Soon Aprilia SR 160 would be accompanied by the new SXR 160 at Aprilia’s dealerships. Yes, that’s right because Aprilia SXR 160 has been unveiled at the Auto Expo 2020 and it will be launched in our country sometime during the third quarter of 2020!
One of the best things about Aprilia SXR 160 is that it has been designed in Italy but with Indian conditions in mind. So, it should be a perfect scooter for our roads.
Speaking about the SXR 160, Diego Graffi, Managing Director and CEO, Piaggio India said, “India continues to remain a strategic market for us. In the past few years, we have seen the changing preferences in Indian consumers. Aligned to these changes, we are proud to introduce new products which cut across categories and fulfil the needs of our customers – Aprilia SXR 160 is set to create a new category benchmark.”
Looking at the SXR 160 we could tell that it would be one of Aprilia’s premium offerings in India. Even though it is a scooter, its supreme elements make it hard for us to believe that. Upfront, we have a pair of large and sleek twin LED headlight setup along with LED DRLs. There is also a big windscreen which would help to keep the windblast away and also add to the overall look of the scooter.

Powering the SXR 160 will be the same 160cc, 3-valve engine that we have seen in the Aprilia SR 160. It produces 10.8bhp. In future, Aprilia would also launch a 125cc variant that would churn out 9.4bhp and 9.9Nm.
