EICMA 2016 marked a radical trimming of both Aprilia and Moto Guzzi model ranges: the maxi enduros from both makes, CapoNord 1200 and Stelvio 1200 respectively, have been cancelled. It happened quietly, a silent kill in Ninja style, while everybody at the Milan show was looking the other way. There was no retirement announcement, no farewell ceremony. After hearing the first rumor, I called Piaggio P.R. Department Manager Paolo Pezzini. He was straight and correct as always, confirming the rumors.
