Aprilia has commenced pre-bookings of the SXR 125 in India. This is essentially the Aprilia SXR 160 with a 125cc engine, which means everything from the bodywork to the chassis is identical. Aprilia has begun production of the SXR 125 at its plant in Baramati and the scooter has arrived at a few dealerships as well.

Almost all the features that are present in the Aprilia SXR 160 have trickled down to the SXR 125. This includes all-LED lights, USB charging port, digital instrument cluster and the optional Bluetooth connectivity. However, since this is a 125cc scooter, it only gets CBS or Combined braking system instead of ABS.
