The Aprilia SR 150 is Aprilia’s first scooter in India.

The Aprilia SR 150 made its Indian debut at Auto Expo 2016 and goes on sale this month for an introductory price of INR 65,000 (ex-showroom Pune). It will be sold at Vespa and Aprilia dealerships as well as online on Paytm. Bookings for the first Aprilia scooter in India are now open. Colour choices include matte black and white.

The Aprilia SR 150 sits in the premium scooter segment, but is still priced cheaper than Piaggio’s Vespa range which starts at INR 70,221 (ex-showroom Delhi). The Aprilia SR 150, with its Aprilia RSV1000 R Factory-inspired design, is for those preferring a scooter sportier than a Vespa.
