Suzuki Burgman Rival Aprilia SXR125 Maxi Scooter Launched At Rs 1.14 Lakh
Expanding its footprints in the Indian market, Italian two-wheeler manufacturer Aprilia has launched its new SXR 125 maxi-styled scooter at Rs 1.14 lakh (ex-showroom Pune). At this price point, it is Rs 11,000 more affordable than its elder sibling SXR160. However, compared to its core rival, Suzuki Burgman Street (Rs 82,700 to Rs 86,200), the scooter demands approximately Rs 30,000 extra. For this added premium, you will get a more powerful engine and a more appealing layout.
