Aprilia is known for its high quality products worldwide and the plan for the launch of an entry level scooter in Nepal would surely be good news to all. The definition of entry level may seems boring while you listen but viewing the machine would definitely cheer up the fans with a new addition into the Nepali scooter market.
It comes with a different design than most of the scooters available currently in the market and even different than most of the scooters ready for launch in Nepal. It has big wheels, lean body design and plenty of sharp edges around its body. The scooter looks sport from every angle and its headlight has been integrated into its front body instead of the handlebar assembly. It resembles a mini motorcycle from many angles, such as rear, with its grab rails being totally different from the current offerings.
The power to the scooter comes from a 124 cc, 1-cylinder air cooled engine, producing 9.46 BHP @ 8500 rpm and 8.2 NM @ 7500 rpm. The CVT has been used for the gearbox purpose and a 220 mm disc brake on the front makes it safer than others. It comes with a 7 litre fuel tank and a weight of 122 kg, when filled with fuel.
With the seat height of 775 mm and 14 inch tyres, the scooter makes it a good choice for Nepali road conditions. The tyre size for both the wheels is 120/70-14. The scooter has a price tag of NRs. 2,35,900 which if shortened by Rs. 40,000 will result in a really tough competition to Yamaha Fascino.
