TVS Motor company has launched its first performance scooter, the Ntorq 125 scooter in India. The scooter is powered by a 125 cc engine and will be offered in four colours – Matte Yellow, Green, White and Red, when it goes on sale in the market in a week.
Major highlight of the scooter is the fully-digital instrument cluster that supports vehicle data and connectivity (very much like the new KTM Duke 390). It is a Bluetooth-enabled feature, TVS calls that SmartXonnect technology. It pairs with an exclusive NTORQ mobile App which the rider can download from the Google play store. The app is available only for Android devices as of now.
This app boasts 55 features including navigation assist (turn-by-turn), top speed recorder, in-built lap-timer, phone-battery strength display, last parked location assist, service reminder, trip meter and multi-ride statistic modes such as Street and Sport (Displays relevant information in the cluster based on whichever is selected). It also has an incoming call/SMS alert.
In derives styling from the TVS Graphite concept showcased as a concept at the 2014 Auto Expo inspired by stealth military aircraft’s engineering. It also gets an under bone frame with high tensile steel resulting in better stability. Smart lines, split grab-rail and a sleek headlamp are among some of the worthy features.
Other highlights of the NTORQ 125 are Batwing Styled LED DRL mounted on the apron, indicators are mounted on the handlebar, 125’ decals on side panels, T-shaped LED tail-light, faux carbon fibre finishing on the panels, double-stitched Hysteresis seat, patented EZ Ccentre stand, handlebar weights, engine kill switch (segment-first) and pass by switch.
The new Ntorq 125 is powered by a new generation CVTi-REVV 124.79cc, single-cylinder 3-valve SOHC mill with air cooling. It churns out 9.4 PS at 7,500 rpm and 10.5 Nm at 5,500 rpm. Top speed is 95 kmph. Suspension includes 30mm telescopic suspension setup at the front and gas charged damper at the rear. Brakes are 220 mm front disc and drum brakes are seen at the rear.
The Ntorq 125 will compete with the likes of the Honda Grazia, Aprilla SR 125 and the yet to be launched Suzuki Burgman Street. Looking at the first impression of the scooter, we can say that TVS may be upto something big.
