The 2007 Aprilia Shiver 750 is a naked sportsbike with some serious Italian style.

The Shiver 750's gorgeous gold-colored aluminium trellis frame leaves the all-new 95 horsepower, 59 ft lbs of torque, 90° V-twin engine on show. The new engine features Aprilia's first electronic throttle control available on a road bike.

The Aprilia Shiver 750 features cast aluminium wheels, radial Brembo brakes with four piston calipers and braided lines, offset canteliver monoshock, 43 mm upside-down front forks and a combined analogue/digital dash, making the Aprilia Shiver 750 slightly more expensive, yet far more exclusive, than its Japanese competitors like the Honda CB600F Hornet and Yamaha Fazer.

In 2010 the Aprilia Shiver got a mild makeover which consisted of a lower seat, repositioned foot pegs, different handlebars, a narrower rear wheel, uprated brakes and slightly firmer suspension. The bike also recieved mild cosmetic changes.

Review by: Carol Higer
The new Aprilia Shiver appeals to that part of my brain that got me riding as a kid; it looks like a blast to ride. I'm still a bit wary about all of these "under the saddle" exhaust systems especially if a beautiful woman hops on the back. The concept looks hip and sleek but as many of us know, even the lower slung pipes can get uncomfortably hot especially in stop and go traffic. Just because it can be done doesn't mean that it should.

Like the Aprilia Tuono, I believe the Shiver 750 will perform as good as it looks. Looks are not everything but this bike beats it's competition in the aesthetic department soundly.

The Fazer and the Hornet are just plain bland. I like the direction Aprilia seems to be headed. If the workmanship is high and it looks this good, I will buy.
