No need for cubes

Test and by Chris Pickett

MOST these days wouldn’t a 750cc machine to be a big bike.

As the has gone on to bigger and bigger and insane power outputs, nice to ride a bike makes do with a moderate and power output, but is also of fun to ride.

The brief

The 750cc Sport is a very easy to to ride, it’s relatively handles well, and the V-twin with 95 horsepower doesn’t too aggressive or come on too strong. If you that from a V-twin then take the 1200cc for a spin (test in an upcoming of Cycle Torque).

But we can’t asking the question why Aprilia build a LAMS version of very bike, say a 650cc with a reversible power system, pretty much Hyosung’s LAMS 650 range. If head honchos say the Australian is too small to warrant the cost of such a bike then enough, but if such a machine get them more sales it be worth it.

I would think a smaller etc wouldn’t be too hard to develop. Of there are more considerations for development of products than just come up with

We found the Shiver a very bike to ride

A decent Euro bike which is approved would be a good we reckon, if it was priced right of In the showroom In what is becoming common place these the Shiver Sport uses a mix of a trellis and alloy frame. Not why this type of system is these days, other it gives a point of difference might help in sales. it works better?

Whatever the it looks cool. Hanging as a stressed member is the 750cc injected and liquid cooled engine. It has all the things you expect in a engine, four valves per dual overhead camshafts

A six speed gearbox and chain complete the drive train.

technology is used by Aprilia on of its models, and the Shiver is no different. enables the rider to have to three different engine Sport, Touring and Rain. Of Sport gives full while Rain doesn’t.

You need to ride one to see what the are because you can definitely feel It’s a great idea and while the 750cc Shiver could be safely ridden in the in Sport mode, it does the rider an extra degree of

Sachs is getting the nod for suspension on of European bikes, and Aprilia the German company’s products for ends of the Shiver. Up front the gets non adjustable 43mm and the rear offset Sachs only gives the rider the of preload and rebound damping

We guess the reason Aprilia has to go down this route is to the cost of the bike. True, the of riders will be happy the suspension but those who want to the boundaries of the bike’s handling find the suspension lacking in circumstances.

The bike isn’t lacking in though, with radial calipers up front and tipping in at under 200 kilos it doesn’t a massive pull on the front lever to stop the Shiver

And ABS comes standard.

Tank is only 15 litres (includes 3 reserve) but the bike is pretty and will give a range of 300 kilometres if you’re cruising We remember Honda’s VTR1000 a similar sized tank and a range of only 150 kilometres so gives an indication of the economy of the 750 engine. On the road As we said the Shiver Sport is easy to

The riding position itself is on perfect for most riders, and light to boot. No dramas this around the car park. hard getting off the hyper we tend to ride so often at Cycle Torque and being happy with ‘only’ 95

ABS is standard on the Shiver

That it all depends on how the power is made.

In the case it’s all usable, you can plod along using the of the engine, but to make any real headway you’ll need to rev the harder, but the good thing is it it, being happiest between rpm when giving it a spurt.

it any harder really isn’t Throttle response in Touring is a little less than if in mode, while Rain it by around 16 horsepower so you do notice drop-off. Gearing is quite too, so this does top gear acceleration.

If you have room the Shiver is quite pulling out in top, but shifting a cog is the go for rapid overtakes.

Looking at the you might get the impression it’s not all comfortable but you’d be surprised.

A 200 kilometre stint in one hit is pretty and fitting an accessory screen make it easier again.

the seat is reasonably well

Bikes like this really designed for touring but the Sport does a pretty job doing it. You can always go for the Shiver GT is basically the same machine but a frame mounted half Verdict We liked the Shiver

The engine likes to be used but is happy cruising along as which is something not all larger V-twin engines in the modern day can It almost has an old school feel to it and nice to ride because of

Of course the V-twin sound is as well.

With standard it sounds nice, fit some louder ones and you’ll to be changing gears all the time to the engine change its note. If was anything to fault it is the lack of suspension adjustment but for what bike costs there is a to be paid, and we feel that’s it.

Should it stop you from one out? No way, most will be happy with the as it is.

Don’t forget, it’s too, so people will at you just a little envious you pull up.

It’s one of the intangible of owning such a machine.
