Aprilia Shiver 900 (2017 onwards)

Italian bikes are mostly known for their stylish design and a lot of character. The Aprilia Shiver 900 is no exception and it is an awesome looking bike.

The motorcycle is equipped with a v-twin engine that is very smooth and responsive. Compared to its predecessor, the Shiver 750, its engine has a higher cubic capacity and offers much more power. On top of that, it also has a really nice sound. Furthermore, the bike comes with a better display and fully adjustable suspension.

The Shiver 900 is very comfortable even on longer rides and it is a much more practical motorcycle when you compare it to its sister, the Dorsoduro 900. The only downside is its higher weight.
