Part of Aprilia’s continuous growing lineup is now the Shiver 750 GT, a half-faired, Shiver 750-derived model which intends on becoming successful not only on Europe’s winding roads, but on freeways too. The new model is designed like a veritable sport-tourer from the old continent as it features angular lines which are more aimed at increasing visual attraction rather than the bike’s aerodynamics.
The engine remains the same V-Twin producing 95bhp and 81Nm of torque, only that it will now have to move more than the previous 198 kg as the fairing and ABS system add significant weight to the new Aprilia.
Apart from the small fairing, anti-lock brakes (ABS) and three riding modes (sport, touring and rain), there’s no feature to distinguish the “GT” model from the previous, simple one. Sport mode delivers maximum power and torque, Tour mode reduces the throttle response a little bit, while during Rain mode, engine torque is being reduced with 25%. The three riding modes are possible due to fuel injection mapping set up which optimizes delivery to suit each individual mode.
