    This scooter is mainly for enthusiasts. Priced in the bike category with many first in segment features this scooter can be reliable for those looking for weekend short trips. This scooter is for those who are die hard fans of aprilia ; need performance oriented scooter and those who need to take short trips in weekend. Main attraction is its bike like design at the front and all information digital meter with accessory Bluetooth connectivity. Mileage company claim is 35kmpl. Top speed is 95kmph (which is low for a 160cc bike) but at highways it is low. 75-85kmph can cruise for long time. Boot space is 21litres fuel tank is 7 liters.

    Aprilias are known for their Italian pedigree, sheer performance, bespoke styling and legendary race history. When you buy an Aprilia sxr 160 in India, you suddenly end up feeling overwhelmed by this level of styling and premium that is only expected in the 4 pot bike segment. From the chubby fat, 120 section front and rear tyres which apparently happen to also be a segment-first in the country, to that intricately sculpted front fairing wrapped around those beautifully designed led DRL's and headlight setup, this scooter is the best head turner for that money. But just because it's sold under the 'scooter' badge doesn't mean this behaves like one. Under that broad black seat lies a powerful 160cc single-cylinder engine that produces 11hp and 10.8 nm of torques. Add that to a well modified sr 160 chassis and "slightly" softer suspension setup and what you get is an absolute beast of the scooter. 0 - 50 km/h comes in under 5 seconds.0 to 75 km/h in 10 seconds. With a modest kerb weight of 129 kg's, flat out, it would still do 100kmph effortlessly. Overtaking cars and lorry drivers on good, wide highways is just a throttle turn away. On a scooter. Apart from minor vibrations at the very top end, it feels smooth and stable. The suspension setup is on the stiffer side which provides good high-speed stability. This along with those proportionate tyre's offer massive grip on the tarmac to tackle sharp corners at good speeds. All the bumps and cracks can be easily felt through the handlebars. The only comforting factor is the rear suspension which is set up on the softer side, so the pillion has a more comfortable ride as compared to the rider. The brakes offer a very strong bite. 60 - 0 kmph comes in under 3 seconds with aggressive braking, which now thanks to the included single-channel abs system in the front and rear drum is more reassuring and less likely to land you in a hospital. Within the chaos of a city ride, mild throttle for up to 35 - 45 kmph feels relaxed and smooth with an average mileage of 32 - 35 kmpl. Out on the highways, cruising at a constant 75 - 85 kmph gave a respectable 40 kmpl, which seemed pretty good considering the fact that oil isn't cheap these days. Just like any other Italian bike, this one is no different; it has a sense of character that you can correlate to such as a fellow human being. And just like any other human being this to has some flaws. The seats are awkwardly curved up and if you're on the plus size you often end up slipping down towards the front whenever you jam on the brakes too hard. The dashboard plastic bits and parts could have been fitted neatly. Bluetooth at this premium price point should have been offered as standard. Even the side stand has to be bought separately and fitted on by a mechanic. The floorboard could do well with a gripper rubber mat and the same goes for the pillion footrests. But all these mini flaws add to the tough and bold character of this scooter. Sure, for that price of 1.5 - 1.6 lakhs inr (on-road) you don't get all the clever tech bits like the engine kill switch, park brake, side-stand alarm, idling stop system, silent starter system, etc., nor do you get the vastly spread service network and Assurity that some other notable scooter brands have to offer. What you pay for is an Italian design. You pay for the brand. Italians over the years have built up a very good reputation for designing and building some very high performance and luxury vehicles such as the Lamborghinis, the Ferraris, Maserati, Ducati and the paganism, to name a few. Cut to aprilia, and you realize that this is no less of a luxury statement. Much like the Vespa (also an Italian design) this company Aprilia, too has an incredible history and over the years has evolved developing its own remarkable pedigree, the likes of which can be found in this beautifully crafted Italian machine called the sxr 160. You pay for the exclusivity of riding and owning an Aprilia. And this one is probably the value for money of them all.

    The buying experience was excellent, the excitement of buying new vehicle rose high and bought the bike without much observation to the fact of handle jerks, hard front shockers or unconvincingly high fuel consumption. But later realised that it is a great vehicle for long cruises, occasional long trips through highways. Daily commute with the bike may result in lower back pain.I hope the pros and cons you have already understand if you have read this article up to this length
