Ever since I noticed the spec sheet of the TVS NTorq, this was one scooter I wished to maintain for a very long time. It ticked all of the packing containers I’ve come to count on from a scooter and extra. It has a zippy 125cc engine, is roomy for my six foot body, with large 12-inch rims and appears enticing. On prime of that it’s loaded with options by no means seen earlier than on the scooter. It has Bluetooth connectivity with turn-by-turn navigation and an app that’s nicely detailed. Clearly TVS has thrown the kitchen sink on the Ntorq and on paper it’s simply essentially the most fascinating 125cc scooter that you may purchase within the nation.
After I first laid my eyes on the Ntorq, what struck me essentially the most, other than the glossy design, was the extent of high quality. From the wealthy plastic, to the steadiness of the panel lag, to the tactile switchgear, the Entorque felt proper on the cash. Then there is a design which may be a bit too screaming for some, however to me it is interesting and I particularly appreciated the dynamic profile and trendy rear lights. Faux afterburners impressed by fighter jets are barely up entrance on the again.
I used to be actually impressed with the baggage house beneath the seat, however the backside is not very deep and it will possibly’t swallow a full face helmet. The eye to element is clear right here, the place you get a boot mild and a USB port for charging your smartphone.
I took the scooter for a short spin and it felt zippy, comfy and the exhaust word is surprisingly sporty with a good-throated grime bike like sound. Within the coming months I will inform you if the Ntorq is pretty much as good because the spec sheet suggests.
