Aprilia pulled a rabbit out of a hat at the 2016 Auto Expo as it launched the SR 150 scooter in the Indian market. Pegged by its manufacturer as India’s first “sport-scooterbike”,the Aprilia SR 150 is the second scooter offering from the Italian brand for our market. What makes the Aprilia SR 150 even more interesting is the fact that it will be built in India by its parent company Piaggio. The Aprilia SR 150 will be manufactured at the Baramati production facility of Piaggio and be the first offering from Aprilia to be built in India.

Talking about styling, the Aprilia SR 150 has a European design language which is edgy and contemporary. The sporty styling should make the SR 150 scooter a hit among the youngsters. The beaky front apron has the headlight embedded into it while the turn indicators have been placed on the handle bar. The beefy telescopic forks and the large 14-inch diameter wheels do give the scooter an aggressive stance which should help it standout from its rivals. The instrument console is a rather simple affair with a twin pod analogue unit for speedometer, fuel gauge and odometer alongwith various tell tale lights.

Although Aprilia hasn’t disclosed the exact powertrain  specifications, we reckon the SR 150 will be powered by a 150cc SOHC air-cooled four-stroke engine with power and torque to match the best in class. The scooter employs telescopic front forks and monoshock unit at the back to handle suspension duties. The scooter runs on 14-inch dia wheels that get wrapped around with 120/70 section tyres on both the wheels. The Aprilia SR 150 has a fuel tank capacity of 7 litres while seat height is 775mm. Braking is done by 220mm disc brake at front and 140mm drum brake at the rear.

 

The Aprilia SR 150 is slated to be launched in August 2016.
