Apart from the standard Aprilia SR 160, the other two variants of this scooter are SR 160 Carbon and SR 160 Race. D Lifestyles (P), the authorized distributor of Aprilia scooters in Nepal, will soon be making the all-new Aprilia SR 160 available for purchase.
The Aprilia SR 160 promises to be an exciting addition to the lineup of Aprilia scooters. It comes with a sporty appearance, strong performance, and cutting-edge technology. This new edition of the scooter boasts a powerful engine and a fresh design that will surely turn heads on the road.
Now let’s take a look at the Honda Dio 125 and its features and specifications.
Aprilia SR 160 Design
The all-new Aprilia SR 160 manages to stand out from the competition due to its dynamic and aggressive design language. The scooter comes with a tweak to its previous design, which gives it a far more sporty attitude, a sleek body, and sharp lines. The scooter’s aerodynamic styling also improves both stability and performance while also enhancing its aesthetic appeal.
The SR 160 also brings a new LED headlight cluster with integrated LED position lights that seamlessly bind with the flow of the front apron, which sort of gives it a smiley-face appearance. The headlights aren’t just for cosmetics, as they are of the high-lumen variety, which will allow riders to have good vision in the dark.
Another new addition to the design of the Aprilia SR 160 is the handlebar with faux intakes and a carbon-fiber finish on the front fender. Apart from that, it also receives a pair of knuckle guards as standard. Another design change you can see are the red wheels and the delectable paint and graphics scheme, which are inspired by the colors on the Aprilia RS-GP MotoGP machine.
Other noticeable changes include a chunkier grab rail and an X-shaped LED tail light. With these very fine tweaks, the already good-looking Italian scooter gets a well-rounded facelift.
And when talking about the ergonomics of the Aprilia SR 160, the seat of the scooter has been reworked and features a split pattern design.
