    We put the smaller iteration of Aprilia's maxi-style scooter through its paces.

    Walking up to the SXR 125 test scooter, the one affirmation that resounds in my head is that Italians are masters at making anything look good. Besides the lovely stealth-black paint job on our test bike, the LED headlights catch your attention, while also doing a pretty good job of illuminating a dark road. Speaking of attention, the number of eyeballs that the SXR125 attracts is unlike any scooter I’ve ever seen.

    In terms of ergonomics, the seat is large enough to accommodate two adults, while the floorboard has decent space. However, the awkward angle of the footrest behind the apron makes it unusable in true maxi-scooter style. Also, 6ft-plus Rishaad wasn't happy with the shape of the single-piece seat, as he was seated right where it curves upwards to the pillion seat. He also wished that the handlebar was a tad wider.
