2010 Aprilia Shiver 750: First pics

It may not be very big on outright performance, but the new Aprilia Shiver 750 sure looks good...

Pics of the 2010 Aprilia Shiver 750 are out and as with the new Dorsoduro, the new Shiver looks better than ever. No major changes here – a mildly revised fairing, 5mm lower seat height, different (lower) handlebars, slightly higher and more rear-set footpegs, wavy brake discs and a new paintjob is about it. The 750cc, 92bhp, 81Nm v-twin engine, with ride-by-wire tech and tri-mode (sport, touring and rain) fuel injection mapping also remains unchanged.

The 2010 Shiver’s steel tube trellis/aluminium beam composite frame and asymmetrical aluminium swingarm is carried over from the previous model, the suspension is non-adjustable and ABS, developed by Continental, is available as an option. And, yes, we think the new Shiver 750 is a damn good looking bike, which should be able to hold its own against machines like the BMW F800R, Triumph Street Triple and Ducati Monster 696 etc.

Pricing and availability details coming soon.
