Bought a TVS NTorq XT after riding my 2015 Hero Xtreme for 1.5 lakh km

I was planning to get a Yamaha Aerox 155 but it costs over Rs 2 lakh in Bangalore. Moreover, it has a varying fuel efficiency ranging from 25 km/l to 40 km/l.

BHPian Sarvodaya recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Just got mine two weeks back, Ntorq XT model. It comes with Bluetooth navigation. Was looking for a replacement for my 2015 CB Xtreme which has just finished 1,52,000 Kms. Due to budget constraints had to settle for Ntorq. It now comes with a hazard switch, and auto start-stop.

Has been maintaining 30 to 50 kmph. Got 46 kmpl on tank to tank method. Scooter is good for city driving. Engine is smooth and initial pick-up and engine braking is good. It comes with synchronized braking. Pressing the left lever brake is applied to both wheels, Pressing the right lever, only the front brake is applied. Still getting used to the brakes, no sharp bite, linear braking.

Suspension is not bouncy and for my height (5.9) I am able to sit comfortably. Once even travelled about 60 kms in the city.

Was planning Yamaha Aerox, but as per many reviews - hard suspension, flimsy side stand, no grab rail for the pillion, moreover, it costs over 2 lakhs in Bangalore plus varied mileage ranging from 25 kmpl to 40 kmpl.

The Smart Connect is good for the most part. It records your journey details, kms, average speed. But somebody stupid has decided to omit Average FE, Instatenous FE which Jupiter gets. The navigation is Map My India. It gets to most places, but not like Google Maps. Another problem with navigation is if somebody sends their location on WhatsApp, you cannot open that link in the TVS app.

Completed about 500 kms.
