First Ride: 2008 Shiver 750 New kind of middleweight Noale.

If you thought Aprilia made scooters, with a few models making it out of the Noale this bike might your mind. It’s the Shiver 750, and it marks a change of pace that boost Aprilia out of its present niche to that of a major manufacturer. It’s conceived as a low-priced roadster to be mass using Aprilia’s formula of tooling and assembly processes tight quality-control criteria.

It uses a new 90-degree V-Twin that will eventually be in a range of models from 750 to This version is performance-oriented, a compact combustion chamber produces an 11.2:1 compression using flat-topped pistons. The breathes freely thru throttle bodies to produce a 95 horsepower at 9000 rpm at the crankshaft and ft.-lbs. of torque at 7000

An electronic “ride-by-wire” system—no the throttle to the butterfly valves.

Aprilia developed a neat-looking frame for the Shiver that two cast-aluminum rear sections and a trellis front. The swingarm in the aluminum sections, with the unit carrying the front for the laterally mounted single The chassis spans a wheelbase of inches, compact while offering 50/50 weight and enough room to comfortably a passenger.

Claimed dry weight is 417

To try it out, Aprilia sent me to Franciacorta racetrack for a thorough, first ride, in addition to a 80-mile cruise on nicely backroads in the area. The engine smooth and responsive from as low as rpm. In fact, response was so that I had to check my instruments to how strong the motor was, as near the 9500-rpm redline was little perceptible secondary

The chassis was beyond my expectations. The 43mm inverted Showa is set right, even for hard riding, and the Sachs rear is impeccable. The latest Dunlop Qualifiers (in 120/70-17 front and rear sizes) share a lot of for the very quick, precise response and solid lean

The chassis is solid, precise, and both on fast bends and hairpins.

The only weak is the brakes, Taiwanese-made clones of radial-mount calipers teamed 320mm stainless-steel rotors in They’re spongy, and hard takes a lot of squeezing. Best I can at sensible speeds on public they get the job done.

The Shiver 750 is expected to come to the by the end of the year. U.S. pricing been announced, but in Italy it sell at a competitive price of euros (about $11,000). Is priced nicely enough for the to put a chill into the bones of the and European competition?

Only time will

Sound Off! Is there for Aprilia?
