The Aprilia Shiver 750, A Workhorse Commuter
Priced at about RM 43500 to about RM 45000, the Aprilia Shiver comes in as an economical option for an Italian motorcycle. A near competitor to the Shiver 750 is the Kawasaki ER-6n. Although about a good RM10,000 cheaper, and a few kilograms lighter than the Shiver, the ER-6n falls slightly short of the Shiver in terms of power. With an engine capacity of 649cc, the ER-6n delivers only 64 bhp and about 45 ft-lbs torque at 9000 rpm.
Another downside is that it does not come with as many electronic toys as the Shiver. The size, ergonomics and hence the ‘feel’ of both the Shiver 750 and the ER-6n comes so close together that making the decision between the two bikes truly is a matter of how deep your pockets are. Another bike from more or less the same class that deserves mention is the Yamaha XJ6 ABS.
Priced at about RM3000 more than the ER-6n, it kicks up more or less the same kind of power, falling short of the Shiver. The XJ6 has an engine capacity of 600cc with 42 bhp of horsepower at 10000rpm, and a maximum torque of 44bhp at 8000rpm. When compared to the Aprilia Shiver 750, both the ER-6n and the XJ6 provide a slightly more economical alternative as medium-powered nakeds.
When it’s all said and done, the Aprilia Shiver 750 delivers exactly what Aprilia promises: an elegant and stylish bike, but with no compromises in terms of power and performance. It’s the perfect companion on the streets of a city with its great handling, and should you decide to take it to the track, the Shiver shows that it knows how to dance too. Not to mention the comfortable ergonomics, making the rider feel and look good. A well-balanced moderately price naked, the Aprilia Shiver makes for a good entry level large cc motorcycle.
