We managed to have a quick look at the scooter that was on display at an Aprilla showroom KN Mototech Margao
First showcased by Aprilla at the 2018 Delhi Auto Expo, the new Storm 125 has been a much awaited model to launch in the Indian market. However the launch though expected to happen within 2018 itself was delayed due to unknown reasons. Nevertheless the Scooter has now been launched for a price tag of Rs 65,000 (ex showroom prices).
Design wise, the Storm looks the same as its standard SR sibling and is offered in three matte colour schemes Yellow, Black and Red along with black Storm graphics on the front apron and side fender. The Storm 125 also rides on smaller 12-inch wheels a fair downsize from the 14-inchers on the regular SR scooter range.
Powering the Storm 125 is an air cooled motor producing 9.5 bhp and 9.9Nm of torque and come mated to an automatic transmission. Braking duties are handled by a CBS braking system along with a drum brake.
