    Aprilia has taken the wraps off its SR Max250 HPE (High Performance Edition) scooter in China. This maxi-scooter is sold exclusively in the Chinese market at the moment, with nothing revealed about its launch in other markets.

    Aprilia SR Max250 HPE: underpinnings, features

    Powering this maxi-scooter is a liquid-cooled, single-cylinder, 244c engine that makes 26hp and 22.5Nm, which, even by motorbike standards, is pretty punchy. Suspension duties are handled by a telescopic fork at the front and twin gas-charged shocks at the rear. As is expected of a premium maxi-scooter, dual-channel ABS is standard on the Aprilia. 

    At 15 litres, the fuel tank is considerably larger than any other maxi-scooter and even a few motorbikes. The seat height is adjustable between 775mm and 815mm, catering to riders of all sizes.

    The features list is as impressive as the spec sheet. A full-colour 7-inch TFT display is on offer. Through that large dash, two riding modes can be toggled through namely, Sport and Eco. Another unique feature is the inclusion of a (rudimentary) traction control system, something not too common in the maxi-scooter space. 

    Aprilia SR Max250 HPE: will it ever make it to India?

    Currently, Aprilia only sells small-capacity, air-cooled scooters in India, much further down the food chain compared to this one. They are all made entirely in India, ensuring a relatively competitive price point. It is highly unlikely the Aprilia SR Max250 HPE will make its way to our shores given the small market for this sort of product here. 

    If the Noale-based company were to manufacture it here, however, it could rival the recently launched Keeway Vieste 300, priced at Rs. 2.99 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
