Piaggio Introduced Aprilia SXR 125 Maxi-Scooter Price Tag in India
Piaggio introduced the new Aprilia SXR 125 maxi-scooter in the Indian market at a price tag of Rs.1.15 lakh (ex-showroom, Pune). Although Piaggio is yet to officially announce the launch of the SXR 125 the brand has revealed the pricing of the maxi-scooter. As we had mentioned in our report earlier this month, the Aprilia SXR 125 Pre Bookings are open and can be booked at a refundable amount of Rs 5000. Having received a handsome response for the Aprilia SXR 160, launched in India in December 2020, the company now gears up for the launch of one more maxi scooter called the Aprilia SXR 125.
SXR 125 is the smaller version of the SXR 160
The SXR 125 is the smaller version of the SXR 160 that was launched in India in December last year. Aprilia SXR 125 maxi-scooter borrows a host of features from its bigger sibling SXR 160. It sports the twin LED headlamp, tinted windscreen, a large seat, and sleek rear section all neatly incorporated into its maxi-scooter styling. The company is offering the SXR 125 with the same color options as the SXR 160. The four-color schemes that will be offered are Matt Black, Glossy White, Glossy Red, and Matt Blue.
Talking about the features list, it gets full-LED lighting, a USB port, and an LCD instrument cluster. The scooter also offers a lockable front storage compartment, decently spacious under-seat storage, and a 7-litre fuel tank. The Aprilia SXR 125 is built on the same chassis as the SXR 160 and even shares its suspension and braking with the latter. It gets telescopic forks up front and a mono shock at the rear whereas braking is done by a 220mm disc for the front and a 140mm drum at the rear.
Aprilia SXR 125 Maxi-Scooter Engine Specs
Both scooters Aprilia SXR 125 and SXR 160 sport the same styling, features, and a majority of cycle parts. However, Aprilia SXR 125 borrowed an engine from the sportier SR 125. The Aprilia SXR 125 will get powered via a 125cc, 3 valve, single-cylinder, fuel-injected, air-cooled engine. This engine makes 9.3 hp power at 7,600 rpm and 9.2 Nm torque at 6,250 rpm. Suspension is via telescopic front forks and twin shocks at the rear. Braking is via 220mm front disc and 140mm rear drum brakes, with a combined braking system (CBS) for added safety.
Currently, the brand sells the Storm 125, the SR 125, the SR 160, and the SXR 160 in the Indian market. Aprilia SXR 125 comes out as a rival to the likes of the Suzuki Burgman Street 125 that costs Rs 87,871 for its top-spec model that also boasts of a Bluetooth-enabled cluster.
