DETAILS:
The naked Aprilia that took the world by storm with aggressive style and performance technology continues to stand out for its strong personality, riding pleasure, and ergonomics. An innovative engine fitted with the latest generation Ride-by-Wire, multi-map, and first-rate chassis is able to satisfy all levels of riders. Aprilia Shiver is still a benchmark in the middleweight naked bike segment.

Stabile, agile, and fast, the Shiver 750 mounts a new generation, versatile 90° 750cc twin cylinder engine. With advanced electronic management, the Shiver guarantees performance for riders at any level for daily use to sport oriented riding on the most challenging routes. The Shiver 750 takes on any situation and adapts to the demand, and does easily changing engine maps at the simple push of a button. The frame and suspension package, in true Aprilia tradition, has no rivals in terms of construction quality and solidity, providing top-notch riding precision.

The main features of the Aprilia Shiver 750 are:

  • V2 90° engine with four valves per cylinder, double overhead camshaft and liquid cooling
  • Built in Ride-by-Wire tri-map technology developed for racing
  • Modular trellis/aluminum frame with significant torsional rigidity
  • Aluminum swingarm with stiffener brace and lateral shock absorber
  • 43 mm upside down fork
  • Racing brakes with radial callipers and 320 mm Wave discs
  • Racing style rider/passenger footpegs

The simple touch of the starter offers one of three maps, radically changing the motorcycle’s character:

  • “Sport” – “throttle in hand” for a rider that wants to exploit the full character of this Italian twin bike
  • “Touring” – smooth power delivery to provide a more relaxing ride, even two-up
  • “Rain” – maximum safety is the main objective for road conditions or weather that are less ideal

Thanks to the technical solutions, the V90 Aprilia is able to achieve impressive performance values. Aprilia Shiver 750 delivers a maximum 95 HP at 9,000 rpm and maximum torque of 81 Nm at 7,000 rpm. The amazing torque available even at low end engine revs makes Shiver absolutely unbeatable on mixed tracks.

The 2015 Aprilia Shiver 750 will be available in US dealerships this month at a MSRP of $8,699 and is available in new Aprilia Black, and Formula Red.
