Soon after Aprilia launched SR 125 automatic scooter at the 2018 Auto Expo at a sticker price Rs 65,310 (ex-showroom, Pune), the scooter is now available for bookings on the PayTM mobile app. In a bid to lure customers, Aprilia has rolled out a lucrative offer on the scooter. That said, customers can get a cashback of Rs 5,000 if they book it through the mobile app, PayTM. To place an online order, interested customers can visit the www.apriliasr.in website.
The customers need to provide the mandatory personal details such as name, contact number, e-mail address, etc., on the website. For payment, the website will then redirect customers to the PayTM Mall site from where a dealer can be chosen and the scooter can be booked. However, the cashback will be applicable only if the customers use the BIKE5000 promo code in the offer section.
Powered by the smaller capacity 125cc engine, the Aprilia SR 125 derives power from the 124cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that comes linked to an automatic CVT gearbox. In terms of output, it makes 9.4bhp along with peak torque of 8.2Nm. Stopping power is drawn by a 220mm front disc brake and a 140mm drum brake at the rear. Additionally, it is benefitted by a telescopic front and single monoshock suspension set-up. It comes with a 7-litre fuel-tank and has a weight of 122kg.
The company will also launch a new scooter based on the SR125 christened Storm, by the end of this year. Aprilia will pack a host of features on the new touring scooter, which will be offered with brighter colours and larger wheels. That said, the Storm is expected to get 14-inch wheels instead of the 12-inch wheels in the SR125. As for the styling, it comes with a large front visor and a rugged body.
