The Aprilia SXR160 maxi-scooter is the talk of the town as Piaggio India intends to bring it in production.
The production will start at the Baramati plant in Maharashtra, India. The tech specs may remain somewhat similar to its quirky sibling the SR160.
- CFMoto goes electric
- Brembos acquire SBS Friction
- Aprilia Tuareg 660 spotted
- Damon brings two more variants
The motor as expected comes loaned from the SR160 which is 160cc, three valves, V Tech Fi which calibrates to make 10.84 bhp.
In the case of new SXR160, we may see a retuned engine which essentially may calibrate to more power and torque compared to the SR160. The SR160 come with 40 Kmpl mileage and 122kg kerb weight.
Expect the same for SXR160 however, expect the Kerb weight of SXR160 to be little more than the SR160

The design is mature when we compared it with the SR160. The SXR160 gets a little beefy on the front while the SR160 remains thin and compact.
What more the upcoming SXR160 will get the USB charging port, LCD instrument dash and LED lights on the front and rear.
SXR160 in red
Aprilia plans to bring two colours for its SXR160, and they are red and blue.
The SXR160 will rival with Suzuki’s Burgman 125 and in India will come in the range of Rs 1.10-1.14 lakh (ex-showroom).
Aprilia SXR 160 launch date in India is in this month. We will keep you posted
On the other hand, Aprilia’s parent company Piaggio Italy has registered an electric scooter by name eSR1 with the European Patent Office.
Piaggio does have an electric scooter Vespa Elettrica. However, this will be the second under Aprilia.
And we do see multiple features in eSR1 comes shared from the Vespa Elettrica like the electric drive train.
Further, the Electtrica has two models, one with the 45km/h range and the other with 70 km/h range.
The motor is 3.6 kW which 4.2 kW / h battery which helps to reach the range up to 100 km.
With eSR1 Piaggio now seems to expand its electric portfolio. The new electric eSR1 will also add more valve to the portfolio.
The electric Vespa costs around 6,250 euros so the eSR1 may come around the same price.
