Aprilia SR150 [2017-2018] Summary

Aprilia is a brand that has a rich racing heritage, and the company has applied that to the SR150 – it is a sporty scooter whose introductory pricing is not premium at all.

A part of the Piaggio Group along with the Vespa brand, the Aprilia SR150 is targeted at 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.

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. The Aprilia SR 150 is priced at Rs 73,000 onwards (ex-showroom Delhi).

Aprilia SR150 [2017-2018] Review

  • Good Things

    • Overall performance is impressive
    • Excellent handling attributes
    • Tyres offer ample grip
  • Could be Better

    • Offers stiff ride quality
    • Expensive to maintain
    • Small floorboard

BikeWale's Take

The Aprilia SR 150 is a revolution of sorts which has upped the ante of the Indian scooter market. The 150cc engine coupled with light weight makes the scooter profoundly agile and fast. The large wheels and underbone chassis combine to lend you a confidence-aspiring ride.

Aprilia SR150 [2017-2018] Expert Opinion

The Aprilia SR150 is good, but luckily for us enthusiasts of the brand, it wanted to have the quickest scooter around, in line with the badge on it and all it stands for. This thought process led to the creation of the SR 150 Race – a model that sits above the standard SR150, and it looks better and goes better!

What is it?

The SR150 is good. So good that two of our team members booked it before even riding it - however, it wasn't without its flaws. For example, if it's going to have such a hard-edged ride, it should also have the acceleration to match. Piaggio has been listening to those of us who wanted more, and here's the result, the Aprilia SR150 Race -  a variant that sits above the standard SR150. 

How does it ride?

One of the major shortcomings of the SR150 has been fixed on the Race edition – the rear brake. It works, has enough power and bite to stop the scooter without any help from the front brake and there’s also a decent amount of feedback.  

Powering the SR150 Race is the same 150cc single-cylinder motor which produces 10.4bhp at 7650rpm and 11.4Nm at 5000rpm. This engine is known for its quick acceleration and acceptable top speed. But Piaggio went on and changed the gear ratios of the CVT to make the Race edition a bit faster from rest. Piaggio claims that the scooter is one second faster than the standard SR150 in a standard 400 metre drag race. This change has made the Race edition marginally quicker from rest and in roll-on acceleration, which is quite useful in city traffic. 

Other than this, nothing has changed on the SR150 Race. The ride is still so stiff that the handle still jars your hands, and your back will still need a massage. The plus point of this suspension setup is the handling. Just point the SR150 Race in the chosen direction and the scooter will obey without any disappointment. However, it requires smooth roads for this to happen - a bumpy road is accompanied by a drop in confidence and therefore, pace. 

Anything else should I know?

The Italian manufacturer has taken some effort to get the SR150 Race cosmetically right. This scooter is dipped in a new grey shade and over that, the company has used up a lot of MotoGP-inspired graphics. Green body graphics on the fascia and side are now present. The 14-inch wheels are red which give it outstanding character. To go with the wheels, the Italian manufacturer has painted the rear spring red too. There’s also the motorcycle-like gold finish on the front brake calliper. 

We have also discovered that the SR150 Race will not get a performance racing kit which includes a ‘Race Boom’ muffler and change in carburettion. The extra performance will be derived from a richer air-fuel mixture alone. 

Why should I buy one?

If you’re not a fan of the white or black SR150s, the Race paint scheme looks outstanding. The RS-GP inspired graphics do add more flavour and glamour. There are no additional features, or things that can be showed off to the standard SR150 buyers. 

Where does it fit in?

Just like the standard SR150 trim, the Aprilia SR150 Race edition doesn’t have any direct rival. At Rs 70,288 (ex-showroom Mumbai), this sporty scooter is Rs 9584 cheaper than the most affordable Vespa – the SXL 125. At the other end, there’s the Honda Activa 125 which is Rs 3916 cheaper than the SR150 Race at Rs 66,312 (ex-showroom Mumbai).

      Aprilia sr 150 review by a daily commuter

      3 years ago


      Pratham

      The buying process was easy there was no hassle like TVS the ride quality was fine could have been better but the cornering is a piece of cake. The 0-60 is very quick when compared to Vespa but above 60 is struggles a bit the service is a little experience when compared to Honda or TVS the price is like Vespa.
      Pros-1.) stylish 2.) bakes a awesome3.) corners like a champ. 4.) the wheels are of 14inch and a grippe.
      Cons-1.)lacks in practicality, 2.) storage is very less, 3.) the suspension is still, 4.) the price is high.

      Its all about performance & looks

      Pandit N

      This Italian bird is too fast. Very impressed by the pickup of this bike. I have been using the face lift model for past 5 months. The engine seems to be refined with less vibrations than older model. Handling is too good and its impressive in the city traffic. Braking is also up to the mark. Only thing is the less mileage, but considering its a 150 cc performance scooter its more than okay.Led indicators and led headlamp is missing. It would be great if they provide led projectors at this price tag.Current headlamp illumination is not sufficient for night rides. This is the biggest con of this scooter.

      I have been riding past 1 years. Vehicle is too good. Pickup is awesome. Build quality is very good. This can take any 150 cc bike head on. Those who are looking for mileage then please give pass for this vehicle. Maintenance is very low.This is the only crossover scooter in the indian market currently available. It gives a feeling of a bike and is convenient as a scooter.14 inch wheels takes on bad roads smoothly.The new 2018/19 model has digital meter, adjustable shock absorber and tubeless tires from mrf. Very good and comfortable ride with nice road grip. Morning self start needs choke because headlights starts automatically. The looks and design of the scooter is simply awesome. This is a premium scooter with 150 & 125cc option.

      Pathetic suspension. Broke my back

      5 years ago


      Mukesh Sabde

      1. Sinhgad road showroom pune was trying to sell me the scratched product. They had good planning of this by showing me the bike in the evening low light. Rejected the product and asked for another one.2. Pathetic suspension. This bike gave me life time back pain. I'm taking the physiotherapy currently. Worst bike for them whose work is in sitting position for more than 6-7hr.3. Look is good. Very good pickup. Average is little low but that's fine as it is 150cc. 4* for only looks n performance. 4. Worst experience in the showroom every time. I stopped servicing from the showroom even few free servicing were left and started servicing with local mechanics.5. Pros: style, look, pickup, compact. cons: suspensions (pathetic), average (32)-that's not bad for me. Service charges becomes little high bcz of complicated internal design like wirings n settings, it takes much time of mechanic which force them to charge more money which results in higher servicing charges.

      The price was much more when compared to other gearless scooter.... But sr 150 has a amazing feeling and comfortable ride. It is exactly a sport moto scooter with excellent power. Seats were small for a 2 big fat people.. But its looks awesome. Maintenance was low... Servicing is good co operations from company.
