Honda V4


Honda announced at EICMA that they intend to introduce a new V4 motorcycle in 2010.

Very few details about the new bike have been released, only that it will be powered by Honda’s iconic V4 engine configuration. The Japanese manufacturer is celebrating the 30th anniversary of its V4 engine.

Honda introduced a V4 concept bike in October at Intermot, and many are speculating that the new bike will resemble the futuristic-looking hubless display model.

The official announcement of the new V4 motorcycle does mention the concept bike, but doesn’t confirm that it’s what we’ll be seeing on the showroom floor. The announcement says that the “V4 production model is the result of overwhelming response from customers, media and motorcycle dealers across Europe following the debut of the V4 Concept Model”. Motorcycle.com correspondent Yossef Schvetz didn’t sound too enthused about the concept bike in his Intermot report. We’ll let you know when we find out more about Honda’s new bike.


What do you think? Would you like to see this bike at your local Honda dealership in 2010?

Aprilia SL750 Shiver (Riding





By Lance Oliver

Oh, to be young and stylish and living in Milan. Unfortunately for that envy-worthy young italiano, perhaps ready to trade his Aprilia scooter or RS125 race replica for a full-size streetbike, Aprilia had nothing urban and stylish to offer, except the huge jump to a 1,000cc Tuono or RSV 1000 R.

Aprilia Shiver rear view

Until now.

Freshly revived with support from new owner Piaggio, the Aprilia lineup is expanding. The newest entry is the SL750 Shiver, a completely naked 750cc streetbike just dripping with modern Italian styling. Suddenly, our young milano has a middleweight option without changing brands. And beginning next year, so will young and style-conscious riders from Miami to Minneapolis, because Aprilia is bringing the Shiver to the United States.

The attention paid to styling is obvious from one end of the Shiver to the other: from its twin, triangular exhausts to its gold-colored trellis frame to its molded headlight (apparently designed by Salvador Dalí when he tired of doing paintings of melting clocks).

Aprilia Shiver headlight
Fortunately, there's more to the Shiver than meets the eye.

Its heart is a liquid-cooled, 90-degree V-twin engine. A combination of chain and gears drives the twin camshafts that operate the four valves per cylinder. Aprilia claims the engine will produce 95 horsepower at 9,000 rpm. On a short day ride, the Shiver showed plenty of V-twin-style grunt in pulling out of corners and still revved satisfyingly to five-digit rpm.

The Shiver's most unique feature is a fly-by-wire throttle. The throttle bodies in the fuel injection system are controlled electronically. The engine management unit considers engine speed, gear selected, temperature and atmospheric pressure, as well as the throttle position and rate of opening and closing when deciding just how much fuel to squirt into the twin cylinders. Aprilia said this greater control allowed an even flatter torque curve than what you'd already expect from a mid-size V-twin.

How's it work? Sometimes, especially in the upper midrange, the throttle doesn't give you exactly the response you expect, but the result is not worse, just slightly different. Ride this bike for a few days and you'll forget that electronics, not old-fashioned cables, control fuel flow.

Shiver front brakesIn addition to the high-tech throttle and the attention to styling, you'll find quite a few other upscale touches on the Shiver, such as radial-mount, four-piston front brake calipers with metal-braided lines, the stainless steel exhaust (which includes a catalytic converter and an oxygen sensor for closed-loop precision), an inverted 43mm fork, a hydraulically operated clutch, a comprehensive digital gauge display with adjustable backlighting, and the fat, gold handlebar reminiscent of the one on its big brother, the Tuono. The Shiver may slot into the highly competitive and price-sensitive middle range of the market, but by no measurement does it look or feel cheap.

Gauge clusterThe Shiver does have its quirks, which take a little while to get used to, especially in the switchgear. The headlight switch is on the front of the left-side switchgear housing, operated by your index finger, not your thumb. The engine shutoff and the starter button are incorporated into one switch.

Of course none of the styling, high-tech features, or quirks would matter, either pro or con, if the motorcycle weren't fun to ride. The Shiver is definitely fun.

Narrow and nimble, with a bolt-upright riding position, the Shiver feels like a powerful Supermoto bike. And like a Supermoto, it's ideal for squirting through traffic in an urban setting and yet still holds up well when you slip free of traffic and dive into a curvy backroad.

The suspension is taut enough for those curvy backroads, but not punishing on city potholes. The Sachs rear shock allows adjustment for preload and rebound damping. The 17-inch wheels, in standard sport sizes, allow the rider to choose from a wide variety of tires: Go for stickier grip or longer mileage, according to your preference.
Aprilia rebuilds

It may be too soon to say Aprilia's back, but the company's U.S. arm is confident that its fortunes have bottomed out and the trajectory is now upward.

