Piaggio India has just launched the facelifted Aprilia SR 150 moto-scooter. The new model comes with mobile connectivity technology, adjustable suspension, and new colour options. It is priced at INR 70,031 (ex-showroom, Pune), a hike of approximately INR 2,500.
The 2018 Aprilia SR 150 features a digital-analogue instrument console that takes the place of the all-analogue instrumentation of the outgoing version. In a format typical of many performance-oriented two-wheelers, the SR 150 gets an analogue speedo, while the fuel gauge, odometer, and trip meter are digital displays. The moto-scooter also gets a USB charger under the seat. While the SR 150 continues with the 120/70 R14-spec tires, the ones on the facelift get a new tread pattern.
Powering the 2018 Aprilia SR150 is a 154cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine that outputs 7.4 kW (10.06 PS) at 6,750 rpm and a peak torque of 10.9 Nm at 5,000 rpm. It gets a 220 mm disc brake up front and a 140 mm drum at the rear. The moto-scooter receives telescopic forks up front and a new, pre-load-adjustable monoshock at the back. It has a fuel tank capacity of 6.5 litres.
The mobile connectivity features available on the refreshed scooter include GPS information, emergency contact details and the ability to locate nearby service centres. Another highlight of the connectivity solution is a panic alert feature, which allows the user to send the current location to registered contacts in case of an emergency. Moreover, the user can also locate the two-wheeler through the ‘find-me feature’.
Speaking at the launch, Diego Graffi, managing director and CEO, Piaggio India said:
We will continue to explore creating premium differentiated products for the youth of the country. With the launch of the new bikes under the Aprilia and Vespa brands, we are only deepening our footprint across the country.
The 2018 Aprilia SR 150 is available in four paint schemes - Matt Black, Blue, Glossy Red, and White.
