Aprilia SR 125 Top Speed & Acceleration
The sporty Italian scooter for the Indian masses, the Aprilia SR 125, has a top speed of 115km/h. Claims have been made by many that the SR 125 can reach its 120km/h limit. With an acceleration of 0-60km/h in around 5.8 seconds, we really think the Aprilia SR 125 can attain such speeds.

Thoughts On The Aprilia SR 125
The Aprilia SR 125 is aimed to be a sporty scooter and concentrates less on practicality. The SR 150 was the best thing, young riders whose parents wouldn't let buy them a motorcycle, could get. The Aprilia SR 125 is just that, but at a lesser cost.
