TVS has recently announced that its flagship scooter, the NTorq 125 has crossed the 1 lakh sales mark. Ever since its launch, back in February this year, the scooter has garnered rave review from critics and fans alike. So much so, that it even replaced the Honda Grazia as the bestselling 125cc scooter. To put things into perspective, the Grazia clocked a sale of 17,147 units as compared to NTorq's 18,278 units last month.
This is mostly due to the scooter's value-for-money package when it comes to engine refinement and the features on offer. Just in time for the festive season, TVS has also updated the scooter with a new Metallic Red colour option.
Here's the company’s official press release for more details:
