TVS Motor Company has announced that sales for its Ntorq 125 scooter have crossed the 1 lakh mark. The Ntorq 125 is TVS’ first 125cc scooter and it has achieved this sales landmark in less than seven months of the product going on sale. The Hosur-based company also introduced a new colour for its 125cc scooter – Metallic Red – joining the existing Metallic Blue and Metallic Grey colour schemes. The 125cc scooter has been well-received by customers since it made its debut and has also managed to outsell the Honda Grazia regularly. Although the Suzuki Access 125 still remains the leader in the 125cc segment.
One of the main reasons for the popularity of the scooter (especially among youngsters) is TVS’ exclusive technology platform, SmartXonnect. The Ntorq 125 is the first scooter across all segments to offer Bluetooth connectivity. Its fully digital instrument panel also offers navigation assist, caller ID, an app-based parking-location assist, as well as three display modes – Street, Sport and Ride Stats. It’s powered by a 124.8cc, single-cylinder motor with a 3-valve head, producing 9.5hp and 10.5Nm of torque. It’s the most powerful production scooter from TVS with a claimed top speed of 95kph. The 125cc scooter carries a price tag of Rs 59,687 (ex-showroom, Delhi).
Commenting on the sales milestone, Aniruddha Haldar, Vice President (Marketing) – Commuter Motorcycles, Scooters & Corporate Brand, TVS Motor Company, said, “TVS Ntorq 125, our first 125cc scooter, is also India's first Bluetooth-connected scooter. The GenZ, our intended audience, have responded with love to this new offering. They not only took the TVS Ntorq 125 to their homes but gave it a pride of place across their social platforms. This kind of brand love early on is remarkable and redoubles our enthusiasm to live up to the faith of our consumers."
