Goodbye Biffer
« on: 05 July, 2020, 04:56:28 PM »
I have decided to sell the Biffer and have jumped on the Italian band wagon.

I am now the proud owner of an Aprilia Shiver 900.

Didn't need the touring space for two as the missus has refused to get on it, so thought I would buy something that suits just me!!

Thanks for all your help on this forum!!

Toon!

Enjoy your new ride. I’ve recently sold mine and now have a Tracer 700 as l needed to get something lighter which this is. CBF was a great bike and l miss it already. Good luck

The biffer was faultless, just a bit excessive for my needs. Would always recommend one!!

I am now the proud owner of an Aprilia Shiver 900.

Is the Aprilia any easier to handle than the Honda ? ! I thought the cbf1000fac was easy to ride and felt planted and stable with good fuelling, ok suspension, good brakes, low seat ,good big engine - I am sort of regretting selling mine !

The Aprilia is a whole different experience, I loved the biffer, it was superb, I just wanted something a bit more "chuckable" I may return to a Biffer at some point.

The V-Twin is a revelation, the ride modes are nice to have, but it does feel like a 250 motocross bike to sit on!!!

No regrets...........Yet

I did the opposite: from a Shiver750 to the CBF1000

I think you will miss many things: fuel range, smoothness, ergonomics, power...

But it is your bike. Enjoy that Shiver!
