Paper Fight: Aprillia Storm 125 vs TVS Ntorq vs Honda Grazia

|
Added in: Aprilia

There was a time when scooters were considered to be ridden only for basic transport, including getting groceries and stuff. However, times have changed indeed. Scooters have now evolved into a practical alternative to smaller bikes, and sales are on the rise day by day. A huge chunk of these buyers are from the young crowd, for which manufacturers are bringing in new, sportier models in this segment. Aprilia’s brand new Storm 125, along with the likes of the TVS Ntorq and the Honda Grazia, are the sportier 125 cc scooters in our market. If you are looking to buy one of these scooters, this on-paper comparison of the three should help you lock in your decision, read ahead to know more.

Dimensions

In terms of dimensions, the Storm is the longest scooter out there, which should make it quite stable at high speed. However, the more compact dimensions of the other two motorcycles would be more useful in city traffic conditions, where scooters like these would spend most their time. While there is no official record of the under seat storage capacity in the Storm, it is quite large enough to accommodate a full-size helmet, however, the Ntorq, with 22 litres happens to be the most practical scooter in terms of storage space. At 107 kg, the Grazia is the lightest scooter amongst these three.

Features

In terms of features, the TVS is arguably the most loaded scooter in the segment. It comes with an all-digital instrument console and Bluetooth connectivity, with which you can also obtain turn by turn navigation. Other features on offer include illuminated under-seat storage and a mobile charger. The Honda is not too far away in terms of features, offering a front glove box, with a charger, digital instrument console and a 4-in-1 lock with the seat opening switch. The Aprilia seems to lack a bit in features compared with these two machines, using an analogue instrument console and rather basic design to keep the price low.
