Aprilia SXR 125 is a scooters available at a starting price of Rs. 1,17,306 in India. It is available in only 1 variant and 4 colours. The SXR 125 is powered by 124.45cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 9.38 bhp and a torque of 9.2 Nm. With front disc and rear drum brakes, Aprilia SXR 125 comes up with combined braking system of both wheels.
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.
