TVS NTorq 125: Variants Explained
The newly introduced Race XP variant has made the NTorq 125 range even more versatile for buyers of different budgets. Here’s what the other variants offer
TVS has made sure even the entry-level variant of the NTorq 125 doesn’t feel too barebones. It comes with modern features, such as a segment-first smartphone-compatible LCD instrument cluster with turn-by-turn navigation, sporty styling, LED tail lamp, engine kill switch, external fuel tank cap, a generous 22-litre underseat storage with LED illumination, and an optional USB charging port.
The standard variant is further divided into front disc and drum brake-equipped models. The former features a 220mm petal disc whereas the latter comes with a 130mm drum, both working alongside a 130mm rear drum with standard CBS. TVS offers the drum brake-equipped variant only in two colours: Metallic Blue and Metallic Grey. On the other hand, the front disc brake-equipped model is available in Matte Red, Metallic Blue, Metallic Grey, and Metallic Red. All the colour variants come in dual-tone schemes with blacked-out panels running down the centre of the scooter. The drum-brake equipped model retails at Rs 71,095 whereas the front disc version will set you back by Rs 75,395.
As the name suggests, the Race Edition features a unique, sportier colour scheme with slightly more pronounced chequered patterns on the sides and the apron. It’s available in two colours: Race Edition Red and Race Edition Yellow. More importantly, this variant gets an all-LED headlamp and a hazard lamp switch on the right switchgear.

The TVS NTorq 125 is designed to appeal to the youth, and TVS raised the stakes by collaborating with Marvel to launch the SuperSquad Edition in January 2021. This is essentially the Race Edition variant draped in a tasteful Marvel heroes-inspired livery. It comes in three colour options: Combat Blue (inspired by Captain America), Stealth Black (Black Panther), and Invincible Red (Iron Man). There are plenty of easter eggs peppered around all three colour variants. You can read all about them in our detailed photo gallery here. Additionally, all the colour variants feature a customised user interface in the smartphone app. The SuperSquad Edition is priced at Rs 81,075. It is also the only scooter in the country based on pop culture icons.
Race XP Edition
The just-launched Race XP edition, the NTorq 125’s top-of-the-line variant, is also the sportiest and most feature-packed of the lineup. It is essentially the Race Edition on steroids, retailing at Rs 83,275, a premium of just Rs 4,900 over the former. Despite the small premium, the scooter is loaded with performance-oriented and practical features. To begin with, the engine has been tuned to offer slightly more power and torque, and it is now the most powerful scooter in its class! Besides, TVS has equipped the scooter with two riding modes: Race and Street. The former enhances the acceleration and offers a claimed top speed of 98kmph whereas the latter emphasises mileage, making it ideal for traffic-riddled roads.
TVS has also enhanced the smartphone-compatible instrument cluster with voice assist. It’s capable of identifying several voice commands through a compatible third-party Bluetooth listening device. You can read more about this iteration here. This variant is available only in one colour scheme: a triple-tone red, white, and black combo with red alloy wheels. This is also the only variant to get coloured wheels.
