TVS Jupiter, the popular 110 cc scooter from the home-grown two-wheeler manufacturer has been launched in India with an updated BS-IV compliant engine.
The prices remain unchanged with the base variant launched at Rs 49,666 and the top-of-the-line ZX variant with disc brake priced at Rs 53,666 (All ex-showroom, Delhi).
The Jupiter is the second scooter from TVS Motor Company to get a BS-IV engine this year after the TVS Wego. Like its other 110 cc sibling, the updated TVS Jupiter now also comes with Automatic Headlamp On (AHO) function in line with the new safety norms.
The Jupiter will now also be available in two new colour options – Jade Green and Mystic Gold, along with the existing colours.
Apart from being BS-IV compliant, the powertrain remains unchanged as the Jupiter continues to use the same all-aluminium, low-friction 109.7 cc single-cylinder engine tuned to produce 8 bhp of power at 7500 rpm and 8 Nm of torque at 5500 rpm.
The motor comes paired to an automatic transmission. The metal bodied, TVS Jupiter is styled to have a substantial on-road presence, which delivers high-performance ride quality with superior ride comfort.
The scooter also comes with TVS patented Econometer, which guides riders in both ‘Eco Mode’ and ‘Power Mode’ and the engine delivers best-in-class fuel economy in ‘Eco’ mode.
The BS-IV compliance is denoted by the sticker seen on the front panel.
The TVS Jupiter is one of the most popular 110 cc scooters in India and the company has sold over 1.5 million units of the scooter till now.
The Jupiter rivals the likes of the newly launched Honda Activa 4G, Mahindra Gusto and the Hero Maestro Edge.
