Aprilia SXR 125 Summary

Price: Aprilia SXR 125 price for its variant - SXR 125 Premium starts at Rs. 1,34,501. The mentioned SXR 125 price is the average ex-showroom.

Aprilia SXR 125 is a scooter available in only 1 variant and 4 colours. The Aprilia SXR 125 is powered by 124.45cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 9.48 bhp and a torque of 10.19 Nm. With front disc and rear drum brakes, Aprilia SXR 125 comes up with combined braking system of both wheels. This SXR 125 scooter weighs 129 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 7 liters.

The Aprilia SXR 125 is Piaggio’s new maxi-scooter and essentially the smaller version of the SXR 160 that was launched earlier. With the SXR range, the Italian manufacturer intends to deliver the same sporty character as the SR models but wrapped up in a more practical package.

The SXR 125 looks identical to the SXR 160 and they inarguably look stunning with a seamless blend of maxi and sport scooter styling. The whole body work is dominated by sharp and angular lines. Interestingly, the wide full-LED headlamp of the SXR looks closely similar to that of the RS660 supersport. The LED tail lamp is also quite sleek and fancy. It is available in four colour options including white, red, blue and black.

As attractive it is in terms of design, it is equally practical with a host of features. There’s a large LCD dash that shows a decent amount of information. It also gets a spacious under-seat storage space, a lockable front storage compartment, a seven-litre fuel tank and a USB charging port.

The engine of the SXR 125 is the same unit that does duty in sportier SR 125 and the Storm 125. However, it has been tuned differently for the maxi-scooter. This 125cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled, SOHC, three-valve unit is capable of producing 9.4bhp at 7,600rpm and 9.2Nm at 6,250rpm. Meanwhile, the chassis and suspension components are also similar to the SR, but they are revised to suit the SXR’s character. As opposed to the former’s 14-inch wheels, the SXR rides on smaller 12-inch alloy wheels.

Talking about its competition, considering the displacement and body style of the Aprilia SXR 125, it goes up against the Suzuki Burgman Street 125.

Aprilia SXR 125 Review

  • Good Things

    • Maxi-styling looks extremely attractive
    • Equipped with lots of storage space
    • 125cc offers decent performance

    • Priced quite high 
    • Ride quality needs some improvement
    • Poor sales, service reach

BikeWale's Take

The SXR125 is a premium maxi-scooter under Aprilia brand developed for the Indian market. The scooter offers good performance, some comfort and lots of storage place. But it has really good road presence making it quite aspirational. However, its pricing make it out of reach from most Indian scooter buyers.

Aprilia SXR 125 Expert Opinion

If you’re already spending over a lakh rupee on a scooter, shouldn’t you rather spend Rs 11,000 more and go for the more powerful Aprilia SXR 160? Or, if you’re a fan of maxi-styling and want something much more affordable, wouldn’t the Suzuki Burgman Street 125 make more sense?

Introduction

Aprilia SXR 125 action

It was in December last year that we had ridden Piaggio’s new maxi-scooter, the Aprilia SXR 160. It has many qualities that had really impressed us, except for one major issue – its pricing. At Rs 1.27 lakh (ex-showroom), it’s quite expensive, which is essentially the case with all Piaggio scooters in India. But now, the Italian brand has introduced its smaller version, the SXR 125, which gets identical styling, same features, and nearly the same cycle parts. It obviously runs on a smaller displacement engine. What’s important though, is that it’s around Rs 11,000 cheaper than the SXR 160.

Now, the question here is – if you’re already spending over a lakh rupee on a scooter, shouldn’t you rather spend Rs 11,000 more and go for the more powerful Aprilia SXR 160?

Or, if you’re a fan of maxi-styling and want something much more affordable, wouldn’t the Suzuki Burgman Street 125 make more sense? We try to find out the answers to these questions by spending some time with the new Aprilia SXR 125. 

The Styling

Right Side View

As I told you, the styling of the SXR 125 is identical to its 160cc iteration and we are glad for that. I mean the flamboyance that it carries is difficult to match for any other scooter in the market. Piaggio likes to call this design ‘Cross Maxi’ as it's a beautiful blend of maxi and sporty bodywork.

