About Aprilia RS 150

 

The Aprilia RS 150 is a supersport in much the vein of the Yamaha YZF-R15. It is derived
from the RS 125, a 125cc supersport that is popular in the European market. However, the 150 has, as the name suggests, a 150cc engine. It will have four valves, fuel injection and liquid cooling and generate around 18bhp. The concept on display at the Auto Expo also had a quickshifter for the six-speed gearbox, but we do not expect this to make it to production to save costs. Also on the chopping block are the upside down front forks, radially mounted, fixed brake callipers, and ABS. The RS150 should debut sometime in late 2018 or early 2019 (Tentative) and will compete with the Yamaha YZF-R15 V3 and the KTM RC200.

VERDICT

Aprilia RS 150 looks damn sporty and just looks like its on beast mode for being a 150cc motorcycle. It comes with a dual channel ABS and is really a head turner but we can’t comment that the product shown in the AutoExpo would be the same model that will hit the roads. But we can say one thing its japanese rivals must be in tension specially Yamaha YZF R15 as it has ruled the indian marked for 150cc sport bike and now there is someone to give them a strong challenge.

But in the starting batch there are some concerns related to the after sales service network and long life.

We can only hope for the best now because the India Two-wheeler market is growing at a very fast pace and that is the great news for the bike enthusiasts.
