Piaggio Vehicles Private
Limited (PVPL) has rolled out the very first Aprilia SR 150 from its plant in
Baramati. After its announcement at the Delhi Motor Show in February, Piaggio
has started the production of the Aprilia SR 150 beginning August 10, 2016 and
the Aprilia SR 150 will be made in India at Piaggio’s Baramati plant.
Available in matte black and
white, the first Aprilia SR 150 to roll out of the plant comes with a powerful
150 cc engine and tubeless wider sport street tyres, which reflects the sporty
feel of the brand. With the Aprilia SR 150, Piaggio aims to carve out a new
category of crossover bikes in India’s booming two-wheeler market. The design
of the bike will appeal to the country’s young riders who are looking for the
sensation of a sports bike coupled with the convenience of an automatic scooter
for their daily commute.
The distinct, sporty handlebar
with integrated turn indicator lights and twin pod analogue unit for the
speedometer are designed to be easily readable while zipping in and out of
traffic. The steel frame structure of the bike provides higher rigidity while
delivering unmatched manoeuvrability. The Aprilia SR 150 has an aggressive and
aerodynamic design inspired by that of the RSV 4 1000 RF Factory, offering the
best technology and safety for a crossover bike.
Commenting on the roll out of
the Aprilia SR 150, Stefano Pelle, Managing Director and CEO, PVPL said, “With
the roll out of the Aprilia SR 150, it is indeed a proud moment for us here at
the Piaggio group. The first India made
Aprilia only reiterates our India commitment. The SR 150 is a one of its kind
from the Aprilia stable, especially since this bike is customized for the
Indian market and produced locally. The crossover segment in India is in its
nascent stage and we are yet to see its full potential; with the Aprilia SR 150
we aim to capitalize on this opportunity. Aprilia worldwide is known for its
racing heritage and we have packed some of the superbikes abilities like
performance and handling in this compact SR 150.”
The Aprilia SR 150 will be
available through Piaggio’s dealership network in the country as well as their
Motoplex’s across Pune, Chennai, Kochi and Hyderabad. The pre bookings for
Aprilia SR 150 are also available through PayTm.com
