Aprilia Shiver GT review

It going to take long for to put some clothes on the …

The 600-750cc all-rounder sector is the in motorcycling, so almost every available has faired and … The Shiver was new in 2008, filling a hole in the company`s range its ageing V-twin superbike and the class, where only the Pegaso lived.

The Shiver was the one, then the Shiver GT in 2009, predictably featuring a fairing. This is well into the rest of the bike`s but still it`s rather styled with multiple planes and vents, as is often the way. But it`s certainly enough, the hole in the air it punches is as as the fairing is lumpy, transforming speed riding comfort with the … version.You get a lockable glove box and 12V power

It keeps surprising me just how a small piece of plastic on the of a bike can transform its usefulness at long distances at speed, as the whole character of a bike. The GT is into a machine you`d for trips as far as the Dolomites in the north of Italy, where our test took place, although me you might then be disappointed at the 20 per power loss you suffer riding roads a mile and a above sea level. Great for but not so clever when our mission is to the bike, although I have the otherwise identical standard before so I do know what the V-twin is like when closer to sea level.

It`s pretty good in thanks to being in a low state of despite its potentially revvy x 56.4mm bore and … You can certainly spin it up to the 10,000rpm rev but it`s more rewarding to the revs lower and use the mid-range

Some refinements to the engine have dialled out the low rev lumpiness of Shivers and the throttle response is even though this is a fly-by-wire set up with nothing than electricity connecting wrist to the throttle butterflies. there are choices of mapping, Touring and Rain, though is fine most of the time.

Aprilia put some effort the sound of the bike, tuning the system to enhance the deeper while minimising the higher ones, and sure enough the purr you get as the bike accelerates is reminiscent of a one litre twin, and satisfying it is too. The thrust is (when the bike can get enough ), though not an adrenalin pumping of power, but this suits the purpose nature of the bike

A shame though the fuel isn`t better: the bike to be ridden far and there`s even a pannier option, although are fabric-made, not waterproof and with zip closure, so they`re nowhere as useful as they could and be. They`re small too and stick out a way, so despite the easy-remove you`re probably better off some aftermarket ones

But that`s when you`ll the 3.5 gallon (16 litre) tank be looking rather empty 120 miles — 45mpg is — which isn`t for trans-European travel. A tighter circle would be helpful it can be obstructive at times.

Staying to home, the good quality and secure yet still usefully handling will impress, as the build quality, while own-make brakes are effective being too sharp or overly ABS is a £300 option worth

The bike is large physically translates into a roomy position and very good comfort, enhanced of course by fairing, and it`s in this that the motor works For many riders Aprilia is something of an unknown quantity as the has not offered bikes in the most market sectors until But typically of the company, the Shiver GT the ground running and should be a option against the mainstream.

Be without sacrifice, quirkiness or as long as that fuel doesn`t bother you too much.
