The race version of the scooter will get race graphics, a new muffler and more performance
It’s been just a few months since Aprilia launched its very first scooter in the Indian market, the SR 150. Aggressive styling, bigger tyres, disc brake, twin-split headlamps, connection to the racing brand and an affordable sticker price immediately made this scooter an attractive proposition. With the sales gaining momentum, the company has come up with a race version for those expecting something more in terms of performance and dynamics.
www.autosarena.com have uploaded what looks like a page from an internal presentation of the upcoming SR 150 variant or the SR 150 R Race. The new scooter gets new Maze Grey body colour with a new race graphics. The bike gets new instrument dials, possibly a semi digital LCD unit. The wheels and rear damper are painted in red while the front brake caliper is finished in gold paint. The front has a slotted front disc rotor now which suggests that new bike will have more effective braking. The 1500cc air-cooled engine might feature a different state of tune for better performance and features a new exhaust muffler.
The standard version of the SR 150 is priced at Rs 67,395 (ex-showroom, Delhi) and the race version is expected to be priced around Rs 8,000 more.
