TVS Ntorq Race XP Edition Review You can watch the review video of it here below
It is one of the most stylish scooters in its segment. Look vice it competes with the Yamaha Ray ZR and the recently launched Suzuki Avenis 125. Up front, you get the iconic Ntorq headlight. LED DRL’s are given on the side. Its visibility is very good. You will know its light even in good light. 12-inch red alloy wheels have been given in its front and rear. You will find graphics everywhere throughout the scooter. The theme of the scooter is based on Red Black and Silver colours. Hazard lights are available in it. Talking about the rear section, its tail light is quite appealing.
One thing that you have to keep in mind is that you do not find metal anywhere in its front and rear. That is, the entire body of the scooter is plastic, so this may be an issue for you. However, the quality of the plastic is much better. When you drive it you will not hear any sound of any kind. There are a couple places where little shows up. However, this thing will not matter much.
Apart from this, one more thing you have to keep in mind that Race XP Edition comes in only one color. That is, if you do not like this theme, then you do not get any other option in it.
After the look, if we talk about its instrument panel, then you get a fully digital console in it, in which you get real time information of Time, Fuel, Trip. In this you get trip information. Its F trip tells you how much this scooter can run in reserve. You can connect this scooter to your smartphone through the TVS Connect app. After this, you will start getting information about navigation along with phone, message on its screen. In this, you can also access many features through voice commands.
fuel filler cap
In this, you get the fuel filler cap at the back. Whereas, this fuel filler is available at the front in TVS Jupiter 125. In such a situation, in Jupiter 125, you get the option of opening the fuel cap at the front, so that you do not have to get up from the seat to refill the petrol in it. But in this you have to get up from the seat. Now in such a situation, if there was more option in this also, then it would have been fun. It gets a fuel tank of 5.8 liters.
Now let’s talk about the storage, it has a boot space of 22 liters, which is decent space for a sports scooter. But if you will not be able to keep a big half or full face helmet in this, then it will be a problem with you. In this you get a boot light, so it will prove to be a good feature at night or in low light. It has a USB port in the under seat, so that you can charge your smartphone while driving. But its USB port is not practical, because if you keep your phone in the trunk, you will not hear the phone’s notification or ring tone. However, if you connect it to the app, the notification will show on the screen, but it is not that practical. Whereas, in TVS Jupiter 125 or Suzuki Avnis, you get the charging port at the front. Next you get two hooks, but other than that you don’t get any glove boxes.
Now let’s move on to the USP of this scooter i.e. performance, in this you get a 124.8 cc single cylinder, 4-stroke 3 valve fuel injected engine. Talking about performance, this is the biggest difference you get to see. In this you get two riding modes like Street and Race.
In Street mode, you get 9 PS of maximum power at 7000 rpm and 10 Nm of peak torque at 5500 rpm. But when you drive on its race mode then you will know the real difference. In race mode, it gets a maximum power of 10.2 PS at 7000 rpm and 10.8 Nm of peak torque at 5500 rpm.
However, you will notice this difference at speeds above 60 kmph. If you understand in simple language, then the speed remains tied in street mode, but the mileage is more. Whereas, both power and torque increase in race mode. The top speed of the scooter is available on this mode.
Now let’s talk about how this scooter is in running. So the confidence you will get when you run Race XP Edition will be amazing. The XP Edition weighs in at 116 kg, which is 2 kg lighter than the other variants. It is the fastest scooter in this segment. We have driven it at a speed of 94 Kmph and it will go even further. Its wheelbase is 1285 mm and ground clearance is 155 mm. Telescopic suspension has been given in its front, which is a bit strict. This is the reason that when you go to a pit or speed breaker at a slightly higher speed, you will feel a slight jolt. Front suspension could have been a bit softer. At the same time, hydraulic suspension with coil spring has been given in the rear, which works well.
Tires have been given from 100/80 in the front and 100/80 section in the rear, which gives great grip. Amazing balance is available in this scooter on the turn. Its exhaust sound will give you a different level of confidence. This scooter delivers amazing performance in the city as well as on the highway, which makes it a very useful scooter in its segment. Talking about the riding experience, it is a value for money sports scooter.
Talking about braking features, a 220 mm disc brake has been given at the front. At the same time, 130 mm drum brake has been given in the rear. For safety, SBT feature has been given in it. Its brakes are quite decent. The scooter quickly comes under control when the brakes are applied.
In terms of mileage, you get a mileage of 50 to 55 kmpl, which is a decent figure for a scooter that comes with this performance.
TVS Ntorq Comes in four variants in the Indian market. The Delhi ex-showroom price of its Race XP Race Edition is 87,750. That is, it is the most expensive of the four variants. How Race XP Race Edition compares to the recently launched Suzuki Avenis.
