The Shiver was (and still is) an important motorcycle for Aprilia. It was their first completely new model after being acquired by Piaggio in 2004, designed to offer customers an option in between little screamers like the RS125 and their flagship superbike, the RSV1000R.
As the styling made clear, Aprilia was directly taking on the Ducati Monster 696.
Most notable about the Shiver was the debut of a feature we now take for granted – it was the first ever production motorcycle with ride by wire electronic throttle control. The first reviewers were blown away, saying that the three options of Sport, Touring, and Rain made it feel like “three motorcycles in one…the modification to the Shiver’s power delivery is so significant that it changes the very character of the motorcycle. This is a good thing.” In Sport mode, the engine produced a peak of 95 horsepower and 60 lb-ft of torque.
Other basic specifications include a dry weight of 416 pounds, 4.4 gallons of fuel capacity, and radially-mounted four-piston 320mm dual disc brakes up front with steel braided lines.
This example (VIN: ZD4RAC0079S000850) has been with the seller for five years.
During that time, he’s covered approximately 50 miles. The odometer shows 2,476 miles.
The bike is completely stock, and has had three services over the last five years. The first service included chain and sprockets, valve adjustment, and fluid changes. The latest service included a new battery – all fluids were checked and are fine. There are no major cosmetic blemishes – the seller includes photos of minor issues such as small scratches on the clutch fluid reservoir and marks on the swingarm. He also notes that the front turn signal mounts are weak and have been taped.
