TVS Ntorq drum brake variant is priced comparatively lower than the disc brake variant which makes the popular scooter even more accessible to the buyers
TVS Motors launched the drum brake variant of the Ntorq scooter recently in India. The drum brake variant is priced at 58,252 (ex-showroom) whereas the disc brake version is priced at Rs 59,900 (ex-showroom). The recently introduced drum brake variant depends on 130 mm drum brakes at both the front and rear to bring the scooter to a halt.
The disc brake variant, on the other hand, is priced at a premium of Rs 1,648 and it uses a 220 mm disc towards the front and 130 mm drum brake setup at the rear. The addition of the drum brake variant means that the Ntorq prices start comparatively lower which makes the scooter even more accessible to the buyers.
As you can clearly watch in this video besides the different braking setup, nothing much has changed on the scooter. The TVS Ntorq takes its styling inspiration from a stealth aircraft. The front apron with integrated headlamp, diamond cut alloy wheels, sporty exhaust muffler, split grab rail and T-shaped LED taillamp all help in adding a sporty appearance to the scooter.
The Ntorq’s fully digital instrument cluster features first in class SmartXonnect Connected Technology. Apart from showing some standard information like Speed, odometer, power/eco mode the instrument cluster also has a 0-60 km/h acceleration timer as well.
Furthermore, with the help of NTORQ’ SmartXonnect App, the rider can connect their Smartphone to the scooter via Bluetooth. Once the phone is connected the rider can use features like navigation assist, last parked location assist, Incoming call and missed Call alert, auto-reply SMS, Phone Signal and battery Strength, ride status, etc.
That said, the TVS Ntorq is powered by a 124.79cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled, 3-valve, OHC engine. This unit delivers around 9.4 PS of peak power at 7,500 rpm and 10.5Nm of peak torque at 5,500 rpm. The sporty scooter has a top speed of 95 km/h mark. To meet the new Government norms the scooter now also features a combined braking system as well. The TVS Ntorq rivals directly against the Honda Grazia and the Aprilia SR 125 in India.
