Aprilia EasyRider - July 13, 2011, 11:56 AM

yes I'm back - suffer the mc content bitches


This Easyrider motorcycle concept has been developed by bike designer Roberto Vernile in collaboration with Aprilia, and is a new concept based on the theme of personalisation and characteristic design. The Easyrider concept is designed to be a production bike that takes advantage of the strong image of Italian motorcycles and that can adapt to new styles.

Itís based on the Aprilia Shiver and is made with a completely adjustable chassis where the rider can move the seat, handlebars and foot pegs. The trellis frame has various parts, linked by modular connections that enable this flexibility. The entire set-up of the riding position can be adjusted in various phases so that each individual rider can choose between sportier or more upright positions. The passenger seat adapts to the rider, and is made from Technogel with stow-away footpegs.

The Easyrider model would have Apriliaís ride-by-wire traction control, and the fuel tank is integrated with the front brake and the adjustable parts mean that it can adapt to various storage needs as well, including helmet space, navigation systems, or a larger airbox. The front of the bike is made from perspex and can be adjusted in height and angle, and can be removed and substituted by a smaller windshield for sports riding.

The braking system is another innovation on the Easyrider concept, with the front brakes enabling the use of three different types of brake pads, without needing tools to replace them. The project dates back to 2009 (but has only been made public recently), and is based on the engine and chassis of the Shiver, and would be equipped with the 1200cc twin engine. The idea behind the bike is one of functionality, design and usability, which requires different components to make it functional for each individual rider.

I am fan of the location of the storage trunk. I believe the current Aprilla Shiva or CV or CVT has that storage trunk.
