TVS NTorq 125: Everything You Need To Know
Here’s what else is new apart from the ‘Race Edition’ suffix and three-tone paint job
The TVS NTorq 125 still stands as one of the best value for money proposition in the 125cc scooter segment. It packs one heck of a motor, features that are second to none and comfortable ergonomics. TVS has now updated the scooter to keep it in fighting shape. So if you are planning to get one for yourself, here’s everything you need to know about TVS’ flagship scooter.
Gets a new design:
TVS has launched an updated version of the NTorq 125 called the NTorq 125 Race Edition. The new scooter features a few updates to stand out from the regular model. The biggest change comes in the form of a new full-LED headlamp. It also gets hazard lamps which can be enabled via a red button on the switchgear.
The scooter also gets a new three-tone paint scheme with sporty chequered graphics which helps differentiate the Race Edition apart from the previous-gen NTorq 125s. What remains unchanged are the body panels, seat, turn indicators and rear tail lamp design. The same goes for the wheels and exhaust muffler as well.
The NTorq 125 is still one the most feature-packed petrol-powered scooters in the Indian market. The full-digital instrument console gets Bluetooth connectivity and a slew of information is displayed on the panel and can be accessed via the NTorq app as well. Once synced, the app offers information which includes the scooters' last parked location, last ride report with the distance covered, top speed, and also built-in navigation courtesy of MapMyIndia. Owners can even search for nearby petrol pumps, hospitals, restaurants and authorized service stations using the app.
Other notable features include rider name customization which pops up every time you turn on the ignition. There’s also a ‘do not disturb’ mode, auto-reply SMS and overs-speeding alert, all of which can be accessed in ‘Street Mode,’ while ‘Sport Mode’ allows riders to record top speed and lap times.
The NTorq 125 is powered by a carburetted 124.79cc motor that offers 9.4PS and 10.5Nm of torque. That said, we expect TVS to launch the BS6-compliant NTorq 125 soon with a fuel-injected motor just like the recently launched BS6 Jupiter.
The NTorq 125 uses a telescopic front fork and a gas-charged monoshock at the rear. The 12-inch alloys get fat tubeless tyres while braking is handled by a front disc and rear drum with CBS as standard.
Value for money proposition:
The latest iteration, called the NTorq 125 Race Edition, is priced at Rs 62,995 (ex-showroom Delhi). That's a premium of Rs 3,000 over the standard NTorq 125 with disc brake. Admittedly, the price is a tad high, but the Race Edition does make up for the asking price with more features and cosmetic updates.
