Come 2017 and Aprilia Shiver’s 750cc engine will be replaced by a bigger and better 900cc version. The original bike had come out in the year 2007 and was the first factory bike that had a ride-by-wire technology. In fact, this technological leap from Aprilia was used in the Aprilia Cube, which was the first MotoGP bike to use this technology in 2002.
Now back to the Aprilia Shiver 900, which has a V-twin engine that makes it easier to deliver maximum torque. This, in turn, makes the ride both smooth and satisfying. On the design front, the new twin cylinder has been highlighted to sport a distinct look. The end of the silencer is directed upwards and it is much shorter, while the exhaust flow is directed downward for maximum comfort. The bike is also much lighter than its predecessor.
The high performance bike is rather compact and lightweight, which makes it an instant favourite. The bike boasts of three-spoked rims and quicker acceleration. It is equipped with two-channel ABS braking system, which promises maximum braking precision. The riding support and electronic systems guarantee maximum safety and make it easier to manage the bike.
This technologically strong bike naturally has advanced traction control, which makes it rather safe for adventures. The bike also has a super efficient lubrication circuit and liquid cooling technology. The total engine capacity of the bike is 896.1 cc while the compression ratio is 11:1. The Aprilia has a digital ignition and a 15 litres tank.
Motorcycle enthusiasts would be thrilled to know that the bike has a wide range of accessories like fork bumpers and frame guards. The bike has the Aprilia Multimedia Platform, which lets the rider control and share data and trip information easily.
The bike has been refined and will debut in 2017. Currently, MotoGP and Superbike are competitions where Aprilia has gathered much praise.
