Revealing the Dorsoduro 900 and Shiver 900, Aprilia announced that the new models benefit from more performance from the new 900cc twin-cylinder engine, a tighter ride and better handling from the refined chassis architecture and the best available technology.

The Dorsoduro 900 is the supermoto model, and the Shiver 900 the naked version.