Aprilia SXR 125 Head Light

The front fascia of the SXR 125 is heavily inspired by Aprilia’s supersport, the RS660. It sports a wide front apron that houses a wide and sleek full-LED headlamp with DRLs and turn indicators. Typical of a maxi-scooter, it also gets a tall windscreen and a long tail section with a radical-looking LED tail lamp below a sturdy grab rail.

The Package

Aprilia SXR 125 Instrument Cluster

The Aprilia SXR 125 is decently equipped with modern features. One of the highlights is the large LCD dash that shows a lot of data in a clean layout and starts up with a dramatic animation. The list of information on offer includes a speedometer, tachometer, odometer, two trip meters, fuel gauge, fuel range, real-time fuel efficiency, a temperature indicator, and a clock. Although it’s impressive, the low placement of this unit makes it difficult to read when you're wearing a full-face helmet.

The display can also be accompanied by a Bluetooth connectivity module as an optional accessory. But it doesn't give access to navigation or message and call notifications.

Aprilia SXR 125 Front Glove Box/Seat Open Switch

Piaggio has not only bestowed it with fancy bits but there are some practical features as well. At the front, there's a lockable glove box that opens up by pushing in the key. On the inside, there are two small compartments, one of which has a USB charger. You get a luggage hook as well. The under-seat storage area has an impressive capacity of 21litres. Now, a full-face helmet won't fit in here but you can easily stuff in a half-face helmet. 

Aprilia SXR 125 Front Wheel

As I mentioned in the beginning, it gets the same hardware as the bigger SXR 160. So it rides on 12inch alloy wheels that are shod with 120/70 section tyres at both ends. All other components like the telescopic forks, the monoshock, and the disc-drum brake combination are also the same. What's different though is that the SXR 125 gets a combined braking system, unlike the 160’s ABS.

Aprilia SXR 125 Engine From Left

Coming to the aspect which is different from the SXR 160- the engine. This one is powered by a 124.45cc, three-valve engine that produces 9.38bhp of power and 9.2Nm of peak torque. This is essentially the same unit that is employed in the sportier SR 125 but the tuning is slightly different depending on the weight.

The Ride

Aprilia SXR 125 action

The big size maxi-scooters that are available in the international markets are extremely comfortable. But that's not the case with the SXR. It's just like a regular scooter with the handlebar close to you and the footboard being pretty cramped. Even the seat could do with a slightly different design. The strange positioning of the centre hump separating the rider and pillion section results in you sliding ahead every time you brake. And if a person as tall as me (5 feet 11 inches) sits even slightly ahead, the knees brush against the front panel. I had a hard time finding the sweet spot. 

Aprilia SXR 125 action

As you get going, off the line, the SXR125 feels a bit lethargic but starts getting lively as the speeds rise. Roll-on acceleration is quick enough to pull off overtakes in traffic. Although it doesn't surprise you at any point, the engine feels adept to be enjoyed in the city. Once you reach the speeds of about 70kmph, it’s also comfortable staying there. And as was expected, it feels a bit sluggish as compared to its 160cc sibling, but the difference isn't substantial.

Aprilia SXR 125 action

Aprilia scooters never disappoint on the handling front and the SXR 125 is no different. It responds to your steering inputs with utmost proficiency and changes directions swiftly. It's really fun to flick around in the city. May it be taking tight turns or attacking long sweeping corners, the SXR takes it all in its stride with great agility. 

Aprilia SXR 125 action

One of the reasons for the SXR's precise handling is its stiff suspension setup which takes a toll on its ride quality to some extent. The damping feels quite firm on almost all kinds of undulations. But thankfully, it never felt rigid enough to really hurt my back.

As quick it is in changing directions, it drops anchor equally strongly. While the front has a tremendous bite, the rear drum takes a bit of squeezing the lever. That said, the combined braking setup works flawlessly by preventing the rear wheel from locking up for the most part.

The Conclusion

Front View

The Aprilia SXR 125 feels premium, exotic and quite special, which is the case with most of the Piaggio products. But the SXR also brings practicality into the mix with some useful features. It's also fun to ride with a fairly potent engine and amazing handling dynamics. 

