It’s been a year since we first added the TVS NTorq in our long-term fleet, and all we can say that it’s been living up to our expectations. Not only that, it actually sometimes makes us question our worth as motorcycle critics, because so far – and I am being brutally honest here – we haven’t been able to find a single flaw that can be a potential deal breaker about this scooter.
Coming back to its performance this month, the NTorq continues to be my choice for running errands, in addition to being the fastest means of commute to my office. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I can’t stress enough that its performance and handling are its main highlights. In terms of practicality and convenience, there’s nothing that comes close to this thing. To put it differently, I won’t trade it for any other two-wheeler. The build quality is impressive and not a single panel rattles even after a year of rough use. The paint around the tail-section has lost a bit of its sheen – it’s has become somewhat pale greenish. Apart from this, though, the NTorq’s flawless run continues.
