Обзор мотоцикла Aprilia Shiver 900

First Impressions

My first impression of the 2018 Aprilia Shiver 900 was the way the styling of the bike makes it look aggressive yet refined. I loved the color and stance. It was undeniably Italian and the attention to details was present throughout the motorcycle.

I sat on the bike and the seat was just perfect for me. I am 5’9” and the bike felt very comfortable.

The handlebars are in almost the perfect position for me. I did not feel like I was sprawled out on the tank and I also did not feel like I was sitting completely upright like on a cruiser. The seating position is very comfortable.

The tank is incredible! I love the width. The design is perfect for your knees to tuck up and the vents on the front give it an aggressive look.

The seat is very nice. It is comfortable and the attention to detail is amazing. I love that the red stitching on the seat is the same color as the frame of the bike

What about the Shiver’s other competition?

For a motorcycle that’s been on the market for a decade, I’ve seen very few Aprilia Shivers on the road. One reason for that is the strong competition it faces. It had some very worthy and less expensive competitors when it was a 750. Things aren’t much easier now that it’s in the 900 class.

The competition starts with the fellow Italian, the Ducati Monster 821, though the Aprilia undercuts it on price. The very appealing Triumph Street Triple R, which unlike the Ducati also matches the Aprilia’s TFT dash, is $1,000 more expensive than the Aprilia but provides more power. The new Kawasaki Z900 we’ve been riding this summer is less sophisticated but is more powerful and less expensive. Then there’s the perennial bang-for-the-buck favorite in the 900 class, the Yamaha FZ-09, with an MSRP of $8,999. I’ve ridden most of those bikes and there’s not a bad one in the bunch. That kind of competition is enough to send a shiver down the Aprilia’s spine, except that the Shiver doesn’t have a spine. Trellis frame, you know.

Ten years ago, I wrote that the Shiver’s headlight looked like it had been designed by Salvador Dalí when he tired of painting melting clocks. Today, it looks a lot more conventional than it did back then. Photo by Kevin Wing.

Of course the other big reason you don’t see a lot of Aprilias on the road, especially Shivers and Dorsoduros, is because the company just doesn’t have as big a footprint in North America as those other manufacturers. While the Piaggio group has been working steadily over this past decade to improve its dealership coverage, you still probably don’t have a neighborhood Aprilia shop, especially if you don’t live in a major market.

With its lower price, bump in power and the TFT dash, the new Shiver 900 makes a compelling case against its direct V-twin competition, the Ducati Monster. Its ergonomics and user-friendly power mean you could easily commute to work through traffic all week and happily burn your entire weekend on a sport-touring blitz through the mountains. This class of bikes is one I’m naturally drawn to, and if you feel the same, I can tell you without hesitation that 10 years after the original Shiver, the upgraded 900 is an even more worthy option to consider.

But I’m still not convinced about the name.

She Said

My wife and fellow motorcycle writer, Allyn Hinton, says, “That was an interesting way to go on the competitor. I might have gone with the Kawasaki Z900 or the Yamaha MT-10. Aprilia didn’t just slap a new engine in the Shiver for the update in 2018. The bike has a new chassis and new suspension, so we have a whole new riding experience in the Shiver 900. Power delivery is super smooth, and suspension is adjustable now, so you can tailor it to your needs. The new instrument display is easy to read, and overall, the bike is very rider-friendly. If I have to give it a label, I’ll call it an everyday bike, so make it your commuter ride and you can’t go wrong.”

First Ride From The Dealer To My House

On the street, the Shiver 900 is an amazing ride. The linear power band gives you the sensation of control at all times. It is very smooth and precise. I loved the stability of the bike and the suspension is absolutely amazing.

I left the dealer on a very cold rainy day and I decided that I would try out the rain setting of the three driving modes. The bike performed wonderfully during my ride home. I was able to do a bit of urban riding along with some back roads going home.

