TVS launched its most powerful scooter, the TVS Ntorq 125 this month. It goes toe-to-toe with the Honda’s newest trendy-looking scooter, the Honda Grazia.
Both the TVS Ntorq 125 and the Honda Grazia have designs that appeal to a younger audience. The Ntorq is sleeker whereas the Grazia has more of a butch look. The Ntorq makes do with an apron-mounted halogen headlamp with DRL. On the other hand, the Honda Grazia features an LED headlamp, which is one of the scooter’s highlights. Let’s see how they perform against each other spec-wise.

The Honda Grazia loses out on power, and the torque is more or less the same as the Ntorq’s output. However, the Grazia weighs 9.1 kg lesser than the Ntorq, which should translate into superior efficiency, at least on paper. The claimed efficiency of the Grazia is 50 km/l; whereas the ARAI efficiency figure of the Ntorq stands at 48 kmpl.

The biggest talking point of the Ntorq is its advanced instrument cluster, which is Bluetooth and app-compatible. It boasts 55 features including navigation assist (turn-by-turn), top speed recorder, in-built lap-timer, phone-battery strength display, last parked location assist, service reminder, trip meter and multi-ride statistic modes such as Street and Sport (Displays relevant information in the cluster based on whichever is selected). It also has an incoming call/SMS alert. The Grazia, on the other hand, has a rather primitive Eco Speed Indicator, apart from the digital cluster with a tachometer.
