By Aditya Jadhav | on July 13, 2021

TVS Ntorq’s new Race XP edition packs the most power output and features. While it has no direct competition, we pitch the new racier scooter alongside an “off-road” capable one.

TVS Motor Company recently launched a sportier variant of the Ntorq 125. The new variant has been dubbed the Ntorq 125 Race XP. The new scooter packs in a few more features over the standard one and gets a slight bump in power.

The standard model of the TVS Ntorq125 rivals the Aprilia SR 125, Suzuki Burgman Street 125, Yamaha Fascino 125, and the Vespa SXL 125. The racier version of the Ntorq 125 – the Race XP – is more in line with Aprilia’s Storm 125. The Storm 125 gets chunky and knobby tires over the standard SR 125 making it more suitable for beaten roads.

Following is a comparison of the TVS Ntorq 125 Race XP and the Aprilia Storm 125:

Cycle parts

The Race XP edition has been tuned for on-road performance. The Storm 125, on the flip side, is more focused on the beaten roads. The chunky off-road tyres on the Storm 125 will perform better considering that there is a wider contact patch on offer on both ends. Both the scooters have telescopic front forks on offer.
