NEW DELHI: Italy's Piaggio Group is set to introduce the Aprilia brand of scooters in India next month with the launch of Aprilia SR 150 to be tagged at an introductory price of Rs 65,000.
 
The Aprilia SR 150 has been designed and engineered in Italy and will be manufactured at Piaggio's India plant in Baramati, Maharashtra.

The company will introduce the Aprilia SR 150 in India in August 2016. It is looking at positioning the Aprilia SR 150 as a crossover that combines the feel of a sports bike with the ease of a scooter.

The design aesthetics of the SR 150 reflect the sporty character of the Aprilia brand with a light weight engine which creates a new category in India's the scooter segment, he added.
 
The Aprilia SR 150 be powered by a single cylinder 150cc, 4-stroke engine.
