TVS has expanded its scooter portfolio by bringing in the all-new Jupiter 125 in India. The new TVS Jupiter 125 is positioned between the already existing Jupiter 110 and Ntorq 125. Launched in three different variants, the prices for the new TVS Jupiter 125 start at Rs 73,400.
TVS Jupiter 125: Price and Variants
The new TVS Jupiter 125 has been launched in three variants – steel wheels-front drum brake, alloy wheels-front drum brake and alloy wheels-front disc brake. The prices for these variants are as follows:
TVS Jupiter 125 steel wheels-front drum brake – Rs 73,400
TVS Jupiter 125 alloy wheels-front drum brake – Rs 76,800
TVS Jupiter 125 alloy wheels-front disc brake – Rs 81,300
TVS Jupiter 125: Design and Colours
The new TVS Jupiter 125 looks like an evolution over the Jupiter 110. The front apron comes with two curved chrome panels, which come integrated with daytime running LEDs and turn indicators within them. Also new to the scooter are bigger LED headlamp and LED tail lamp clusters and broader looking side body panels with 3D logos. The new Jupiter 125 gets 12-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, an apron mounted fuel tank cap and a small open storage bin in the back of the front apron with an integrated USB charging socket.
The Jupiter 125 gets a segment-leading 32-litres under-seat storage compartment and a part-digital instrument console, the latter of which has an analogue speedometer and a blue-backlit LCD screen for fuel gauge, odometer, trip meters, instantaneous and average fuel consumption, range and clock. The new TVS Jupiter 125 has been made available in four different colour options, namely Pristine White, Titanium Grey, Indiblue and Dawn Orange.
TVS Jupiter 125: Engine
The all-new four-stroke, single-cylinder, air-cooled, 124.8cc engine of the TVS Jupiter 125 is different from that of the TVS Ntorq 125. Unlike the performance-oriented engine of the Ntorq, the engine of the Jupiter is more refined and better suited for low-speed city riding. The engine is good enough to produce a maximum power output of 8.3 bhp @ 6,000 rpm and 10.5 Nm @ 4,500 rpm.
TVS Jupiter 125: Dimensions
Apart from an evolved design language, the new TVS Jupiter 125 also looks bigger and broader than the Jupiter 110. The new scooter is 65mm longer than the Jupiter 110, which liberates more space for floorboard and under seat storage compartment. The seat height of the TVS Jupiter 125 is set at 765mm, and the 5-litre fuel tank is placed below the floorboard.
TVS Jupiter 125: Suspension and Brakes
Sitting on an all-new frame, the new TVS Jupiter 125 has telescopic hydraulic forks at the front and a gas-charged single side-mounted hydraulic coil spring at the rear. While a 130mm front drum brake is standard in the first two variants, the range-topping variant gets a 220mm disc brake instead. Meanwhile, the rear has a 130mm drum brake as standard across the range.
