    The TVS Ntorq 125 is the firm’s first upmarket offering in the scooter segment. It pulls out all the stops to ensure the Ntorq customer has the maximum bragging rights of them all. It gets a features list that rivals the Honda Grazia – along with the obvious, you also get a clock, average speed, top speed recorder, lap timer, and service and helmet reminders. There is no non-disc brake variant of the Ntorq at this moment; all get a 230mm front disc brake. It also gets a charging socket in the boot and a boot lamp, and an engine kill switch. The engine oil temperature is also on display, and there is an app-enabled parking locator as well as Bluetooth technology that helps it pair with Android phones. This is also the only scooter to get an engine with a three-valve head. It generates 9.3bhp and 10.5Nm and has a claimed top speed of 95kph.

    The YZF-R15 changed the 150cc segment in the Indian market the way the CBZ did when it was launched. It was an everyday motorcycle that could genuinely be used as a trackday tool. The second version of the R15 traded practicality for more focused performance, but the advent of the KTM RC200 meant that much better performance was available for the sportbike enthusiast at a similar price. The R15 V3 promises to reduce that gap significantly with technology. On the list are an engine with a few more ccs, but variable valve timing takes the maximum power output to nearly 19bhp with a nominal decrease in maximum torque while spreading that torque over a wider rev range. It also gets all-LED lamps and an all-digital LCD instrument cluster that displays a wealth of information, including when the Variable Valve Actuation switches to the different camshaft profile. The global model also gets goodies like upside down forks, but the model in India gets regular forks. The pillion seat seems to be a little lower, at least visually, which should address some of the pillion complaints. The rear side panels also have a very Ducati Panigale-style gap between them and the rear subframe, while also neatly integrating the grab handles for the pillion, which the V2 lacked. There is no ABS available even as an option, and will be available only when it becomes mandatory in 2019. On display at the 2018 Auto Expo also was a ‘Daytona’ kitted R15, suggesting that like the previous versions, more performance will be made available via a kit at a later date.

    The Apache RTR 160 has been around for well over a decade now, and the 4V is the new generation of 150cc premium commuter from the Hosur-based manufacturer. It has got input from TVS’s racing division, and the new 160 4V shows derivations that certainly make it sporty. For one, the engine has a four-valve head, which makes it the only 150cc premium commuter besides the Bajaj Pulsar NS 160 with as many valves. It also gets oil cooling. It generates 16.1 or 16.3bhp, depending upon whether it is the carburetted or FI engine. Torque stand at 14.8Nm. A rear disc brake is optional for the carburetted version but the FI gets a rear disc brake as standard. ABS isn’t even on the options list. You get a slightly narrower rear tyre if you opt for the rear drum.

    It may be the highest-selling two-wheeler in the Indian market, but Honda hasn’t stopped the evolution of the Activa. The latest set of updates that make up the 5G are more than merely cosmetic. The front apron gets chrome accents, but the LED headlamp will draw your attention first. The top-spec Deluxe variant even gets a digital display below the analogue speedometer; it now shows the fuel gauge, odometer and trip meter and a clock in the digital part of the instrument cluster. The Activa 5G also gets the new ignition key slot from the Grazia, which has the provision for the seat release.
