It's about ₹ 23,000 more expensive than the regular SR 160 scooter. First showcased at the 2020 Auto Expo, the Aprilia SXR 160 is what the company calls a crossmax design or a hybrid of sorts, an amalgamation between the sportiness of a maxi-scooter and the practicality of a regular scooter.

The Aprilia SXR 160 is what the company calls a crossmax design, a mix between the sportiness of a maxi-scooter and the practicality of a regular scooter

The new SXR 160 is built on the same platform as the company's popular moto-scooter, the SR 160, and it packs the same 160 cc single-cylinder, 3-valve, air-cooled engine that is fuel-injected and is tuned to develops 10.8 bhp at 7,100 rpm and 11 Nm of peak torque at 5,750 rpm. The SXR has been tuned to be a more comfort-oriented scooter and power is spread more evenly through the rev range. That said, it's also 7 kg heavier at 129 kg (kerb) and thus it doesn't feel as quick as the SR 160.
