Aprilia has launched the Storm 125 at a starting price of Rs 65,000 (Ex. Showroom, India) in the Indian market. Being firstly showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo, it costs nearly Rs 8,000 less than the Aprilia SR125 which is priced at Rs 72,920 (ex-showroom, Delhi). Although, the Storm 125 comes with a few changes as compared to the model displayed at the 2018 Auto Expo. Aprilia Storm 125 will take on the likes of TVS Ntorq and Honda Grazia, which are priced a bit lower at Rs 58,252 and Rs 60,273 (Both prices are Ex. Showroom, Delhi), respectively.

The Storm 125 comes with dual drum brakes at the front as well as rear while riding on what appear to be 12-inch wheels. However, the wheel design is pretty identical to the 10-inch wheels which can be seen on the Vespa models in the country. The drum brakes will also feature CBS. The company might also offer a variant with disc brake at a later stage. The scooter also flaunts a grab handle which was missing from the model at the 2018 Auto Expo. Also, the Aprilia logo color is different from the Expo model as now it comes in red instead of white. The Storm 125 is expected to ride on the same tyres as the Auto Expo model, measuring 120/80 at the front and 130/80 at the rear.

The bodywork alongwith the bold graphics is similar to the SR125. The instrument cluster and lights are also borrowed from the SR125. Mechanically, Aprilia Storm 125 will be powered by the same single-cylinder, three-valve air-cooled petrol engine which does duties to the SR125. The engine makes top power of 9.5bhp at 7250rpm and peak torque of 9.8Nm at 6250rpm. Although the Aprilia Storm 125 was scheduled to be launched by the end of 2018 but the unsold inventory of the SR125 caused this delay and the company had to wait for 4-5 month more before eventually introducing it. The scooter has started arriving at the dealerships and can be seen at a few of them with bookings also open.
