We are finally getting to see great moto-scooters on Indian roads. The SR150 changed the way youngsters looked at a mini performance scooter in India and the company has gone a step ahead and launched the Race Edition version today. At Rs 70,288, the Aprilia SR150 Race Edition Price is just 3,088 more than the regular version [price mentioned is ex-showroom Mumbai]
Aprilia SR150 Race Performance
Just yesterday I was thinking about picking up one and now this. Aprilia knows how to tickle an enthusiast’s fantasy! Though the SR150 gets all jazzed up now, engine specs remain same as the normal version. This means you get the tried and tested 154.8cc engine that belts out 10.4 bhp of power and 11.4 Nm torque. However what Aprilia has done is play around with the CVT’s ratios for quicker acceleration. Impressive, very impressive. I am sure the SR150 Race edition will be a hoot to ride in traffic. Can’t wait to get my hands on one now!
Aprilia SR150 Race Color Theme
- The color theme for the SR150 Race is inspired from the company’s racing livery.
- The base color is grey with green and red additions.
- Red paint for the alloy wheels.
- Golden finish for the brake calipers.
- Red finish for the rear shock absorbers.
The official press release also states that this new edition gets revised suspension springs. Other mechanical bits remain same which means the scooter rides on 14” alloy wheels and braking duties are handled by a 220mm dia disc up front and 140mm drum at the back.
