On the off chance that presentation is your greatest turn-on. At that point the SR is the perfect bike for you. Aprilia have refreshed the reach to meet the tough BS6 standards with a bigger limit motor. Hopping from the prior 154.8-cc unit to a 160.03-cc one with fuel-infusion. The thought to guarantee that the force, the key element for the SR range, wasn’t undermined.
The bike is presently accessible in three forms: SR 160, Carbon, and Race. There’s very little change as far as plan, aside from the somewhat unique shading plan. On the off chance that you look nearer. However, you will see another single-barrel headlamp which looks in a way that is better than the more seasoned double barrel unit. The norm bike is accessible in the recognizable dark and-red blend and the Carbon follows an all-dark topic with some red specifying.
Aprilia SR 160 Race
The Race basically a similar bike except for a marginally re-tuned CVT with various course for better wretched execution and a lot of Ceat tires. This sportier variation comes in matte dark body tone with RS-GP 20-propelled uniform and furthermore the mark splendid red paint on the haggles monoshock alongside a gold-completed Bybre caliper. It’s likely the most forceful glancing bike on the lookout.
The SR range actually feels fun and enthusiastic to ride however insignificantly less forceful than the BS4 rendition — a typical characteristic seen on numerous models attempting to accomplish cleaner discharges. During our short ride insight, it was hard to pass judgment if the Race, which is supposed to be the livelier of the parcel, could in reality satisfy its guarantee. The thing that matters is inconspicuous to the point that we’ll have to test it with the DriftBox to find a solution.
Generally speaking, the force conveyance is direct and the bikes hit 60 km/h before you know it and easily go past 80 km/h whenever given an opportunity. It will be fascinating to check whether the BS6 adaptations can coordinate the under seven seconds 0-100 km/h season of the active model.
Ride and Handling
In spite of the fact that there aren’t any adjustments in the skeleton and other cycle parts, the SR 160 gets new MRF tires on its 14-inch wheels, supplanting the imported Vee Rubber tires. These intrigued us more with their boss grasp when contrasted with the Ceats of the Race. Aprilia have been continually chipping away at the
suspension set-up, which, in the more established model, was somewhat firm. The retuned front fork accompanies a 30-mm inward cylinder which guarantees an additionally lenient ride. Out and about, in any case, the change is scarcely perceptible and the greater part of the messed up way actually channels through to your wrists. It’s on winding streets that the SR range genuinely sparkles, offering bike like nimbleness and confidence.They additionally have terrific slowing down, gratitude to the huge 220-mm circle helped by ABS, which further lifts the rider’s certainty.
The mix of an energetic motor, great brakes, and agile taking care of is something most different bikes can just envy. However, for that you need to dish out a premium. Rs 1.03 lakh (ex-showroom) for the standard SR 160, while the Race requests another Rs 7,000. That is basically what you’d pay for some outrageous 160-cc bikes.
