Aprilia STX/ETX 150 is a new bike model in Singapore and I cannot find any thread so I decided to start one. Before we post anything, lets see what the bike looks like and who knows we can get new riders who is interested in the bike!
Aprilia STX 150 - Street fighter style
Aprilia ETX 150 - Off road enduro style
The price difference of both bike is $500 for the inverted fork, enduro tyre and front brake system on the ETX 150.
I did some research and found out that the bike is branded differently in different countries. In Pakistan, it is branded as Derbi while in Spain or Singapore, it is branded as Aprilia. From what I understand, the bike is collaboration between Piaggio and Zhongshen AutoParts. Aprilia and Derbi is owned by Piaggio hence Piaggio is able to brand the bike differently.
Another thing that I found and like is that the bike can hold 18 litres of petrol capacity. 3 litres of petrol can last for 100km or 35km per litre and that amounts to 600km mileage. I do not know if this is possible or not but it seems good.
I placed my order for ETX 150 in black today and was the 13th person. Unique Motorsport is bringing in 18 of this bike for the first batch and there are 5 more available. Hope to meet other 12 riders for this bike and the next 5 lucky riders to owe the bike so that we can help each other out and have ridings together. Cheers!
