Sporty, Con­nected, and Prac­ti­cal

TVS Ntorq 125

Bike India - - OUR BIKES - — San­jay Raikar

We have a new stu­dent in class, dili­gently dropped off by TVS Mo­tor Com­pany: the Ntorq 125. Over the com­ing months, we will be putting this pupil through a va­ri­ety of real-life tests and see how it fares as the odome­ter ticks away. Al­though the Ntorq is only a few weeks old in our garage, most of us have al­ready taken a lik­ing to the yel­low scooter. Be­sides, as some­one who is still get­ting used to Pune, I find the nav­i­ga­tion fea­ture quite use­ful.

TVS claim that the scooter has de­rived some style el­e­ments from stealth air­craft and it is fairly ev­i­dent from a few an­gles; giv­ing the scooter a sporty char­ac­ter. That be­ing said, the funky de­sign may not ap­peal to rid­ers of all age-groups.

The 125-cc en­gine of this scooter churns out a healthy amount of torque that man­i­fests bril­liantly in the mid-range; a def­i­nite boon for city rid­ing. Al­though there are no prob­lems at the mo­ment, we are ap­pre­hen­sive of how the fit­ting of the nu­mer­ous plas­tic bits will en­dure in the long run. Con­sid­er­ing mon­soon is al­ready upon us, this should get in­ter­est­ing.
