At a starting price of Rs 65,975, the BS-VI compliant TVS Ntorq with the drum brakes now demands Rs 6,513 more than before. Power and torque figures remain unchanged from the older version
With just a fortnight to go before the new emission norms come into effect, automotive news is likely to be flooded with new launches and BS-VI updates. TVS for instance, has already updated its Apache range and the Jupiter Classic to meet the upcoming emission norms, and now they have launched the BS-VI Ntorq. The Ntorq now demands Rs 65,975 for the base drum brake variant, which makes it more than Rs 6,500 more than before. The disc brake trim and the Race Edition are priced at Rs 69,975 and Rs 72,455 respectively. All prices ex-showroom Delhi.
The TVS Ntorq continues to displace 124.8cc from a single-cylinder air-cooled motor but like most other two-wheelers out there, this one too is now fuel injected. Power figures remains unchanged at 9.1bhp and max torque is still 10.5Nm. The weight of the scooter has risen by 1.9kg thanks to a larger fuel tank and the changes made to the engine. Suspension duties are performed by telescopic forks at the front and coil spring hydraulic dampers at the rear.
In terms of features there is no change to the Ntorq. Even this BS-VI iteration gets a fully digital instrumentation with Bluetooth connectivity, navigation, last parked location assist and more. The TVS Ntorq compete against the likes of the Honda Activa 125 and the Suzuki Access. Even with the increase in price, the Ntorq is noticeable cheaper than its competition. The drum brake version of the Access is priced at Rs 67,100 while the Activa 125 demands Rs 67,490. Disc brake trims of both these scooters are priced at Rs 70,000 and Rs 74,490 respectively.
