TVS NTorq 125

Can the TVS NTorq 125 be the per­fect al­ter­na­tive to Aprilia SR 150?

Evo India - - EVO FLEET -

IHAD BEEN LONG CON­TEM­PLAT­ING a re­place­ment to my five-year old Yamaha Ray-Z. The Aprilia SR 150 was on top of my shop­ping list. How­ever, one fine af­ter­noon the Ed handed me the keys to the TVS NTorq 125 and now I feel that this is just the scooter I al­ways needed!

The NTorq is quick and that is some­thing very im­por­tant for me, as I love zip­ping through traf­fic. It might not win a traf­fic light drag race but has enough grunt to keep me grin­ning. And while I am at it, the ex­haust note con­fuses peo­ple with its mo­tor­cy­cle­like sound­track . Be­ing new to Pune city,

I'm not well ac­quainted with the roads, es­pe­cially the Peth ar­eas and this is where the SmartXon­nect helps me save time. In fact, I have started car­ry­ing my old An­droid phone in ad­di­tion to my iPhone (un­for­tu­nately, the sys­tem doesn't sup­port iOS) to utilise the nav­i­ga­tion fea­ture. And fi­nally, the large un­der­seat stor­age and foot­board takes care of my cam­era equip­ment. What more can I ask for?

I've clocked enough kilo­me­tres on the odo al­ready and the NTorq is due for ser­vice. I hope TVS re­turns it soon though as I've al­ready fallen for it. Who needs the SR? ⌧
