“After the great success achieved in India in just a few months since its debut, we are delighted to launch the long-awaited Aprilia SXR 160 premium scooter on the Nepalese market," said Piaggio India CEO Diego Graffi.

The Noale manufacturer claims that its scooter provides an ergonomic riding position thanks to its oversize saddle and flat footboard. Furthermore, the scooter is said to offer a number of features to enhance the overall riding experience such as LED lights, 12-inch and 5-spoke alloy wheel rims.

“The Aprilia SXR 160 is a synonym for style, outstanding performance, and superior comfort. It was designed in Italy and we believe that, together with Vespa, it will set high standards on the top-end two-wheeler market in Nepal and pave the way for further expansion of the Piaggio Group in the country."
