Scheduled to hit the Indian market in August-2016, Aprilia has already announced the prices of its first scooter, the SR 150. An introductory price of Rs 65,000 (ex-Showroom, Pune) was officially announced.
The SR 150 will be marketed as a crossover, which combines a sports bike feel with a scooter’s readiness. It will be available through Piaggio Group’s distributor network across the country, and the bookings are expected commence shortly. To keep the costs-down, Aprilia will be locally producing the SR 150 at Piaggio’s India plant in Baramati, Maharashtra.
Designed and engineered in Italy, the SR 150 borrows the engine from its cousin Piaggio Vespa 150. It is a single cylinder, 4-stroke, 150 cc engine with three valves that develops 11.4 BHP @ 7000 rpm and 11.5 Nm at 5,500 rpm. The braking duties will be done by 220mm front disc brake and a conventional 140mm rear drum brake.
