The NTorq 125 Race Edition gets an LED headlamp, new colour options, sporty graphics and a segment-first hazard lamp. Apart from this, the scooter remains exactly the same as the standard model.
However, with new emission norms all set to kick in next year, TVS could have launched a BS6-compliant version with these new features and could have helped create a ripple in the 125cc scooter segment. Currently, only the new Activa 125 is BS6-compliant and it is priced from Rs 67,000 to Rs 75,000 (ex-showroom Delhi). In terms of rivals, the NTorq 125 goes up against the Aprilia SR 125.
