Aprilia SR 150 Review

16 May, 2017 09:39 AM

Overview

Scooters have gained a lot popularity over the past one decade with the arrival of gearless scooters in the market. Moreover, scooters fascinate the youngsters who love the sportiness and fun that comes while riding a scooter. The news of launch of Piaggio Aprilia SR 150cc scooter has created a wave of excitement among the customers. To add on the excitement is the fact that the brand is known for its scarily fast superbikes. Aprilia SR 150 is now available in India with an introductory price tag of Rs 65,000 (ex-showroom Pune) and Rs 67,400 (ex-showroom Delhi).

Design and Style

Aprilia SR150 has got sporty looks that would steal your attention in one go. The aggressive looks are reflected from its twin headlights which are placed on the front apron with the red and black graphics. Moving on it features a short yet slightly high tail and a red-black seat. To complete it there are 32mm telescopic forks upfront along with large 14-inch wheels at both ends. Aprilia doesn't have a too wide or long foot-board isn't too wide or long but it is intact with its sportiness. The new Aprilia SR 150 has been designed with steel frame for better safety measures. The seating is quite tall resulting into a challenge for shorter riders. A softer padding on the seat could have made rides more comfortable for longer rides.

Engine and Gearbox

To power the sporty Aprilia SR150 is the 154.8cc, air-cooled single cylinder engine, the one which is there on the Vespa 150. This engine can generate 10.4 Bhp of maximum power at 6750 rpm against a maximum torque of 11.4 Nm at 5000 rpm. You would feel that SR150 is light to ride with a brisk acceleration, specially when you go up the rev range. Also, cutting through the traffic is easy while riding through country roads. Another fact about SR150 that would surprise you is its good mid range grunt along with its ability to pull beyond 70kmph where most scooters simply run of steam. The SR150 is one of the only scooters that will be able to go beyond 100 kmph on the speedometer.

Ride and Handling

Well, already said so much of its sportiness and engine performance. The nimble Aprilia SR 150 wouldn't disappoint you when it comes to taking quick turns, leaning into corners. This is also due to its 14-inch wheels and grippy tyres which prove out to be a brilliant handler. You may experience a bit of stiffness on the the suspension setup but this would support cornering and offer you good ground clearance which in other scooters would just scrape the stand or the exhaust on leaning too much.

Brakes and Suspension

Coming to the brakes part, Aprilia SR 150 has got 220 mm front disc brake and 140 mm rear drum brake. The suspension duties at the front are performed by 32 mm telescopic forks and at the rear by hydraulic shock absorber suspension.

Comfort and Convenience

There's an ample under seat space available in Aprilia 150. Along with that there is also a provision for USB connection which lets you charge your phone. Isn't it amazing? Along with this, there is also a bag hook provided on the Aprilia 150 to lessen your burden of carrying the bag on shoulders while on the go.

Instrument Console

To add to its sportiness, is the design of the clocks featuring a carbon fibre look and white background. The instrument panel has got a twin pod design with an analog speedometer, analog odometer, and an analog fuel gauge.

Shades

Aprilia SR150 is available in White and Black shade with both of the shades having touches of Red to enhance its style quotient.

Ex-showroom Price

Aprilia SR 150 is available at a price tag of Rs 67,400 (ex-showroom Delhi).which makes it a great package for a sporty scooter. This makes it more affordable than the Vespa 150, which is priced at Rs 88,000 (Ex-showroom). You can also book SR 150 online at PayTM and also get cashback of Rs 2,000 using a promo code.

What SR150 misses out?

The Aprilia SR 150 lacks the brake lock for the rear brake. But yes it does get the pass switch for the headlights. Another thing that could have been better is the quality of plastics used and a bit more refinement in the engine.

Verdict

We can expect this effort of Piaggio group to make a place in the hearts of superbike buyers and Vespa lovers. So, if you are the one who is looking for fun-filled rides along with good performance, handling and even price then Aprilia SR150 is the right option for you.

You get a good idea but then don't carry it through to provide wanted accessories. ... read more

Best Features: 150 engines and wheels

Pros: the 150cc engine and large 14" tyres. It's about time. Why can't other manufactures get it and get off the 100-125 cc bandwagon?????

Cons: The colors are horrible as well as the oversize with shortened seat. The instrument panel looks so old without any modern features and accessories.
