MY TVS Jupiter
Awesome scooter I purchased it on 1st May 2014. I was impressed by the design, look, comfort and mileage of the scooter. It's a scooter and differs from the bike. I was unsure about the mileage claimed by TVS 62km/ltr. When I decided to check the fuel economy of the scooter I did following exercise. I made the fuel tank totally empty by driving it till the last drop of petrol. When it stops at 102 kilometre due to an empty tank. I filled 4.5Ltr petrol which I had carried separately in the can. I started driving, ( for safety precaution I kept half a litre of fuel in a bottle separately) after driving the vehicle between 20 to 40 km/ph at economy mode ( green indicator in meter ) in about 10 to 12 day my shooter stopped at 354.8Km. As the fuel tank got empty. So in 4.5 Litre petrol, I got the mileage of 252.8 Kilometre (354.8Km - 102km) so my scooter gave me a mileage of "56.17Km/ltr" hope that I get improve mileage after for servicing and it may touch 60 kilometres per litre. I would like to add that this test was carried at 50% of village roads n 50% highway... Damn happy with scooter... The only problem with a scooter is a bit less comfortable for a tall person like me of 5"11...So can't get the comfort like my Pulsar...But after all its a scooter. Top features.... 1. Huge storage space I can keep my full-size helmet in the boot. 2. Two luggage hooks.. 3. Great suspenshion..Thanks to its 12 inches wheels n gas charged suspension 4. Tubeless tyres 5. External fuel filling 6. Catchy look 7. Economy & low fuel indicators in metres 8. A hand brake and many more improvement needed... 1. Digital meter 2. Side stand indicator 3. Fuel reserve option 4. Disc brake.
