Segment: Naked / Road

The 2011 Aprilia Shiver 750 is the missing link between the middleweight naked bikes and the big-bore beasts.

Far from being a compromise between these classes, the Shiver 750 has a segment of its own and those looking for a versatile all-rounder will be pleased to discover a bike with excellent handling, easy to understand and to operate, with precise acceleration from the RBW throttle and compliant suspensions.

Even more, the 2011 Shiver 750 brings in Aprilia's acclaimed 3-mode mapping for an exhilarating riding experience in pretty much any conditions. With plenty of power on tap and suspensions tuned to work seamlessly even on rougher roads, this naked machine is a great bike for everyday riding.
