2012 Aprilia Motorcycle
Bristling with high-tech goodness, the Aprilia Shiver is a highly adaptable sport bike suited to conditions ranging from rain to challenging high-speed back roads.
The liquid-cooled DOHC, four-valve, V-twin has three power settings that significantly change the character of the bike. In the Sport mode, the Shiver hits hard and revs quickly, in the Tour mode it’s a fast-and-friendly ride, and the Rain mode keeps you on two wheels in the wet.
Updates for 2012 include new handlebars, a narrower seat and repositioned footpegs, plus a decent fairing.
