As the Aprilia SR 150 automatic scooter is gearing up to launch in India later this month, the Italian premium two wheeler maker appears to be testing the waters to introduce more automatic scooters in the country. The Aprilia SR Motard 125 has been spotted at a Vespa dealership in Bengaluru.
The SR Motard 125 looks identical to the SR 150 and can be identified only by means of the “125” sticker on the right side of the front apron.
The apron-mounted butterfly shaped headlamp, steering mounted front turn indicators, twin-pod analog instrument console, sleek engine cover, dual-tone seats, 14-inch alloy wheels and thick tyres are the highlights. The 125 cc engine, mated to a CVT, produces 9.6 PS and 8.2 Nm of torque.
The scooter is underpinned by tubular steel frame which is suspended by telescopic front fork and a single-sided coil spring at the rear. A 220 mm disc at the front and a 140 mm drum at the rear take care of braking duties.
The Aprilia SR Motard 125 is reported to be here for testing purposes. It’s too early to speculate about its launch prospects in India but if Piaggio decides to bring the small scooter at an attractive price point, it could attract some serious attention from the brand-conscious urban audience.
