Priced at Rs. 70,288/- ex showroom Mumbai, SR150 RACE boasts of the aesthetics and ride quality of Aprilia’s RS-GP which competes in the MotoGP World Championship.
SR150 RACE comes with specially designed accessories that further compliment the racy feel of the India’s second crossover sport-scooter.

Commenting on the new addition, Mr. Stefano Pelle, Managing Director and CEO – Piaggio Vehicles Private Limited said,
“The great response we got when we introduced the SR150 in India last year gave us the confidence that the market is now ripe for change. The youth of India is keen to explore the new and this augurs well for a brand like ours which thrives on building different categories in every market that we operate in. We hope that the SR150 RACE brings our patrons even closer to the racy appeal they long for in their daily rides and changes, yet again, the way India purchases its 2-wheelers.”
Offering a perspective on the competitive pricing of the SR150 RACE, Mr. Pelle went on to add, “Our philosophy as a company is to do things differently. This is clearly evident from our range of offerings in India and the fact that we have been fairly successful in winning the patronage of our esteemed customers.
To this end, we have priced the SR150 RACE at a point which makes it appeal to the youth who are driven by quality and differentiation in all their adventures. We hope that the SR150 RACE meets with the same success as the SR150 and we look forward to further consolidating Aprilia’s crossover sport-scooter proposition in the country.”
