The performance upgrades have resulted in a massive peak power of over 20 bhp – more than 11 bhp when compared to the standard NTORQ 125.
Other significant features of the race-spec TVS NTORQ SXR are 12-inch knobby tyres with race-prepped hydraulic suspension, performance-tuned air intake and the exhaust as well as ignition systems are upgraded.

The fourth round of INRC (Indian National Rally Championship) is scheduled to be contested in Nashik between May 25 and 26. Triple National Championship winner Asif Ali and Shamim Khan will be riding the new race-bred machine in the Rally.
The NTORQ SXR builds on the good reception of the standard NTORQ 125, which entered the market as country’s first SmartXonnect scooter with Bluetooth-enabled technology paired to an exclusive NTORQ mobile App that can be downloaded from google play store.
