TVS Jupiter 125 To Rival Activa 125 And Access 125
In India, the 125cc gearless scooter sector is fiercely competitive, and TVS has added another competitor in the form of the Jupiter 125. The Jupiter 125cc has finally been launched by TVS, at a starting price of INR 73,400. The new Jupiter, according to TVS, was built from the ground up, including the engine and chassis! It comes in three basic versions: a steel wheel version with drum brakes, a steel wheel version with drum brakes and alloy wheels, and a front disc brake-equipped model with alloy wheels.
Despite its similarities to its 110cc sibling, TVS has made sure to incorporate specific features that indicate it is a premium offering. It’s still a simple but sophisticated design. The tail lamp and headlight setups have also been entirely changed. In some variations, diamond-cut alloys are also available. TVS has also included several useful features such as a start-stop system, USB charging port, and engine cut-off on the side stand.
Its new part-analog, the part-digital instrument cluster has also been fully overhauled, and it now displays a clock, real-time fuel consumption, average fuel consumption, and fuel level, among other things.
While we had expected the TVS Jupiter 125 to have the same powertrain as the Ntorq 125, this is not the case; instead, the business has created a totally new 124.8cc engine specifically for this scooter. This mill can produce 8.3 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 10.5 Nm at 4,500 rpm.
A telescopic fork and a gas-charged single-shock at the rear handle suspension responsibilities. A 220mm front disc and a 130mm rear drum are in charge of stopping the car. Both ends of the lower variants have drum brakes.
The Jupiter 125, according to TVS, delivers more of everything. It has a massive 32-liter under-seat storage compartment that can fit two full-size helmets.
The seat is also the longest in its class, measuring 65mm longer than the Jupiter 110. The seat height is set at a comfortable 765mm.
The base variant is priced at INR 73,400, while the alloy wheel drum brake version costs INR 76,800. The most expensive model costs INR 81,300. Dawn Orange, Indiblue, Pristine White, and Titanium Grey are the four colors available for the new TVS Jupiter 125.
