Adding a dash of sportiness to its moto-scooter, Piaggio Group has launched the Aprilia SR150 Race in the country priced at Rs.70,282. The SR 150 Race comes in less than six months after the regular SR150 scooter was launched in India and comes with Aprilia’s RS-GP inspired body colour and graphics. The SR 150 Race joins the standard version of the scooter and will be sold via the Motoplex and Vespa outlets across India.
The new Aprilia SR 150 Race gets covered in the bike maker’s racing colours. While design gets no changes, the scooter now sports a grey base tone with red and green body graphics, along with red painted alloy wheels and gold finished front brake caliper. The rear shock absorber has been painted red, while the black and red seat has been carried over from the standard version. Aprilia says the suspension spring have been tuned for faster acceleration.
Mechanicals remain same on the Aprilia SR 150 Race with power coming from the 154.4 cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine tuned to produce 10.4bhp and 11.5 Nm of torque. The motor comes paired to an automatic transmission. The scooter has a kerb weight of just 122kg lending an appreciable power-to-weight ratio. The SR 150 comes with telescopic front forks and dual shock absorbers at the rear, while braking power comes from the disc at front and drum brake at the rear setup.
