After launching the Aprilia SR150 ABS variant in India and in 2019 the Aprilia Storm 125, the Italian giant is now said to be working on a brand new build from ground-up, a more affordable and comfortable Aprilia Scooter which will go by the name as Aprilia Comfort. As the name suggests, this will be highly focused on not only being comfortable but also practical as well as being highly fuel economical. This new champ from the Aprilia-Piaggio family is set to take on the likes of Honda Activa and TVS N-torq. A new storm in the commuter scooter segment is coming your way and below you will know how.
Following are the various Features and aspects of the upcoming Aprilia Comfort:
- Aprilia Comfort will feature a larger and comfortable Seat
- It will be Powered by a highly refined 125cc Engine
- Wider footboard and more luggage space
- A softer suspension setup which will be a totally opposite to the SR150
- A highly refined engine for a Fuel economy/Mileage of 48 to 52Kmpl
- 12-inch or larger wheels set-up with front disc-brake
Apart from this, the Aprilia Comfort will be a CVT and chances are high that the same Aprilia SR125 engine will be used here with a different state of tune for better mileage which is what sells scooters in India and looks like Piaggio now knows that; better late than never.
There’s an also a high possibility that the Comfort could probably be also based on the Aprilia SportCity or another possibility is that it could be similar like the Piaggio Liberty 125. Because parts sharing is common and you can see where this is going and what’s their vision for India is right now.

Even though no matter how good these scooters are, everything comes down to the pricing and the expected price for the Aprilia Comfort will be about 70,999/- Ex-Showroom Delhi, on road, you can guess it right? With that 5-years mandatory insurance and RTO could peg it up to 80k INR. Which is great pricing considering you’re getting the Aprilia brand name, which synonymous to great racing heritage.
