Piaggio India has already begun production of the SXR 160 at its Baramati plant in Maharashtra, and is in the process of dispatching the scooters to the dealerships pan India. Bookings for the model are open online and at the brand's showrooms. The Aprilia SXR 160 will be the brand's new flagship offering and also one of the more expensive scooters to go on sale in the country.

First showcased at the 2020 Auto Expo, the SXR 160 is based on the SR 160, sharing the same frame and engine, but gets a wider body, new LCD instrument console and wider tyres as well. The scooter draws power from the 160 cc single-cylinder, 3-valve, fuel-injected engine that develops 10.8 bhp and 11.6 Nm of peak torque. The motor is paired with an automatic transmission. Suspension duties are handled by telescopic forks up front and a monoshock at the rear, while braking performance comes from a disc brake at the front and a drum brake at the rear. The scooter comes with single-channel ABS as standard.
