The NTorq saw little to no action in the last month, since I was out travelling most of the time. This meant it was parked in the garage for around two weeks. After I came back, though, it was the first thing that I wanted to ride, given how easy, comfortable and fun this thing is. However, I was a little surprised to find the scooter struggling to start in the beginning. Sure, it was parked for a long period, but I wasn’t expecting to face starting troubles in such a short duration. Anyway, after trying to crank the engine for about 10-15 minutes, it finally came to life and I was on the move.
I can’t stress on it anymore, but an automatic scooter is a godsend in the choked streets of Delhi. And then when you have something like the NTorq, which clubs the fun factor of a motorcycle with the practicality of a scooter, the daily commute becomes kind of enjoyable. You don’t care about the weather, road conditions or erratic drivers/riders on the road, simply because you hardly get stuck in traffic. As for the problems, the front brake now has a sticky feel whenever I grab it hard. They also squeak at times. I think it’s because of some dust/debris in the pads. A quick pressure wash should help eliminate this issue. As for the rest of the things, the scooter runs flawlessly.
