The Aprilia SR 150 will be available in matte black and white and will draw power from a from a 154.4cc four-stroke air-cooled carburetor engine which is good for 10.4 bhp and 11.4 Nm of torque.

Stefano Pelle, Managing Director and CEO, PVPL says that the SR 150 is a one of its kind from the Aprilia stable, especially since this bike is customized for the Indian market and produced locally. The crossover segment in India is in its nascent stage and the Italian two-wheeler maker is yet to see its full potential. With the Aprilia SR 150, Piaggio aims to capitalize on this opportunity.
