TVS NTorq scooter launched in India at INR 58,750 (Ex-showroom, Delhi); gets first-in-segment features like navigation assist, last park location assist and more.
Just one day left for the Auto Expo 2018 and TVS has stunned the two-wheeler industry by launching its first ever 125cc TVS NTorq scooter in India. The NTorq scooter is priced at Rs. 58,750 (ex-showroom, Delhi) and comes with a plethora of features. It is based on the Graphite platform which was earlier revealed at the Auto Expo 2016. The Graphite was too futuristic, but the NTorq being a production model looks more practical and carries sporty styling that will surely appeal the youth.
Features and Design
The NTorq is a contemporary introduction by the two-wheeler maker and it gets some of the first-in-class features such as SmartXonnect that enables you to connect your phone to the vehicle through bluetooth connectivity. Moreover, the instrument cluster of the scooter is fully digital and comes with a package of 55 exciting features like lap timer, top speed recorder, navigation assist, last park location assist, engine oil temperature, service reminder etc.
The design of the scooter is incomparable; new enough to attract the onlookers. Overall, you will find the scooter profile edgy and sporty, however, the positioning of the headlamp right above the mudguard is something we have already seen in Honda Dio.