Where it could do better is in terms of ride quality which should have been a bit plusher. It could also do with a different seat design, an external fuel filler cap, and Bluetooth connectivity as standard.

Right Rear Three Quarter

Now, all things said and done, the Aprilia SXR 125 actually makes sense over the 160. Yes, there's a difference in engine performance but that's not to the extent that the 125 can be eliminated from the equation since this is also adequately quick for the city. 

But if we were to keep the exclusivity and premium appeal aside, the Suzuki Burgman Street 125 is a maxi-styled scooter that's much more affordable and easier to live with. I mean, doesn’t it sound enticing to have better fuel efficiency, a wider service reach, and about Rs 35,000 lesser price tag than the Aprilia?

      Akshay Bangera

      I have had a good experience with Aprilia in terms of use and servicing. The performance considering a 125 cc engine is phenomenal and the service centers are quiet and not troublesome at all. You get personalized services considering there are lesser Aprilia models on the road. That for me is the best part. So overall, a damn sweet ride.

      Best in class in looks but parts are not available

      1 year ago


      Ateeque

      1 buying experience was good but not the best as at the time of delivery there was some colour fade and the front visor was cracked.
      2. Riding experience is best.. It has comfort and mileage but very less power...
      3 looks are the best... Best in class in terms of looks.
      4 service is the worst, service centers are very less and they do not even have parts available. They do not even counter sales.
      5 pros are looks and mileage.
      Cons are after-sale service and availability of parts. Very less power.

      Ganesan Raamakrishnan

      The best maxi scoter for me. Because my height is 6.2feet. Head light is very powerful. Riding experience is very good. I heard small Engine noise in riding faster. Service cost is reasonable. Brake is very powerful and genuine. Suspension is little bit hard. I disappointed with There is no Bluetooth connection. Namaste thank you

      Best looking and comfortable maxi scooter in the market

      2 years ago


      Dinesh Kumar

      The best maxi scooters in India till date. Riding comfort, handling, brakes and ergonomics are just amazing. You will definitely get a premium scooter feel while riding this and this is the most good looking scooters till date in the market. It will give you more attention and the people will turn their heads while this machine is on the road. Believe me I got more attention and few random people were crowded and asking me about the scooter and its specifications. It looks damn stylish and the build quality is very good and premium. It is the more comfortable scooter that i rode till date. Definitely recommended for long travels.

      Good scooty but price could have been better.

      2 years ago


      Sahilrao

      I am a guy whose height is 6.1 feet. I wanted a scooter which suits me, because conventional scooters were not suiting me that well as compared to maxi scooters. So I was confident to go with a maxi scooter & I had only 2 options burgman & SXR. The SXR 160 was pretty expensive for me. I couldn't afford while the 125 was getting at a price of 1,23,000 (on road) which is still expensive. I made my final call towards Aprilla..
      Why? looks, one of the best till date in the market. Aprilla branding, a Italian brand which is well known for its racing capabilities. Safety, trust me the brakes are damn good & build quality, one of the most rigid & strong build quality I have seen in any scooter.
      Now talking about the experience, this scooty stands out for sure everyone will look once behind to see this scooty & trust me that feeling is too good. Riding quality, I accept it has a stiffer suspension but if you take it a bit slow, it will just glide upon the speed breakers. Power, initially it's a bit lazy but once picked up then it won't stop.
      Talking about the service center, in Mumbai you won't have any issue with regards to servicing as they have a lot of service centers. From my home it's hardly 10 mins.
      My experience was pretty good with the service people, they were very polite & yeah offered me a glass of coffee with some cookies when I was sitting in the customer lounge. Yes some parts are a bit expensive like just for a sticker i paid 500 rupees which is way too expensive I believe.
      Talking about mileage before 1st service it was giving me around 30 km/l & after servicing now its giving me around 38 km/l.
      But yet overall experience was pretty good for me & if anyone wants a scooter which stands out & which has a very great looks some mileage then can go for it

      At that price best maxi scooter in India

      3 years ago


      Jyot Singh

      Riding experience is very good. Like handling, pickup, speed, breaks
      All are good in this scooter. There is a servicing problem in small cities because lack of showroom. Overall performance is very good. Design is very attractive but there is a weak point is fuel filing problem in this scooter. Otherwise all are good
