Aprilia scooter range receives another price-hike in India: Check prices
Aprilia has announced a price hike for its scooter range in India. It is a second revision for the entire line-up this year. To recall, the prices of the SR and SXR series of scooters had already gone up by around Rs. 6,500 in the month of May. This move by the Italian automaker is likely done to counter the rising input costs.
Why does this story matter?
- Aprilia's range of two-wheelers is known for its powerful engines and excellent handling characteristics both on the road and race track.
- Until the arrival of the Yamaha Aerox 155, the Italian automaker was a go-to choice for people looking for capable and sporty scooters in India.
- The latest price hike will further dent the sales of the SR and SXR series on our shores.
