There are some other pics in this thread from the dealer show in March.  

Looks like fun to me!  Though my preference would be a 19" front wheel and skinnier rear wheel on such a bike.  Clearly it is aimed squarely at Ducati.

I'm glad to see it with 17" wheels.  The market for boxy-pannier, tall skinny spoked wheeled dirt-eaters is pretty well sewn up between BMW, KTM, Yamaha, Suzuki, Triumph, Moto Guzzi and Honda.  You ADV types are well served already.  Over-served, actually.

This is a bike that turns the fun (and R&D paid-for) 'Duro platform into something a bit more practical, with a broader appeal, while hopefully keeping a good bit of the fun that honking big twin provides.  I simply think of it as the ST version of the Dorsoduro, and don't try to force-fit it into the ADV category.  Because it's not.  It's to the Dorsoduro what the KTM SM-T is to the SM, albeit even less motard-y.

EDIT: Can't believe I forgot about the Stelvio.  They don't want to poach their own sales there either, so keeping it with real wheels and tires helps make it a distinct choice between it and the Stelvio when both are likely to be sitting on the same showroom floor.

Same thoughts here.
Had hoped it would be a good replacement for my old Capo.

Just when I had narrowed my list down to either a new FJR or a Multistrada I see this.   I love my Aprilia Falco SL1000.   Now I'm going to have to put this on the list to consider to buy next year.

Doubtful.  The middle-weight ST market is pretty much dead, and I seriously doubt you'll see Aprilia make a 600+ pound bike to fit into the heavy ST/tourer category which still has a bit of life left in it and some reasonable chance of sales success.  And they've got the Norge to compete in that market.

True, but I also don't think folks predicted Triumph to make the Tiger 800.

Triumph did kill the Sprint ST and GT.  No one knows if they'll have a true ST bike again.  It's all about the Adventure bikes now!

This is pretty much a tall Futura.
That's the MTS 1200, Adventure 1190 and possibly the Tiger Sport so many spy photos floating around are. Tall sport touring bikes.

The V4 is not just for racing, you will see the tuono platform mature into an ST rig, how much easier can it get for Aprilia, just add panniers a revised fairing and taller handlebars.

It looks pretty comfy...... I'll take a white one. That is if they have the fuel mapping worked out.

I need to test drive a 4 value per cylinder Norge..

From my understanding totally changes the bike...

Either way nice to see a bike to challange the Multi...

Yeah, I expect the new Capo and the new KTM 1190 Adventure (non-R) to give the MTS1200 a good run for the money.
