  • Aprilia GPR 250 has a full fairing.

  • Styling is inspired by RSV4.

  • 26bhp, 6-speed gearbox, 150kg kerb weight.

  • USD front fork and aluminum rear swingarm.

  • It might be showcased at the Delhi Auto Expo.

Aprilia has unveiled a new model, the GPR 250, in China. This is a fully-faired supersport motorcycle that takes inspiration from the big daddy of supersport machines, the RSV4, in more ways than one – and it seems likely for an India launch. 

The GPR 250 uses some tech that one doesn’t usually see in the segment – a twin-spar frame, for example, that is only currently seen on the Yamaha YZF-R15 and Bajaj Dominar 400. It also has an aluminum swingarm and upside-down front forks with a radially mounted front brake. Powering it is a 249cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine that generates 26 bhp and 22 Nm, which doesn’t seem like much – but then you factor in the 150 kg kerb weight, and it promises to be a fun and quick motorcycle. Braking is provided by a 300 mm front disc and a rear disc as well, with dual-channel ABS. Tyre sizes are 100/80 R17 front and 130/70 R17 rear.

The GPR250 also get clip-on handlebars, rear-set footpegs, and a part-digital instrument cluster. Interestingly it manages with an underbelly exhaust system despite other manufacturers like KTM moving away from it. The dimensions of the baby Aprilia are as follows:

If launched in India, it would make sense for Aprilia to launch it along with the Tuono 250, which is the street naked 250cc product from the Italian manufacturer. It will compete on displacement with the likes of the Honda CBR250R and the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250, but in reality, the features and positioning it has will drive the price point further and bring it closer to the likes of the KTM RC200.
