It also comes with optional exhaust upgrade and remap further improving its power figures.

The TT125 has been built on the tubular space frame and carries a retro styling. While its bodywork is composed of stainless steel, the front mudguard is made up of carbon. At the front end, the scooter features rectangular full-LED headlamp with chrome surround and daytime running lights.
