Cons of TVS NTorq

  • Performance

Though the scooter performs fairly well in the mid-range, problem starts in the lower-range. It is a performance problem in traffic, the scooter loses breathe beyond the mid-range which results in very poor top-end.

  • Weight

At 116 kgs, it is the heaviest scooter in this segment. While the weight helps in the stability in straight line, the maneuverability is quite poor in the traffic. The added weight too decreases the mileage and speed of the vehicle.

  • Under-seat storage

Though the NTorq comes with 22 litres storage space, the design is so made that even a single full-sized helmet cannot fit into it. So as per the usage of the under-seat storage, it can be said that it is on par with other scooters out there.

  • Missing LED Headlights

LEDs are great at providing maximum brightness at lower voltages as well and with the DC electric systems coming in bikes at present, an option of LED headlights would have been great. The instrument cluster and engine kill switch adds to the aesthetics of the scooter, it even has LED tail light, but unfortunately misses out in LED headlight. Even disappointing is that the halogen light doesn’t even serve much to the brightness.
