It has been just four months since the launch of the TVS Ntorq 125 and the company has already prepared a race version of the scooter christened ‘NTorq SXR’ for the fourth round of the Indian National Rally Championship that is already underway in Nashik.
Sporting new liveries that indicate more firepower underneath the skin, the SXR sports a tweaked ignition system along with a race tuned intake and exhaust system resulting in a power output of an impressive 20 horses compared to the road going version’s 9.25bhp. Top speed of the Ntorq SXR is over 120kmph. To keep up with the increased power output and to tackle the rally conditions, SXR comes with a race tuned hydraulic suspension and 12-inch knobby tyres.
On the debut of the TVS Ntorq SXR, B Selvaraj, team manager of TVS racing said, “The TVS SXR 160 has always been a formidable machine in the scooter racing arena. With the debut of TVS Ntorq SXR, we are confident to take the performance up by several notches. We have tested the scooter for performance and reliability and I am confident that it will set new benchmarks in the scooter class. The TVS Racing scooter team holds a strong winning record and the TVS Ntorq SXR will build on this success story.”
Tomorrow is the last day of round 4 of the INRC in Nashik and Asif Ali and Shamim Khan will ride the race prepped scooter in the event.
