Aprilia GPR250R price is approximately 45,000 higher than the smaller sibling GPR150R. Shall we wait, Aprilia…?
July 2021 kickstarts with Aprilia launching the most awaited-quarter litre GPR250R and the entry-level GPR150R bikes in China.
The much awaited GPR250R costs 26800 Yuan which is roughly close to INR 3.10 Lac. Its lesser sibling, the GPR150R ABS model carries a price tag of 22,980 Yuan (approx. INR 2.64 Lac). The non-ABS version of the 150cc Aprilia is priced at 20,980 Yuan (INR 2.41 Lac).
While we are talking about 150cc and 250cc motorcycles, these Aprilia bikes still carry the track-ready DNA from the bigger liter class cousins.
The Aprilia GPR250R has a double-wing beam aluminum hollow frame body. It offers suspension designed for track racing. Aprilia is also providing slipper clutch on the GPR250R and it is equipped with a Bosch EFI system.
The GPR250R has a 250cc single-cylinder water-cooled four-valve DOHC engine at its heart. It can churn out 20.5 kW (27.87 PS) of power at 9500 RPM and a max torque of 21.5 Nm.
In terms of features, the quarter liter packs LED headlights, a TFT LCD screen, aluminum alloy wheels at the front and rear tyres along with USD forks. The GPR150R has been refreshed without any mechanical changes to it.
The quarter-liter GPR250R and GPR150R borrow their looks from the brilliant RSV4. The design is really very eye-catchy.
Back in 2018, at the Auto Expo, Aprilia revealed the RS150 as a concept. However, later the Italian maker scrapped the idea and mentioned about making bigger bikes for the Indian market.
The sports 150cc and 250cc market is already seeing a strong presence of other brands. More than a belief, we hope that Aprilia considers the GPR250R for our Indian market.
