In a virtual press conference, Graffi said that India has big potential for maxi-scooters in the 200-250 cc space and the SXR 160 will be a good way to test those waters. The Aprilia SXR 160 will be the most powerful scooter in the segment and will have a maxi-scooter design, but will have compact dimensions too. Graffi also said that the SXR 160 can take on highway duties and will be comfortable on long rides. It will be loaded with features as well. In fact, the underseat stowage on the SXR 160 is said to have space for a full-face helmet and then some more. Other features on the SXR 160 include all-LED lighting, an LCD digital instrument console and ABS as well. The Piaggio India boss also said that the scooter will have engaging riding dynamics, with good handling and stability at high speeds.

Piaggio India commenced production of the Aprilia SXR 160 at its Baramati planti in Maharashtra last week. We expect the prices to be somewhere in the range of ₹ 1.30 lakh (ex-showroom). At present, the only rivals to the scooter will be its siblings, the Aprilia SR 160 and the 150 cc Vespa scooters.
