For top-level naked bike thrills there’s Aprilia’s V-4-powered Tuono, but what if that power-pumper is slightly intimidating? Behold the Shiver 900. It’s raw and ready to tackle the sweepers or daily routes, but dials it back a few notches to serve as a more approachable platform. And with sport and touring accessories available you aren’t limited in your choice of pavement either. Limited bodywork on this naked bike lets the 896cc V-twin take center stage while the underseat exhausts belt out its tune. An interactive suite of electronics enhances the ride while a sub-$10,000 price sweetens the deal.

When Zack Courts took the 2018 Shiver 900 for a spin, he wrote that it “was redesigned for 2018 with urban mobility in mind. But Aprilia can’t help its sporty roots, and this bike carves through twisty tarmac with plenty of confidence. It’s a stellar commuter or day-tripper.”
