Piaggio has started handing over the keys to the first customers of the Aprilia SR150, although the deliveries of the ‘sports-crossover’ is, as of now, limited to Bengaluru, Pune, Nagpur, Chennai, Hyderabad and Kerala. Piaggio says that pan-India deliveries of the bike should commence soon, in a matter of days.

A quick recap of the Aprilia SR150 then. Launched last month at a price of Rs 65,000 (ex-showroom, Pune) and developed specifically for the Indian market by Aprilia, the SR150 marries the convenience and the comfort of an automatic scooter with the sportier riding dynamics brought on by the big 14 inch wheels and the sticky rubber. It is powered by a carburetted 150cc engine producing 11.2 bhp and 1.2 kgm coupled to CVT gearbox. For now, there are just two color options for the SR150 – matt black and white – with the single variant on offer coming with black alloys and a 220mm front disc brake as standard.
