Aprilia SR 150 Race Edition details out
Aprilia updates its SR150 line-up with a new colour scheme
Aprilia SR 150 Race Edition
Aprilia SR 150 Race Edition will be launched on February 9. The scooter gets mostly cosmetic updates, such as a new grey colour with red & green body graphics, a gold-coloured front brake caliper, red alloy wheels and a red spring for the rear shock absorber.
Engine remains same.
Aprilia SR 150 Standard
We in India associate a lot of things with Italian two wheelers, but affordability is definitely not one among them. This is why our jaws dropped when Aprilia priced their next product under 1 lakh rupess.
Aprilia SR150 is what we are talking about and it is a scooter. It was completely designed in Italy and will be produced at Piaggio’s Baramati plant in Maharashtra. Piaggio already sells Vespa scooters in India.
Aprilia SR 150- Price
The Aprilia SR 150 is priced at Rs. 68,806/- in India (ex-showroom, Delhi).
Aprilia SR 150- Launch date
Update: Now launched
The Aprilia SR 150 will be launched in India on August, 2016.
|Confirmed launch date||August 22, 2016|
Aprilia SR 150- Specification
The scooter gets a 150cc single cylinder engine delivering 12 bhp of power and 11 Nm of torque, mated to a CVT unit. This is the same mill doing duty on the Vespa 150, but is claimed to be lighter.
Suspension duties are done by telescopic forks at front and monoshock at rear. A 220mm disc and 140mm drum brakes are provided at front and rear respectively. The wheels are 14” and gets 120/70 tyres.
Aprilia SR 150- Design
Talking about the design, there is definitely ‘Aprilia’ in It. It is sporty, youthful and a welcome change from the matureness of Vespa in the premium range. The fairing is sharp, and the front gets great looking headlamps and integrated indicators. The sides and the rear look good too, but I would have loved a bigger Aprilia logo/decal there (similar to the first image).
The demand for scooters is ever increasing in India, with first half of 2016 itself showing 20% gain. We are expecting the SR 150 to perform really well in the country, at least in the introductory phase.
