One of the newest grand touring scooters in Apirlia’s lineup is the SR Max. The scooter is available in 125 cc or 300 cc versions and its style draws inspiration from the racing world.
Its sporty lines inspire power and confidence while the compact but light nose enhances the dynamic look. We also like the silver colored grille which is inserted between the two lights and the body graphics.
The single-cylinder, 4-stroke, 4 valve 125 version delivers a maximum output of 15 HP at 9,250 rpm, while the 300 cc version is characterized by a 75 mm bore and 63 mm stroke and it reaches a maximum torque of 23 Nm at 6000 rpm.
Both 2012 Aprilia SR Max models are available in two classic and colour schemes namely the Nero Aprilia and Bianco Glam.

The sleek and sharp tail fairing enhance the explosiveness of the rear of SR Max, its agility highlighted by the generous, but slender underbelly where Aprilia is emblazoned in silver. The two-colour saddle is made from a sport fabric and is highly ergonomic: equipped with lumbar support for the rider, it guarantees comfort in any conditions; the handles which frame the rear part of the saddle guarantee safety and reliability for the passenger.
Suitable for every day travel, but also designed to provide an exciting ride for longer trips, Aprilia SR Max, in the 125 and 300 versions, has top-notch motoring qualities and cycling features in any situation. Both the SR Max 125 and the SR Max 300 have large scooter suspension: a hydraulic shock absorber with 35mm traditional telescopic fork is mounted on the front, while on the rear a pair of 3 position adjustable spring preload shock absorbers work to guarantee optimum balance of the vehicle.
The 125cc and 300cc hearts are the true strength of the Aprilia SR Max.
The single-cylinder, 4-stroke, 4 valve 125 version, equipped with electronic injection, reaches a power of 15 HP at 9,250 rpm: the maximum power and torque values are absolute benchmarks and ensure quick acceleration and disciplined pick up for the Aprilia SR Max, all to the advantage of perfect gear fluidity.
Aprilia SR Max 300 is equipped with a single cylinder 4 valve liquid cooled, electronic injected engine; characterised by a 75 mm bore and 63 mm stroke, it reaches maximum torque of 23 Nm at 6000 rpm. The result is excellent torque distribution and consequently energetic acceleration.

The Bikes World----"The Aprilia SR Max 300 is powered by a four-stroke single-cylinder 278 cc engine, pumping 21.7 bhp of peak power and 17 ft-lbs of peak torque. The engine isn’t the most powerful one, and gets beaten by the 26.82 bhp of peak power and 19.2 ft-lb of peak torque generating Honda SH300i. But considering the twist and go nature of the scooter we’d say that the SR Max gets away rather comfortably and pretty simply"
