Aprilia SR 160 Summary

Price: Aprilia SR 160 price for its variant - SR 160 Premium is estimated at Rs. 1,32,734. The price for the other variants - SR 160 Carbon and SR 160 Race are Rs. 1,35,456 and Rs. 1,42,087. The mentioned SR 160 prices are the average ex-showroom.

Aprilia SR 160 is a scooter available in 3 variants and 3 colours. The Aprilia SR 160 is powered by 160.03cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 11.11 bhp and a torque of 13.44 Nm. With front disc and rear drum brakes, Aprilia SR 160 comes up with anti-locking braking system. This SR 160 scooter weighs 118 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 6 liters.

The new Aprilia SR 160 has been launched in the Indian market with several styling and feature upgrades. The updated scooter benefits from a new LED headlight and a fully-digital instrument cluster. At the back, the updated model gets a redesigned taillight that looks sportier than before. The new SR 160 range will be available in white, blue, grey, red, and matt black colours.

The updated console on the new SR 160, 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 new scooter continues to use a BS6-compliant 160.03cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled, three-valve motor that makes 10.86bhp at 7,600rpm and 11.6Nm at 6,000rpm. The engine is linked to a CVT gearbox.

The suspension hardware on all variants of the scooter includes telescopic front forks and a single spring at the rear. The braking tasks are handled by a disc brake at the front and a drum unit at the back while the safety net includes a single-channel antilock braking system. All variants use 14-inch alloy wheels on both ends that are shod in tubeless tyres.

Aprilia SR 160 Review

  • Good Things

    • 160cc motor is quite powerful
    • CVT gearbox performs flawlessly
    • Excellent handling
  • Could be Better

    • Suspension setup is too stiff
    • Priced quite high
    • Poor service reach

BikeWale's Take

The SR 160 is the next iteration of the SR150. It is BS6 compliant and gets a revised power figure. In terms of design, it’s quite aspirational. When it comes to performance, the SR160 is quite good. But the overall suspension setup is stiff that makes it a poor choice for city roads. Plus, it’s priced quite high, which makes it compete with some of the best premium 150cc motorcycles. 

Aprilia SR 160 Expert Opinion

Is it worth that additional premium of Rs 11,000 over its outgoing iteration? Let’s find out.

Introduction

Aprilia SR 160 action

Scooters are usually associated with convenience, ease of riding, and everyday usability in India. However, there are certain exceptions that bring fun and excitement to the mix, and the Aprilia SR 160 is one such example. 

It had started its life with a 150cc engine in 2016. This was followed by a bump of 10cc during the BS6 transition last year, besides the introduction of new graphics. However, Piaggio had left all the other aspects of the scooter majorly unchanged, until now. For 2021, the Italian brand has rolled out the facelifted version of the SR160 with a couple of revisions in terms of design and features, and with a price hike of around Rs 11,000.

So is it worth that additional premium over its outgoing iteration? Let’s find out.

The Visuals

The most prominent change has come in the form of a slightly altered design. A minor nip and tuck have been executed in the front end by bestowing the apron with more angular lines and deeper contours. At the back, the single-piece seat has been replaced by what looks like a split seat but is a single-piece unit with a cut at the centre. Piaggio has also included a larger and more angular grab rail. The result is an overall profile that looks slightly sportier and more muscular than before.

Aprilia SR 160 Head Light

The new SR 160 also gets a re-designed headlamp which accommodates a high-lumen LED headlight and DRLs now; a departure from the previous halogen setup. And not just that, the previous rather simple-looking tail lamp has now been replaced by a radical 'X' shaped unit which only adds to its visual appeal.

The Package

Aprilia SR 160 Instrument Cluster

The SR 160 was quite basic in terms of features but Piaggio has upped the ante with this version. Gone is the older semi-digital console and it has made way for a new large LCD unit. Well, it's not really new because this is the same display we have seen in the SXR 160. This is a comprehensive unit that shows a lot of data and is also easily legible. Although it doesn't get Bluetooth connectivity as standard, you can have it for an additional cost of Rs 2,500.

Aprilia SR 160 Bike Seat

The SR 160 has been left majorly untouched on the mechanical front. It continues to be powered by the same 160.03cc, air-cooled, three-valve engine that churns out 10.84bhp of power and 11.6Nm of peak torque. Facilitating it with taut handling and stability are the same 14-inch alloy wheels accompanied by telescopic forks and a preload-adjustable monoshock. A disc-drum combination handles the braking chores. 

