Buoyed by positive response for Aprilia SR150, the Italian two-wheeler maker is now planning to add new variants to the SR range in India. The company has recently introduced the SR150 Race edition and is now planning to introduce a new 125cc scooter under SR moniker. The Aprilia SR 125 could be the next Italian scooter to be retailed in India. The scooter has already been arrived in India for homologation purpose.
The SR 125 looks identical to its bigger sibling. Except for the new 125 sticker, the scooter shares most of its components from the SR150. The scooter is equipped with butterfly shaped headlamp, twin-pod analog instrument cluster and steering mounted turn indicators. It rides on 14-inch alloy wheels shod with thick tyres. Like the bigger sibling, the scooter gets dual-tone seats. Powering the scooter will be a 125cc engine that is paired to a CVT automatic unit. This engine is good for 9.5bhp and 8.2Nm of torque.

The standard version of the SR150 is currently priced at Rs 68,806, while the Race edition is tagged at Rs 71,923 (ex-showroom, Delhi). It is expected that the 125cc unit will also be offered in two avatars – standard and Race – and will be cheaper than the 150cc unit. The SR125 is likely to be priced between Rs 60,000 to Rs 63,000.
The scooter is currently in testing purpose, and has been spotted at ARAI facility for homologation purpose. We expect SR125 will be launched during festive season (around Diwali).
The upcoming Aprilia scooter will be powered by a new 125cc, single-cylinder, carbureted engine with 3-valved and air-cooling system. This BSIV compliant engine is capable of producing 9.5bhp of maximum power and 8.2Nm of torque. Power will be transmitted to the rear wheels via a CVT automatic unit.

Since the SR 125 shares its engine with the Vespa LX 125, it will be as fuel efficient as its sibling. With a carbureted engine, this engine is likely to return mileage around 45kmpl to 50kmpl.
The scooter is built on the tubular steel frame that also underpins the SR150. For suspension duties, the scooter gets telescopic fork at front and a single-sided coil spring at the rear. Braking system comprises of a 220mm disc and a 140mm drum at the front and rear, respectively. There will be no ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) on offer.
Featuring neat and clean design, the SR 125 looks identical to the SR 150 scooter. The “SR125” moniker on the front apron is the only difference between the two siblings. The front fascia looks similar to the Honda Dio. The headlamps are integrated into the cowl of the fascia, but the indicators have been placed on the handlebar. Other features include a twin-pod analog instrument console, dual-tone seats, stylish engine cover, etc. The scooter rides on large 4-inch alloy wheels shod with thick tyres for enhanced road grip.
