Aprilia showcased the SR 125 at the Auto Expo 2018. The SR 125 is based on the same platform as the SR 150 and looks identical, albeit for redesigned stickers. It is powered by a smaller, 125cc motor borrowed from Vespa and is priced at Rs 65,310 (ex-showroom Pune).
The Aprilia SR150 Race has been launched at a price of Rs 70,061 ex-showroom Pune. The changes are mainly cosmetic. The Race edition comes with a new Maze Grey paint with the livery inspired by Aprilia’s MotoGP bike, the RS-GP. Earlier, the scooter was available in white or black only. The engine specs remain unchanged, it’s still powered by a 154.4cc engine which puts out 11.5PS at 7,000rpm and peak torque of 11.5Nm at 5,500rpm. It does feature a retuned CVT gearbox for better acceleration. It also features a new exhaust muffler. A race kit is also available for a premium between Rs 3,000 and 5,000. The Aprilia SR 150, priced at Rs 65,000 ex-showroom Delhi, changed the perception that we have about scooters that they aren’t as fun to ride as motorcycles. With its sharp and sporty styling, the Italian scooter also brought a fresh breath of air in an otherwise monotonously designed scooters that are available.
I’ve ridden the standard SR 150 in Delhi but wasn’t quite convinced with its daily usage capabilities. Does the SR 150 Race come across as any different?
The SR 150 was quick to become a hot favourite with its sportiness, and is now available in an even sportier avatar. We put it through a thorough road test to see just how sportier it is.
The Aprilia SR150 now gets a sportier variant in the form of the SR 150 Race. But are the design and performance updates worth the extra money?
The Italian scooter is among the most striking scooters on sale in India. With its sharp lines and flashy graphics, the Aprilia SR 150 demands your attention even more so in the SR 150 Race version which gets the stunning MotoGP livery. The large 14-inch front wheel also gives the moto-scooter a stance like no other scooter and the sporty design is among the highlights of the scooter. The Aprilia scooter gets a semi-digital console and pass light switch, while the under seat storage space is shallow.
The SR 150 is offered in two variants but the 154.8cc air cooled single cylinder engine is same on both the scooters. The motor delivers 10.5PS of power and 11.4Nm of torque. On the Aprilia SR 150 Race, the transmission has been tweaked to offer quicker acceleration but the top speed of the stock SR 150 is higher. The SR 150 Race clocked a time of 6.89 seconds in our 0-60kmph acceleration tests. Braking is done by a disc brake at front and a drum unit at the back. The scooter runs on 14-inch alloy wheels shod with tubeless tyres.
Honda Activa 125: The Honda Activa 125, although low on displacement, can give the Aprilia SR 150 a tough fight with its velvety and refined motor. The Activa 125 also gets better features and is more spacious too, but loses out on the visual appeal, given its conservative styling.
Suzuki Access 125: The new Access 125 isn’t any more the ugly duckling it once was and is among the better looking scooters on sale in India. What really makes the Access 125 click is its performance as it offers good acceleration and is a joy around corners. The fact that it offers fantastic ride quality makes it among the best scooters one can buy.
If you’re looking for a sporty and fun to ride scooter, then the Aprilia SR 150 is the one to go for. The sharp and sporty styling makes it more appealing and we will urge to shell out the marginal premium and go for the MotoGP livery inspired SR 150 Race variant. Fuel efficiency and refinement isn’t the Aprilia’s forte, while the ride quality is also stiff, but it’s a hoot around corners and has a fun element associated with it.
