Aprilia launches MotoGP-inspired SR GT

The Aprilia SR GT is touted as an urban adventure scooter that looks like its MotoGP bike.

The Aprilia scooter range gets a touch of MotoGP styling with the introduction of the SR GT Replica. This so-called ‘Urban Adventure” scooter is modelled on the RS-GP factory race bikes ridden by Aleix Espargaró and Maverick Viñales.

Its mostly matt black look has flashes of red and purple graphics and sections of the Aprilia logo running down the centre tunnel. The wheel rims are also painted black and have red rim stripes. Aprilia also includes the racing numbers of its two factory riders in case owners want to add a bit more customisation. They also come shod with all-terrain tyres that can cope with virtually anything that’s thrown at the SR GT, from cracked city tarmac to unpaved trails.

That versatility should make it fun to ride, and its size means it’ll be comfortable over longer journeys too. The riding position is more like a bigger bike, with wider handlebars to provide better control for the rider. Long-travel suspension can soak up bigger bumps and the increase in ride height that comes as a result of that suspension setup makes getting up kerbs to parking spots easier.

Two engine options for Aprilia SR GT

There are two engines available to order with the Aprilia SR GT from the i-get family. Both are liquid-cooled, Euro 5 compliant, featuring electronic injection and four-valve timing. The 125cc has a power output of 11kW at 8,750rpm and a maximum torque output of 12Nm at 6,500rpm. A newer 174cc engine, which made its debut in the Aprilia SR GT 200, makes 13Kw at 8,500rpm and 16.5Nm of torque at 7,000rpm.

While not as overtly off-road as the Honda X-ADV, the Aprilia SR GT still has plenty of presence and its latest MotoGP look makes it look even sportier. All that’s missing is an even punchier engine to match its appearance.
