About Aprilia Bike
Aprilia is an Italian motorcycle company which started off as a bicycle manufacturer after the Second World War. The company was founded by Cavalier Alberto Beggio, who at first intended to manufacture bicycles to ease off his weak financial situation but, all of this changed when his son, Ivan Beggio, joined the company in 1968.
Helped by a small team, it was Ivan Beggio who built the first Aprilia motorcycle, a 50cc model painted in gold and blue. As the model registered moderate success, they continued making motor vehicles and hence, produced the first Aprilia mopeds, the Colibri and Daniela.
However, the first ‘true motorcycle’ from Aprilia was the 50cc Scarabeo motocross bike in 1970 which was produced until the mid-seventies, in different versions ranging from 50cc to 125cc. Despite Scarabeo’s success, what many consider the first true motocross bike from Aprilia did not come until 1974 and this model was tested by Italian racer Maurizio Sgarzani. After undergoing numerous tests, they developed a street bike from this cross model, called the RC 125. This model was presented at the Milan Salon and was very well received by the public.
It wasn't until the 1980s that Aprilia introduced endurance, trial and road bikes to its range. In 1981, they presented the TL 320 trial bike and two years later, the ST 125. Then, in 1984, they released an improved model, named STX and an enduro bike called ET 50.
What is perhaps considered to be the most important motorcycle from Aprilia didn't come until 1998, when the Italian manufacturer launched the RSV Mille, a 1,000cc V2 superbike and a sports tourer called Falco, which also had a 1,000cc V2 engine. In 2004, Aprilia Bike was acquired by Piaggio which gave the brand a big boost in terms of both production capability and technological advancement. The management of Aprilia was taken over by Roberto Colaninno, while the company's founder, Ivan Beggio was made the Honorary President.
Piaggio entered the Indian two-wheeler market in 2015 by launching the first Aprilia two wheeler dealership in Pune in November 2015. This ‘Motoplex’ showroom was the first one from the company in all of Asia. Initially, the Aprilia bike models on offer were the RSV4, Tuono V4, Caponord 1200, Dorsoduro 1200 and the SRV 850 ABS two wheeler. While all these models were pure CBU imports, Aprilia’s first locally-assembled two wheeler, the SR 150, was launched in 2016.
The range of Aprilia bikes in India consists of the SR 125, SR 150, Shiver 900, Dorsoduro 900, Dorsoduro 1200, Caponord 1200, Tuono V4 1100, RSV4 RR and the RSV4 RF which form the company’s 2018 product line-up.
Aprilia bike prices in India start at around ₹66,900 for the 2018 SR 125 and go up to ₹26.06 lakh for the 2018 RSV4 RF. All Aprilia bike price listings can be found on the website of autoX.
