THE FASTEST AND SPORTIEST NAKED IS NOW EVEN BETTER!…

The pride of all Aprilia bikes, refined mechanics and a top class chassis, are once again the key to the success of the Shiver 750.
The Aprilia Shiver 750 is the naked everyone was waiting for. A design able to satisfy the disparate needs of those buying this type of bike.

From everyday use to a trip along mountain passes or use on the racetrack, the Aprilia Shiver 750 is completely at home in any situation, guaranteeing pure riding pleasure at all times.

 

Best in class

Introduced on the market in 2007, the Aprilia Shiver 750 astonished the motorcycle world for its unprecedented contents. The Shiver 750 was in fact the first bike ever to be equipped with the Ride by Wire electronic throttle, a true revolution, a true historic transition as that from the analogue to the digital world. This technology, still unmatched by the direct competition, complements the excellent standard equipment which makes the Shiver “best in class”. Of course the Shiver 750 has evolved over time: Ride by Wire has become second generation, the ergonomics have been improved, with new handlebars and a tapered saddle, while a slight cosmetic facelift has made it even more appealing.

 

Experts have always acknowledged that Aprilia bikes have the best chassis in their class.

The Aprilia Shiver 750 is concrete confirmation that once again Aprilia has managed to create a chassis which is both extremely easy and intuitive and incredibly high performance. The frame exploits all the knowledge Aprilia has gained in racing and also draws on new studies on mixed structures with the futuristic RXV and SXV, already winners of a number of titles on the racetrack. The top part of the tubular steel trellis is connected to large side plates by means of special high strength bolts.

This creates an extremely rigid lightweight frame, the best solution to harness all the horsepower of the Aprilia V90.

Creation of an Aprilia bike always involves synergy between chassis and engine engineers.

The fundamental design choices for the V90 engine led to construction of a highly rational and efficient frame. The reduced longitudinal dimensions of the engine made it possible to obtain a short, agile bike, helped by the particular side positioning of the shock absorber, not a simple cosmetic mannerism, but a precise technical decision which created valuable space for the exhaust manifolds whose shape and size have been calibrated perfectly to ensure maximum engine efficiency. This enabled the optimum exhaust manifold configuration to be obtained, without too heavily affecting the length of the bike and without exposing the shock absorber, a fundamental element for the ride, to heat stress.

The aluminum swingarm with reinforcement truss has been sized specifically to support the asymmetrical stresses caused by lateral positioning of the shock absorber. The rigidity of the swingarm sets new standards for the class.

 

ADVANCED SUSPENSION
The 43 mm upside-down front fork with shell-cast feet to support the radial callipers benchmark smoothness. Its 120 mm stroke means it can tackle both the city and the stress of a sports riding style. The lateral shock absorber with is directly hinged to the swingarm in a cantilever configuration and has adjustable spring preload and hydraulic return.

SPORT BRAKING
To the existing radial calipers, a solution for which it was a pioneer in the field, the Shiver 750 adds brake discs with wave profile that provide, in addition to a different aesthetic impact, more determined braking. On the rear wheel there is a 245 mm disc with single-piston caliper, which provides adequate support to the front brake. The system is completed by metal braid hoses, able to ensure the optimum performance consistency even under prolonged stress.

 

DESIGN

As with every Aprilia product, the Shiver 750 has a highly innovative design where form and function come together to create an almost perfect object. The Aprilia Shiver 750 is pure technology and this is evident in its sharp, sporty lines.

The frame and engine, both brand new, are the foundations of the design and are also, rightly, the main elements characterizing the look of the Shiver 750. Each element has been designed to be not just beautiful but also functional. The design is refined, but at the same time clean-cut, without too many frills for the maximum possible functionality. The Aprilia Shiver 750 exhaust is also a very distinctive design element. On the Aprilia Shiver 750, the technical component becomes a design element at the same time, creating a bike both aggressive and at the same time elegant. The tank-seat-tail assembly further emphasizes the compactness of the bike. The rider becomes one with the machine, perfectly integrated in the short, agile, and sporty bike. This helps establish an immediate feeling between the rider and the bike, making everyone feel as if they have always been riding it. The strongly tapering tail also incorporates the twin exhaust with triangular silencers, a feature which makes the design even more aggressive, while keeping weight distribution highly symmetrical.

The Aprilia Shiver 750 is compact, functional and attractive. The adoption of a side shock absorber not only adds a further distinctive feature to the look of the bike, but also enables a rational and compact exhaust system to be fitted.


EXCLUSIVE TECHNOLOGY AND ITALIAN STYLE

The naked Aprilia that took the world by storm with truly unique stylistic and technological content stands out for its strong personality, riding pleasure and ergonomics.

An innovative engine fitted with latest generation integral Ride-by-Wire, a multimap, a first-rate chassis which is able to satisfy all levels of riders, and exceptional technical package. Aprilia Shiver is without a doubt still a benchmark in the naked medium-powered motorcycle segment.

In designing the Shiver Aprilia chose to take an entirely new path, destined to become a benchmark for years to come, creating a bike with an extremely aggressive design, but at the same time clean and elegant. And so the Aprilia Shiver 750 ABS is at the peak of the sporty concept in its segment as a result of an exceptional frame and suspension package and the ultra advanced multimap Ride-by-Wire technology.

