Suzuki Avenis vs TVS NTorq 125: Specs Compared


Here’s how Suzuki’s new youthful scooter fares against the current go-to 125cc scooter for youngsters

Instead of an EV (like everyone expected), Suzuki has taken the wraps off the Avenis, a youthful 125cc scooter exclusively for our market, targeted at young bloods rather than office-goers.

However, this space is dominated by the home-grown TVS NTorq 125, offering unmatched performance and features. So which one should you pick between these two? Well, here’s a spec sheet-based spec comparo to help you deduce exactly that:

Engine

Specifications

Suzuki Avenis

TVS NTorq 125

Engine

124.7cc, single-cylinder

124.79cc, single-cylinder

Power

8.7PS @ 6750rpm

9.4PS@7500rpm

Torque

10Nm @5500rpm

10.5Nm@5500rpm

Gearbox

CVT

CVT


There’s no beating the TVS NTorq 125 in terms of outright performance, as it makes 0.7PS and 0.5Nm more than the Suzuki Avenis. But with the Avenis’ peak power coming in 750rpm earlier, it should theoretically be equally zippy in the city. Moreover, this engine is borrowed from the Suzuki Access and Burgman Street, which are a joy to ride. Rest, we’ll let our performance tests pick the bones out for this one.

For people who prioritise performance over anything, the NTorq also comes in a Race XP variant, which is the most powerful 125cc scooter and even packs ride modes.

Front tyre

Rear tyre

110/80-12

Both scooters are closely matched here. They share similar underpinnings comprising a telescopic fork, monoshock, a front disc, and a rear drum brake. However, the TVS NTorq 125 features wider tyres and a bigger 12-inch rear wheel, which should ideally make it more stable at both higher speeds and in the corners. 

For city stints and tight spaces, though, the Suzuki Avenis would be our pick as its slimmer tyres should offer swift maneuverability.

Again, very identical specs for the two scooters. While the Avenis has a massive 12kg weight advantage, shorter wheelbase and extra ground clearance, the NTorq has a lower seat height and a bigger fuel tank. 

Between the two, we’d pick the Avenis here, solely because of its monumental weight advantage which should make it peppy and a lot easier to throw around than the NTorq.

2021 TVS NTorq 125 Race XP Road Test Review

The TVS NTorq 125’s list of features has been unbeatable in the 125cc scooter space. And we’re happy to announce the Suzuki Avenis is right up there with it. Both scooters pack a whole lot of features like LED lights, an LCD instrument cluster, Bluetooth connectivity, and even turn-by-turn navigation.

The Avenis comes out on top from a practical standpoint, though, thanks to its extra storage cubbies, a better positioned, backlit USB charging port, and an all-LED headlight, which isn’t offered on the base variant of the NTorq 125.  

Meanwhile, the TVS NTorq 125’s LCD is bigger and packs segment-first bits like a lap timer, a reserve trip meter, and multiple display modes, giving it an edge over the Avenis. 

Price & Verdict

Suzuki Avenis

TVS NTorq 125 

Rs 86,700

Rs 77,725  (Disc brake variant)

This is where the Suzuki Avenis loses it all. At Rs 86,700, it costs Rs 8,975 more than the NTorq 125’s disc brake variant. Not only this, the Avenis even costs Rs 1,675 more than the top-spec NTorq 125 Race XP version, which is currently the most powerful 125cc scooter. 

So to conclude, the Suzuki Avenis almost stands toe-to-toe with the class-leading TVS NTorq 125 in all aspects, other than price, which could be a deal-breaker for many, considering this is targeted towards the youth who want more for less.
