Default Rumour: Aprilia to add more scooters in the SR range. SR 125 spotted with ARAI stickers

Aprilia is reportedly planning to expand its SR range of scooters in the Indian market. Recent media reports suggest that the Italian two-wheeler maker will launch another product in the SR line-up next year. The Aprilia SR 150 is the company's first gearless scooter in the affordable two-wheeler segment.

It is still not clear whether the new SR would have a larger capacity engine, or will be smaller than the SR 150. It is likely that the company might introduce a smaller scooter named the SR 125, which will borrow its engine from the Vespa 125 scooter range.

The SR 150 was recently introduced in the Indian market at prices starting from Rs. 65,000 (ex-showroom). It will be sold through the Piaggio Vespa dealerships across the country. Currently, there are 100 such dealerships in India, while 50 more are expected to be added in 2017. The SR 150 will also be available at the MotoPlex multi-brand showroom in Pune, Chennai, Kochi and Hyderabad.

Aprilia SR 125 spotted in India, launch soon

Aprilia launched the SR 150 in India last year. It became the first Aprilia branded two-wheeler to be locally manufactured in India. With the Indian gearless scooter market expanding with every passing year, the Italian two-wheeler manufacturer is now planning to launch a smaller 125 cc sibling in the SR range of scooters. The Aprilia SR 125 has recently been spotted in Pune with ARAI stickers. Reports indicating that the scooter is currently undergoing the homologation process. As a result, an official launch is expected to be scheduled in the near future.

The overall styling of the SR 125 is expected to remain similar to that of the SR 150. The model submitted for homologation even wears the SR 150 vinyl badge on the side fender. However, there is a sticker with the SR 125 label that has been placed on the scooter.

Powering the Aprilia SR 125 will be a 125 cc, single-cylinder air-cooled engine that will likely develop 9 BHP and 8.2 Nm of torque. This power unit will be based on the engine found in the Vespa SXL 125 and VXL 125.

Default Aprilia SR 125 spotted at dealership

In May 2017, a test mule of the Aprilia SR 125 was spotted in Pune. Now, images of a couple of SR 125s spotted at a dealership have surfaced on the internet. According to a media report, the scooter is likely to be launched in the coming weeks.

The spy images indicate that the SR 125 will be available in two new colour options - blue and silver. The styling is identical to the SR 150 with similar decals, but 'SR 125' labels. The front cowl houses twin-headlamps, while the turn-indicators are placed on the handlebar. The scooter comes with a stepped seat and a split rear grab handle. Like the SR 150 version, the SR 125 is equipped with a telescopic fork suspension at the front and a shock absorber at the rear. It rides on 14-inch alloy wheels.

The Aprilia SR 125 is expected to be powered by the same 125 cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that powers the Vespa SXL 125 and VXL 125. This unit generates 10 BHP @ 7,500 rpm and 10.6 Nm of torque @ 6,000 rpm. The SR 125 is likely to be offered with a disc brake at the front and a drum brake at the rear.

While Aprilia hasn't announced the price of the SR 125, it is expected to be positioned below the SR 150, which is priced at Rs. 69,600 (ex-showroom, Delhi).

The Kochi showroom seems to have started accepting prebookings from customers. The ex showroom price hasn't been announced yet, however.
