According to Zigwheels, which has also shared the spy images of the Aprilia SR 150 in new paint jobs, the scooter is likely to get four new colours in addition to the existing Matte Black and Glossy White. The new metallic colours are likely to be the Metallic Green, Metallic Silver, Metallic Light Blue and Metallic Dark Blue. From the images, it seems the new colour options are the only addition.

An earlier report had stated that the Aprilia SR 150 would get an update in India by December and would gain adjustable front forks setup in its updated avatar. Aprilia's SR 150 was launched in the country in August last year and the scooter has been earning a fairly good response from motor enthusiasts. However, the scooter has been criticised for its stiff suspension even though a fast scooter like SR 150 requires such a stiff ride.
