Aprilia GPR 150 vs Honda CBR150R (Quick Comparison): Aprilia GPR 150 and Honda CBR150R are two impressive lightweight racers that the Indian market can get in 2020. The former was spotted in India a few months ago at a dealer event, hinting that Aprilia is planning to enter the popular 150cc motorcycle segment as early as possible.

In terms of looks, the Aprilia GPR 150 is different in comparison to the model (RS 150) showcased at the Auto Expo 2018, as it is based on a China-spec 150cc Aprilia sportbike. Honda CBR150R is yet to make an official entry into India, either through a test mule or a model that can be showcased to the dealers to gauge the response.

The performance values of both the bikes are highly comparable, with CBR getting benefits of its lightweight body while GPR 150 bringing higher overall power output. The tyre size, rear brake size, and 2-channel ABS stay same on both the models. The torque output is higher on the CBR150R. Here is a quick comparison between Aprilia GPR 150 and the Honda CBR150R.

Aprilia GPR 150 vs Yamaha R15 V3 (Quick Comparison): The upcoming Aprilia GPR 150 (RS 150) is a direct rival to the Yamaha R15 V3 ABS. The lightweight motorcycle was seen for the first time in a production-ready guise at a dealer meeting in India, hinting at a launch event at the Auto Expo in February 2020.

The GPR 150 comes with 18HP of claimed power output and weighs lighter in comparison to the R15 V3. On the other hand, Yamaha will have a clear benefit of an extensive dealership network whereas the Piaggio group has more presence in the South Indian states.

Aprilia GPR 150 features USD forks and thus, pricing will stay premium in comparison to the R15 V3. The expected price gap between both the models will stay around INR 10,000.

Aprilia is using the China-based design for the Indian market, leaving behind the popular RS 125-inspired design that is on sale in the European countries. The most powerful bike of its segment, the Yamaha R15 V3 is good for 19.3HP of maximum output. Here is a quick comparison between the R15 V3 and the GPR 150.

According to the latest details available, Piaggio is expected to launch the Aprilia GPR 150 in India at the upcoming Auto Expo in February 2020. In addition to the 150cc motorcycle, the Italian brand will also be launching an all-new family scooter at the Auto Expo 2020. Aprilia showcased two 150cc sportbikes at the Auto Expo 2018 namely RS 150 and Tuono 150. The former is a fully-faired sports motorcycle while the latter was showcased as a semi-faired street bike.

Though loaded with a host of exciting features and powerful performance capabilities, the brand would have to tone down the RS 150 and Tuono 150 to launch them in India, which is a very price-sensitive market. The Aprilia GPR 150, on the other hand, is already on sale in China and would be one of the best options for the brand to debut in the 150cc motorcycle segment in India. The sportbike was spotted in the country a few months back where the brand has showcased it to a bunch of Aprilia dealers to get their views on the launch of the 150cc machine.

If all goes well, the upcoming Auto Expo 2020 will witness the launch of GPR 150 in the country while the motorcycle will be available for sale sometime after that. Since Aprilia is known to offer premium motorcycle range in India, one can expect the brand to launch the GPR 150 at an ex-showroom price tag of around INR 1.50 lakh, which is higher than the price of its close competitor Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.

The launch of the 150cc machine in the Indian market would be one of the wisest decisions from the brand to get a strong foothold in the country. If the brand manages to get ahead in the competition with the launch of Aprilia GPR 150 in India, expanding its portfolio in the 300-400cc segment would be something expected by the enthusiasts.

As plans for the launch of 150cc Aprilia motorcycles in India are underway, the recent confirmation by the parent brand Piaggio’s chief has further strengthened the reports that are making rounds on the internet. Not just one or two, they have announced four new bikes under the Aprilia lineup. The manufacturing of 150cc motorcycle from Aprilia will begin around early 2020 or if late from the least limit, the same will arrive before the mid of 2020. Apart from the two scooters, Aprilia brings all other motorcycle models via the CBU route and gets heavy taxation like all other premium products.

Aprilia has confused everyone with the upcoming 150cc bike as reports are divided into two thought schools based on the products shown and spied during the last one year. The showcase of Aprilia RS 150 helped the buyers imagine what the production version for the upcoming Yamaha R15 V3 rival would look like but soon after few months, the GPR 150 was spotted in India undisguised. The model is a China-specific version that shares functional parts with the RS 150 and visual parts remain unique.

As they have officially projected a period for the manufacture of 150cc Aprilia bike in India, the test mules will further confirm the arrival of either GPR 150 or RS 150 in the country. Those who are excited can await test mules on the road by the third quarter of 2019 as more than 6 months of testing with more than 1 lakh kilometre on the odometer is expected from the reputed Italian brand.

“When we entered the scooter space, we focused on the premium end and the same is the case with the range of motorcycles we plan to bring in. We plan to start manufacturing a 150cc bike in the next 12-15 months. We plan to launch four motorbikes under Aprilia,” Diego Graffi said in an interview with ET Auto.

A production-ready image for the upcoming Aprilia GPR 150 (popular by the name RS 150 for the Indian buyers) was leaked online from the dealers meet. The motorcycle is already on sale in China and uses the identical engine configuration as quoted by the brand on their Auto Expo information chart. The plan of using Euro-spec RS 125 design for the RS 150 was dropped by the brand as the model seen here (Aprilia GPR 150) is seen with a different fairing and tail section. However, the frame and swingarm are still the most beautiful elements you can find on the upcoming motorcycle.

The image seen here confirms that Aprilia GPR 150 would be the most suitable name for their lightweight racer as RS 150 sounds more in-line with Bajaj Pulsar series and even confuses the fans with their own scooter, the SR 150. The frame, swingarm, alloy wheels, disc brakes, suspension, and front/rear fender stays the same on both the bikes while basic differences come in the headlight placement, fairing design and placement of seats through a different panel setup. The front of Aprilia GPR 150 comes with the same iconic Aprilia headlight design, with the only difference seen through bigger than ever headlight size and unique rearview mirror holders.

The China-spec GPR 150 is available in Red, Black and White shade. The fairing is bulky in comparison to the Euro-spec model and GPR 150 also loses on the wings that are seen under the rear seat of RS 150. The 150cc engine on the motorcycle is good for 18 HP at 9750 rpm and 14 Nm at 7500 rpm. The model listed on the Aprilia website claims 15.4-litres of fuel carrying capacity and 1345mm of effective wheelbase. If Aprilia brings the identical model to India using the USD forks and all other features, the price for GPR 150 will fall almost INR 10,000 over the price tag of R15 V3.
