Till now, the Ntorq has ex­ceeded most of my ex­pec­ta­tions as an all-round scooter. Be it the han­dling at tight cor­ners or even hard brak­ing in an emer­gency cour­tesy Delhi traf­fic, the yel­low scoot has not dis­ap­pointed me in the 500 odd kilo­me­tres that I’ve man­aged to clock till now. How­ever, one grouse that I have is the seat is good enough only for the rider, and if you want to bring a pil­lion along, then be ready for an un­com­fort­able ride. There is no respite from the con­stant graz­ing of knees while mak­ing a tight turn, and ride qual­ity gets harsh on short trips let alone long trips. The floor­board could’ve been slightly wider, in case you wish to keep a back­pack or any­thing for that mat­ter, as there is very min­i­mal space for the feet. But then again, sporty scoot­ers tend to have nar­row floor­boards for a more stream­lined shape. In my last re­port, I faced con­nec­tiv­ity is­sue with the SmartCon­nect app, but that’s re­solved af­ter re-in­stalling it. The func­tion­ing is seam­less and I also tried the nav­i­ga­tion as­sist once for my trip to the visa of­fice from Noida to Delhi, and the in­struc­tions on the screen were de­tailed.

Cold starts has never been a strong point for the Ntorq and it takes a while for the au­to­choke to kick in.
