New Aprilia SXR 125

New SXR 125 to cost Rs 1.15 lakh 

– Rs 30,000 expensive than Burgman Street 125 

– Official launch soon  

Piaggio will launch the Aprilia SXR 125 in India soon and according to our sources, this maxi-scooter will be priced at Rs 1.15 lakh (ex-showroom). 

The company had commenced the pre-bookings of this Aprilia last week and it could be done at the Piaggio showrooms and also through Amazon. The customer had to pay a token amount of Rs 5000 in order to make the booking.  

Like its elder sibling, the SXR 125 also boasts a design that is quite attractive and aspirational. It gets features such as a twin-pod LED headlight, LED taillight, full digital cluster, a comfortable saddle, adjustable rear suspension, and a front disc brake with CBS. The Bluetooth connectivity feature comes as an option.  

Powering this scooter is a 125cc single-cylinder three-value motor that produces 9.4bhp at 7600rpm and peak torque of 9.2Nm. There are not details on the CVT gearbox that will be used on the SXR 125. We believe it will be the same unit from the Storm 125.  

The Aprilia SXR 125 competes with the Suzuki Burgman Street 125 which is much cheaper. We are yet to ride the SXR 125 but like most of the scooters in the line-up, the SXR 125 is also going be out of reach for majority of the Indian customers. . 

Aprilia revealed an all-new product at Auto Expo 2020 in the form of a maxi-scooter styled offering called the SXR, The scooter was one of the biggest two-wheelers unveils at show, so here’s a list of 5 things that will bring you up to speed on what it has to offer:

Will be available in two variants

Just like Aprilia’s current SR range, the SXR too will be available as a 125cc variant and a 160cc variant and just like those scooters, these will feature identical styling and hardware with the differentiating factor being the colour schemes.

Shares some mechanicals with SRs

Until very recently, the larger capacity SR used a 154cc engine that has now grown to 160cc with the advent of the BS6 norms and that’s the engine that, along with the smaller 125cc engine, will be used on the SXR range. The SR models are the manufacturer’s sporty, performance oriented offerings and we understand that the SXR will have similar power and torque figures. The chassis and hardware elements like the suspension and brakes may be similar too, but we do know that the steering rake angle is more relaxed, which has resulted in a longer wheelbase. What we hope to see is a more forgiving suspension set-up to offer more comfort over the SR.

What we do know at the moment is that the SXR 125 and SXR 160 will feature 12-inch wheels in comparison to the 14-inch units on the SR range.

Smart features and connectivity

Both scooters will feature an LCD multifunction digital instrument cluster and Aprilia also tells us that it will feature optional smartphone connectivity. This will likely be accessible via an external accessory that might also enable navigation and calling features. The company is yet to reveal more details on the same.

However, we have been told that the scooters will be largely customizable in terms of accessories and the manufacturer will have a wide array of them available from the factory.

Design

The SXR models, designed in Italy, follow a maxi-scooter-like design language and interestingly, aren’t Aprilia’s first such offerings in our country. A few years ago, the Italian manufacturer sold the SRV 850 here, however, it was soon taken off the market becuase it was far too expensive.

At the moment, the only scooter that’s close in terms of design is the Suzuki Burgman – both have maxi-scooter like design elements such as an elongated footboard that extends onto the inner side of the apron and a large, wide seat. The SXR also uses a unique and sporty looking headlight unit inspired by the new RS 660 sports bike. This t accentuates the wide front end and merges well into the overall design, while tail section is similarly sharp and stylish
