Aprilia Shiver 750 Concept, 2009

Aprilia Shiver 750 Concept 2009

The Light, agile and powerful, it has a latest generation engine and the most advanced technical features in its class. The 90° V2 produced entirely in-house by Aprilia is extremely compact. Above all, thanks to the advanced electronic management, it can deliver a level of power comparable to four cylinder engines in the same class, but with much more favourable torque at low revs for an efficient and pleasing ride even on everyday routes. True to the Aprilia tradition, the chassis simply has no rivals in its class.
The mixed steel trellis and aluminium side plate frame provides standard setting rigidity. All this makes the bike extremely compact and the perfect ride for beginner and expert alike.
The lightness of the Aprilia Shiver 750 also satisfies the most canny motorcyclist. Its manoeuvrability and engine performance enable the bike to accompany its owner from his first few metres on two wheels up to his complete motorcycling maturity.

The main characteristics of the Aprilia Shiver 750 :
" 90° V2 engine with four valves per cylinder, double overhead camshaft and liquid cooling
" Ride-by-wire electronic throttle technology with 3 different mappings (Sport, Touring and Rain);
" Electronic fuel injection with latest generation injectors;
" Mixed gear and chain valve timing;
" Modular steel trellis and aluminium side plate frame for high torsional rigidity;
" Aluminium swingarm with reinforcement truss and lateral shock absorber;
" 43 mm upside down fork;
" Racing brakes with radial caliper at front;
" Latest generation two channel ABS (ABS version only)
The design : Shape at the service of power
As with every Aprilia product, the Shiver 750 has a highly innovative design where form and function come together to create an almost perfect object. The Aprilia Shiver 750 is pure technology as is evident from its mean, aggressive lines.
The Each element has been designed to be not just beautiful but functional too. The design is refined, but at the same time clean-cut, without too many frills for the maximum possible functionality. On the Aprilia Shiver 750, the technical component becomes a design element at the same time, creating a bike both aggressive and at the same time elegant. The new colour schemes for 2009 are the icing on the cake.
The tank-seat-tail assembly further emphasises the compactness of the bike. The rider becomes one with the machine, perfectly integrated in the short, agile, and sporty bike. The strongly tapering tail also incorporates the twin exhaust with triangular silencers, a feature which makes the design even more aggressive, while keeping weight distribution highly symmetrical.
The adoption of a side shock absorber not only adds a further distinctive feature to the look of the bike, but also enables a rational, compact and effective exhaust system to be fitted.

V90 Engine: Technology in the pure state
The V90 engine inherits all Aprilia's experience in high performance mechanics. Thanks to its particular technical characteristics, the Aprilia V90 combines high specific power with maximum usability and easy riding.
The generous twin cylinder powerplant is destined to set new standards in performance and technology for medium powered bikes.

The quest for performance at the top of its class led to the adoption of a number of advanced and innovative technical features:
" 90° V engine layout;
" Ride-by-wire technology with 3 mappings (Sport, Touring e Rain);
" Highly over-square bore and stroke ratio;
" Four valves per cylinder;
" Double overhead camshaft with mixed chain and gear drive;
" Electronic fuel injection with two throttle bodies;
" Plug caps with integrated stick-coils;
" Three way catalytic converter and Lambda probe oxygen sensor;
" Hydraulically operated clutch;

Frame: Rationality and Efficiency
The Aprilia Shiver 750 is concrete confirmation that once again Aprilia has managed to create a chassis which is both extremely easy and intuitive and incredibly high performance.
The design solutions associated with the 90° V twin led to the development of a rational and reliable mixed steel trellis and aluminium side plate frame.
The reduced longitudinal dimensions of the engine made it possible to obtain a short, agile bike, helped by the particular side positioning of the shock absorber. This was not a simple cosmetic mannerism, but a precise technical decision, made to free up the space needed to give the exhaust its optimal dimensions.
The aluminium swingarm with reinforcement truss has been sized specifically to support the asymmetrical stresses caused by lateral positioning of the shock absorber. The rigidity of the swingarm sets new standards for the class.

