Best in class
Powered by a new twin-cylinder engine, the naked bike from Noale grows in engine capacity to guarantee more torque and more fun. New performance combined with an absolutely top shelf frame for a rideability that raises the bar to new heights in the naked sport bike segment. An intuitive, powerful, agile and technological bike is born in the best aprilia tradition, dedicated to maximum riding pleasure. As always, Aprilia makes refined mechanics and an excellent chassis structure the winning values on its new bike. Aprilia Shiver 900 evolves the original project of a motorcycle that, from its first appearance on the scene in 2007, marked a turning point as the first factory bike fitted with Ride-by-wire technology to manage engine throttle valve electronics.
A non-conformist naked, the new Aprilia Shiver 900 places even more emphasis on a distinctive design: from the lateral air intake ducts that embrace the front end to the characteristic compact rear end with the exhaust pipes positioned under the saddle, the new superstructure - fuel tank side covers, side panels, tail, front mudguard - the aesthetics have been deeply revamped.
The new twin cylinder also stands out for its aggressive features that highlight its distinctly sporty character: the frame, the shock absorber spring and the cylinder head covers are now painted red. Adrenaline-charged details that blend with the three available colour schemes - Evolution White, Hi Tech Silver and Unconventional Green - creating an original contrast.
Another characterizing element of Aprilia Shiver, the exhaust, has been redesigned: while maintaining the position under the saddle that contributes to an extremely clean side view of the bike, the terminal part of the silencer is now shorter and aimed upward. A brand new exhaust bottom made up of concentric rings ends in a concave disc: a further bold stylistic element that makes the Shiver immediately recognizable even from the rear, as well as being a practical way to send the exhaust fumes downward, thereby avoiding interference with the passenger and ensuring greater comfort.
