Aprilia Strom 125 will be the Sportiest Scooter from the Italian Brand in India
Aprilia Storm 125 was first showcased in 2018 Auto Expo. The scooter is actually a sportier version of Aprilia SR125. Storm 125 was on display with two attractive colors – Matte Red and Matt Yellow. The scooter gets smaller, knobby and scrambler like tyres.
Powering the Aprilia Storm 125 is the same 125 cc engine which does duty on SR 125 Scooter. The engine pumps out 9.5 bhp of power and 9.9 Nm twisting force. The engine is, as usual, single cylinder and will be forced air-cooled. Moreover, the tyres in Storm 125 are a smaller 12-inch unit but wrapped with fat and knobby 120/80 tyre at the front and 130/80 section rubber at the rear (We don’t actually have any idea why so fat rubber are employed for a puny engine). The display scooter had imported tyres but when the scooter will launch in India it will feature Indian made rubber in order to keep the cost low.
