IAB reader Lakshya Anand has shared images of an Aprilia SR 150 Carbon Edition that has been showcased at a New Delhi-based dealership. The special edition of the SR 150 was launched in September and has started to arrive at the showrooms.
The Aprilia SR 150 Carbon made its public debut at the Auto Expo 2018 in February this year. It was finally launched in September 2018 and is a part of the 2018 Aprilia SR 150 range, which also comprises SR 150 (Standard) and SR 150 Race.
The new scooter features a carbon fibre-like texture on the front apron, around the blinkers and the sides. The all-black look, combined with several red highlights, makes the scooter look sportier than the standard version. Apart from the new colour scheme, the new model remains identical to the standard version.
The 2018 Aprilia SR 150 range features a semi-digital instrument console with Smartphone connectivity via Bluetooth. Feature list via Smartphone connectivity includes GPS information, Panic Alert system, and the ability to locate nearby authorised service centres. The Panic Alert system sends the rider’s current location to a registered mobile number in case there was an accident. The 'find-me' feature can be used to spot the scooter in dark parking spots while the under-seat USB charger can be used to replenish the batteries of a smartphone or other devices. The updated model line-up rides on MRF tires instead of Vee Rubber that was available on the earlier iteration.
Powering the Aprilia SR 150 Carbon Edition is a 154cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine that outputs a maximum power of 10.06 PS at 6,750 rpm and a peak torque of 10.9 Nm at 5,000 rpm. Braking is courtesy of a 220 mm single disc brake on the front wheel and a 140 mm drum at the rear. The updated SR 150 range features a pre-load-adjustable monoshock at the back, while the telescopic suspension at the front remains unchanged.
The Aprilia SR 150 Carbon Edition is priced at INR 73,500 (ex-showroom, Gurgaon).
