TVS Ntorq

Auto Today - - Dashboard -

The Ntorq has been in the Auto To­day garage for some time now, and while we know that scoot­ers are Rahul’s forte, I was sur­prised that he handed over the key to me know­ing about my limited in­ter­est in two-wheel­ers. But, be­ing an au­to­mo­tive jour­nal­ist, you will al­ways find your­self do­ing things that you’ve never done be­fore, so I was game to try this lit­tle scooter. Now, I haven’t been able to put in some se­ri­ous kilo­me­tres, so I will write down my first im­pres­sion from the limited time that I’ve spent with it. Start­ing with the look of the scooter, the matte yel­low colour re­ally stands out and will def­i­nitely give you lots of eye-balls on road. While I don’t pre­fer yel­low my­self, it works re­ally well with the Ntorq and adds to its over­all look. The lines are bold and and makes up for a good-look­ing scooter. The switches are placed well within reach, but the mir­rors don’t match up to the over­all de­sign. The seat­ing is good enough for one, but you will ask for more space once the rear seat gets oc­cu­pied. The next thumbs up is for the ever-en­er­getic en­gine that just loves to scream when you rev. You don’t see a 125cc scooter with such a loud mouth, but this has worked in favour of the com­pany. I also loved the in­stru­ment panel and the fact that it con­nects to Blue­tooth is just im­pres­sive. Gone are the days when you have to con­stantly check the phone while rid­ing, as the SmartXon­nect app dis­plays nav­i­ga­tion, caller ID, last parked lo­ca­tion and also your daily ride stats. But I’ve had dif­fi­culty con­nect­ing to it the last cou­ple of times. I’m not sure the rea­son be­hind it, but I will def­i­nitely look into. That’s all from my ini­tial im­pres­sion of the Ntroq and I’ll put in some kilo­me­tres to it in my next re­port. Do fol­low our long term re­ports in the com­ing is­sues.
