TVS Jupiter: Variants Explained
Here’s what TVS offers in each variant of its best-selling scooter
The Jupiter has been TVS’ highest-selling scooter for a long time and now in a bid to make the scooter even more alluring, the Hosur-based brand re-launched the Jupiter Grande Edition recently. This brings the total number of variants to four and here’s what they’re all about:
The standard variant comes with a halogen headlamp and analogue instrument cluster. This variant is available in eight different colours and is priced at Rs 53,491. Even though it’s a base variant, TVS has made sure even this model comes with proper 12-inch front and rear alloy wheels wrapped with tubeless tyres.
The Jupiter ZX variant comes with premium beige coloured interior panels, LED headlamp and a semi-digital instrument cluster, premium seat cover and a preload-adjustable rear shock absorber. Interestingly, the LED headlamp and the semi-digital instrument cluster made their debut in the Grande Edition some time ago. The Grande Edition was then discontinued and these features were made standard in the ZX variant.
The ZX variant is available in two choices: with either a front 220mm disc brake or a 130mm drum unit. The former costs Rs 59,990 whereas the latter will set you back by Rs 57,489. Also, the disc brake-equipped variant features chrome finish on the rear view mirror for added premium quotient. There are two colours to choose from: Starlight Blue and Royal Wine.
Jupiter Classic Edition:
As the name suggests, the Classic edition is more of a retro take on the Jupiter. It comes with two exclusive colour schemes (Autumn Brown and Sunlit Ivory) with sticker work, a windshield, chromed-out circular rearview mirrors and chrome emblem on the front fender.
It also gets a classic-looking analogue instrument cluster, brown interior panels, premium ribbed seat cover and a cushioned backrest. This variant does not come with LED headlamp but it does feature a 220mm front disc brake as standard though. The Jupiter Classic Edition costs Rs 59,990, which is the same price as the ZX disc brake-equipped variant.
Jupiter Grande Edition:
The Jupiter Grande Edition is the top-of-the-line variant and is priced at Rs 62,346. This makes it Rs 8,855 more expensive than the standard variant. For the added premium, this scooter gets premium-looking diamond-cut alloy wheels, chrome highlights on the front fender and rearview mirror and an exclusive Tech Blue colour scheme. But more importantly, it gets a full-LED headlamp and a semi-digital instrument console with Bluetooth connectivity.
The connectivity option is similar to the one in the TVS NTorq 125 but here its functions are limited to call and text notification, over speeding alert and trip report among others. That said, the text notification function is only for Android users and the notification will not appear for IOS users. Other notable features include a standard 220mm disc brake, premium seat cover and a preload-adjustable rear shock absorber.
In terms of mechanicals, all these variants share the same 109.7cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine which makes 7.99PS at 7500rpm and 8.4Nm at 5500rpm. The frame is common among all the variants too, and so is the telescopic fork. TVS has equipped all the variants with combined braking system as standard too. All prices are ex-showroom, Delhi.
