The first edition of the TVS Ntorq 125 Call of Design contest has concluded today and Evanka Thimmaiah from Strate School of Design, Bengaluru, has claimed first place – a brand-new TVS Ntorq 125.
Contestants in the Call of Design competition were required to customise the exterior of the Ntorq scooter. However, these changes were limited to cosmetic aspects of the 125cc two-wheeler, like the colour scheme and seat cover, with the rest of the scooter remaining the same.
Other winners of the contest were Anoop Nellikalayil from National Institute of Design, Gandhinagar, who bagged the first runner-up prize, followed by Siddharth Sangwan from Industrial Design Center, IIT Bombay, and Sachin Sing Tensing from National Institute of Design, Gandhinagar, both of whom were announced as the joint third runners up. Rajat Kushwaha from IIT IDC was the winner for the viewer’s choice award.
The contest witnessed participation from over 300 students from the top 20 design schools across the country.
