The Shiver – just like the Dor­so­duro at num­ber 34 – gets a bar­rage of up­dates for 2017, and looks more at­trac­tive than ever. En­joy­ing the same ca­pac­ity hike from 749cc to 896cc, and with the best part of 94bhp at the end of the elec­tronic throt­tle, the Shiver should be a pokey and en­gag­ing road­ster. It gets a ride-by-wire throt­tle with three throt­tle maps, plus three-level trac­tion con­trol and ABS as stan­dard. It also fea­tures the same 4.3in TFT screen as its Dor­so­duro sta­ble­mate, plus a new 41mm Kayaba fork, which

is fully ad­justable. The three-spoke wheels that re­place the old 750 model’s are a whop­ping 2.1kg lighter. The Shiver will also be more ac­ces­si­ble now, with an op­tional re­stric­tor kit avail­able al­low­ing the bike to be rid­den by those who hold A2 li­cences.

New 896cc V-twin for the Shiver and it can be re­stricted too HALL 3 STAND 3D20
