Last year we brought to you leaked photos of the 2010 Aprilia Shiver 750, which showed the naked bike getting a facelift from Aprilia. With its official press release on Friday, Aprilia has released more photos and details about the Shiver 750, which confirm our earlier reports. The 2010 Aprilia Shiver 750 looks as expected and features some minor touches like a lower seat, wave brake discs, revised sitting position, and a narrower rear wheel (5.5″ from 6.0″). Aprilia hopes these revisions will help sell a few more Shiver 750′s this year, and clear stock for the next iteration of the Shiver line. How do you think they did? Tech specs and photos after the jump.
