The TVS NTorq is basically the Graphite concept in production guise, with a few of the concept’s features not making it to the production model. Otherwise, the pronounced design lines and chiseled edges have made their way on to the funky-looking scooter. The sharply raked apron with a two-tone paint scheme gets black panels running from the center, with bright matte finish colors highlighting the sharp lines of the scooter.
The V-shaped headlight is the only basic looking thing on the scooter. Instead of an LED setup the headlamp uses a halogen bulb with bright LED DRLs underneath. That said, the brightness from the headlight is admirable, with a more focused low and high beam, which can be adjusted. The Aprilia SR150-inspired front indicators look a bit plain too.
The PSP-inspired digital display comes with host of information, but we’ll get to that later. The bar-end weights iron out all the vibes off the handlebar and the switchgear quality is also the best in segment, with crisp working switches. The large indicator switch, however, will need getting used to. The TVS NTorq also gets an engine kill, a first for any modern scooter in India. The broad, rectangular mirrors provide ample rear view. We also liked the carbon texture present all across, but it can seem a bit overdone to some.
The T-shaped LED tail light flanked by jet exhaust-like vents is a very distinct part of the NTorq’s design, but we believe it might be a bit polarising in terms of opinion. We, however, like it. Furthermore, the motorcycle-like side indicators at the rear add to the sharpness of the design.
Apart from that, the red stitching on the seat with carbon fibre-style finish, machined alloy footpegs/filler cap and even the paint quality is top notch. Based on our short term experience at least, the NTorq gets a thumbs up on the fit-finish and build quality front.
But that said, the NTorq comes with a few concerns. The front mudguard is a three-piece set that is clamped together, which we think, in the long run, will be prone to rattling. Similar is the case with side panels and plastic extension under the floorboard, which are bolted together with a lot of screws. For the time being, they seem to be holding quite well but we’ll have to see whether they’ll loosen over time. The major point of concern here are wires and pipes that run around the engine bay as these are left completely exposed to rodents.
Braking and Handling
The NTorq is built around an all-new chassis, with telescopic front forks and a gas-charged rear monoshock. The balance of sportiness and comfort is spot on on the TVS NTorq. The front suspension is set on the firmer side with the rear being relatively softer. So you do get a minor thud from the front every time the scooter tackles a sharp bump, while the rear soaks up the same with ease. It deals with rough road patches with competence though, and in our opinion, has the best ride quality in this segment of scooters. Also, the 116 kg kerb weight and the chunky tyres provide immense stability and confidence on loose surfaces.
The TVS gets a soft padded seat that feels plush without being too soft like the one on the Jupiter. However, it still feels a tad soft for really long hauls in the saddle, especially if the rider is on the heavier side. The seat isn’t as long as the Jupiter’s, but proves to be comfortable for the pillion. It’s also slightly raised at the end, which makes for a more natural pillion posture. However, a generously sized pillion will find the edges of the seat a bit pokey. The NTorq comes with a tapering and narrow seat which allows shorter riders to reach the ground easily. The rider seat area is also quite low.
The TVS NTorq gets typical scooter ergonomics with an upright riding position. The handlebars are flat and higher-set, allowing for an easy and comfortable reach. This is a boon for even six-feet tall riders as they can manoeuvre the TVS NTorq with ease and without having the handlebar hitting the knees in tight turns.
Thanks to its slightly stiffer front end the NTorq is eager to duck into turns. In fact, it’s so reactive to the slightest of input on the handlebar that it catches you off guard at first. But you do get used to it quite quickly. Thanks to the longish wheelbase of 1285mm the scooter feels confident even mid-corner. However, the extensions on either side of the floorboard will scrape if pushed too hard into turns. We are mighty impressed by the specially developed TVS Remora tyres, which further aid the TVS NTorq’s handling characteristics.
The more rounded profile of the tyres help with the lean angles on this scooter, which is unlike any.
For braking, the NTorq gets a 220mm petal disc up front and a 130mm drum at the rear. While the front brake doesn’t have very sharp initial bite, go hard on the lever and deceleration is progressive. Comparatively, the rear brake is sharper and tends to lock up under hard braking. However, apply the two together and the scooter stops without any fuss or tyre squeal.
On the braking front, there is a slight letdown in terms of braking distance. In our 60-0kmph test the NTorq managed 18.93 metres, which is about 0.9 metres more than its closest rival, the Honda Grazia. But that can be accounted for when you factor in the NTorq’s heavier kerb weight.
