If you are planning to buy a new 125 cc scooter and want something sporty and feature-rich, then the TVS NTorq 125 is likely to be on your list. A very popular 125 cc scooter, the NTorq has been loved for its aggressive design and powerful engine, although the highlight has to be the slew of modern features that set the Ntorq apart from its rivals. But with increasing competition in the 125 cc scooter segment, TVS is planning to make the NTorq 125 more tech-loaded.
The Indian two-wheeler maker is planning to bring a new variant to the NTorq range which will set a “benchmark” in technology, or so reads TVS’ teaser for this upcoming scooter. The teaser reveals very little about the upcoming product but does focus on the ‘XT’ suffix for the variant. In case you forgot, TVS NTorq 125 has a Race XP variant in the line-up. The XT variant may replace XP as the top-end trim in TVS NTorq’s lineup.
TVS Ntorq comes with an LCD instrument cluster but this display hasn’t been updated in a while. The upcoming Ntorq model may feature a new instrument cluster with better display and more information. The existing model, for reference, has provisions such as a built-in lap timer,
SmartXconnect suite that allows the rider to pair their smartphone via Bluetooth for functionalities like missed calls alerts, messages, turn-by-turn navigation, last parked location assist, ride statistics, and voice assist that comprehends 15 voice commands. Clearly, the scooter is already quite feature-rich. So, it will be interesting to see how TVS will upgrade the Ntorq 125 in terms of the onboard gadgetry.
One can think of provisions such as a TFT instrument cluster, smartphone-based navigation, built-in music player, and whatnot. However, these features will make Ntorq 125 significantly expensive.One thing we know will remain unchanged is the powerplant. The upcoming TVS NTorq 125 XT (if that is what is called) will have the 124.8 cc air-cooled engine available in two states of tune — 9 bhp with 10.5 Nm and 10 bhp with 11 Nm. Even the hardware is most likely to remain unchanged but the company may introduce some new colour options.
