A part of the Piaggio Group along with the Vespa brand, the Aprilia SR150 is targeted at the youth who have performance and style as top priorities.
The SR 150 is equipped with a disc brake in the front and drum brake at the rear. The scooter rides on metallic black alloy wheels. At the front is a standard telescopic suspension while the rear gets a single-side coil spring. The headlamps are integrated into the cowl of the fascia like the Honda Dio, but the indicators have been positioned on the handlebar. The Aprilia SR 150 is powered by a 150cc engine, which is derived from the Vespa S150. The 154 cc engine makes 11.4 bhp and 11.5Nm of torque. For the 2018 model year, the SR150 has got an optional part-digital instrument cluster that retains an analogue speedometer but switches everything else to a digital unit. Paired with a downloadable mobile phone app, the features include tracking of the vehicle, and locating it in a parking lot, among other things.
There are new variants available for the SR150 as of 2018: there’s black, blue, and the red/white combination that we’re familiar with. Aadditionally, there is the ‘Race’ version which echoes Aprilia’s racing program designs with the decals. Finally, there’s the Carbon, which is an all-black variant that has faux carbonfibre all over it, and no chrome.
The Aprilia SR 150 is fully localised and is manufactured at the company’s Baramati facility. It competes with the Vespa LX125, Honda Grazia, TVS Ntorq and Suzuki Burgman Street 125. The Aprilia SR 150 is priced at Rs 73,000 onwards (ex-showroom Delhi).
