APRILIA SHIVER 750
APRILIA SHIVER 750When we first test rode the Aprilia 750 Shiver in 2007 it had the distinction of being the first standard motorcycle to use the, electronically controlled fuel, ride by wire system.


 

Then it hadn’t been fully developed, but Aprilia has worked on the engine mapping. The 2000 Shiver can be had either as a Naked or GT, with the addition of a new top fairing. It may not be enough to make it a big road bike, but there is at least better protection.

The GT version is aesthetically more sober than the roadster but it is built on a terrific frame accompanied by a fine looking swing arm, which Aprilia is so well-known for.

The two triangular muffler pipes under the seat allow the GT version to retain a certain sporting nature.

There’s nearly nothing missing from the instrument panel…we would have liked the inclusion of a fuel gauge.

Before jumping on, and remember back to the 2007 version and the improvements made are clear. Even while there is the occasional stuttering in low revs, opening up the throttle is a lot more natural and it is all a lot smoother than before.

There are three engine setting to choose from, from the smoothest to the most sporting. This allows the 750 Shiver to accelerate with a rather flattering sonority. The party cycle reacts to the riders desires. The fork doesn’t plunge as much under braking as before and putting it on an angle is a lot easier.

Now for its roadster aptitudes, Aprilia may have over done it a little in giving the 750 the GT moniker. The top fairing provides added protection a 12 Volt socket and two small glove boxes, but you’d be hard pressed to call it a proper GT roadster.

With an ABS system its sporty aptitudes, its different engine settings and reasonable fuel consumption, the 750 Shiver is a fun and safe bike. For just €160 more than the roadster, it still sells for €9159, a bit more than the competition.
