In CKD form, the Aprilia Shiver 750 has been a favourite with local riders, due to its low cost and the glamour of an Italian brand name. The Shiver has now been thoroughly updated for 2017 with the Aprilia Shiver 900.

Taking the V-twin from the previous generation Shiver 750, the engine is now stroked out to 896 cc, producing a claimed 95 hp at 8,750 rpm and 89.4 Nm torque at 6,600 rpm. While the numbers haven’t changed much from the Shiver 750, the engine is now Euro 4 compliant.

A new fuel tank, side panels, tail unit and mudguard is installed for 2017, along with ride-by-wire, traction control with three settings and two-channel ABS. The TFT LCD display from the Aprilia RSV4 superbike has also transitioned over to the Shiver.

The 2017 Shiver 900 rides on new front forks, made by Kayaba, which are adjustable for rebound and preload. The rear end of the Shiver has a monoshock that is only adjustable for preload.

No word yet from Aprilia on what the pricing or availability of the Shiver 900 might be, but it has been reported that the naked sports machine will be in showrooms by April next year. The CKD 2016 Aprilia Shiver 750 retails in Malaysia at an official price of RM45,888.
