Ntorq price has increased by nearly Rs 1000. But, it still is, competitive when compared with Honda!
We really applaud TVS for being ‘the’ manufacturer to introduce production variants of most of the concept two-wheelers they have showcased till date. After the Apache RR 310 (which was Akula in its concept days), TVS introduced the production version of Graphite scooter which they showcased back in 2014. However, it has been named as Ntorq based on the big 210 cc scooter concept of the 2016 Auto Expo (more details here).
And within a matter of six months, the 125cc sports scooter has reached a sales milestone of 1 Lakh units ie an average of nearly 17,000 units every month! TVS also informs that they have received 22 lakh visits on its website and high enquiries in dealerships as well as its social channels.
And to bring it some fresh air, the company has introduced a new Metallic red colour just before the festive season.
Ntorq 125 produces 9.4 PS of peak power at 7500 rpm and 10.5 Nm of max torque at 5500 rpm from its air cooled 124.79 cc 3 valve engine. In comparison rival Honda Grazia churns out 8.64 PS of max power at 6500 rpm and 10.54 Nm of peak torque at 5000 rpm. So, the Ntorq triumphs the Grazia in terms of outright power available. However, it tips the scale at 116.1 kg as compared to 107 kg of Grazia.
It comes with 12 inch tubeless tyres – front is 100 x 80 and rear is fatter 110 x 80. It also gets a front 220 mm disc brake as standard for now. The instrumentation is full digital and comes with 55 features – and shows street, sport, ride stats; best lap timer and last lap timer; personalised welcome message. It can be paired with your smartphone via Bluetooth and it shows incoming call/sms alert, navigation assist, last parked location assist, phone signal & battery strength and a host of other such helpful stuff.
TVS Ntorq Price
In comparison, Grazia’s disc brake variant costs Rs 63,994 and Suzuki’s Access (disc) sets you back by Rs 58,350. So, TVS has priced it competitively and much better than Honda!
TVS is promoting it as a sports scooter and hence on offer are flashy colours. It was initially introduced only in Matte colours – Matte Yellow, Matte White, Matte Green and Matte Red, Few months back TVS added Metallic Grey and Metallic Blue to the palette and the latest Metallic Red takes the tally to a seven.
There is a lot of focus on performance – TVS claims a 0-60 kmph dash in 9 seconds, top speed of 95 kmph and it also has a lap timer along with a top speed recorder in the cluster. It also gets segment first engine kill switch, USB charger, 22 liter underseat storage and external fuel filling.
We tested the sporty scoot recently and it, indeed, is very impressive. TVS has signalled that it will be a big force to reckon with and seriously, it looks a much more tempting deal than Honda’s 125 cc portfolio!
