Aprilia has hiked costs for its SR and SXR vary of scooters in India. The SXR is the Italian model’s line-up of maxi-style scooters, whereas the SR vary is made up of sporty scooters and was not too long ago facelifted. That facelift introduced some new options and was accompanied by a worth hike of round Rs 10,000. Now, costs have gone up as soon as once more, by round Rs 6,500, for each mannequin ranges.

However this time round, there are not any updates or new options on supply. The road-up now begins at Rs 1.06 lakh for the 125cc Storm, with the SR 125 costing Rs 1.16 lakh and the SXR 125 priced at Rs 1.27 lakh. The 160cc vary, in the meantime, begins at Rs 1.26 lakh for the SR 160 and goes all the best way as much as Rs 1.38 lakh for the SXR 160.

That is fairly a considerable enhance, and these Italian scooters which had been already an costly proposition, are actually much more so. Particularly when you think about competitors just like the Yamaha Aerox 155, which regardless of being significantly faster, extra tech-laden and feature-rich, is extra inexpensive than the SXR 160, at Rs 1.37 lakh. Within the 125cc enviornment, Aprilia’s competitors comes from the maxi-style Suzuki Burgman Road, which can be a superb deal extra inexpensive than the Italian choices, costing between Rs 87,900 and Rs 91,800.
