The SR 150 ruled our hearts with its performance and handling capabilities. And now the SR 125 is here, promising us the same kind of character while being lighter on the pocket. So does it live up to our expectations?
The Aprilia SR 150 brought with it a breath of fresh air for those aching to own and experience a sporty scooter in India.

Aprilia SR 125 Highlights
There's no denying the fact that the Aprilia SR 125 looks exactly similar to its elder sibling, the SR 150. However, it does gain some subtle changes, such as the 'SR 125' monikers, some stickers as compared to the SR 150 and a new wider rear section. In terms of features, it packs a two-pod analogue console, a higher set grab rail, wider seat and 14-inch wheels.
Aprilia SR 125 Specifications
Powering the scooter is the same engine that is seen on the Vespa 125. This 124.7cc air-cooled, single-cylinder motor churns out 9.52PS of power and 9.9Nm of torque. The telescopic front and rear monoshock is as stiff as seen on the SR 150, while braking is done via a 220mm front disc and a 140mm rear drum setup, which has a strong brite.
Aprilia SR 125 Competitors
TVS Ntorq 125: When it comes to performance, the NTorq 125 feels fairly close to the Aprilia SR 125. However, it excels in terms of practicality by offering a plethora of features such as a digital instrument console with Bluetooth connectivity, navigation assist, a mobile charging socket, a softer suspension setup and more. While offering all this, it also undercuts the SR 125 by a great margin at Rs 58,750 (ex-showroom Delhi).
Honda Grazia: The Grazia offers admirable build quality and typical Honda engine refinement. It isn’t as feature rich as the NTorq though. But it does come with LED headlights and a digital console. Underseat storage is admirable and the floorboard space is also better than the SR and the NTorq. On the downside, the front suspension setup feels a bit too stiff while the rear gets jumpy with a pillion on board. In terms of features, it checks all the boxes when it comes to convenience and practicality. At Rs 63,415 (ex-showroom Delhi), it undercuts the Aprilia marginally but is almost Rs 4,500 costlier than the NTorq. Unfortunately, it doesn’t offer the fun factor of the NTorq or the Aprilia. Neither does it offer the practicality of the Suzuki Access.
Suzuki Access 125: The Suzuki Access 125 sports the most mature look of the lot. It feels peppy, has decent enough features for a family scooter and is the best of the lot when it comes to suspension setup and ride quality with the NTorq ranking second on these fronts. Braking too feels confident and space is ample, on both the floorboard and under the seat.
The SR 125 is more affordable than the SR 150 not only in terms of pricing but running cost as well, thanks to its increased fuel efficiency. But, while the SR 150’s extremely harsh ride quality and lack of practicality were acceptable for the levels of performance it offered, on the SR 125, it’s simply impossible to justify. If you are looking for a scooter that offers thrills and performance, it makes sense to shell out Rs 4,000 more and go for the Aprilia SR 150. But if you need the practicality that the 125cc segment offers, then you’re better off looking at its competition.
