2009 Aprilia Shiver: Review

Aprilia Shiver 750, with optional equipment

to the U.S. for the 2008 model the Aprilia Shiver may be the best v -twin bike with intentions that you’ve heard of. Equipped with an designed, liquid cooled motor that puts out a 94 horsepower, the bike also a throttle-by-wire system with ECU map settings: Sport, Touring and

Sport should be called because it makes power like flipping a light crack the throttle even and the bike pushes you back in the as the front wheel tries to gravity. Touring is perhaps the all-around mode, as it makes delivery more linear. If you in stop and go traffic, this is how want to run the bike. Rain which I didn’t test, horsepower by about 22% and torque by 26%.

This would make a big in slick conditions, especially for new or riders.

The Shiver feels and the ergonomics are a bit strange when used to a big sport-tourer. The seat is listed at 32”, but I couldn’t foot the bike and I’ve got a 32” The riding position is very for your legs and knees, maintain about a ninety bend. The reach to the handlebars is a long, and I would have a bit more rise than the bar.

No worries, since is easily corrected by adding a or a replacement set of bars. The oddest (to me, at least) was the bike’s short At just under 57”, probably about 10” shorter my BMW K1200RS.

From the rider’s perspective, the just stops at the instrument this isn’t bad, it takes getting used to if coming from a different of motorcycle.

On the road, all sins are The bike pulls hard about 3,200 RPM but runs out of above 7,500 RPM, though redline is 10,000 This isn’t a problem, the bike makes plenty of power in the range where spend most of your The 90 degree v-twin is smooth, and the note is amazing.

Italian sound like nothing on the planet, and I’d almost say the Shiver is the price of admission just to it in your driveway and listen to it Better yet, park it in living room as art; make sure the windows are when you fire it up.

If you buy a Shiver, I guarantee it won’t much time parked. look for excuses to ride it, and it hard. It’s not a bike promotes social responsibility; it’s a bike that lofting the front wheel and any excuse to take the long way especially if it involves a twisty

It’s light, it’s (and if that’s not a word, it be) and it’s easy to ride Or slow, for that matter, the tall seat and semi-upright position give you a great of traffic. The seat worked for me, although some reviewers panned it. It’s a bit on the hard but it gives decent rear for when you whack the throttle in mode.

I wouldn’t call it an all-day-long but it works great for the type of the Shiver was intended for.

pretty clear that I the motor and liked the ergonomics, so didn’t work for me? First, the exhaust looks cool and fine when you’re but it will roast Big Jim and the Twins you’re doing the traffic to traffic light shuffle. are plenty of aftermarket exhausts correct this problem, so not a deal breaker.

Switchgear is a bit but it took me all of two minutes to adapt, so only a minor complaint. are well laid out and feature a analog tachometer, but the information gets a bit busy and some of the lights are difficult to see in bright Again, no deal breakers – it just means that spend some time with your bike, and not a bad thing.

The 2009 Aprilia Shiver 750 at $8,999.00, but there are bargains to be had on the Aprilia is introducing a heavily Shiver for 2010, which brighter colors, improved brakes, narrower seat should improve reach for with shorter legs) and handlebars, so dealers are likely to be to move existing inventory. An ABS is available for 2010, and those who a bit more wind protection can opt for the GT, which features a quarter and windscreen.

If you’re in the market for a … I’d strongly encourage you to ride an Shiver. It may be the best kept in motorcycling.

Special thanks to Superstore for the test ride.
