The BS-VI Aprilia scooters have started to arrive at select dealerships, and similar to the Vespa products, they do not get a major visual upgrade. Considering the limited to no visual and feature upgrades, the price increase appears to be very steep. Check out the complete price (ex-showroom Delhi) list below:

Model BS-VI Version BS-IV Version Difference
125 Storm INR 86,974 INR 68,277 INR 18,697
SR 125 INR 92,517 INR 74,027 INR 18,490
SR 125 Digital Console INR 95,039 NA NA
SR 150 INR 1,04,812 INR 85,394 INR 19,418
SR 150 Carbon INR 1,07,906 INR 88,465 INR 19,441
SR 150 Race INR 1,14,006 INR 94,641 INR 19,365

As in case of Vespa scooters, the BS-VI compliant Aprilia products should carry performance numbers close to those of the BS-IV models. The current 125 range, for reference, makes 9.4 BHP of peak power and 8.2 Nm of maximum torque. The engine of 150 series, on the other hand, makes 10.25 BHP and 11.4 Nm.

The hardware specifications will be the same on the BS-VI versions. Thus, the shock absorption tasks will be handled by telescopic forks at the front and a single-sided spring at the back. Anchoring department will continue to feature a disc brake at the front and a drum unit at the back. The safety net on the 125 range will include CBS tech, while the 150 series will use a single-channel ABS.
