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.
