First look: 2010 Aprilia Shiver 750

Revised look and ergonomics for Aprilia's naked middleweight

For 2010 Aprilia have revised the Shiver 750 addressing the criticisms regarding the ergonomics and seat height.

Answering the critique from owners, Aprilia have addressed the issues surrounding the tall seat height from the original model by lowering it by .2 inches lower to 31.5 inches tall. Further revisions include a more sport orientated riding position created by moving the pegs further back and the bars forward.

In addition to the lowered seat height, Aprilia have reduced the rear wheel width from 6.0 to 5.5". The rear 180/55 tyre will be kept resulting in a taller riding profile and quicker steering. Keeping on the wheel side, wavy disc brakes have also been added.

The Shiver 750 retains the engine and chassis make up, with the 750cc v-twin and the two-part cast-aluminum/steel trellis frame.
