THE DESIGN: A NON-CONVENTIONAL SPORT NAKED
A non-conformist naked, the new Aprilia Shiver 900 places even more emphasis on a distinctive design: from the lateral air intake ducts that embrace the front end to the characteristic compact rear end with the exhaust pipes positioned under the saddle, the new superstructure – fuel tank side covers, side panels, tail, front mudguard – the aesthetics have been deeply revamped.
The new twin cylinder also stands out for its aggressive features that highlight its distinctly sporty character: the frame, the shock absorber spring and the cylinder head covers are now painted red. Adrenaline-charged details that blend with the three available colour schemes – Evolution White, Hi Tech Silver and Unconventional Green – creating an original contrast.
Another characterizing element of Aprilia Shiver, the exhaust, has been redesigned: while maintaining the position under the saddle that contributes to an extremely clean side view of the bike, the terminal part of the silencer is now shorter and aimed upward. A brand new exhaust bottom made up of concentric rings ends in a concave disc: a further bold stylistic element that makes the Shiver immediately recognizable even from the rear, as well as being a practical way to send the exhaust fumes downward, thereby avoiding interference with the passenger and ensuring greater comfort.
