EC?

To Kyle

I did sent you an email.

To everybody, I can help to ship the bike from Miami everywhere in South America. Prefered ports, Cartagena, Guayaquil, Lima, and any port of Chile, Arica, Iquique, Valparaiso and San Antonio (1 hour from Santiago).

Have in mind, in about a week I will be promoting a few container shipments w/bikes to Peru and Chile beginning October (Peru) and January, February and March (to Chile). The ball park cost per bike will be $800 dollars (one way) for bikes just shipped and $2500 both ways shipment after 15 days touring. The home base is Miami (my home).
