TVS Ntorq 125 XT launched, cost Rs 1.03 lakh
TVS has launched a new variant of its sporty 125cc Ntorq scooter in India, and it's called the Ntorq 125 XT. Priced at Rs 1.03 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) the Ntorq XT variant costs almost Rs 13,000 more than the Race XP variant. The introduction of the XT variant sees the TVS NTorq 125 range comprise a total of five variants: the Base model (that's available with front disc or drum brake), the Race Edition, the SuperSquad Edition, the Race XP and of course the new, XT.
So what's new?
The XT features a split TFT and LCD digital instrument cluster that's a first for this segment. With scooter gets TVS SmartXonnect, a refreshed UI and there's even a dedicated screen for the Race Mode. It packs start-stop tech, a lap timer and a 0-60kmph sprint timer.
The party piece with this scooter will have to be the SmartXtalk voice assistant that can be used to control modes, screen brightness, music control and even the navigation. The XT also gets a feature called SmartXtrack which gives you live notifications and updates on weather, news, cricket and social media.
TVS have introduced a new Neon Green paint scheme for the NTorq 125 XT and I really looks riveting in the pictures and you can't miss the on lighter, sportier, new black alloy wheels too.
What's stays the same?
On the design front, the XT variant retains the same overall cues as the other variants. The scooter features an LED headlight with LED DRLs, and a sporty body panels. Other features include Bluetooth connectivity, turn-by-turn navigation, a USB charging socket, an under-seat LED light and two display modes.
The NTorq 125 XT is powered by the same 124.8cc, 3 Valve, single-cyl, air-cooled engine that continues to produce 9.3PS and 10.5Nm. The power and torque figures are the same as with the other variants of the Ntorq scooter, besides the Race XP model, because 10.2PS and 10.8Nm is what makes that particular model so special.
So, is the XT it worth it?
The TVS Ntorq is a brilliant option for those looking out for a good mix of features and performance, but 'over one lakh for a 125cc scooter', forget saying that out loud, even reading it doesn't feel right. If the scooter came with the same tune as the Race XP, I'd like to think that the Rs 13,000 bump up in price would have been more justified, but the XT is tuned like the Race edition and is about Rs 17,000 more costly than that version of the scooter. So it comes down to a matter of preference. I'd choose the more powerful Race XP over the more 'connected' XT.
