The upcoming TVS scooter sits on a new-generation platform, and carries a futuristic design. This could be slightly more up-market and premium than its closest rival – Honda Activa. The production version of the vehicle will retain some components from the concept such as first-in-segment intelligent smartphone integration with GPS navigation and a smart TFT multi-function console for internet connectivity.
The scooter might also get a pair of large wheels fitted with radial tubeless tyres and advanced LED lighting system. Braking power for the EnTorq will come from the Roto petal dual discs brakes coupled with anti-lock braking system (ABS).
The EnTorq 210 concept was packed with an all-aluminum 212.5cc, liquid-cooled engine with fuel injected technology.

The scooter offers a fuel tank capacity of 8.5-litres.
The EnTorq scooter, with a 125cc power mill, will take on the Honda Activa that currently dominating the 125cc scooter space. It might also impact the sales of Suzuki Access 125, Mahindra Gusto 125 and other 125cc scooters.
