25th August, 2015: With some cosmetic updates,TVS has launched a special edition of Jupiter. It runs on a 109.7cc engine that claims a mileage of 62kmpl. The special edition gets an exclusive Stallion Brown colour scheme with Beige-coloured interior panels and the incorporation of a duracool seat that keeps it 10 degrees cooler than a usual seat. A “Scooter of the Year” emblem is also stacked at the front panel which gives it a premium look. At a nominal price of Rs. 46,925 (ex-showroom Delhi), the scooter is seen as a tough competitor of Honda Activa. Besides the special edition paint job, its standard version is available in the following shades: Titanium Grey, Matte Beige, Sparkling Silver, Midnight Black, Volcano Red and Pristine White. Recently, the company has introduced another variant christened as Jupiter ZX that features Beige inner panels and Dura cool seat and costs Rs. 2,000 more over the standard version.
Awarded as the “Scooter of the Year 2014”, TVS’s decision of bringing up the Jupiter in 110cc class paid off well. It is loaded with some supercool features which make it a promising product in the TVS portfolio. The scooter has revived the Indian Scooter market with its stylish looks, a pack of convenient features and a good fuel economy.
TVS Jupiter is powered by a 109.7cc, four-stroke, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine which develops a maximum power of 7.88bhp at 7500rpm with a peak torque of 8Nm at 5500rpm. The CVT-i engine assures a decent fuel economy of 62kmpl, as claimed by the company, along with a smoother engine performance. TVS Jupiter’s body is mounted on a High Rigidity Underbone type chassis.
The suspension system of TVS Jupiter includes advance telescopic suspension at the front and gas-charged monoshock at the rear. The tubeless tyres come in the size of 90/90-12 at both ends. The braking kit employs 130mm drum brakes for the front as well as rear. TVS Jupiter special edition comes with a duracool seat which the Chennai based manufacturer claims as 10 degree cooler and comfortable than other scooter saddles.
TVS Jupiter comes with a pair of twin pilot lamps to make it more noticeable in the dark. It comes in an all-black theme with a bold 3D-emblem, saying Jupiter, at side panels. The tail-lamp section is filled with red LED’s with clear lens blinkers. The instrument console of TVS Jupiter is neat and easily readable with TVS-signature driving mode indicators and a low fuel indicator. The switch-section of Jupiter employs a unique one of its kind pass-by switch which is quite convenient. A key-shutter lock like the one in Honda Activa also find its place here. An external fuel filling inlet also add up to the convenience factors.
TVS Jupiter also features a mobile charging port, retractable bag hooks and a spacious under seat storage of 17 liter. The handle of the scooter can be locked in both directions, left and right, giving another benefit to its customers. With a very affordable price, it truly deserves becoming the most popular and trustworthy scooter of the country. It is capable of sweeping other 110cc scooters off their feet with its superior ride quality and loads of reliable features.
TVS Jupiter has been crafted artistically that gives it a well-balanced and highly stable body structure. The front profile gets a stylish and sharp headlamp with twin positioning lamps and triangular shaped clear lens blinkers embedded intelligently in the apron. The scooter receives a wider dura cool seat that offers an optimum comfort to the rider and pillion. The overall body profile goes on increasing while approaching the rear end. The side panels receive a 3D emblem that says Jupiter bold and clear. The manufacturer has coated it in an all-black theme that delivers a high-end and premium finish to it. Coming to the rear, the vehicle has a full LED tail lamp unit integrated with clear lens blinkers. The external fuel fill inlet has been drilled just above the tail lamp section.
The scooter has body dimensions of 1,834mm x 650mm x 1,115mm (LxWxH) and comes with a wheelbase of 1,275mm that offers good handling. Furthermore, a minimum ground clearance of 150mm ensures maximum stability around the corners. The vehicle has been fitted with a 5 liter fuel tank and weighs just 108kgs that makes it easy to ride and convenient. The instrument cluster of the vehicles comes with an analogue speedometer, odometer and fuel gauge along with Economy and Power modes and the usual telltale lights.
TVS Jupiter gets its revs from a 109.7cc, air-cooled, OHC single cylinder, four-stroke engine that comes mated to an automatic transmission system. It develops a peak power of 7.88bhp at 7,500rpm along with a maximum torque of 8Nm at 5,500rpm. The refined mill comes assisted with Digital IDI with Ignition Map Technology that ensures an undelayed ignition. With this arrangement, the scooter sprints from 0 to 60kmph in 7.2 seconds and attains a top speed of 85kmph.
TVS Jupiter moves on 90/90-12 tubeless tyres equipped over stylish black alloy wheels. The stopping potential is provided by reliable 130mm drum brakes installed at the front as well as rear. To avail a comfortable and stress free ride, the manufacturer has equipped the vehicle with durable advance telescopic forks at the front and hydraulic, gas-filled shock absorbers at the rear.
The scooter has a highly luminous 12V-35/35W headlight at the front that brightens up the road well in dark, thereby ensuring a proper and good visibility. The twin rear view mirrors keeps the rider alert and aware of the traffic behaviour behind his back. The pass-by switch ensures easy and safe overtakings. Moreover, it has a parking brake as well that prevents it from unintentional sliding or rolling. The key shutter lock prevents the chances of theft by covering the keyhole with a strong, tamper-proof cover.
