Design

Aprilia says that the SXR 160 gets a 'Crossmax' design which, as the name suggests, is a design that is a cross between the sportiness of a maxi-scooter and the practicality of a regular scooter. The Aprilia SXR 160 was designed in Italy, with special focus on the needs of the Indian scooter market. The scooter gets an aggressive stance and the front end in particular, stands out, especially with the RS660-inspired LED headlights. The tall design, wide-handlebars, step seat and a sharp, raked rear section make for a handsome scooter. The scooter is offered in four colour options - Red, Blue, Black and White and currently there is only one variant available.
