The new 2020 Shiver 900 Aprilia Naked Motorcycle is one of the finest motorcycles that come with refined mechanics and a unique chassis structure that won values on one of its bikes. It represents the most recent evolution of the original project of the motorcycle that was the first appeared on the scene in 2007. The bike features the latest Ride-by-Wire technology to manage engine throttle valve electronics. Aprilia Technology is derived directly from the racing world. The Aprilia Cube was the first MotoGP motorcycle to use this technology in 2002, and since then, all of the bikes followed in their footsteps. Following is the full review of the new 2020 Shiver 900 Aprilia Naked Motorcycle with its specification and price.
2020 Shiver 900 Aprilia Naked Motorcycle – Features and Price
The new 2020 Shiver 900 Aprilia Naked Bike comes with the one objective in mind i.e., to achieve maximum riding run. To achieve this objective, the superstructures are reduced to the minimum indispensable to get greater riding pleasure and maximum fun. The technical elements, on the other side, play an essential role in getting maximum out of the new Shiver. The on the handlebars and the front number plate highlights an authentic front section styling while the central area highlights the sporty appearance. The new long and flat saddle has been derived from the sporty world that ensures perfect riding position under all conditions.
The tail section provides the most aesthetic aspects of Shiver, i.e., slender and sleek appearance. The new double exhaust not only gives perfect proportional symmetry and weight distribution but an excellent impression as well. The new frame and an all-new cylinder head covers are painted in red, including gritty finishing combined with graphics in the Adrenalinic Silver color scheme.
The new 2020 Shiver 900 Aprilia Naked Motorcycle comes with a powerful 900cc engine that gives excellent min-range torque. It can quickly provide the 90 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm, ensuring pure fun in the saddle. Furthermore, It is also available in power limited to 35 kW, which is ideal for newly licensed riders.
The new powerplant comes with a 90-degree angle between the two cylinders, including four-valve timing per cylinder and Double Overhead Cam (DOHC) and liquid cooling system. It includes a significant operation that reduces friction on the pistons characterized by a unique anti-friction feature on the mantle.
An all-new efficient semi-dry carter internal lubrication circuit reduces the overall power loss due to shaking. It keeps the consumption and temperature of lubrication to as low as possible. The new high levels of efficiency have also been reduced in combustion due to the new injectors that give better air/ fuel mixture. The engine is attached with an automatic decompressor that makes it easier to start in low-temperature conditions.
The unit is attached to the Aprilia Shiver 900 controlled by Marelli 7SM ECU, which is a substantial evolution on the one hand, plus it allows a sophisticated traction control system to be introduced. The new engine control and management system are now integrated with the single hardware component used in Aprilia Tuono V4 from Noale. All-new clutch components have been redesigned in correspondence to the switch to the 900 cc engine capability. The load on the clutch lever has been reduced by 15%, while the primary drive reduction ratio has been changed to optimized exploitation of the available power.
The new 2020 Shiver 900 Aprilia Naked Motorcycle features new electronic control systems and riding support for which the Aprilia RSV4. It is the supersport bike that has won 7 World SBK titles in its racing versions. The Shiver 900 comes with the latest traction control system that can be set to three different levels, or it can also be disabled. It is designed primarily to ensure maximum safety without compromising the highest level of riding enjoyment. This traction system comes in conjunction with Continental two-channel ABS, whereas the ABS can also be turned off.
An all-new Ride-by-Wire electronic throttle system has made it debuted on the factory bikes on the first version of Shiver, and now it is installed on every motorcycle. It allows the accurate management of fuel/air mixture and the injection throttle valve opening based on several parameters, including engine speed, gearbox position, throttles grip opening, and airflow.
The sophisticated electronic management provides all the possibility of changing the engine mapping to customize the ride quickly.
- The Sport setting offers an immediate and aggressive throttle response.
- The Touring Map offers a smoother response, which is ideal for touring and daily use.
- The Rain map decreases available power to about 70 HP, and it is, therefore, ideal in the event of difficult weather conditions.
Moreover, the mapping can also be changed at any time, even during the ride, only by pressing the engine start button.
The new TFT technology display ensures the perfect legibility of the information provided. The large 4.3 inches of the screen offers all kinds of the necessary information required by the rider during the ride.
The new 2020 Shiver 900 Aprilia Naked Motorcycle features the latest Aprilia Multimedia Platform (AMP) that ensures connectivity with the smartphone, plus it gives all call information on the display. By connecting to the smartphone using the latest dedicated App, the display also becomes a navigation tool, displaying the instruction for the selected route through pictograms. This dedicated app allows the rider to share travel information with other subscribers as well.
The new 2020 Shiver 900 Aprilia Naked Motorcycle features outstanding chassis that perfectly match the powerplant. The chassis offers an easy and comfortable riding experience, plus it also has maintained the Aprilia tradition. The frame consists up of mixed steel trellis/aluminum plates that provide standard-setting stiffness. It is an incredibly compact bike that is capable of catering to fledgling riders without any problem.
The structure of Shiver 900 draws from the experience gained from chassis architecture know-how and their knowledge on tracks all over the world. The new trellis upper part in steel tubing is connected to widespread aluminum lateral plates using special high resistance bolts. The combination formed by these elements makes the frame extremely lightweight and stiff.
The contained longitudinal development of the engine makes the bike agile and gives an aggressive riding position. Thanks to the new exhaust manifolds, the shape and volume calibrated to perfection to get the best performance from the engine. It makes an optimum exhaust manifold layout without having a significant impact on the length of the bike. The new aluminum-alloy swingarm with stiffening truss boasts stiffness valves at the top of its category. It is sized carefully to withstand the asymmetrical stress due to the lateral positioning of the shock absorber.
The motorcycle has got the new Kayaba fork with hydraulics adjustable in extension and spring preload and a new 41mm stanchion with chill cast feel supporting the radial calipers. The new 130 mm of wheel travel allows the rider to tackle urban and mountain routes easily. The two steering yoke plates are made up of forged aluminum. The rear shock absorber is attached on the side, and it is pivoted directly to the swingarm. Rear-wheel travel is about 130 mm.
The sporty three-spoke wheels are taken from Aprilia Tuono V4, and it contributes to keeping weight down. It leads to a drastic reduction of gyroscopic effect and therefore greater agility for the bike. The rims are attached with a 120/70 tire on the front and 180/55 on the rear. The braking system comes with two-channel ABS and has radial calipers to highlight the sportiness of the project with a 320 mm disc on the front and 240 mm disc on the rear with a single-piston caliper.
