2012 Aprilia Shiver 750

Intro

The 2012 Aprilia Shiver 750 is a very stylistic and technologically advanced motorcycle that has set the bar higher than it had ever before, making other manufacturers have to reconsider how they designed their bikes. The Aprilia Shiver 750 is a naked bike, meaning that all the body panels can be easily removed if necessary or desired. They are very expensive to fix if they get damaged so they have been sometimes removed to avoid unnecessary costs.

The Shiver comes with a big and mean sounding four-stroke, two-cylinder, 750cc V-Twin engine that pumps out an impressive 95 horsepower at 9000 revolutions per minute (rpm) and 59.7 lb-ft of torque at 7000 rpm. The Aprilia twin-cylinder gives many user friendly riding options while still producing and exceptionally high level of output. There is a plentiful amount of torque throughout the whole rpm range to give the bike as much thrust as possible, while at the same time yielding a minimal amount of vibration. The chassis has been molded to fit the exceptionally length-wise compact engine, increasing agility and response when taking on tight turns, turning at high speeds or both. It also has been designed to allow for a bigger exhaust system which gives the bike more horsepower and better fuel efficiency.

The suspension uses a 1.7 inch upside-down fork with 4.7 inches of travel in the front and a twin sided swing arm with adjustable rebound dampening, one adjustable shock absorber and 5.1 inches of travel in the rear. The lateral shock absorber is optimally fitted to the swing arm using the signature cantilever set-up. The absorption capability and generous amount of travel for both ends makes riding city roads and mountain paths more enjoyable than ever. The braking system on this bike uses radial calipers with wavy 12.6 inch discs in the front and 9.4 inch discs in the rear. The engraving into the discs helps increase heat dissipation a little but mainly they increase stopping power. The Shiver does have an optional anti-lock braking system model that uses a two-channel Continental system to guarantee maximum safety when braking.

This bike is a great sport bike that has very impressive speeds, comfort, and braking power, making it a great bike that is more than capable of handling all types of city and mountain roads.
