The SXR 160 will come equipped with a high performance 160 CC BS-VI motor. The mill is featured with three valve Fuel Injection clean emission engine technology. The 160cc Aprilia engine produces high power and torque to provide a great riding experience as it is claimed by the company.
Commenting on the occasion, Diego Graffi, Chairman and Managing Director, Piaggio India said,
We are extremely excited to soon introduce the highly anticipated and a unique, premium proposition for our discerning customers. As promised at the Auto Expo 2020, we are gearing up for the production of Aprilia SXR 160 in India and unfolding a new chapter for the scooter industry. With its highly innovative design, the SXR 160 is set to create a new unmatched experience of premium style, high comfort and best in class performance.

When launched the Aprilia SXR 160 will lock its horns with the likes of Suzuki Burgman, which is going the other way round and we might see the electric avatar of it anytime soon. The price tag at Aprilia SXR 160 could be around Rs. 1.25 Lacs (Ex, Showroom). You can expect the launch somewhere between mid of the next year.
