The updated version of Aprilia SR 160 has been spotted testing with the feature of the fully digital instrument cluster. While SXR model range of the scooter maker boasts of a fully digital display unit, SR models come with more basic semi-digital type of instrumentation display. However, it seems that the company has decided to change this by equipping updated SR 160 with the instrument cluster which is fully digital in the display.
It makes sense for the Aprilia to start integrating the new feature on its more expensive SR160 model and then subsequently, bringing it to the more affordable SR 125. The spotted cluster is similar in size and layout and akin to what we have already seen on the models such as SXR 160 and SXR 125.
The display boasts a digital speedometer, digital tachometer, data related to real-time fuel consumption, trip information, and log of top-speed attained. When Aprilia launched its SXR models, it promised to introduce the feature of Bluetooth connectivity which is, in fact, now available in the SR 160 model. This also indicates that SR models will also get Bluetooth connectivity as a standard part of the equipment soon in the future.
It is also possible that SR 160 will come with a fully digital instrument cluster as an option or a separate variant. Just like we have SR 125 with two different variants on offer (analogue instrumentation variant and semi-digital variant), SR 160 might also take the same route when it gets its market launch. Just so you know, SR 160 comes at an asking price of Rs 1.08 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and the addition of the fully digital instrument cluster is likely to increase its price anywhere between Rs 3000 and Rs 5000.
