After we first rode the NTorq this yr, we have been amazed by the good bundle this little scooter had. The general construct high quality, sporty design, trip and dealing with, quick and clean engine, brakes, unbelievable options, and naturally, its aggressive value level make the NTorq an ideal bundle.
TVS took its personal candy time to launch the 125cc scooter however after they determined to affix the get together, they made certain to launch solely the most effective. And that is precisely what the NTorq is – the most effective 125cc scooter you possibly can personal immediately.
The Ntorq’s design is not that awkward, nevertheless it seems fairly trendy. It will get a pointed entrance apron with TVS Ntorq 125 decals, handlebar-mounted flip indicators, and an total down-facing look. The chunky exhaust, sharp-raked tail-section and 12-inch diamond reduce alloys additionally look sporty. Nevertheless, what actually made a giant impression on us is its high quality and fit-and-finish. The eye to element is de facto spectacular, and the little issues just like the matte paint end, TVS racing decals, refined carbon-fiber lookalike panels and red-stitching on the seat stack up towards its rivals.
NTorq additionally comes with some segment-first options. It’s India’s first related scooter because it comes with Bluetooth connectivity or SmartXonnect characteristic.

And, it reaches 60 km/h fairly simply. Past that, nevertheless, progress is gradual. On the observe, we even managed to succeed in a high pace of 95 km/h, and but the engine remained quiet and with none vibrations. Nevertheless, the primary attraction of the NTorq is its trip and dealing with stability. It comes with telescopic entrance forks and a gas-filled, hydraulic-type, coil-spring shock on the rear. And, from what we will inform, the suspension has been crafted to perfection!
Total, NTorq undoubtedly deserves the ‘Better of 2018’ honor. It has earned it, and it additionally signifies that so long as we have now a long-term NTorq in our fleet, we’ll proceed to struggle over the keys.
