Honda redesigns its Gold Wing from the ground up for 2018
Powered by a new twin-cylinder engine, the naked bike from Noale grows in engine capacity to guarantee more torque and more fun.
New performance combined with an absolutely top shelf frame for a rideability that raises the bar to new heights in the naked sport bike segment.
An intuitive, powerful, agile and technological bike is born in the best aprilia tradition, dedicated to maximum riding pleasure.
As always, Aprilia makes refined mechanics and an excellent chassis structure the winning values on its new bike.
Aprilia Shiver 900 evolves the original project of a motorcycle that, from its first appearance on the scene in 2007, marked a turning point as the first factory bike fitted with Ride-by-wire technology to manage engine throttle valve electronics.Features may include:
- 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.
- Engine: we write torque, you read fun
The new Euro 4 engine grows to 900 cc from the 750 cc on the first version. This increase was achieved thanks to the increased stroke that clearly increases torque in the mid-range, all to the advantage of a better response during acceleration and exiting corners. The 90 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm that are consequently obtained guarantee pure fun in the saddle. This is was one of the main objectives for the Aprilia engineers in designing the new twin-cylinder. The power, which increased in any case to over 95 HP, stems from the decision to comply with the legal limits in order to be able to obtain approval for the version with power limited to 35 kW as well, that can be ridden with an A2 class drivers license. Aprilia Shiver 900 is therefore an easy bike to ride even for new bikers, accompanying them in their personal evolution of experience in the saddle.
- 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.