Aprilia fell into a dire financial situation due to the combination of an expensive and unsuccessful MotoGP race effort (the Aprilia Cube that almost barbequed Colin Edwards) and a slump in the bread-and-butter scooter market in Aprilia's home country of Italy. That led to a purchase of Aprilia in 2004 by Italian company Piaggio, maker of Vespa scooters. Piaggio is now trying to rebuild the brand. The Shiver, filling in the huge gap in Aprilia's streetbike line between its scooters and its 1,000cc sportbikes, is a first step.

There are now 138 Aprilia dealers in the United States, and the company aims to establish a dealer in each of the top 250 markets in the country.

The weak spot in the Shiver's portfolio comes when you're not on city streets or twisted two-lane. The upright position and total lack of wind protection make freeway runs tiring. The gas tank holds just four gallons, but if you're on the open road, you'll need a break from the wind blast after burning a tankful, anyway.

The brakes just plain work well, which you'd expect considering the up-spec components. In addition to the radial-mount, four-piston calipers, Aprilia uses the same 320mm front rotors found on the RSV 1000 R and Tuono 1000 R.

Piaggio sees the Aprilia brand as aimed directly at buyers who want sporty performance and modern styling, which is why you'll find so many upgraded components on the Shiver, even if it is a mid-range model. How will that style (not to mention the name; Italians named this one) play in Peoria?

That remains to be seen. The Shiver won't have an easy time denting the U.S. market, if only for two reasons: dealer network (see sidebar, right) and competition.

Aprilia ShiverAprilia cites the Yamaha FZ6, Kawasaki Ninja 650R and BMW F800S as the Shiver's competitors. They could have mentioned the Ducati Monster S2R 800, the Suzuki SV650 and the new-to-the-market Kawasaki Versys and Triumph Street Triple. In other words, this is a tough class. Only the BMW is more costly than the Aprilia.

But the Shiver is also the only one of that group with tech like the fly-by-wire throttle, it has the power to run with any of its competitors, and it easily matches the Ducati in Italian style.

You won't see one on every street corner. But the Shivers that do make it to the street will definitely win attention, from Milan to Miami.

Jeff Leighton's 1938 EL

The owner of this bike is a committed collector, builder, fabricator, rider and lover of old motorcycles. His quiver includes show-stopping Triumphs, Flatheads and more recently, this Knucklehead. With help from very qualified friends like Frank Kaisler and Wes White, Jeff has some serious talent to lean on. Jeff has been riding this machine for a while and since these photos were taken, it's been completely torn down for paint by The Harpoon. We thought it'd be cool to document it in its rougher, "dry build" form.

The Ducati Monster Challenge

3rd Place: Kyle Brussich
Cupertino, CA ~ Throughout the winter, Ducati searched the country for the coolest Monster in North America. Winning Monsters from eight different IMS shows were selected for the grand finale on March 11th, in Daytona, along with four wildcard bikes that were so exceptional they warranted inclusion.

A celebrity panel of judges including editors from Moto-Euro Magazine, Cycle News, the Desmodromiclub of Rome, Neil Hodgson and Eric Bostrom from Team Ducati Austin and Ducati CEO Michael Lock.







1st Place: Stuart Baker 1st Place: Stuart Baker

Bikes, owners and judges assembled in Daytona to carefully critique each entrant. The bikes ranged in style from vintage inspired to turbocharged performance, making judging difficult because all the bikes were so well crafted. With each bike, one could tell the owner's intentions and what they thought a truly perfect Ducati Monster should be.


In the end, Stuart Baker, who won at the IMS Show in San Francisco, was adjudged to have the most outstanding bike.

Special mention was made by many judges of the purity of purpose and classic café-racer lines' of Stuart's bike. Baker won a brand new, $13,495, 117 HP 2005 Ducati Monster S4R as his vintage styled 1999 Monster 750 took 1st place in front of a large crowd of Ducatisti on a beautiful afternoon in Florida. "It's easy for someone to look at the pictures, and modification lists on the Internet and make judgments about other motorcycles. It is a whole other matter when you are face-to-face with the machines. Each and every motorcycle in the final round of the Monster Challenge was full of thought, great modifications, and a lot of passion. I'm not surprised it took the judges an extra two hours to announce their decisions," commented Stuart.



2nd Place: Chris Nicolaou

























Second place went to Chris Nicolaou of Port Perry, Ontario, who won a trip to the 2005 US MotoGP, featuring the return of Grand Prix racing to the USA and the debut of Ducati's V-4 engined, 216 mph Desmosedici machine. Chris was the only Canadian selected as a finalist and his Monster features an extended swingarm, amazing craftsmanship and a unique style.


Kyle Brussich of Houston, Texas finished on the podium in 3rd place with her heavily modified 2000 Ducati Monster 900. Surprisingly, Kyle was the only female finalist in Daytona despite having many women-owned Monsters compete in the Monster Challenge. She wins a $1,000 Ducati Performance gift certificate.
"Each and every motorcycle in the final round of the Monster Challenge was full of thought, great modifications, and a lot of passion. I'm not surprised it took the judges an extra two hours to announce their decisions," commented Stuart.
