Aprilia Shiver

Aprilia Shiver
World’s first motorcycle to feature ride-by-wire technology arrives in U.S. with a limited-time high-tech bonus for enthusiasts

American sport bike enthusiasts who refuse to sacrifice rideability and comfort for spirited performance and aggressive good looks have a tempting new solution – Aprilia’s first-ever middleweight sport bike, the SL 750 Shiver.

On sale in the U.S. market in early 2008, the Shiver V-Twin is the first all-new, middle-weight V-Twin to debut from the company’s Noale, Italy factory.

The 2008 Aprilia Shiver combines Aprilia’s race-proven technology and functional design philosophy with sophisticated components and materials never before available on a 750cc motorcycle, such as the first-ever application of ride-by-wire throttle control technology and the category’s first application of radial caliper race brakes.

These rare standard features signal the Shiver’s serious appreciation of an enthusiast’s performance demands, while the motorcycle’s ultra-light weight, comfortable upright riding position and refined suspension all create a motorcycle equally at home on city streets, highways or serpentines.

The 2008 Aprilia SL750 Shiver has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $8,999.00 USD. Color choices for U.S. riders include Fever Silver and Code Orange.
