Last year December, Piaggio had fielded the Aprilia SXR 160 for the first time in India’s untapped maxi-scooter market. You can check out Janak’s review story here. Now, there’s a mini version of the SXR 160 on the cards as well. Yes, the Aprilia SXR 125 will soon be launched. It is quite similar to its elder sibling in terms of design.
Well, the obvious change is of course the engine in the SXR 125. It comes with a 125cc BS6-compliant, single-cylinder engine with three valves and fuel injection technology, producing 9.4 bhp and 0.93 kgm of peak torque. The rear suspension on it is adjustable and stopping comes with the aid of a disc brake along with CBS. In addition to that, you do get a bunch of modern tech features. For instance, it gets a wrap-around LED headlight and an LED taillight, a fully digital instrument cluster, Bluetooth connectivity, and lovely Aprilia graphics. You can have the SXR 125 in one of these four colour schemes: Matte Black, Glossy White, Matte Blue, and Glossy Red.
The bookings for the Aprilia SXR 125 have been opened. One can pre-book it before the launch by paying Rs 5,000 through its site here or visiting the nearest dealership. It will be interesting to see how Aprilia will price the SXR 125 as it enters the competitive 125cc scooter market.
