Two special edition variants of two of the most popular scooters from Honda and TVS compared in images
Honda recently launched the Limited Edition variant of the Activa 5G at Rs 55,032 for the base variant and Rs 56,897 for the DLX model (both ex-showroom Delhi). This special edition variant goes up against TVS’ premium version of the popular Jupiter, the Jupiter Classic Edition. Here’s an image-by-image comparison of the two:
While the Activa 5G Limited Edition features a dual-tone colour scheme with pinstripes, the Jupiter Classic Edition gets a sober yet retro looking beige colour. The Jupiter also gets chromed classic circular rear view mirrors and a windshield.
The Activa 5G Limited Edition features an LED headlight, whereas the Jupiter Classic Edition makes do with a halogen unit.
The Activa 5G Limited Edition gets 130mm drum brake on both ends, while the Jupiter Classic Edition comes with a more potent 220mm front disc and drum unit at the back. Both scooters get combined braking system as standard.
Even though it’s a Limited Edition, the Activa gets a trailing link type front suspension, whereas the Jupiter features telescopic forks which offer better ride quality. Also, it rides on bigger 12-inch alloys as opposed to the Activa’s 10-inch steel wheel.
Both the scooters feature a full-analogue instrument cluster. However, the Jupiter packs a nifty feature called Econometer which tells you if you’re riding the scooter efficiently or not. That said, the Activa does get a more feature-packed semi-digital instrument console in the DLX variant which comes with clock and trip meter in addition to the regular set of information.
The Activa’s switchgear is pretty standard and lacks a pass beam switch. The Jupiter’s high-beam switch, on the other hand, features an integrated pass button. This is really useful while overtaking.
The Activa packs a 3-in-1 seat opener switch, whereas the Jupiter just gets a traditional key slot with shutter.
Both scooters get an apron hook, but the one in the Jupiter is retractable unlike the Activa’s.
Though the Activa 5G Limited Edition’s seat is more premium than the standard variant, the Jupiter’s ribbed dual-tone seat with white stitching looks a lot classier. Plus, it gets the convenience of a cushioned backrest for enhanced pillion comfort.
Powering the Activa is a 109.19cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine which churns out 7.96PS and 9Nm. On the other hand, the Jupiter’s 109.7cc powerplant makes 7.99PS and 8.4Nm.
At the rear, the Activa gets a traditional bulb-type tail lamp, whereas the Jupiter gets more modern LED tail light. Moreover, the chrome backrest with the Jupiter badging makes it really stand apart. The Jupiter also gets an external fuel filler unlike the Activa’s underseat fuel lid.
