5 Most Affordable Two-wheelers With Connectivity Features In India
Stay connected on the go with these two-wheelers
Riding is no longer just two wheels and an engine. Staying connected on the go is becoming popular by the day. Be it turn-by-turn navigation to music controls, the riding experience is getting smarter. So, here are five most affordable two-wheelers that have connectivity features.
1. TVS NTorq 125
We were pleasantly surprised to find this all-digital dash on the TVS NTorq 125. For starters, it was just a scooter. At the time, the most affordable two-wheeler with some form of Bluetooth-connectivity was the 390 Duke. The dash can be connected to your Android phone via the SmartXonnect App. It allows you to check back on the ride data statistics as well as feed in the location for turn-by-turn navigation. You do get incoming call alerts. The NTorq 125 remains the most affordable way to get a connected two-wheeler.
2. Aprilia SR 125
In 2018, Piaggio introduced the Connectivity Bluetooth module for the Aprilia SR siblings as well as for a few Vespa models. This is perhaps the most basic of the modules here as the app is mainly useful for riding statistics as well as scooter maintenance. The navigation system works off the smartphone and there is no display of information on the scooter’s info cluster what-so-ever. Also to get this system on the SR 125, you have to pay a nominal fee.
3. Hero XPulse 200 twins
Hero’s all-new digital dash on the XPulse 200 (as well as on the Xpulse 200T and Xtreme 200S) is a fancier take on the system found on the NTorq 125. The tech remains the same but the display section is better as you get a better depiction of the directional signs. Plus, this module uses Google Maps and not Map My India, which the TVS uses. The latter is not as user friendly.
4. Ather 450
A colour touchscreen dash is not something that we see often on any two-wheeler, but Ather boldly gave us this tech which has an IP65 rating. This screen helps you give a proper navigational system and not just a turn-by-turn kind. Plus, you get battery usage statistics in addition to the usual ride data.
5. 22Kymco iFlow
At the launch of the scooter, 22Kymco has said that all of its scooters will get the Noodoe Bluetooth module, including the iFlow. It gets AI features which helps the scooter understand your riding behaviour and give preemptive maintenance alerts to your smartphone.
