Along with a new design and LED headlight, the scooter will also benefit from fully digital instrumentation as part of its update.
The Aprilia SR 160 has been spotted in an updated form, with a new design and an LED headlight. It should be launched in the next few days, with a small price increase compared to the existing scooter, which costs Rs 1.08 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
Will also get digital instrumentation
Scheduled for a holiday season launch
The mechanics should remain unchanged
A test mule from the SR 160 was spotted a few months ago with a fully digital instrument cluster, and this will now be added to the production scooter as part of its update. The display appears to be derived from the SXR 160 and may feature Bluetooth connectivity. This latest observation shows the scooter apparently in production-ready form, indicating that an official launch is expected to be imminent.
On the design side, the front apron has been redesigned and now sports a V-shaped LED headlight that greatly modernizes the overall appearance of the aging scooter. The handlebar fairing has also been modified, now with a pair of shovels on the central part. It continues to house the front turn signals, which do not appear to have received the LED treatment.
Another major change is to the seat – or rather the seats – as the updated SR 160 appears to sport a unique split seat design, and there appears to be more room to sit for both rider and rider. passenger, compared to the previous monobloc seat.
We expect the updated SR 160 to remain mechanically unchanged, meaning the 11.6Nm air-cooled 160.03cc single-cylinder engine will continue. The suspension comes in the form of a conventional telescopic fork and monoshock, and the SR is equipped with a front disc brake.
