The India-specific Aprilia SXR 160 premium scooter has been launched at Rs 1.26 lakh (ex-showroom) and deliveries will begin in January 2021.
Unveiled at the Auto Expo 2020, the Aprilia SXR 160 enthralled the crowd with its stylish Italian design, features and sporty stance. Now the premium 160-cc scooter can be booked for an initial amount of Rs 5000 across all dealerships or through Aprilia India’s official website.
The Aprilia SXR 160 is one of the most premium scooters available in the market, with an asking price of Rs 1.26 lakh (ex-showroom). The BS6 version of the Aprilia SR 160 has recently been introduced at Rs 1.04 lakh (ex-showroom), meaning the maxi-style SXR would demand a premium of about Rs 20,000.

Like it’s sibling, the Aprilia SXR 160 employs the same BS6 160-cc single-cylinder engine that makes 11 hp and 11.6 Nm of torque, and has been fine-tune to make it more comfortable than the SR. It seems to have a longer wheelbase, while the steering rake angle also appears to be more relaxed. Interestingly, unlike the 14-inch wheels seen on the SR range, the Aprilia SXR 160 will sport smaller 12-inch alloy wheels.
Justifying the premium pricing, the Aprilia SXR 160 comes with a fancy feature in the form of an LCD multifunctional information display offering a host of features such as digital speed indicator, tachometer, fuel efficiency indicator, average speed and top speed display, digital fuel indicator to name a few. Customers can also opt for the mobile connectivity accessory which connects the user’s mobile to the scooter. Apart from the under-seat cavity, the SXR offers a storage compartment on the apron also. There is even a mobile-phone dock, and even a USB charging port. (Also Read: Aprilia SR 125 Discontinued)