The 43 mm upside down fork with forged feet to support the radial calipers provides benchmark smoothness.
The 120 mm wheel travel makes the bike equally at home on about town trips and mountain routes.
The bottom steering yoke is made from forged aluminium, as is the top steering yoke too.
The side shock absorber rests directly on the swingarm, according to the cantilever principle, and provides adjustments for spring preload and hydraulic rebound. Rear wheel travel is 130 mm.

The best technology currently available is incorporated in the Aprilia Shiver 750, the first medium powered naked with a radial caliper system, a feature emphasising even further (as if it were needed) the sporty personality of the design.
The 320 mm front discs are the same as used in the racing flagships, the RSV 1000 R and Tuono 1000 R.
At the back, a 245 mm disc with single piston caliper provides adequate backup for the front circuit.

The front and rear braking circuits both use aeronautical metal braid hoses to eliminate the pressure variations associated with conventional rubber brake lines, guaranteeing maximum braking precision for a top level system.
A sophisticated two channel ABS system maximises the Shiver 750 ABS' s already impressive levels of active and passive safety by preventing wheel lock on slippery surfaces and improving braking performance. On the Shiver 750 ABS, all riders can confidently use the full power of the generous braking system, improving safety over difficult surfaces not only in a straight line but on bends too.

Aprilia Mana 850, 2009

Aprilia Mana 850, 2009

The Aprilia Mana 850, Mana ABS
The Aprilia MANA is the state of the art in motorcycle technology. Only Aprilia, with its legendary technical skills, would have dared take on a challenge of this entity. The Aprilia 850 MANA is so advanced and so unique that it simply cannot be compared with any other motorcycle. The Mana takes all the stress from motorcycling while injecting more satisfaction and more fun into riding under all conditions, from commuting to sports touring on the open road. All you need to do to enter a whole new world is press the button on the handlebars.

The transmission management system offers a choice of three "Autodrive" mappings plus a manual, seven speed, sequential gearshift, so you can be absolutely certain to find the perfect ratio for any traffic condition and riding preference. Whether you are just nipping across town or blowing away the cobwebs on a winding country road, the APRILIA MANA always delivers the ideal response and the same unique riding satisfaction. Whatever the conditions, and whoever the rider (even the most demanding), the MANA guarantees a perfect, peak-efficiency ride that lets you discover hitherto unknown potential.

The MANA's compact, sporty and ecological 90° V twin engine is the perfect partner for this type of transmission. It is compact, powerful and ecological. Pace-setting power and torque mean brilliant performance, especially in acceleration. Virtually no other naked can keep up with a Mana as it pulls away from the lights! Yet the Aprilia 850 MANA is so amazingly easy to ride that blistering performance is well within the reach of any rider. The technology that Aprilia has developed for the 850 MANA is truly 'rider-friendly' and amazingly easy to use. The clutch lever has gone, replaced by an electronic control system that leaves you free to relax and enjoy the ride. The sequential gearshift can even be operated by a simply handlebar control as well as by the classic pedal.

The following are the characteristics that make the Aprilia Mana unique:
" 90° V twin engine with four valves per cylinder, Euro 3 homologated;
" sportgear transmission: electronically controlled sequential gearshift offering two shift modes seven speed manual or Autodrive with three mappings: Touring, Sport, and Rain
" storage compartment with non-scratch lining, large enough for a full-face helmet, with mobile phone holder, toolkit & document holder, and 12V power socket;
" under-seat fuel tank;
" brakes with radial calipers;
" 43 mm upside down fork;
" offset monoshock with spring preload and rebound adjustments;
" steel trellis frame with single piece aluminium swingarm;
" twin spark ignition;
" electronic fuel injection with single throttle body;
" latest generation two channel ABS system (ABS version only)

