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. The base variant of the Jupiter is priced at Rs 49,766 (ex-showroom).
