The Aprilia Shiver 750 is a naked bike manufactured by Italian motorcycle manufacturer Aprilia. The motorcycle incorporates the first Ride by Wire Technology on a production motorcycle and a 90° V-twin engine.[1][2][3]

The Shiver is also available as a partially faired option known as the Shiver 750 GT, which was launched in 2009.[4] The instrument panel features comprehensive gauges including a gear indicator. The 'Ride by Wire' electronic throttle has three available power settings, referred to as Sport, Touring and Rain. Sport mode is normal, with maximum power and torque; Touring mode scales back the responsiveness; Rain mode reduces torque by 25%.
