Aprilia unveils new scooters and motorcycles at EICMA 2021
Aprilia has announced a range of two-wheelers at the EICMA 2021. The newly-announced vehicles include the SR GT scooters and the Tuono 660 Factory and RS 660 Limited Edition bikes. The SR GT scooters come in two trims, while the Tuono 660 Factory is a higher-spec variant of the standard model. The RS 660 Limited Edition will see only 1,500 units.
Why does this story matter?
The new two-wheelers expand the company's portfolio. The SR GT is Aprilia's first urban adventure scooter and will attract young audiences. It shares some design elements with the SXR scooter on sale in India. Separately, the Tuono 660 Factory is a slightly enhanced model of the regular Tuono 660 while the RS 660 Limited Edition will appeal to Aprilia fans given its unique bodywork.
Aprilia SR GT 125
The Aprilia SR GT 125 features an aggressive design with a tri-LED headlamp cluster, a smoked windscreen, a prominent beak, and a single-piece seat. It runs on a 125cc engine that makes 15hp/12Nm. Suspension duties are handled by a 33mm fork up front and twin shock absorbers on the rear. The two-wheeler weighs 144kg and has an underseat storage capacity of 25-liter.
Aprilia SR GT 200
Aprilia SR GT 200 has similar design features as the 125cc model. However, it weighs 4kg more to tip the scales at 148kg.
