Aprilia’s Cross Maxi SXR160 Has Been Launched


It costs Rs 23,000 more than the base SR160

  • It is built on the same platform as the SR160.
  • Gets RS660-inspired face and large bodywork.
  • Bookings for the scooter have commenced.

Aprilia India has finally gone and launched its highly-awaited SXR160 maxi-scooter at Rs 1,25,997 (ex-showroom Pune). That makes it almost Rs 23,000 dearer than the base version of the SR160, on which it is based. One can book the scooter from Aprilia dealerships across the country or via the company’s official website for a token amount of Rs 5,000. Deliveries are expected to commence in the first couple of weeks of 2021.

We did spend some time astride the SXR160 recently and found the scooter to be pretty familiar. The 12-inch rims do soften the ride to a certain extent but in terms of delivering on a maxi-scooter, the SXR does fall short. Still, it has some redeeming qualities which you can check out by reading our first impressions here.

Here’s the company’s official press statement:
