Shiver = Pure SEX! :clap:
YEEEES! There was one parked near my work the other day. What an awesome looking bike.Personally I'd go for the Dorsoduro 750 every time... http://www.topspeed.com/motorcycles/motorcycle-reviews/aprilia/2010-aprilia-dorsoduro-750-ar76430.html
Effectively a reproportioned and tweaked Shiver but so much cooler than the Shiver in my mind. Go for the pimped Factory version if you can.
I have had my 09 Dorsoduro for just over 2 yrs now. It has been a great bike, for what it is and the needs that I have. The Shiver and DD share many items, including the motor. The suspension on the DD is a little more adjustable than the Shiver. Regardless, the fork oil needs to be changed unless you weigh 130 lbs or so. You can communte anywhere at nearly any speed all day long on a DD or Shiver. 6K rpms is roughly 85 mph on the stock gearing of the DD. Redline is just over 10K. I have "accidentally" had mine up to 122 on the interstate and it was still pulling.but does the desorororororo or KTM 690 have the ability to commute 40miles round trip 4 times a week?
Sounds like I need to go test ride the shiver. I'm not a fan of boom box plastic motorcycles.
