- Syed Asif Ali wins the overall competition
- Venkatesh Shetty stood second with the Aprilia SR 160
The rally-spec SXR version of the TVS Ntorq 125 recently showed its mettle at the 2022 edition of the TVS Ntorq NASA Monsoon Scooter Rally held in Nashik, Maharashtra. It was the weapon of choice for Syed Asif Ali who not only clenched the top spot in the class 3, group B, 210cc scooter category but was also the overall winner.
The runner-up in the same category was Karthik Naidu who was also riding the TVS Ntorq 125 SXR. However, in the overall competition, Karthik was overtaken by Venkatesh Shetty who finished second while winning the class 4, group B, 210cc scooter category. Notably, Venkatesh competed astride the Aprilia SR 160.
The Monsoon Scooter Rally, as the name suggests, is a scooter-exclusive competition in which the riders have to tackle varying terrains majorly comprising slush and puddles. Adding further excitement to this season was a moderate downpour which made the terrain trickier to ride on. The event returned this year after a COVID-19-led hiatus with the TVS Ntorq 125 as its main advertising partner. This edition of the rally witnessed one female participation from Pune-based Diksha Srivastava who had to back out due to a breakdown.