With its exclusive, unmistakably Italian styling, the 850 MANA embodies the perfect combination of elegance and practicality. As with all Aprilia nakeds, the Mana's high-tech components make an essential contribution to overall design.
The 16 litre tank is located under the seat, lower than normal, to distribute weight more evenly and lower the bike's centre of gravity. The "traditional" tank location is occupied instead by an illuminated storage compartment that is lined with non-slip, non-scratch material and big enough to house a full face helmet. The compartment also incorporates mobile phone storage and a 12V power socket.
The MANA is the first motorcycle ever to provide fully integrated helmet storage, a unique and immensely practical advantage, especially for urban commuting and short trips. The compartment is opened electrically by a convenient switch on the handlebars. The lid opens under the control of a hydropneumatic damper that prevents accidental opening while the bike is in motion. A manually operated lever under the passenger seat is provided to release the compartment lid in the event of a flat battery.

There can be no doubt that the Mana engine has opened new horizons in the world of motorcycling, featuring as it does a twin cylinder layout, electronic fuel injection, bags of torque, and above all a revolutionary transmission system that completely replaces the conventional mechanical gearbox and delivers a whole new motorcycling experience even under sport riding conditions.
To develop this amazing new engine, Aprilia has relied on the expertise of the world's top designers and all the skill of its own R&D department.

Starting Electric.
MANA: the future of the gearbox
The most interesting aspect of the Mana engine is without a doubt its primary drive system, based on an electronically controlled, sequential transmission that offers the rider a choice of control modes.

Riders two options:
- Sequential mode: The rider decides for himself when to change gear, either using the conventional pedal or a switch on the handlebars. A servo mechanism shifts the main pulley to change between the seven gear ratios amazingly quickly. During deceleration, if the rider omit to change gear manually, the control system intervenes to change down automatically, preventing engine speed from dropping below the set threshold and providing another valuable aid to active safety.

- Fully automatic mode (Autodrive): Sophisticated electronics assume control over everything, and the CVT transmission keeps the engine running at maximum torque speed for optimum pickup and acceleration.
The Sportgear transmission offers a choice of three mappings:
Touring: for minimum consumption and maximum usability.
Sport: for top performance with blistering acceleration
Rain: for use on wet or slippery roads

- Semi-Autodrive mode allows the rider only to change down independently. This is particularly useful for overtaking at maximum torque revs or for boosting engine braking when riding down a hill.
You can switch from Autodrive to Sequential mode and back at any time, irrespective of riding conditions. The handlebar gearshift control can also be disabled from the dashboard.

The 90° V engine, chosen for torque and power delivery, is the perfect match for this type of transmission. Delivering 76 horsepower at the crank and well in excess of 7 kgm of torque (at 5,000 rpm), the engine produces an extremely flat power curve that translates into plenty of ready power even at low revs.

The robust steel tube trellis frame sets new standards for this class of machine and ensures top level handling in line with the characteristics of the innovative engine. The single piece aluminium swingarm is damped by a monoshock that is laterally offset to free up space for the exhaust pipe behind the engine and make the motorcycle more compact. The MANA has a wheelbase of only 1,463 mm, extremely short for a naked, even a sports model.

High strength steel trellis.
Front suspension 43 mm upside-down fork. Wheel travel: 120 mm.
Rear suspension Aluminium alloy single-piece swingarm.

The 43 mm upside down fork slides easily and features an optimised setup for excellent performance even under sport riding conditions. 120 mm of front wheel travel lets you tackle all sorts of road surface.

Impressive stopping power is delivered by the very best braking technology currently available, developed in-house by Aprilia. Radial calipers with 4 pistons are the state of the art for motorcycle brakes and ensure maximum active safety under all braking conditions. The generous front discs are 320 mm in diameter, the standard size for Aprilia's big bikes, and are complemented by a single 260 mm rear disc.
A sophisticated two channel ABS system maximises the Mana ABS's already impressive levels of active and passive safety by preventing wheel lock on slippery surfaces and improving braking performance.
