Aprilia RS 150 Preview
Showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo, Aprilia is planning to introduce two new 150cc motorcycles in India. One of them is the RS 150, which is essentially a fully-faired sports bike with a commendable design.
Some of its design highlights include aggressive twin headlamps at the front, a grooved fuel tank, and a floating rear tail. All in all, the Aprilia RS 150 carries a distinctive appeal, which is enough to stir the segment. But what about its powertrain?
Aprilia had mentioned that the SR 150 will be powered by a 150cc fuel-injected motor, which is good for 17bhp of power and 14Nm of torque. The power will be sent to the rear wheel via a six-speed gearbox. The bike showcased also featured a quick-shifter, but it might not make it to the production version.
The RS 150 is slated for launch by the end of this year at an expected price tag of Rs.1.5 lakh. At this price, the RS 150 will be going up against some established leaders in the segment like the Yamaha YZF-R15 and Suzuki Gixxer SF.
