Aprilia has officially announced the price tag at which the new SXR 125 maxi-scooter model will be launched in India. The soon-to-be-launched Aprilia SXR 125 will be available at Rs.1.16 lakh, which is Rs.9000 less than its elder sibling, the SXR 160.
The scooter will come in White, Matte Blue, Red and Nero Grey colour options and the prices are revealed on Aprilia’s website. The bookings of the new scooter can be made at a token amount of Rs.5,000.
The design and features of Aprilia SXR 125 are similar to its elder sibling, the SXR 160. But it has borrowed the engine from the SR125 model, which has a 125cc single-cylinder fuel-injected engine and produces 9.3bhp maximum power at 7,600rpm and 9.2Nm peak torque at 6250rpm.
The Aprilia SXR 125 comes with the brand’s signature setup of a triple headlamp design with integrated LED DRLs. The scooter is also equipped with a massive front apron, large tinted visor, LED tail lights and alloy wheels. The muscular look of the scooter is mainly due to the newly added exhaust.
Additional features include a fully digital instrument cluster, wide seats for the rider and the pillion, glovebox on either side of the front apron with a USB charger on one side, large illuminated under-seat storage space and Bluetooth mobile connectivity option.
The maxi-scooter has telescopic forks at the front and a twin-shock absorber setup at the rear, which handles the suspension duties. It also has a 220mm disc brake at the front and a 140mm drum brake at the rear, which has a combined braking system to ensure extra protection for the rider.
The Aprilia SXR 125 will face severe competition from the Suzuki Burgman Street 125 and the TVS Ntroq in India. If we compare the prices, the Burgman Street 125 is seen to be Rs.27,000 cheaper than SXR 125. The Ntorq isn’t a maxi-scooter, but it will also give a close competition as it is Rs.38,000 cheaper than the Aprilia model. Although the prices are not in favour of the Aprilia SXR 120, it remains to be seen if it will be received well in India, just like its elder sibling, the SXR 160.
