Aprilia Shiver Review

The SL 750 Shiver can be edgy and anxious, or relaxing – the character changes are by its three engine mappings.

It is an middleweight choice — responsive and day-long comfortable. some component cost-cutting, it and runs like the thorough-bred it is and Aprilia would not have it any way.


Although the Aprilia Shiver (probably) first, at least for the North market, both the SL 750 Shiver and the 850 Mana (ride report) the same design and, for the part, the same engineering.

while visually similar, and functionally two discrete and divergent are evident. It is this divergence gives each model its own personality and set of capabilities.

As part of the conglomerate, Aprilia motorcycles undergone some major but one thing not lost is their styling, feeling and performance. The SL 750 is evidence of that.

Since seeing the Fever Silver and Orange units sitting on the floor in late March, I had the chance to use the demo machine on occasions, including an extended period. I liked the Shiver – and I like it even more especially for its multiple personalities…

The Shiver is more comfortable the 850 Mana or the Tuono, a fact during two longer rides extended time in the saddle a pleasurable thing and the only required were for fuel, and bio breaks.

Outside of a few missed and a quirky habit of not wanting to go neutral, the six speed transmission, the first two gears, really the Shiver to get up and GO.

At around 3,600 some indication of what is on tap to emerge and by 4,500 to 5,000 there is no doubt that the tap has opened – velocity builds quickly in this region.

But as have observed, once 7,500 rpm the Shiver seems to hit a blanket and is then mushy up to the 10K The shift indicator lights come on at about 6500 probably a good indicator of the range.

I originally thought this upper end feel was of a specific engine mapping but even with some kilometres on the machine, and in getting familiar with its performance this characteristic was present in all modes.

Multiple Are Good

What really to the fun of riding the Shiver is the ability to forth one of three performance at any time – to serve an express or just for the heck of it – via the engine selector.

Of the three modes by the starter button when the is turned on and the proper push initiated) the default is Sport.

In this mode, the Shiver to romp, stomp and lighten (or its front wheel a lot, all emitting a real snarl the exhaust ports. Understandably was my favourite mode to ride in, when traffic thinned out and the tarmac beckoned.

Not needing a booth, a quick stop to into Touring mode out the civilized but still powerful of the engine. The remapped motor is smoother and the exhaust takes on a tone, and best of all is the excellent observed.

As the rain was (somewhat) during the riding sessions, mode was used quite proving very useful. The from the other two modes is distinct – power is down and very smoothly through the system. For slippery surfaces or for the low speed thing around this mode works.

consumption from the 15 litre or 4.0 USG averaged just under 40 per Imperial gallon (Imperial = 4.55 litres) or about 33 per US gallon. The average was calculated five tanks of 91 and 94 octane

In Tour mode, the mileage up to almost 50 per Imperial gallon or miles per US gallon, which is a increase. Mileage was a bit lower expected but given the many roles it was put through this is fully understandable.


The black canister and tubing, on the left front of the engine is the Evaporative Emission System. is required by the US Environmental Protection (EPA) and California Air Resources (CARB). The system has a five or 30,000km warranty (whichever first).

Accessories – while nothing has actually been sighted the Use and Maintenance Book identifies bags, top box, windshield and as accessories, presumably to be released at a date. Some pictures of accessories have been on various sites.

While I won’t complain the machine’s performance, in any mode, I to wonder just what the would be capable of doing if the 5000 to 6500 rpm push was up by two to three thousand rpm. thinking of what that render makes me shiver.

I will repeat myself — I liked the Shiver at ride, I like it even now. Competitively priced, if marked for end-year clearance, the goes head to head some impressive competition in the 600 to 900 cc and emerges, still standing, as of the pack.

It is a very attractive I am counting my pennies.
