SR125 was first introduced at Auto Expo 2018 and along with that, the brand also unveiled the Aprilia Storm 125 variant with off-road specific tyres and two (Matte Yellow, Matt Red) new shades. The enhanced variant is almost ready to make an entry into the Indian market as recent reports claim April to be the launch month for Storm 125.
The launch of a smaller model helped Aprilia place itself at an even more attractive price tag and get a wider customer base that prefers mileage over performance. SR125 helped fans with strict budget explore the possibility of the race inspired design of the SR series and the scooter now also comes with CBS as standard.
Aprilia Storm 125 looks identical to the Aprilia SR 125 and shares almost every basic component in its body. The body shades are different and it comes with off-road tyres when compared to the standard model. Aprilia SR 125 and Storm 125 carries a 124cc, single cylinder engine producing 9.5 HP at 7250 rpm and 9.9 Nm at 6250 rpm.
The engine comes mated to an automatic gearbox while the scooter weighs just 122 kg. It carries identical seat height, ground clearance and wheels on offer in the Indian version. The fuel tank even carries 6.5 litres of carrying capacity.
SR 125 & Storm 125 comes with front telescopic forks while the rear uses single sided coil spring suspension. The engine is shared with 125cc Vespa scooters while body design and material stay the same as Aprilia SR150. Different shades and sticker job guarantees the individual presence of both the scooters.
The Indian SR150’s engine is good for 10.4 HP and 11.4 Nm of torque. The best part of Aprilia SR125 is its value for money approach, fetching buyers who were ready to get a new Honda Grazia or Suzuki Access 125 in the coming months. However, placing the same at this point saved them from equipment de-tuning and other cost-cutting measures. Aprilia Storm 125 is expected to be priced around INR 65,000 (ex-showroom) in India.
