Aprilia SR 125 is a scooter available at a starting price of Rs. 1,23,814 in India. It is available in only 1 variant and 4 colours. The Aprilia SR 125 is powered by 124.45cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 9.78 bhp and a torque of 9.7 Nm. With front disc and rear drum brakes, Aprilia SR 125 comes up with combined braking system of both wheels. This SR 125 scooter weighs 115 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 6 liters.
Aprilia India has launched the updated SR 125 in the Indian market. The new model gets a few styling tweaks over its predecessor. The front fascia features a shaper-looking headlight while the rear gets a redesigned taillight that looks sportier than before. The sporty styling of the new SR 125 is further enhanced by split-style design to the single-piece saddle, a bigger pillion grab rail, and carbon-fibre texture for the front fender, instrument cluster bracket, and the exhaust heatshield. The colour choices include four options – white, blue, grey, and red. The “Aprilia” and “SR125” decals are visible on the front apron, floorboard panel, and rear panel.
The feature list gets an upgrade too, and the new SR 125 benefits from an LED headlight and a fully-digital instrument cluster. The updated display, which is similar to the unit on the SXR 125, comprises a top speed recorder, average speed recorder, tachometer, speedometer, odometer, two trip meters, fuel economy indicator, fuel gauge, engine temperature, and a clock. The new console misses Bluetooth connectivity.
The mechanical specifications remain unaltered and the updated SR 125 continues to use the BS6-compliant, 124.45cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled, three-valve engine that produces 9.78bhp at 7,700rpm and 9.70Nm at 6,000rpm. The motor is linked to a CVT gearbox.
The hardware on the new SR 125 remains similar to its predecessor. Thus, the suspension tasks are handled by telescopic front forks and a single spring at the rear. The anchoring duties are performed by a disc brake at the front and a drum unit at the back. The safety net on the SR 125 includes a combined braking system instead of an antilock braking system on the 160cc range. The scooter rides on 14-inch alloy wheels that are shod in tubeless tyres.
This 125cc scooter rivals the TVS Ntorq 125, Honda Grazia 125, Yamaha RayZR 125, Hero Maestro Edge 125, and the likes in the Indian market.
