About TVS Jupiter
The Jupiter is an 110cc scooter from TVS, positioned above the Wego. The country’s second best-selling scooter after the Activa, the Jupiter has been primarily targeted towards men, women also seem to buy it alot.
The TVS Jupiter gets a conservative no frills design which has turned out to be quite a hit among the Indian audience. The instrument cluster is a contemporary-looking analogue unit which misses out on a digital display and trip meter. It does get an ‘econometer’ which alerts the rider whether he is in eco mode or power mode. The equipment list consists of a 12v power socket, twin position lamps, external fuel cap, two retractable storage hooks and LED tail light.
Built on the Wego platform, the Jupiter is powered by a 110cc single cylinder air-cooled engine that churns out 8bhp and 8Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a CVT transmission. The Jupiter rides on 12-inch wheels with telescopic suspension at the front and gas-filled suspension in the rear. Stopping power is provided by 120mm drum brakes on both ends.
TVS also offers a special edition version of the Jupiter equipped with front disc brake, called the Jupiter MillionR. Apart from the disc brake, this version also gets a unique purple paint scheme and chrome inserts on mirrors and side panels. The standard version comes in seven paint schemes – blue, brown, grey, sliver, black, red and white. It competes with the Honda Activa 3G, Hero Maestro Edge, Yamaha Fascino, Mahindra Gusto and the Suzuki Let’s.
