A new spy shot has revealed the Aprilia Terra 250 upcoming adventure bike. The image of the KTM 250 Adventure rival has been taken inside its factory and appears to be quite authentic.
The Aprilia Terra isn't a new name if you remember the Aprilia Terra 125 that was launched in China back in 2016. A larger capacity Aprilia Terra 150 was also launched in the country later. However, it didn’t do well in the market because of its high price. Now, Aprilia is ready with an even larger capacity ADV to have a play in the quarter-litre segment.
Not much information about the Aprilia Terra 250 is known at this moment. Based on the leaked spy shot, it can be said that the quarter-litre adventure motorcycle is completely ready. It seems that the bike is parked inside its factory.
To ensure the Terra 250 can tackle as many adventures as possible, Aprilia has provided it with features like dual-purpose tyres, high ground clearance, long-travel front forks and spoke wheels. We also see a single-piece tubular-type handlebar that would provide an upright and relaxed riding position.
The seat height of the Aprilia Terra 250 appears to be adequate even for short riders. The spy shot of the motorcycle also reveals a side-slung exhaust, disc brake at both the ends and a big front fairing with ‘Terra’ branding.
As far as the engine is concerned, it is being said that Aprilia Terra 250 would be powered by the same 250 cc powerplant which has been fitted in the fully-faired Aprilia GPR 250 that was unveiled in China last year. It’s a single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that has a DOHC setup. It produces 26.5 PS of maximum power at 9,000 rpm and 22 Nm of peak torque at 7,500 rpm. It is linked to a 6-speed gearbox.
The Aprilia Terra 250 seems to be a worthy KTM 250 Adventure rival. Considering the growing demand for affordable adventure motorcycles in India, it would be a great option for enthusiasts. However, at this moment, there is no information regarding the bike’s launch in the country.
