The Aprilia SR150 is one of the sportiest automatic scooters that’s on sale in India. The 150cc scooter, sold by the Piaggio group will soon be available in four new colours. SR150s in these shades have already been spotted at a Piaggio dealership.
The four new colours are – Metallic Green, Metallic Light Blue, Metallic Dark Blue, and Metallic Silver. Currently, the SR150 is available only in two shades – Glossy White and Matte Black. The new colours will make it quite appealing to more buyers in India.
The Aprilia SR150 is sold in two variants – Regular and Race. Both variants feature the same, 150cc four stroke engine that produces a peak power of 10.2 Bhp and a peak torque of 11.5 Nm. The difference between the two models lies in the transmission. While both feature a CVT automatic transmission, the one on the Race version is tuned to deliver torque in a quicker, sportier manner with lower lag, that is commonly associated with such gearboxes.
The other sporty bits about this scooter are its styling and its 14 inch alloy wheels. These alloy wheels combined with telescopic front forks allow the SR150 to handle much better than other automatic scooters. The SR150 gets a monoshock rear shock absorber like other automatic scooters sold in India.
For braking, there is a 220mm disc with twin-piston caliper at the front and a 140mm drum brake at the rear. The scooter is priced at Rs. 69,600, ex-showroom Delhi. Piaggio is expected to keep this price constant even on the new coloured SR150s.
A new scooter will be added to the Aprilia SR line up. It’ll be called the SR125 and will feature the same styling as the bigger engined SR150. It will be launched next year, and will be priced lower. It is meant to target the college-going buyers.