One of the things that I really liked was the sound of this motorcycle. The exhaust is designed in such a way that both pipes come out directly under and behind the seat of the bike. The exhaust note is unlike any other bike on the market… It is refined, yet it still has the growl of a v-twin.

A chassis architecture worthy of the Aprilia tradition

The performance provided by the new engine is perfectly matched to an ultra-fine chassis architecture, easy to ride and intuitive, but at the same time incredibly high performance that, in the best Aprilia tradition, is simply unrivalled in the category. In fact, the mixed steel trellis/aluminium plates frame provides standard-setting stiffness, defines an extremely compact bike and ensures that it is capable of catering to fledgling riders with no problem, as well as enhancing the riding skills of more expert and discerning bikers. This makes flowing routes a favourite playground for the Shiver 900.

The structure of Shiver 900 draws from all the proverbial Aprilia chassis architecture know-how, as well as their experience on tracks all over the world. The trellis upper part in steel tubing is connected to wide spread aluminium lateral plates using special, high-resistance bolts. The combination formed by these elements forms an extremely stiff and lightweight frame, an rational and excellent solution for reining in all the horses of the new Aprilia V90.

The contained longitudinal development of the engine has led to obtaining an agile bike, a feature that also benefits from the choice to position the shock absorber laterally. Thanks to this solution, space was created for the exhaust manifolds that have a shape and volume calibrated to perfection in order to get the best performance from the engine. This has allowed for an optimum exhaust manifold layout, without having a significant impact on the length of the bike and without thermally stressing a fundamental riding element like the shock absorber.

The aluminium alloy swingarm with stiffening truss boasts stiffness values at the top of its category and it is sized to withstand the asymmetrical stress due to the lateral positioning of the shock absorber.

Aprilia Shiver 900 adopts a new Kayaba fork, with hydraulics adjustable in extension and spring preload, almost a half kilo lighter than the one mounted on the first version, with 41 mm stanchions with chill cast feet to support the radial callipers. The 130 mm travel lets you smoothly tackle urban and mountain routes. The two steering yoke plates are made of forged aluminium.

The rear shock absorber, mounted on the side, is pivoted directly to the swingarm, following the cantilever layout and it is adjustable in spring preload and hydraulic rebound. Rear wheel travel is 130 mm.

The sporty, three-spoked wheel rims are also new, inspired by the standard Aprilia Tuono V4 wheels and contributors to containing the weight, reducing the front by 0.9 kg and the rear by 1.3 kg. This leads to a drastic reduction of the gyroscopic effect and therefore greater agility for the bike, improved suspension functionality thanks to the reduction of unsprung masses and quicker acceleration. The new wheel rims are shod with 120/70 tyres on the front and 180/55 on the rear.

The braking system, equipped with two-channel ABS, implements radial callipers to highlight the sportiness of the project and 320 mm discs on the front. On the rear, a 240 mm disc is gripped by a single-piston calliper.

Both the front and rear systems have metal braided brake lines derived from the aeronautic sector, which eliminate the annoying buffering effect of conventional lines and guarantee maximum braking precision.


I like the Aprilia Shiver 900 a lot.

It is an amazing motorcycle and is a lot of fun to ride. The Shiver 900 is the quintessential naked sports bike. It’s light, nimble and has all the power you need. It has an aggressive look and comes with the pedigree of Aprilia’s 54 world titles. Price wise, it is an affordable motorcycle and very unique.

If I could change a few things about the Shiver 90, I would make heated grips a standard option. On a naked sport bike, the lack of a fairing makes it that your hands get extremely cold while riding. I mitigated this problem by adding a set of aftermarket heated grips to the Shiver.

The Shiver does have the option of installing a windscreen. The problem is that it is very expensive to purchase. I have purchased an aftermarket windshield to make my highway riding a bit more comfortable.

