Aprilia has to be in the Indian market for more than two years as a brand. The company had launched its first sports scooter Aprilia SR150 in the Indian market in 2016 and it was also quite successful. In the year 2017, the company launched the Aprilia SR150 Race Edition, which was the only sportier version of the current SR150. This scooter from Aprilia was also taken in hand in India and when it was launched it was the fastest scooter at that time and had the capacity to overcome many motorcycles.
The price of Aprilia SR 150 race edition was kept around 75,000 rupees. Most scooters in India are available in 125cc segments and their cost is also below 70,000, even for many scooters, around 50,000. In order to compete with other manufacturers, the Italian company recently launched its new scooter Aprilia SR 125 in the finished auto expo 2018.
The company has also started booking of this new scooter. We took a test drive of SR125 and let’s know how this new 125cc ride of Aprilia looks and what is special about it. Have a look on the Aprilia SR 150 review.
What is new in Aprilia SR125
The Aprilia SR125 has also been made on the pattern of the Aprilia SR150, its design meets the alike SR 150. If you do not see the badge of scooter, at first glance, you might not be able to identify which scooter is SR150 or SR125 in both scooters. Except new decals and color options, SR125’s full styling and bicycle parts have been taken from SR150. SR125 comes with two new color options Blue and Silver.
In the scooter tire, 14-inch blacked-out alloy wheels have been installed. Tires are quite wide and they also increase grip as there is no scooter sleep on the corners of the road while driving.
A good suspension has been given in the seat which helps in handling, but it can also bother the traveler for a long distance, especially on the rough routes. In order to catch the sitting behind, a leather strip has been given in the middle of its seat instead of the Grab Rail. Apart from this, it has been given the same semen instrument cluster as the Aprilia SR150.
Talking about the look, the Aprilia SR125 looks quite cool with the Black Alloy Wheel and Red Graphics, it reminds us of the padok scooter of Formula One and Moto GP.
