        To our ears, hearing Aprilia instantly makes us think of big-bore, high-performance Italian motorcycles. But in other markets, the Noale-based manufacturer also produces small-displacement scooters for the commuter segment.

        One such scooter is the SXR 160, a premium model designed in Italy and built in India. Combining Aprilia styling and character with comfortable maxi-scooter-like ergonomics, the SXR 160 is an affordable and accessible way to experience the Italian brand’s quality.

        The SXR 160 is doing so well in India, in fact, that it was crowned as Scooter of the Year 2021 by Autocar India and Best Two-Wheeler at the Indian Auto Expo 2020. Top Gear India seemed particularly pleased with this scooter as well, awarding it the 2021 Scooter of the Year honors, citing its “distinctive and innovative character, premium technology and superior comfort.”

        What makes the SXR 160 so special? Perhaps it’s the combination of Italian style, maxi-scooter comfort, and ample performance combined with Aprilia-quality fit and finish. Standout features on this scooter include: an ergonomic riding position on an oversized saddle, a spacious flat footboard, an integrated windscreen, USB charging port-equipped front storage compartment, large under seat storage with lighting, LED illumination, a multifunction digital display, ABS, and a 160cc single-cylinder engine.

        Think Aprilia should bring this premium commuter over to the Philippine market? We certainly think it might be competitive in the 150-160cc segment that’s all the rage these days.
