There is some positive news for those who are looking forward to the Aprilia SXR 160. According to the latest report, the Maxi-style scooter will hit dealerships in the next two weeks with the launch likely to take place in the first week of December. Then there is a news regarding that our sources have suggested Aprilia SXR 160 maxi scooter in Nepal will be launched by next year. The scooter will be based on the same platform as the SR160. Plus, the scooter is likely to be priced at around Rs 3 to 4 lakhs. There is no news regarding its particular date for the launch of scooter in Nepal.
The Aprilia SXR 160 looks stylish and features a full LED headlight, LED DRL lights, an LED taillight, high windscreen, a digital console, a plush seat, and an extended floor. It also has extra storage space in the front apron and a portable charging port in case your smartphone's battery runs out. While details are scant, we believe the SXR160 will run on the same 160cc BS6 single-cylinder engine seen in the SR160. Produces a maximum power of 11 hp and a maximum torque of 11.6 Nm. We expect the Aprilia SXR 160 to have slightly different tuning cases. But we wouldn't be surprised if the scooter had the same tune as 160 SR to keep costs under control.
The scooter uses a telescopic fork, monoshock and the scooter rides on what appears to be 12-inch alloy wheels on both ends. Brakes include a front disc with single-channel ABS and a rear drum. Unlike the Aprilia SR 160 that rides on 14-inch wheels, the SXR 160 uses 12-inch wheels which should increase the underseat storage space. There are no rivals to this scooter in its segment but the closest alternative is the Suzuki Burgman Street BS6. Once launched, it will be a more premium and powerful alternative to the Suzuki Burgman BS6 Maxi scooter. Suzuki Burgman BS6 Maxi scooter in Nepal is likely to be launched by next year.
