Ishita Bora: Deliveries of the Aprilia SXR160 have begun in India after its launch on December 23, 2020.
It has been reported that the Aprilia SXR 160 is priced at ₹ 1.26 lakhs and now, the company has begun deliveries of the scooter in India.
The report stated that the all-new scooter was designed in Italy, with a special focus on the needs of the Indian scooter market, as it gets an aggressive stance and the front end, in particular, stands out, especially with the RS660-inspired LED headlights.
Aprilia said that the scooter employs a crossmax design, which blends the sportiness of a maxi-scooter and offers the practicality of a regular scooter. The SXR 160 gets a full-digital instrument console and single-channel ABS. There is a dedicated ‘Mode’ switch on the right-hand stalk that gives you access to different information on the console.
Also, there is a lockable glovebox and a USB charging port on offer as well.
Aprilia said that it will offer an optional Bluetooth connectivity system on the SXR 160 too.
Thus, the scooter is powered by the same 160cc, single-cylinder, three-valve, engine that powers the Aprilia SR160. This motor churns out 10.84bhp of power at 7,600rpm and 11.6Nm of peak torque at 6,000rpm. This is the same motor that powers the Aprilia SR160.
