At a 2000 year old Castle in the sound of horse’s hooves is by a throaty rumble from a The old horse wagons stand for a different type of transport. in armour are replaced by men in leather and it the peasants shiver.

We’re to ride, Shiver in the morning!

The front lifts slightly as I descend the mountain where Castle sits. The new SL750 makes all the noises that escape a beautifully designed underseat Should even make old Brandolini’s haunted ghost’s shiver!

The Aprilia test that I am following knows mountains like the back of his and the pace is urgent straight We ride through some sweeping corners, through a of villages and then up one of the many North of Venice. This is we will test the Shiver for a day and a

Aprilia have long to fill the big gap in the model line-up their 125’s and 1000cc Aprilia have been one of few manufacturers without a real alternative for beginners. This is the why the SL750 was designed. The SL750 enters one of the most competitive of the motorcycle market. The competition Honda’s Hornet, Yamaha Suzuki GSR600, Kawasaki Ducati S2R Monster and BMW F800S.

All very competitive on price, but have just upped the with some high features previously not seen in segment. An all new Ride-by-wire controlled twin engine, USD fork and callipers usually belongs to far expensive motorcycles. Aprilia admit that none of features are needed on an entry …, but they are there at the same price as most of the more value for money Aprilia.

The SL750 Shiver is all new top to toe. The V90 750 is Aprilia’s first big engine built in house. The big engine project was the 4.5 and 5.5 twins for offroad and supermotard racing. The new has not been built for racing it is a pure street project a big emphasis on torque. The RBW system controls the delivery of torque to the air mixture.

Traditionally the ECU would only injection and ignition. When the throttle fully the system provide all torque available at the engine speed without The Aprilia engineers told us the double engine mapping allows for several different mappings to be loaded onto the

Aprilia SL750 is in other ready for handlebar operated of engine modes similar to we find on the K7 Suzuki GSX-R1000. mentioned Sport, normal and wet as options. The Aprilia Ride-by-wire also features take-off, braking and anti-jerking control.

In life on the road it is hard to notice that the throttle is There is no delay when the throttle and acceleration is instant. In gear things don’t start to happen until 4.000 rpm. The engine feeling meatier in this all the way past 6.000rpm where serious power is released all the way 9.000rpm. I played a lot with on and off from 4.000rpm because the sounds really good doing that!

In some of the slow hair-bend corners I that I was left a bit short of from the engine below impossible to get the rear wheel on the power with warm It makes the SL750 a safer for beginners, but takes away of the fun for more experienced riders. have tested many engine mappings before for the standard one.

We think Aprilia have very exciting engine lying around on some in Noale being saved for

The Shiver feels stable and even from standstill. The is wide and comfortable and the handlebars are to reach even when upright. My knees tuck in under the 15 litre fuel

Perfect straight away and all I to think off is my riding.

Some V-twin performance nakeds can be instant and to times even in first gear. There is no thing with the Shiver and all very controlled and pleasant at low No jerking whatsoever and big throttle can be used safely from the go. For doing wheelies this is not but foolproof. At 7.000 rpm the front will lift if you go off and on the throttle.

For high wheelies you need to use the but mine usually ended in the jumping into neutral before second gear be applied. No hooligan machine as but still more fun through the than a lot of motorcycles.

The part steel trellis and aluminium frame is more solid enough for the SL750 This tells us that have more in mind for the frame than just 750. As a matter of fact have made this also with a 1200 of the engine in mind. Shiver both slow and fast with ease and for the short only a minor headshake the redline tells us there’s in action.

The Shiver handles so that it’s a bit deceiving and I had a time believing the claimed figures. For a modern liquid 750cc V-twin there be any doubts though and I give the delivery the blame for making the so civilised.

Just for good Aprilia have used a 43mm USD fork from and Aprilia radial race (not Brembo as many The fork is not adjustable, but Aprilia already warned us that the Factory version is on its way. At the Aprilia have opted for a adjustable rear shock Sachs. Aprilia used the solution to make space for the stainless steel exhaust

The double 320mm steel come directly from the sportsbike flanked by Aprilia’s pot radial struts. There is of power in them and through the USD fork I had full control the braking when needed.

The SL750 Shiver is a motorcycle gives confidence straight There is no steep learning and everything is just smooth and Use the upper rev-range and the sporty character shines through with a great chassis and brakes. Everything you expect Aprilia is there and with exciting new 750cc V-twin the can’t go much wrong. The sounds great and has got so much character than a highly in-line four.

And at £5.500 the price is right I can’t see any other motorcycle in segment with as much for it on several levels than the Good value for money!
