The lat­est 125-cc pre­mium scoot­ers ex­change blows to prove their supremacy

In our last is­sue, we had done a comparo fea­tur­ing the Yamaha rayZr, Honda Grazia and aprilia sr150 and ex­plained why the 125-cc scooter seg­ment is grow­ing so rapidly. in this is­sue, we re­it­er­ate our point, for in the last few months the seg­ment has seen an­other bunch of funky new launches to cater to the in­creas­ing de­mand. Giv­ing stiff com­pe­ti­tion to the Grazia now is tVs’ first ever 125-cc scooter, the ntorq 125, and the younger sib­ling of the aprilia sr150, sr 125. so, here we are test­ing the three back to back to get you a de­fin­i­tive win­ner.

First things first. let’s look at the over­all ap­pear­ance. Park the scoot­ers next to one an­other and the ntorq stands out with its trendy new de­sign. it sure has the most unique de­sign, it

the run­ner-up vote goes to the aprilia sr 125 for its no-non­sense sporty de­sign — es­sen­tially the same as the sr150. How­ever, a bunch of dif­fer­ent colour schemes do make the two sib­lings stand apart and we re­ally dig this new blue shade. Be­ing slim and tall, and on ac­count of its large wheels, this