It comes with a 24 month, unlimited mileage warranty

I am fortunate to get the opportunity to ride different motorcycles on a regular basis for the purpose of reviewing. That being said, I chose the Aprilia Shiver 900 as my personal motorcycle. I love the look, the sound, the comfort, the performance and the handling of this bike and I would recommend this amazing motorcycle to my friends and family.

Aprilia Shiver 900 Drivetrain

Aprilia powers the updated Shiver 900 with a new 896 cc plant, up from 749.9 cc, that cranks out 93 horsepower at 8,750 rpm and 66 pound-feet of torque at 6,500 rpm. Like the previous mill, it is configured as a narrow, longitudinal-mount, 90-degree V-twin, and it comes with liquid cooling for temperature stability and meets EPA, CARB and Transport Canada emission standards. A pair of four-valve, dual-spark, DOHC heads cap the jugs to wrap up the hardware.

A ride-by-wire throttle control feature filters its signal through the Marelli 7SM ECU and its engine maps that deliver a trio of power-curve profiles. For a final bit of safety, the Aprilia Traction Control feature monitors wheel spin and intervenes as necessary to restore traction, but if you’re into stunt riding or other general shenaniganery, you can switch the ATC off just like the ABS for a full-raw ride.

I’ll tell you what isn’t raw, it’s the power delivery. The new cases use vents and reed valves to reduce pumping losses along with a semi-dry sump oil system and rebalanced crankshaft that makes it buttery-smooth throughout the rev range. Power flows through a six-speed transmission that comes geared for solid holeshots and a 131 mph (210 Km/H) top speed.

В Aprilia shiver 900 производители поставили такой же V-образный двигатель, как на Dorsoduro 900, но с некоторыми доработками. Разница в том, что первый ход поршней в Шивере на 11 мм длиннее, что дает изменение ттх (например, увеличение рабочего объема). К тому же мотор получил новые поршни, облегченные пальцы и антифрикционное покрытие стенок цилиндров. Помимо прочего, изменился коленвал, который стал более сбалансированным.

Тормозная система

Это мотоцикл с плавающими тормозами с 2-канальной системой ABS. В него поставлены фирменные суппорты Aprilia, которые внешне сильно напоминают радиальные Brembo. Они мощные, но не отличаются большой чувствительностью – на легкое нажатие по тормозам не отзываются, надо прикладывать усилия. Вся система оснащена армированными тормозными шлангами. Они, в отличие от стандартных резиновых шлангов, не расширяются и обеспечивают быструю остановку.


Двигатель мотоцикла встроен в компактную решетчатую раму. Она сделана так, чтобы облегчить общую конструкцию, но при этом обеспечить ей устойчивость и прочность. Основной материал – сталь. Большая часть рамы окрашена в красный цвет, что выделяет ее на фоне алюминиевых серебристо-черных пластин.


В отличие от предшествующей 750-й модели на Aprilia 900 появилась настройка подтяга и отбоя. В 41-миллиметровой вилке Kayaba регулируется и жесткость, и отбой. С правой стороны установлен моноамортизатор (тоже регулируемый).

Ходовая часть

Спортивные литые алюминиевые диски позаимствованы у модели TuonoV4, что позволило снизить вес по сравнению с тяжелыми колесными дисками 750-ой модели. Весят они примерно по 2,1 кг каждое, что на 2 кг легче, чем у предшественника. Трехспицевый гоночные колеса (17 дм) обуты в резину 120/70 и 180/55. Шасси представляет собой решетчатую конструкцию с алюминиевыми секциями и маятником, спроектированным специально под асимметричное крепление. Имеется усовершенствованная антипробуксовочная система, которая повышает безопасность езды.

Max: Cool Story About Bros, Bro

Say twin brothers were born to parents short of the substantial financial resources required to support the product of their three-minute romp under the bleachers at a Molly Hatchet concert. After an examination of their limited means, the parents had no choice but to put their newborn crotchfruit up for adoption. Both boys were scooped up quickly, but by separate couples living on opposite seaboards.

