39. APRILIA SHIVER 900
THE FACTS O 93.9bhp O 192kg (est) O Seat height 810mm
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
