It is certainly no easy matter to take the lead in a class as fiercely competitive as the medium powered naked class. A class where the battle is not just about technology and performance, but also design, component rationality and riding ease and pleasure, elements which are not always compatible and are particularly demanding for designers and engineers.

Aprilia has picked up this challenge and interpreted it by applying its own successful philosophy to a completely new design, destined to set new standards for years to come. A bike both strongly aggressive and at the same time clean-cut and elegant, in perfect Aprilia style. A bike at the top of its class for its sporty personality, designed on the basis of the know-how of a company which has to date won 250 world championship victories.

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.
Light, agile and powerful, it has a new generation engine and the most advanced technical features in its class. The brand new 90° V2 produced entirely in-house by Aprilia is extremely compact. Above all, thanks to the advanced electronic management, it can deliver a level of power comparable to four cylinder engines in the same class, but with much more favourable torque at low revs for an efficient and pleasing ride even on everyday routes. True to the Aprilia tradition, the chassis simply has no rivals in its class. The innovative mixed trellis/aluminium frame provides standard setting rigidity. All this makes the bike extremely compact, perfect even for the beginner.

With a dry weight of just 189 kg, the lightness of the Aprilia Shiver 750 also satisfies the most canny motorcyclist. Its manoeuvrability and engine performance enable the bike to accompany its owner from his first few metres on two wheels up to his complete motorcycling maturity.

The Aprilia RXV and SXV were the first bikes in the world to break the ‘single cylinder’ taboo and install a high performance twin in enduro and supermotard motorcycles. At the time it was seen as an almost impossible challenge to develop an off-road twin that would still be accessible to the riding public. But Aprilia’s R&D had the conviction, determination and experience for the job, and victories in top level competitions soon came flooding in, followed by the world supermotard championship title.

The new babies in the Aprilia range, the RX and the SX, are inspired by Aprilia’s world-beating off road twins. The RX 50 and SX 50 are clearly dedicated to young riders seeking the best technology around plus head-turning good looks.

The motorcycles are powered by a 49.9 cc liquid cooled, single cylinder two stroke with light alloy cylinder. The engine is combined with a 7 liters fuel tank and is mated on a six speed gearbox.
