TVS Jupiter Price
The Jupiter 110 is the first attempt by TVS, for a full-size unisex family scooter, and it somewhat succeeds on its goal of luring the mature as well as young bloods. Among the stupendous and sure-footed rivals, it is able to find its own path, owing to its smart design (which may seem a copy of competitors, for some), big capacious feel, fabulously refined engine, a whole host of intelligent features, trademark TVS handling capabilities and a fantastic modern suspension system helping to offer that good ride quality. Overall, it’s a fresh and all-rounded scooter which scores heavily in almost all the requirements which a normal Indian scooter buyer looks for in the market. And with a very aggressive price of Rs.44,200, it is giving its other similar sized scooters run for their money, with being around Rs.3-5000 cheaper than its rivals. No surprises then, TVS surely has another winner in its hands.
Review of TVS Jupiter
TVS Jupiter OverView
We all are aware of how old player TVS is, as a scooter manufacturer. Back in the good old “Malgudi” days, when TVS launched the concept of gearless scooters, through their first model here – Scooty. The puny 60cc scooter became an instant hit, especially among female riders, who wanted a convenient ride for their shopping and office commutes, as motorcycles were a ‘taboo’ for them. It is the magic of TVS, that even in today’s time, every gearless scooter in the market is given a synonym as Scooty. It’s not a hidden fact that, TVS is celebrated as one of the most lovable scooter manufacturers of Indian market, whose each gearless vehicle has been favorites to both male and female consumers. Even the present line up of Scooty Pep+, Streak and Wego has maintained the TVS standards of producing benchmarks. Now, going ahead in order to hold a strong position and to tackle the over-growing competition from the Jap players, the home-grown company has launched the much-awaited scooter in India – Tvs Jupiter 110. With the sharing of engine and platform with the super-acclaimed Wego, it’s set to become a full-size family scooter reminiscent in Indian households, on the lines of Activa and Access. Can it be successful in doing this task, or will it become a “common man” amongst the crowd? Let’s dig out the fact.
TVS Jupiter Designing
If you were expecting an all new design language from TVS, then you will find the Tvs Jupiter 110 a bit of disappointment. That doesn’t means that it is not a handsome set of wheels. The large headlight and the front apron flanked by the turn indicators on the either side give the forward stance of Jupiter a mature feel, which seems like it is a Wego on steroids. On moving sideways, the feeling of being bulky continuous, with the extra big side panels and the segment-best footboard commanding a leg space of 1275mm, which is spacious enough to carry a full-size LPG cylinder in the horizontal position. The side panels come embossed with “Jupiter” emblem, embossed in 3-D fashion, which make them look premium. The 12-inch alloy wheels, shodded with tubeless tires, are painted in black and enhance the style quotient. The rear is also in league with the bulbous appearance, with it being one of the few rear ends of a scooter to sport LED tail lamps, with clear lens turn indicators on both sides. The scooter also features some interesting details like pass-by switch for the headlamps for easy and safe overtaking maneuvers (normally found in motorcycles but first for an Indian scooter), low fuel indicator, retractable bag hooks, conveniently placed external fuel filler, ergonomically styled E-Z center stand, twin pilot lamps for better visibility in dim weathers and a theft-proof key shutter lock. The instrument cluster has also a simple, but sober feel to it, with an analogue speedometer, odometer, fuel gauge and the other necessary standard tell-tale lights. The palm grips, build quality and switchgear are also top notch, with negligible niggles. And finally, coming back to the first statement here, which reminds me about the word “disappointment” mentioned there - the fact that the whole design and appearance of Jupiter is tad too familiar. It looks like TVS has took all the existing scooters available in India as the basic ingredients and produced a cuisine which shares the basic design of all those scooters from every angle of vision. This smart scooter from TVS looks like a mixed bag of design cues from Activa, Access, Maestro and its own stable mate, the Wego. Nevertheless, it’s a very fresh and practical design which the family-oriented buyers will love at first sight. Plus, the additional useful goodies and features, which it comes in-built with, make the scooter stand apart from the crowd and a fresh choice amongst the unisex scooters.
TVS Jupiter Engine And Performance
Not going apart from others, this is the department where TVS has played safe hands. The TVS Jupiter 110 comes bolstered with the very flexible and tried-and-tested 109.7cc, single-cylinder, 4-stroke, air cooled OHC petrol engine, which has been loved earlier in the Wego too. The engine is technically equipped with Digital IDI with Ignition Map Technology, which helps it to churn a maximum power output of 8 bhp at 7500 rpm and a maximum torque of 8 Nm at 5500 rpm. The transmission is the industry standard V-matic transmission and is assisted with both kick and electric starters. Despite of the added bulk in sheet metal, as compared to the zero-figured Wego, the performance is almost identical to it, with the 0-60 sprint covered in just 7.2 seconds, with the top speed being 90 kmph. But the most important mechanical aspect which an Indian buyer expects from a scooter is a decent fuel efficiency figure, and here TVS scores good brownie points. With having viscous paper type air filter and a fuel tank capacity of 5.3 liters, TVS claims that the Jupiter is capable of returning a respectable mileage of 62 kmpl, which is on par with all of its rivals.
TVS Jupiter Braking And Handling
The TVS scooters have always been adorable and famous for their chassis flexibility and fabulous handling, with the Wego being the current benchmark in these criteria. This truly implies that the Tvs Jupiter 110 too carries all its genes from its other family members. The frame of this scooter is a high rigidity underbone type, which along with the bigger 12 inch rims, aids this scooter for easy handling around sharp corners and severe traffic. The long wheelbase of 1275mm helps this scooter to provide a stable and pliant ride. The suspension system of the scooter has the advanced telescopic forks at front and a unit swing with spring loaded hydraulic and gas-filled shock absorbers at the rear, making it one of the most advanced shockers set-up amongst the scooter market here. The brakes too are among the segment bests, with bigger 130mm diameter drum brakes at both front and rear wheels. The ride quality is also smooth, with the fabulous suspension allowing the scooter to glide over big potholes and bumpers. The large, wide and well-cushioned saddle made up of anti-skid material, also helps in enhancing the seating comfort for two riders easily.
TVS Jupiter Safety Features
In India, the maufacturers have never dared to offer sophisticated safety fetaures on the scooters, and TVS is not an exception here. Though we expect a front disc brake unit in Tvs Jupiter 110, similar to as that found in Wego, may make its way anytime soon, in the near future.
