Have you made up your mind to buy the Aprilia SR150? Consider shelling out an additional Rs. 3,088 over the standard version’s Rs. 67,200 (ex-showroom, Mumbai) price tag and you’ll get to ride home on a special edition of the sporty scoot from the Italian two-wheeler manufacturer. Bearing the badge which reads Aprilia SR150 Race, the limited edition model comes finished in a shade of grey and is decked up in the company’s MotoGP team livery.
The red and green body graphics are inspired by sticker job on Aprilia’s RS-GP race bike. They have also given a red finish to some of the components on the SR150 Race, the rear shock absorber being a good example. The front brake caliper is finished in gold which lends the scooter a sportier character. 14-inch “Fluo Rosso” red alloy wheels come as standard and a race boom exhaust is available as an option. Aprilia has taken the time to add something more than the visual gimmicks to make the SR150 Race more special. So the 154.8cc single-cylinder engine now comes with an acceleration enhancement kit for a little bit of additional zing. The CVT gearbox has received some tuning too, which translates to better acceleration.
Priced at Rs. 70,288 (ex-showroom, Mumbai), the Aprilia SR150 Race is in fact a better option to turn to when compared with the standard version. After all, it’s one of those rare special editions which offer the go with the show.