The Ride

Aprilia SR 160 action

Starting with seating comfort, the Aprilia SR 160 offers a traditional upright riding stance that never feels uncomfortable. The seat might feel a bit firm initially but softens a bit after spending a few minutes on it.

The engine of the SR 160 is still one of the strongest traits of this scooter. It's so much different from most of the easy-going scooters we see on the road and offers a decently quick and punchy performance. The SR 160 is fairly quick off the line and keeps pulling away cleanly at city speeds. It's pretty fun to ride in the city due to brisk low-end acceleration but the pull tapers off as you get past 60-70kmph. Also, under hard acceleration, be ready for some harsh vibrations on the footboard.

The scooter can even cruise at around 80kmph on the highway without much stress on the engine. But overtaking at this speed requires a lot of planning and contemplation. The whole riding experience is accentuated by the throaty and rough exhaust note which gives it a character of its own.

Aprilia SR 160 action

Complementing its potent engine is the sharp handling of the SR 160. Reiterating what has already been said so many times before — the handling of this scooter is quite close to a motorcycle. That’s mainly because of its rigid chassis and large 14-inch wheels. The SR is light on its feet and changes directions pretty quickly. Most of our time spent with the scooter was in the city where it hugely impressed us with its agility. Although we couldn't show it some nice tight and sweeping corners, we are sure it will be pretty engaging and enjoyable there as well. 

Aprilia SR 160 Front Wheel

And when it's time to stop the scooter, the brakes of the SR turn out to be very proficient for the job. The front brake has tremendous bite and sheds speed in no time. Even the ABS kicks in at appropriate times. This is coupled with a fantastic feel from the lever. It's almost the same story with the rear brake as well, which offers a great balance of bite and progression.

Aprilia SR 160 action

The stiff ride quality of the SR was a major issue back in its BS4 form. Then with the BS6 transition, Piaggio worked on making it a bit plusher. However, it continues to be uncomfortable as the road conditions deteriorate. As the scooter goes over sharp bumps, rumblers, or deep potholes, all the shock is transferred to your back for the most part. Even increasing the speed doesn't help. As for the front, it feels even more jarring and crude, hampering the overall ride.

Aprilia SR 160 Floorboard

In the quest of giving the SR 160 a sporty and minimalist look, Aprilia has compromised on the utility front. The footboard of the scooter continues to be a cramped unit and it's difficult to accommodate things like a backpack with your feet occupying most of the space. And the under-seat storage space isn't very impressive either. But on the positive side, Piaggio has installed a boot lamp and a USB charger under the seat. 

Verdict

Aprilia SR 160 thumbnail

The Aprilia SR 160 was already an exciting and unique product. It incorporates a powerful engine, its handling is sharp and precise, and the brakes are phenomenal. And with the new updates, it has become even more desirable. It’s undoubtedly priced on the higher side, more so after the recent hike which is substantial. But then Piaggio has always intended to place its products on the premium side of the spectrum.

Unfortunately, there’s some bitterness in the whole recipe. The scooter is so focused on delivering fun and excitement, that it demands you to compromise on convenience and practicality like a comfortable ride and enough storage space. To conclude, the SR 160 is majorly for those riders whose requirements and intentions are very clear — to own an outright sport scooter.

      Very good build

      Mehul Kumawat

      I had to buy it online because the showroom was very far from my place. The riding experience was quite a notch.
      The looks of the bike were exceptional as it is made to be in the hands of college-going students. Service doesn't cost much but the maintenance fee is a bit too much. The bike is made to rock.

      I brought a bike 2 years back, riding experience good and the performance is good, but they need to improve the shockers front and back hard while riding the bike, if we talk about the bike looks is too good and it comes with 160ccc and pricing is too high if we talk about bike servicing and maintenance you will do it under 2k.

      The most useless service, I bought the vehicle around 2 and a half years ago and every single month I go to the service center at least twice with a new problem. And the service is so expensive. The parts are never available. I gave my vehicle for a problem checkup and they made the situation worse and gave it back and they are asking a lot to fix the problem. They induce the pain and ask you to pay to fix it. The worst decision ever made in my life. Regret 100% buying that vehicle.

      Don't even think of buying this, instead buy a 450x or an aerox 155, way more reliable and worth your money.
