In yet another industry first, Piaggio India
unveiled India’s first Sport-Scooterbike – Aprilia SR 150 designed for the
country’s discerning young riders who are looking for the sensation of sport
bikes and the convenience of automatic scooters in their daily city commute.
The innovative Aprilia SR 150 has the unique design which perfectly blends the
cues of motorbikes and scooters. This cross over with its powerful 150cc
engine, 14 inch big wheels like motor bikes and auto gears like motor scooters
is set to carve out a new category in the country’s booming two-wheeler market.
Aprilia SR 150 is characterised by an aggressive sporty style. The design
reflects the character of brand Aprilia. The distinct sporty handlebar, the
light unit included in the shield and above all the pronounced ‘beak’ on the
front wheel characterise the front end. The large black 14" alloy wheels
with five spokes show off the decisive and sporty design drawn from the Aprilia
racing bikes. The raw power of 150cc enhances the liveliness of a vehicle born
to make every city ride fun, fitted with sport street tyres and 220 mm front
disc and 140 mm rear drum brakes.
