New technology and features is always an enticing factor, making nearly everything seem futuristic and more desirable-especially two-wheelers. TVS seems to have understood that quite well. Its latest offering is the Ntorq 125 XT, which we believe, stands for ‘Xtra Technology’. Like always, the scooter has been equipped with some first-in-class technology.
So without squandering any more time, let us tell you everything that is new on the TVS Ntorq 125 XT.
New instrument cluster
The biggest change the XT gets is the spanking new instrumentation. Gone is the black on grey LCD that has made way for a new hybrid setup that includes an LCD as well as a colour TFT. Well, that’s not all. While the console was already Bluetooth enabled, it now offers some really interesting info once connected to a smartphone.
The TFT screen can now display weather, social, news and other updates. You could even track live cricket scores while at a traffic light. What would interest you even more is that the Ntorq 125 XT can also notify on social media alerts and even track your food delivery status!
Users can also setup their own profile image and the image of incoming callers that would be visible on the TFT. But apart from that, the Ntorq 125 XT also has a voice command feature that can be activated by long pressing a dedicated switch on the right side. It accepts commands for changing the ride modes, adjusting screen brightness and even navigation. That’s not all. With audio feedback, the Ntorq XT can also ‘talk’ to the rider informing about low fuel warnings, low phone battery, fuel consumption etc.
Lastly, to bring about some visual change, TVS has adorned the XT variant with a new colour scheme called Neon Green. As it suggest, the scooter comes in a combination of neon green and dark blue with some snazzy graphics too. The rest of the scooter, in terms of styling remains the same as before
What remains the same?
That brings us to what remains the same. Well, the TVS Ntorq 125 XT continues to come powered by a 124cc, air-cooled, three-valve engine that churns out 10.05bhp and 10.8Nm. Even its suspension and braking hardware remain unchanged and it rides on 12-inch wheels at both ends with chunky tyres.
So, TVS has priced the Ntorq 125 XT is priced at Rs 1.03 lakh, ex-showroom. That puts it at a premium of Rs 13,000 over the XP variant which costs Rs 89,000. That said, the XT also costs much more than its rivals- the Suzuki Avenis and Yamaha Ray ZR. But with the new features and tech, it is a much more attractive proposition, especially if you are looking for a scooter that delivers on performance as well.
