We’re at a top secret test track in Italy riding a pre-production version of Aprilia’s new 750cc V-Twin Shiver.
It’s due to go on sale in June and should cost less than £6,000, which means if you are thinking of buying a Honda Hornet, Yamaha Fazer or Ducati Monster it’s a bike worth seriously considering.
It’s a sit up and beg naked bike which is as comfy as a Honda Hornet and is very smooth and easy to ride.
It has a ride by wire throttle system which helps with the engine's smooth power delivery.
As well as being comfy and practical it also has good performance as you would expect from an Aprilia.
