2010 Aprilia Shiver 750 ABS

Shiver gets a facelift

The Shiver received a host of for 2010 and our Euro correspondent got to it for a spin at the bike’s launch in Here’s his take on the new and improved

While Ducati is pushing like hot cakes, Aprilia had the same success with its model since its 2007 Importers I’ve spoken to put it to a lack of flair and while BMW and are getting away with in the shape of the silver grey bucket, Aprilia hasn’t. I admit that I’ve with the importers and what a in that respect the 2010 is.

Italian racing red tubular and more thought into an set of decals has sort of already it for me.

But that’s not all; Aprilia has changes to the Shiver ergonomics, with a narrower and more seat and re-positioned footpegs. The position has been altered as As I discovered on a beautiful stretch of in the south of France, comfort is I spent half the day on the Shiver and the on the Dorsoduro Factory and there’s a difference in comfort to the Shiver’s

In addition to improved comfort, the is also now more sports as the pegs and handlebar have adjusted to give the bike front-end feel with weight over that

he mixed steel trellis and plate frame is the most feature on the Shiver. That’s gives the Shiver a sporty over all other features. The rides great through the and despite having, for Aprilia, suspension the feel is great. The is a bike that loves due to that quality chassis Noale. Despite being than the top competitors, the Shiver solid and easy to throw the corner combinations.

The brakes been upgraded with discs for the 2010 model and the ABS works well.

The Shiver features the most version of the 750cc V-Twin and it produces a claimed 95 hp at 9,000 I still have to use the six-speed like a laboring ant, but on southern French roads only fun. The Shiver has emphasis on the top-end power the Dorsoduro so at the top-end revs happen quickly and I found wanting more over-rev for the fastest corners.

In Sport the throttle is aggressive and not the smoothest in the world. In Touring mode, there’s not a hiccup reaching the through a much smoother I didn’t try Rain mode as only for, yes you guessed it, a day.

It’s easy to select but as you use the starter button the engine be running for you to change them. riding you can change the riding but only with a closed which is unnecessary as there are no changes.

A small fly fairing is now equipment on the Shiver 750, deflects a little more than before. As the 750cc is friendly enough with a midrange I’d have no problems it to new riders. Benefits for a new rider a comfortable seat, big engine and ABS.

For more experienced it’s difficult to see how you’d yourself excited for much than a year, but it’s a intro into Italian and V-Twins.


The 2010 Shiver is now a lot “Italian” and doesn’t share the dull silver grey from Piaggio’s scooter The ergonomics are better on both the and the sport side. The 750cc does its job, but I’d personally want to see that 1200cc for more oomph in higher on low revs because that’s not a side.

Midrange is decent but fairly high in the revs for a The brakes are great even ABS and the Shiver handles better the engine can do. All in all a great beginner’s but still not enough for somebody to move up in the world.
