The Italian gets a bigger heart and better electronics to take on its brother form another mother.

Aprilia has been firing on all pistons to give the world class leading performance motorcycles that make the riding aphrodisiac’s hearts racing. And as with them trying to stay with changing times, they add new updated models every year to their existing lineup to keep things fresh. Although they never made many headways before, it seems like they have now learnt things the hard way and have been busy making bikes that speak for themselves and beam technical prowess.

First seen on the EICMA 2016 stage, Aprilia launched the updated models of its naked streetfighter, Shiver. A 750cc motorcycle first launched in 2007, struggled because of its unearthing looks which were not any more striking than the competition. But now, it seems that Aprilia have given their magic touch to the 2017 edition, and it looks more so ever lively and strong.

It carries a bigger 900 cc engine, a jump of a lethal 150 cc from the earlier models and they sit just below the Italian brand’s flagship models RSV4 RF and Tuono V4 1100 RF. New electronics, refined mechanics and an excellent chassis structure sees this motorcycle take new levels of riding pleasure and we are here to find out how.

Aprilia Recalls Shiver and Caponord Models Due to Gearbox Issues

Aprilia Recalls Shiver and Caponord Models Due to Gearbox Issues

Aprilia is jumping on the recall bandwagon, as if it has no other choice but to join in when it discovered that a handful of its Shiver 750 and Caponord 1200 bikes had potentially serious issues that could result in crashes for the bikes and their riders.

So April is doing the prudent thing here, announcing the recall of 337 motorcycles in the US after the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that the bikes’ output gear shaft face may not have been machined to the proper specifications by Aprilia’s supplier, Chonging Qiutian Gear Co. The result of this oversight is that screws fastening the sprocket could loosen over time, potentially causing the rear wheel to lock up. That’s not a good place to be in if you’re a rider and that happens to your bike. The UK’s Vehicle $ Safety Services Agency (VOSA) issued a similar recall of the affected Aprilia bikes, indicating that an abnormal noise on the parts involved could be an indication of the potential problem.

That’s probably all that Aprilia needed to spring to action, immediately announcing the recall of the 2014-2015 models of the Shiver 750 and 2015 models of the Caponord.

According the bike maker, riders can bring their bikes to dedicated dealerships, which will then launch investigations on the affected models to determine if it needs to be repaired. In the event that it does need repairs, dealers will immediately install a revised sprocket fastener kit and, if required, add a new secondary shaft for good measure, all at no cost to the customer.

2012 Aprilia Shiver 750

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.

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.

2010 Aprilia Shiver 750

2010 Aprilia Shiver 750

As the world’s fourth largest motorcycle manufacturer, Aprilia has been noted for creating first-class bikes that captivate any rider’s heart. And every year they have added unique motorcycle models to their huge collection.

In 2007, the company launched the Aprilia Shiver 750. This model, unfortunately, didn’t get the market’s attention successfully due to the Shiver’s not-so-good exterior reported by its importers. However in 2010, the Aprilia Shiver 750 seems to be taking a corner with some major improvements to the bike’s exterior. Many didn’t expect this, but the Shiver 750 has made it’s appearance more head-turning, and its specs more interesting. Aprilia has made changes to the motorcycle’s lower seats, brakes, sitting positions, wheels, and abs in the hopes of selling more units this year. And even though the Shiver has been given a new face and some major revisions, this 2-wheeled vehicle is still easy to ride.

2010 Aprilia Shiver 750 GT ABS

What started as the simple transformation from naked to sport-touring ended up a completely new project for the Italians from Aprilia because turning a class-leading urban commuter into a machine ready to take on any kind of trip means more than simply adding a half-fairing and a screen to the original bike.

The Aprilia Shiver 750 GT/ABS is a technologically advanced and highly refined way to prove the Italians have a word or two to say in this industry.

It was little what Aprilia could improve at their Shiver 750 naked bike, but they decided to do it anyway and then claim the 2010 model year is a more advanced one than its predecessor. Indeed, the naked bike gone supermoto gets a headlight cowl, wave brake discs and new colors, but we wouldn’t brag too much about it as, in essence – meaning engine and chassis – it remains the same.

Aprilia Naked by Dario Caroselli

Aprilia Naked by Dario Caroselli

Designer Dario Caroselli has recently come up with a very aggressive naked motorcycle concept based on the Aprilia Shiver 750, a veritable Italian naked built around a V-twin engine. Called simply Aprilia Naked, the concept bike features compact bodywork and solo seat, while being defined by the lines and color schemes of the original bike.

We’re quite impressed by this concept although we must admit that it isn’t quite in strict accordance with the naked style, but simply a production bike taken to the extreme.

Aprilia to unveil Shiver 1200 and Dorsoduro 1200?

Aprilia to unveil Shiver 1200 and Dorsoduro 1200?

According to a spy shot from Solomoto, Aprilia is currently working at the Dorsoduro 1200 and, most likely, the Shiver 1200 which gives us reasons to believe that the upcoming EICMA show in Milan reserves many surprises from the Italian maker. The same sources claim that Aprilia is also expected to unveil an all-new Caponord 1200 and a new bike that stands as a future competitor for the BMW R1200GS.

But, sticking to what we know for the moment, the Dorsoduro and Shiver will be powered by the same 1200cc, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, DOHC, 8-valve V-twin engine that will produce 130bhp at 9000rpm and 120Nm at 6500rpm. Now, with those numbers in mind, note that the weight increase will only be around 5 to 7 kilos, proving that the Italian engineers haven’t rested on their laurels.

With a little bit of luck, the EICMA show in November will clear things out. And if it doesn’t, we’ll dig to find out some more.

2009 Aprilia Shiver 750 GT

2009 Aprilia Shiver 750 GT

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.