Brother Shiv grew up on the East Coast. He studied hard, got good grades, lettered in track (middle distance runner), and while not the life of the party, he was popular enough to be chosen prom king. He worked weekends at the movie theater to save money for college, applied himself, and graduated.

He now works at an investment firm and hosts a poker night where he pours decent scotch. Shiv is your fun-but-responsible friend, the one you call when you want to grab a drink after work and unwind. Did I mention that Shiv also owns a small pickup and has offered to help you move?

The other brother, Durso, grew up out West. He studied hard, got good grades, lettered in track as a sprinter, and was not only the prom king, he was always the life of the party. He worked at the movie theater on weekends to save money for Natty Ice and a bitchin’ Camaro, and still works there today, although now he “knows a guy if you need a little weed.”

Durso is the friend that everyone has a story about, and they all start with, “Remember that one time when Durso was super high?”

His responsibilities, if you can call them that, are making sure everyone’s got a shot of tequila and hooking you up with the hot blonde at the bar. He will need to borrow a couple bucks to pay for the tequila though.

This probably sounds like the plot of a shitty movie starring Lindsey Lohan’s brother (playing both roles) but it’s the best way for me to explain the differences between the two 900 V-Twin offerings from Aprilia. With the same powerplant and tune, one would think that they’d be damn near identical—but it turns out that the similarities end with the motor.

You already know what I thought about the Dodo (and if you don’t, click your way on over to that article), so on to the Shiver.

My first ride on it was a bitterly cold, nighttime romp up to The Wall, making me fully appreciate Aprilia’s naming of the motorcycle. No wind protection, no heated grips, but the exhaust did keep my rump warm. I didn’t experience the buffeting Surj complained about, but I have about three inches on him.

I’m taller, too.

Everything seems to be a bit crisper on the Shiver. Less suspension travel means less squat on acceleration and less dive under braking. The combination of tighter boingers and sportier riding position is noticeable in the corners too.

From initial turn-in to the inevitable power wheelies on exit, the action arrives just a fraction of a second quicker.

In fact, the only thing that Shiver is less eager to do than the Dodo is lighting up the fuel light. It doesn’t have a life-changing amount of additional range, but I did get to stop one less time on the Berryessa route I ran with the Dodo a couple weeks earlier.

Aprilia offers some basic luggage for the Shiver, making it the more logical machine for whenever space in my garage opens up for a borderline-impractical motorcycle. Of course, logic is not really on the front burner when considering ATFATT (all the fun, all the time) motorcycles.

The Shiver is a little more grown up than the Dodo, and I mean that in the best way possible. Shiv won’t take you to an outright raging, Friday night into Saturday morning kegger like his long lost twin brother. He’s about responsible fun, like a Super Bowl party, or a couple of early-evening beers followed by a reasonable bedtime—got work in the morning, after all.

That workaday description might sound like I still prefer the Dodo, but as a guy who feels his age a bit more every day, I’m starting to appreciate slightly more low-key fun.

Rider aids and extra equipment / accessories

Alongside ABS the Shiver gets three power modes – Rain, Road and Sport. As the engine is so smooth they are a bit pointless (Rain drops the power to 70bhp) and most owners simply leave it in Road as Sport is a touch aggressive. Making a Shiver A2-legal is a simple ECU re-flash so it is very easy to reverse, which is good, and there are three levels of traction control and it can also be deactivated. Although a touch basic, the TC and ABS both work well enough for road riding. The Shiver 900 added a new TFT dash to the party (as used on the Tuono V4 and RSV4) and its 4.3-inch screen is nice and clear and has the option of adding Aprilia’s AMP kit for connectivity. Considering the bike was launched in 2017, that’s quite impressive as some modern bikes (the Yamaha Tracer 9) haven’t achieved this yet!

