TVS Motor Company launched the Ntorq 125 Race Edition recently. Introducing the model ahead of the high demand festive season aims to further boost the sales. In this post, we compare the TVS NTorq 125 Race Edition with the standard Ntorq 125 to list the visual, feature and monetary differences between the two models.
Styling and features
The TVS Ntorq 125 Race Edition comes with visual upgrades in the form of new paint and graphics. The three-tone combination of matte black, metallic black and metallic red colours are further enhanced by the vibrant chequered flag graphics and the ‘Race Edition’ emblem. The new theme looks very appealing and sporty, and it should attract young buyers.
The standard Ntorq 125, on the other hand, is available in seven colour options – Matte Yellow, Matte White, Matte Red, Matte Silver, Metallic Blue, Metallic Grey and Metallic Red. The Matte Silver paint commemorates the scooter’s achievement of becoming the most awarded scooter in India in the last financial year (FY2018-19).
Apart from the styling revision, the Ntorq 125 Race Edition also comes with a new feature – a full LED headlight. The Signature LED DRL resembles the “T” pattern that is visible in the taillight. In comparison, the standard Ntorq 125 uses a halogen headlamp with LED DRL at the bottom.
The Bluetooth-enabled instrument console is available as standard on both models. Along with the 'TVS NTORQ' SmartXonnect App, the instrument console offers functions such as Navigation Assist, Last Parked Location Assist, Phone Battery Strength, Phone Signal Strength, Incoming Call Alert, Missed Call Alert and Auto Reply SMS. The smartphone app also records the Ride Stats that can be shared on social networking websites.
Engine and Other Hardware Specifications
The TVS Ntorq 125 Race Edition is a new variant of the existing range that aims to boost the sales during the festive season. Thus, the scooter uses a 124.79 cc carburettor-equipped air-cooled 3-valve, OHC, BS-IV compliant engine that produces 10.5 Nm of peak torque at 5,500 rpm and 9.4 PS of max power at 7,500 rpm.
Braking and suspension department on the Race Edition (available in disc brake variant only) is identical to the standard Ntorq 125. Thus, stopping power comes from a disc brake at the front and a drum unit at the back. Shock absorption duties are handled by telescopic front forks and a single spring at the back.
The addition of the special paint theme and the full-LED headlight on the Race Edition comes at a premium of INR 3,095 over the standard model. The TVS Ntorq 125 Race Edition retails at INR 62,995* versus INR 59,900* tag on the standard model.
