TVS Jupiter 125 Launch: What To Expect?
From estimated launch timeline to pricing and features, here’s what we can expect from the upcoming TVS Jupiter 125
As of now, TVS has only one scooter in the 125cc segment. While the TVS NTorq 125 may be sporty and youth-centric, the Hosur-based brand does not have anything for more mature buyers in this segment. So if you think about it, the TVS Jupiter 125 seems like the perfect scooter to fill this gap. While there’s no official confirmation yet, here’s what we can expect from the upcoming scooter:
Launch Timeline and Pricing
The TVS Jupiter 125 is likely to be launched somewhere around September this year. This should help TVS capitalise on the extra demand in the subsequent months of the festive season. If you’re wondering how much it’s going to cost, we believe it could be positioned around the same ballpark as the TVS NTorq 125, which starts from Rs 70,555 (ex-showroom Delhi) for the base front drum variant. The Jupiter 125 will basically serve as the more practical, family-friendly alternative to the NTorq 125.
The 110cc TVS Jupiter itself is loaded to the brim with enough features and we expect TVS to carry over all the bits to the bigger-engined Jupiter 125. So it could come with an external fuel-filler cap, apron-mounted cubby hole, USB charging port, parking brake, underseat boot light, silent starter, metal bodywork, LED headlight, and tail lamp.
Besides, TVS may also offer an integrated lock switch for effortless opening of the boot. The instrument cluster is likely to be fully digital, but unlike the NTorq 125, it may not come with a lap timer and acceleration timer as they aren’t really necessary in a family scooter. That said, expect essential features such as turn-by-turn navigation and call/SMS alert. If we’re lucky, the instrument cluster may come with a real-time mileage indicator as well.
Being a 125cc scooter, we expect a longer, comfier seat and not to mention, a slightly bigger underseat storage space.
Powertrain and Underpinnings
TVS already has a potent 125cc engine powering the NTorq 125. We expect the brand to use the same motor in the Jupiter 125 as well. However, it could be tuned to be slightly mellow to suit the family scooter’s character. In the NTorq, the 124.8cc single-cylinder air-cooled fuel-injected 3-valve motor churns out 9.38PS at 7000rpm and 10.5Nm at 5500rpm.
As far as the underpinnings are concerned, the bigger-engined Jupiter is likely to carry over the 110cc Jupiter’s telescopic front fork, rear gas-charged monoshock, front disc, rear drum, and 12-inch alloy wheels for optimum ride quality.
If our analysis is spot on, then with the Jupiter 125, TVS might just be able to crack the highly competitive 125cc family scooter segment dominated by heavyweights such as the Suzuki Access 125, Honda Activa 125, Hero Destini 125, and Yamaha Fascino 125. Fingers crossed until then!
