TVS sold 20,820 units of NTorq in September 2018 compared to 13,001 units of Honda Grazia, the fight will intensify with the launch of Hero Destini 125
In the recent years, the customer trend in scooter segment is changing as earlier people preferred efficient 100 cc entry level scooters but now they are giving more importance for stylish and powerful 125 cc scooters as this segment is lead by Suzuki Access 125. The fight for the second position has been intense since the launch of TVS NTorq.
The Grazia was introduced towards the end of last year while NTorq was launched in February. Even though Honda got an edge over TVS initially, the Ntorq was quick to catch up to Grazia, both scooters have crossed the one lakh sales milestone in quick time. Last month, TVS sold 20,820 units compared to 13,001 units of Grazia.
When compared to August, NTorq sales increased by almost 2000 units and Grazia went down by the same margin. Finally, the NTorq is started to emerge as the favourite among the two and the fight for the second position is going to get intense in coming months as Hero officially launched its first 125 scooters Destini yesterday in India.
TVS NTorq is powered by 124.79 cc single cylinder engine producing 9.1 bhp of power at 7,500 rpm and 10.5 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm. This engine is mated to CVT automatic gearbox. The Grazia gets its power from the same 124.9 cc engine from Activa 125 producing 8.52 bhp and 10.54 Nm. This engine is mated to a V-Matic gearbox.
The design of NTorq is sporty compared to Grazia and both scooters come with fully digital instrument cluster but the one on NTorq comes with more features as it can be connected to a smartphone via Bluetooth as it comes with navigation, parking reminder and more.
The Grazia is the first scooter in its segment to come with full LED headlamps and both scooters offer decent under seat storage capacity but the TVS edges out. The braking duties are handled by disc brakes at front and drum at the rear on both scooters, but the disc brake is slightly bigger on NTorq and the scooters come with CBS also.
