It appears like Italian two-wheeler maker Piaggio's Aprilia division is looking to expand its SR range in India. A new prototype of Aprilia SR 125, a smaller sibling of the SR 150 has been spotted with ARAI stickers, indicating the launch could happen soon.
Aprilia currently sells SR 150 in India. The only Aprilia scooter in India has received a tremendous response in the subcontinent and the company also added a peppy Race edition of SR 150 in India. The spotted SR 125 carries the same styling and design as its bigger sibling, SR 150. It seems to have the same decals and beak-styled front apron twin headlamp. The rear of the new SR 125 is also expected to get the same styling as the current model in the market. From the images of the new Aprilia SR 125, the only difference is believed to be under the hood. The spotted test mule wears SR 125 badging.
The SR 125 is expected to borrow the 125 cc, single-cylinder air-cooled engine of the Vespa SXL 125 and VXL 125, which can churn out 9bhp of power along with 8.2Nm of torque. Other features such as 14-inch alloy wheels wrapped around 120/70 spec wheels, 220mm disc at front and 140mm drum brakes at rear are also likely to carry over from the SR 150. The SR 150 comes powered by a 154.4cc 3-valve, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine that can churn out 11.39bhp of power and 11.5Nm of torque mated to a CVT unit. It has a 7-litre capacity fuel tank.
The news SR 125 is expected to be more affordable than the SR 150. The SR 150 is currently retailed at Rs. 68,806 (ex-showroom, Delhi).
