TVS Jupiter – New BS6
LATEST: The TVS Jupiter BS6 has received a marginal price hike of a little over Rs 600 and is now priced between Rs 62,062 and Rs 68,562. This is the first time that prices have gone up since the BS6 version of the scooter was launched in March. The updated scooter is now around Rs 8,500 more expensive than its BS4 predecessor.
TVS Jupiter Price: The TVS Jupiter BS6 is available in three variants: standard, ZX and Classic priced at Rs 62,062, Rs 64,062 and Rs 68,562 respectively. Previously a front disc brake was offered as an option but that is not available anymore.
TVS Jupiter Features: The Jupiter BS6 now comes equipped with an LED headlight as compared to the previous halogen unit. Since it’s fuel-injected, it also gets a check-engine light. There is a large 21-litre underseat storage compartment, a sizeable 2-litre cubbyhole on the back of the apron, as well as mobile phone charging.
TVS Jupiter Engine: The TVS Jupiter BS6 continues to be powered by the same 109.7cc single-cylinder engine that it has always used, but the motor is now fuel-injected to help it comply with BS6 emission norms. It currently generates 7.4PS and 8.4Nm which is 0.51PS less than the BS4 version, but torque remains the same.
TVS Jupiter Suspension & Brakes: Suspension duties on the TVS Jupiter are handled by a conventional telescopic fork and 3-step preload-adjustable monoshock. The Jupiter was previously offered with an optional front disc brake in the BS4 model, but now there are only drum brakes available at both ends. At 109kg, the BS6 scooter is 1kg heavier than before.
TVS Jupiter Rivals: The Jupiter competes with other 110cc scooters like the Honda Activa 6G and Hero Pleasure Plus. In terms of pricing, it also goes up against the Honda Shine BS6 and Hero Maestro Edge 125.
