Equipped with a new 900 V-twin
engine, the Aprilia Shiver projects maximum torque at any rpm. The design
aesthetics of the bike have been revamped to include side covers on the fuel
tank, side panels, tail fairing and front mudguard which highlights its sporty
character. The mixed steel trellis and aluminium plates frame creates an
extremely compact bike and enhances the riding experience of the discerning
bikers. The refined mechanics and excellent chassis structure are set to make
these bikes the best in class.
The Shiver has an ultra-modern
instrument cluster which comprises of a TFT technology display with a large
4.3” screen. It has the ability to adapt the background and font colours based
on the conditions detected by the light sensor. Smartphones can also be
connected through the AMP kit and all data related to the calls and audio files
can be accessed.
For the first time, the
Aprilia Shiver has an advanced traction control system, together with an
upgraded version of the ride-by-wire technology which is an evolved
ride-by-wire electronic accelerator system, now completely built into the
throttle grip. Aprilia Shiver is the first street bike in the world to be
fitted with the ride-by-wire technology since its introduction in 2007. The
ride-by-wire technology has come from the Aprilia MotoGP bike and has been
adapted by all manufacturers world over.
Like the Shiver, the Aprilia
Dorsoduro is also equipped with the ride by wire electronic accelerator system,
which enables riders to change the engine mapping, thereby creating a change in
the amount of power utilized. The Sport setting provides an immediate and
aggressive throttle; the Touring is ideal for touring and daily use, providing
a smoother response. The Rain map is ideal for difficult weather conditions and
slippery road surfaces.
The combination of the
traction control system along with the continental two channel ABS system adds
to the sporty feel of the bike. The bike is also equipped with a new coloured
TFT digital instrumentation which is similar to the one on Aprilia Shiver. The
Dorsoduro, like all other Aprilia motorcycles, also has the multimedia platform
which enables riders to share and manage all their trip information, interface
with handlebar controls. Using this platform, riders can also receive
indications on consumption, routes and Aprilia service centre locations.
In addition, both the bikes
are also equipped with a new, 540 grams lighter Kayaba front fork and lighter
