The Piaggio Group-owned company, Aprilia has eventually launched the facelift version of its sportier scooter offering, the Aprilia SR 150 at the starting price of INR 70,031. While, in order to grab hands-on models like the Race version and the Carbon edition, one has to shell out the amount of INR 80,211 and INR 73,500 respectively. The 2019 version of the SR150 and the SR150 Race seeks the premium of INR 2500 and INR 3500 over the earlier models.
Let me remind you, the SR 150 did not see any alteration at the mechanical and underpinning end. The similar 154.8cc single-cylinder, air-cooled, three-valve motor that performs duty on the outgoing model, will take care of the propelling duties. Mated to an automatic CVT transmission, the mill is capable of churning out the maximum power of 10.2PS at 6750rpm and 10.9Nm at 5000rpm. The engine is rated to return the top speed of 95kmph.
On the suspension front, the conventional telescopic front fork and a rear monoshock absorb dumps on the roads with potholes. While the de-acceleration on the scooter will be handled by the armed 220mm disc brake at the front wheel and a 140mm drum at the rear wheel.
