PIAGGIO HAS STARTED DELIVERIES OF ITS RECENTLY LAUNCHED APRILIA SR 150 IN INDIA, WHICH IS PRICED AT RS 65,000 (EX-SHOWROOM, PUNE).
Piaggio recently launched the Aprilia SR 150 scooter in India with an introductory price tag of Rs 65,000 (ex-showroom, Pune). Now, the company has started deliveries of the scooter from its Pune, Nagpur, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Kerala and Chennai dealerships and will move to other parts of the country in the coming weeks. The SR 150 is the first Aprilia product which is manufactured in India and is also the most affordable offering from the Italian brand.
Commenting on the commencement of Aprilia SR 150's deliveries, Stefano Pelle, managing director and CEO, Piaggio Vehicles Private Limited (PVPL), said, “The commencement of deliveries of the Aprilia SR 150 is a milestone moment for all of us at Piaggio India. This is the first bike from the Aprilia stable that has been designed for the India market and is being manufactured locally. With the Aprilia SR 150, patrons can now experience the racing heritage of the brand on Indian roads. It has managed to create a new category of crossover bikes in India and is receiving a favorable response from the youth of India.”
Available in matt black and white, the Aprilia SR 150 is characterised by an aggressive and sporty style. The Aprilia SR 150 looks like a crossover between a scooter and a sportbike, and is targeted at the discerning youth of India. The distinctive handlebars, the dual headlamp-incorporated front apron and, above all, the pronounced "beak" on the front wheel, characterise the front end.
Powered by a 155cc, air-cooled, 3-valve engine, the Aprilia SR 150 delivers 11.6PS of power at 7,000rpm and a peak torque of 11.5Nm at 5,500rpm. The large black 14" alloy wheels with five spokes show off decisive and sporty design drawn from Aprilia racing bikes. Moreover, the 220 mm front disc and 140 mm rear drum brakes provide excellent braking power and confidence in cooperation with the sticky 120/70 section rubber at both ends. The SR 150 is fun-to-ride like a motorcycle but provides the convenience of an automatic scooter as well.
Bookings for the Aprilia SR 150 are still going strong at Vespa and Motoplex dealerships across the country.
