    The SR GT is the company’s first ‘urban adventure scooter’. Its design draws inspiration from other Aprilia models, with few elements being similar to the SXR scooter on sale in India. The signature tri-LED headlight up front, smoked windscreen and sharp tail-light are some design cues that stand out.

    Powering the SR GT 125 is a 125cc, single-cylinder engine that makes an impressive 15hp and 12Nm of torque. The SR GT 200, on the other hand, is powered by a 174cc, single-cylinder unit that makes 17.6hp and 16.5Nm of torque.

    Suspension duty is handled by a 33mm fork and twin rear shock absorbers. The SR GT’s also use 14-inch and 13-inch wheels at the front and rear, respectively. The SR GT 125 has a kerb weight of 144kg, while the SR GT 200 weighs 4kg more. The scooters have an underseat storage capacity of 25 litres and 9-litre fuel tanks.

    The Tuono 660 Factory is now the top-spec variant of the motorbike and gets a new, fully adjustable 41mm Kayaba fork and a Sachs monoshock. In Factory trim, you also get a lightweight lithium battery that Aprilia claims has helped reduce the kerb weight by 2kg.

    While the engine and electronics are similar to the standard bike, the Factory variant additionally gets cornering lights, along with new colour scheme and tail cowl.