Thanks to the technology applied to the 750 cc twin cylinder engine, Aprilia Shiver is the Italian naked that can handle a rider’s every need in the medium engine size segment. From daily use to more sporty riding on the most popular routes, or even a holiday for two, Aprilia Shiver 750 is capable of taking on any situation and adapting to the various uses, thanks in part to the possibility of changing the type of engine output at the simple push of a button. This way Aprilia Shiver 750 is able to meet the needs of the most experienced biker as well as those who want to be accompanied in their growth to full motorcycling maturity.

Stable, agile and fast, Aprilia Shiver mounts a new generation twin cylinder engine and provides advanced technical solutions. The 90° V-twin is extremely rational and, thanks to its advanced electronic management, is able to guarantee performance and flexibility of use for the modern and advanced biker at any experience level and on any type of route thanks to torque at the top of its category that guarantees a ride which is always clean and fun. The frame and suspension package, in true Aprilia tradition, has no rivals in terms of construction quality and solidity, providing benchmark riding precision.

Design

As with any Aprilia product, the Shiver 750 ABS is also characterised by a strongly innovative design where form and function combine to create a bike with an extremely distinctive personality. Every trait of the design is in perfect harmony with the Aprilia Shiver 750 ABS’s advanced technology.

The frame and engine are the fulcrum around which the project and the characterising aesthetic elements of the Shiver 750 ABS were developed: besides being nice to look at, each detail has a specific function. On this Aprilia naked technical elements themselves therefore become elements of design so that aggressiveness, excitement and elegance blend together perfectly.

Swinging a leg over the saddle, the rider will find a sporty riding position with a posture that allows the bike to be controlled with maximum ease, even and especially on routes where riding is enhanced the most. All of this favours an immediate relationship between the Shiver 750 and its rider, making if feel as though you’ve always ridden this bike. The stainless steel exhaust is split into two triangular tailpipes which are integrated under the bike’s saddle for excellent symmetry of design and ideal distribution of proportions and weight, thanks in part to the rational and efficient lateral placement of the shock absorber.


Engine

The V90 engine is the result of Aprilia’s vast experience in high performance mechanics. Thanks to its peculiar technical features the Aprilia twin-cylinder manages to combine a fully exploitable and exceptionally high output level with user-friendly riding options. The research conducted to reach performance levels at the top of its category has led to the decision to adopt some advanced cutting-edge technical solutions. The Aprilia V2 750 engine has a number of core features: extremely generous torque over most of the rpm range, insignificant vibrations, smooth full power delivery and output levels which are top in its category.

Naturally the Shiver once again implements the integral multi-map Ride by Wire technology that has been developed even further exploiting the racing experience gained with the RSV4 superbike. This technical solution obviously represents the state-of-the-art version of engine control systems and Aprilia Shiver confirms its technological leadership position in its sector.

With the simple touch of the starter control the rider can select, even while moving but with closed throttle, one of the three maps, and radically change the motorcycle’s character:

– “Sport” to have the “throttle in hand” when a rider needs to let off steam exploiting the entire character of this Italian twin cylinder bike;

– “Touring” when smoother power delivery and fluidity are essential during the moments when the racing desires are set aside to enjoy a more relaxing ride, even two-up;

– “Rain” when grip is not as good as it should be and maximum safety is the main objective.

Thanks to the technical solutions installed on this bike the V90 Aprilia is able to achieve outstanding output values. Maximum output of 95 HP at 9,000 rpm and maximum torque of 81 Nm at 7,000 rpm are exceptional performance numbers. The amazing torque available even at low end engine revs makes Shiver absolutely unbeatable on mixed tracks.


MAXIMUM EQUILIBRIUM
The key point of the success of the Shiver 750 is due to its exceptional chassis equilibrium which provides maximum enjoyment for the expert rider and the same riding ease for the neophyte. Only one bike for a very wide range of riders of different experience: a truly hard to match result.

WINNING CHASSIS
Aprilia, famous throughout the world for its chassis, has designed a really out of the ordinary frame for the Shiver 750, constituted by a tubular steel trellis and pressed aluminium plates. Thanks also to the particular compactness of the 750 V2 engine, it was possible to create an equally compact and slim chassis. The aluminium swingarm con stiffening truss has been dimensioned to support the asymmetrical stresses caused by lateral positioning of the shock absorber. The swingarm has a stiffness which is a benchmark for the category.

ADVANCED SUSPENSION
The 43 mm upside-down front fork with shell-cast feet to support the radial callipers benchmark smoothness. Its 120 mm stroke means it can tackle both the city and the stress of a sports riding style. The lateral shock absorber with is directly hinged to the swingarm in a cantilever configuration and has adjustable spring preload and hydraulic return.

SPORT BRAKING
To the existing radial calipers, a solution for which it was a pioneer in the field, the Shiver 750 adds brake discs with wave profile that provide, in addition to a different aesthetic impact, more determined braking. On the rear wheel there is a 245 mm disc with single-piston caliper, which provides adequate support to the front brake. The system is completed by metal braid hoses, able to ensure the optimum performance consistency even under prolonged stress.
