Piaggio India has launched the Aprilia SXR 125 in the country in the 125 cc segment. The new model is a maxi-styled scooter based on the Aprilia SXR 160 that was launched in India late last year. The new SXR 125 is priced at Rs. 1.15 lakh (ex-showroom, Pune), and bookings for the offering are open across the company’s dealerships pan India. The new scooter stays identical to its more powerful sibling but gets a smaller displacement engine in comparison.
The Aprilia SXR 125 gets a bulbous design that makes it look larger than standard scooters of the same segment. The maxi-styled scooter measures 1963 mm in length and 803 mm in width, with a 1361 mm long wheelbase. The scooter gets a seven-litre fuel tank and rides on 12-inch alloy wheels. The scooter borrows its design language from Aprilia motorcycles with the three-lamp set-up. The dual pods get LED headlights with daytime running lights, while the taillight is also an LED unit. Adding to the sporty look on the wide-body scooter are the body graphics with dark chrome embellishments and a sporty chrome garnish on the exhaust muffler.
The Aprilia SXR 125 also gets a tall windscreen for added wind protection and a raised handlebar for a more comfortable riding position. With respect to features, the model comes with an all-digital instrument cluster that displays a number of details including a speedometer, odometer, clock, service reminder, fuel indicator with distance to empty and more. The front split-glovebox also gets additional storage space with a USB charging point, along with 20 litres of under-seat storage. There’s also optional Bluetooth connectivity available that connect with the instrument console.
The Aprilia SXR 125 draws power from the 125 cc single-cylinder, four-stroke, air-cooled, three-valve engine with fuel injection. The motor develops 9.3 bhp at 7,600 rpm and 9.2 Nm of peak torque at 6,250 rpm. The engine is paired with a CVT unit. The scooter gets telescopic forks at the front and an adjustable single hydraulic shock at the rear. Braking performance comes from a 220 mm disc at the front with Combi Braking System (CBS), while the rear gets a 140 mm drum unit.
The Aprilia SXR 125 is available in four colours - Glossy Red, Matt Blue, Glossy White and Matt Black. The maxi-styled scooter competes with the Suzuki Burgman Street and the TVS NTorq.
