BS6 Aprilia SR 125, SR 160 Showcased At Auto Expo 2020
Launched late last year, the BS6 iterations of Aprilia’s scooters command a substantial premium over their predecessors
- The SR 150 is now called the SR 160.
- Aprilia has not changed the styling of the scooters.
- The BS6 models are priced at a premium of around Rs 20,000.
Aprilia’s scooter lineup, which consists of the SR 125, SR 160 and the Storm, have made their first public appearance at Auto Expo 2020. These scooters received BS6 powerplants and went on sale with a substantial hike in their prices late last year. However, they still remain the most affordable way to park an Aprilia-branded two-wheeler in your garage. For more insight into how costly the new Aprilias have become, check out the following table:
Aprilia has not changed the styling of the Storm, the SR 125 and its 150cc scooter, maintaining its racy DNA. What the brand has done is change the nomenclature of the bigger scooter from SR 150 to SR 160. The new name doesn’t indicate a change in its displacement. Under the skin, it continues to feature the same 150cc motor as before. However, it now makes 11PS of power, making it 0.4PS more than before. The 125cc engine produces the same output as the BS4 model. However, both motors now get fuel-injection.
Parent company Piaggio also brought the MY 2020 Vespas to Auto Expo 2020.
