Breaking: TVS NTorq 125 Gets New Variant With A Bunch Of Updated Features

The scooter’s new XT variant commands a Rs 13K premium over the RaceXP variant

TVS has launched a new XT variant for its sporty 125cc scooter offering, the TVS NTorq 125. The XT variant gets more race-oriented and comes with connectivity features along with a new colour scheme. Moreover, the new scooters have already started arriving at the dealerships.

What’s The Price? Who Are Its Rivals?

The TVS NTorq 125 XT variant is priced at Rs 1,02,823 (ex-showroom Delhi). It commands a premium of Rs 13,612 over the RaceXP variant which is priced at Rs 89,211.

Rivalling the NTorq 125 are other 125cc sporty scooter offerings in India like the Suzuki Avenis (Rs 86,500), Honda Grazia 125 (Rs 80,175 ) and Aprilia SR 125 (Rs 1,00,186), all prices ex-showroom Delhi.

How Many Variants Are There?

With the addition of the XT variant, the TVS NTorq 125 comes in a total of five variants: Base model (available in front disc or drum), Race Edition, SuperSquad Edition, Race XP and the new, more feature-packed, XT grade.

What’s New?

While the scooter borrows plentiful equipment from the other variants, the XT flaunts a new industry-first hybrid split TFT and LCD digital instrument cluster with the new TVS SmartXonnect, which features a dedicated screen for the Race Mode. It packs start-stop tech with silent starter, lap timer, top speed indicator, and a 0-60kmph timer.

It also gets a SmartXtalk voice assistant that can be used to control modes, screen brightness, music control and navigation. It also gets a SmartXtrack feature that gives you live notifications on weather, news, cricket and social updates while at a standstill.

The NTorq 125 XT variant gets a vibrant new dual tone Neon Green paint scheme that makes it even more sporty and attractive. Even the graphics on the scooter are updated albeit only mildly. It now rolls on lighter, sportier, new black alloys. 

What’s Unchanged?

In terms of styling, the XT variant retains the same overall design as the other variants and features an LED headlight with LED DRLs, and a sharp and sporty body design.

Powering the NTorq 125 XT is the same 124.8cc, 3 Valve, Single Cylinder, air-cooled engine. It churns out the same 9.3PS and 10.5Nm as the Race Edition variant, but less than the RaceXP’s 10.2PS and 10.8Nm.

Other features include Bluetooth connectivity, turn-by-turn navigation, USB charging socket, underseat LED light and two display modes. 

What Should Have Been Changed?

With such a significant premium of Rs 13,612 over the Race XP variant, TVS should've used the Race XP’s powertrain and not the regular variant’s unit. This would’ve helped justify the premium, atleast to a certain extent.


The TVS NTorq 125 is one of the best 125cc sporty scooter offerings in the market with top-of-the-line features and performance. With the new XT variant, this package gets even more attractive for riders looking for performance and a feature-packed 125cc sporty scooter. However, a premium of Rs 13,612, pushes the scooter over Rs 1 lakh territory, making it way too expensive for what, at the end of the day, is still a 125cc scooter.

Moreover, if you compare the XT variant’s price with the Race Edition, on which it is based, then the Rs 17,662 premium seems to be way too much for a bunch of geeky features that any smartphone can do.
