Aprilia India has announced the launch of the updated SR 125 in our market to rival the likes of TVS Ntorq 125, Honda Grazia 125, Yamaha RayZR 125, and the Hero Maestro Edge 125. The latest iteration of this 125cc scooter gets several upgrades and here we list the top five highlights of the new Aprilia SR 125.
The latest iteration of Aprilia SR 125 features a few styling tweaks over its predecessor. The front fascia, for example, gets a shaper-looking headlight. At the back, the scooter gets a redesigned taillight that looks sportier than before. Also enhancing the sporty styling of the scooter is the split-style design to the single-piece saddle and a bigger pillion grab rail. Lastly, the new Aprilia SR 125 gets carbon-fibre texture for the front fender, instrument cluster bracket, and exhaust heatshield.
The new Aprilia SR 125 is available in four colours - White, Blue, Grey, and Red. The “Aprilia” and “SR125” decals are visible on the front apron, floorboard panel, and rear panel.
Apart from styling revisions, Aprilia India has also updated the feature list on SR 125. The front, for example, gets an LED headlight. The updated cockpit now uses a fully-digital instrument cluster that is similar to the unit on the SXR 125. The new console packs information such as 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 125cc variant of the SR series packs safety net in the form of a combined braking system instead of the antilock braking system as on the 160cc range.
The mechanical specifications retain the BS6-compliant, 124.45cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled, three-valve engine that produces 9.78bhp at 7,700rpm and 9.70Nm at 6,000rpm. The motor is linked to a CVT gearbox.
The hardware on the new SR 125 remains similar to its predecessor. Thus, the suspension tasks are handled by telescopic front forks and a single spring at the rear. The anchoring duties are performed by a disc brake at the front and a drum unit at the back. The scooter rides on 14-inch alloy wheels that are shod in tubeless tyres.