When it comes to accessories, a great mod is to drop the gearing. The Dorsoduro 900, which is effectively a Shiver 900 in supermoto guise, has a 15-tooth front sprocket to give it a bit more spirit where the Shiver has a 16-tooth one for cruising. It is well worth fitting a 15-tooth one on the Shiver as it makes the bike feel more eager to respond. A lot of owners fit loud pipes (and have smelly jackets…), small screens are common, bar-end or smaller mirrors prevalent and you get the occasional bike with a tank bag and heated grips. Generally, however, the Shiver is left pretty much stock.

Power and torque

You may assume the V-twin motor will be lumpy and aggressive but in reality noting could be further from the truth and the Shiver’s engine is remarkably smooth. Feeling a lot like an SV650 on steroids (which is no bad thing) it revs cleanly and has lots of lovely mid-range drive. It really is a very pleasant engine to use and with 93bhp and 66.4ft.lb of torque on offer (it can be restricted to A2-legal if required) is peppy enough to thrill while not being over-the-top or too aggressive. That said, its smooth nature does make it a touch forgettable and when you see the spec of its chassis and the Aprilia name on the tank you kind of expect it to have a bit more fire in its belly. If you want to add a touch of spice, altering the gearing is thoroughly recommended.

История модели

Спортивный мотоцикл «Aprilia RS 125» был запущен в серийное производство в 1992 году. Этот мотоцикл эволюция Aprilia Futura, последний потомок AF1 125.

Мотоцикл Aprilia RS 125

Первая модель мотоциклов Aprilia RS 125 носила название «Extrema» и указывалась с аббревиатурой «R». Он был оснащен двигателем Rotax 123 который мог развить мощность в 34 л.с., а так же регулируемой системой зажиганием, с передней телескопической гидравлической вилкой «MARZOCCHI» и задним регулируемым амортизатором «SACHS». Лишь первая модель Aprilia RS 125 была оснащена тормозной системой легендарной золотой коллекции.

Он сразу полюбился мотолюбителям за эффектный агрессивный дизайн. Недаром многими он признан самым красивым байком своего класса всех времён и народов. На протяжении всего времени Aprilia RS 125 претерпевала значительные изменения (замена двигателя Rotax 123 на Rotax 122, изменения системы зажигания, замена тормозной системы «Brembo» на «Grimeca», о чем свидетельствует выпушенных 5 модельных рядов.

В 2011 году (на рынок попала лишь в 2013 году) модель была значительно модернизирована, снабжена четырехтактным двигателем, но поступила в серию уже с новым индексом – RS4 125.

Данная модель не пользовалась уже тем ажиотажным спросом среди желающих приобрести легендарный 2-тактный мотоцикл. Причин понижения спроса множество: это и четырехтактный маломощный мотор, и различные доработки двигателя по EURO3. Но для нашего отечественного вторичного моторынка ещё долгое время останутся востребованными и актуальными все предыдущие модификации «Aprilia RS 125».

Конструкционные особенности

Как отмечает автор подробного видеообзора камрад Дядя Макс на своём канале, детектор поразительно напоминает Teknetics G2.

По другим данным он является копией Fisher Gold Bug.

Трёхсоставная штанга. Верхняя часть S-образная, с развитым подлокотником, устойчивыми стационарными сошками и блоком управления. Нижняя часть — телескопическая, из двух колен с большим диапазоном регулировок и пружинными клипсами. Штанга под катушку из пластика, со стандартной втулкой под сенсор с двумя ушками. Комплектная катушка — Double D размером 11 дюймов.

В комплекте идут проводные наушники, сумка для переноски и инструкция.

Прибор оснащён монохромным LCD-дисплеем с индикацией числа VDI (метка на шкале дискриминации) и глубины — две большие цифры по центру, из органов управления — два потенциометра и три «плёночные» кнопки — минус и плюс, кнопка пинпоинтер/баланс грунта.

Схема VLF, рабочая частота 19 kHz — неплохая заявка на монетник.

Интересная особенность — два кабельных ввода для наушников — под 3.5 мм и под 6.31 мм.
