Naked Aprilia Shiver 750 Gets More Aggressive for 2010
“It is a high-performance efficient bike which can seduce even the most demanding rider, but it is also able to bring on those who are new to the two-wheeled scene, as it is so easy to ride,” Aprilia describes the revised Shiver.
The new Shiver will use the same 750cc 90-degree Twin engine as its predecessor, with a claimed power output of 95 hp at 9,000 rpm and 59.7 ft-lb. of torque at 7,000 rpm. Also returning is Aprilia’s three-mode ride-by-wire throttle control which debuted on the 2009 Shiver.
With the simple touch of the starter button, the rider is able to select one of the three maps (Sport, Touring and Rain), and radically change the motorcycle's character.
An ABS-equipped version will also be available.
The main features of the 2010 Aprilia 750 Shiver are listed below:
- V2 90° engine with four valves per cylinder, double overhead camshaft and liquid cooling;
- the integral Ride-by-Wire tri-map technology developed for competitions;
