TVS has released BS6-complaint Ntorq 125 strength and torque figures. The 124.8cc engine is now fuel-injected, producing 9.25hp at 7000rpm and a torque of 10.5Nm at 5500rpm. In contrast, the BS4-compliant engine from the Ntorq produced 9.4hp at 7,500 rpm and torque of 10.5Nm at 5,500rpm.
The BS6 engine produces, as you can see, marginally less power and also peaks at a lower rpm. The torque figure remains the same.
BS6: Why loose power on small engines?
A slight reduction in power seen in nearly any small-capacity scooter or motorcycle, so arising from the transition from BS4 to BS6.
The explanation is that BS6 requires a big step forward in terms of emission regulation. So much so that virtually every maker had to move from carburetors to better fuel injection (FI) systems.
But actually switching to FI, not the only cost factor and the extra precious metal need in the exhaust catalytic converter another major price assumption to remember.
Motors that generate more strength need more catalyst content to allow a very specific generalization. When a motorcycle is a luxury machine it doesn’t really matter to increase the price by a few thousand, and that’s why most of the performance-oriented machines from TVS, KTM, and others seem to maintain their power figures.
Returning to the Ntorq 125 TVS. It would be important to see if the latest BS6 motor provides an experience as peppy as the BS4 model. The previous engine also created a sporty exhaust note that added character to the Ntorq. We’ll wait for a test ride to check if any of that sound is missing to the BS6 engine.
The motor probably one of the BS4 Ntorq 125’s greatest highlights, as the scooter produced sprightly output despite one of the segment’s heaviest models.
In addition to the engine and performance. We also liked the Ntorq for its ride and handling and its comprehensive list of features that include Bluetooth connectivity.
BS6 TVS Ntorq 125 prices launch at 65.975 Rs.
