TVS Jupiter is Chennai-based manufacturer’s one of the most successful products. It won’t be wrong if we say that the TVS Jupiter has played a very crucial role in strengthening the bikemaker’s threshold in the Indian scooter market. Where the Activa once ruled in an almost monopolistic way, the Jupiter came and made a dent in its sales figures. It had all things going for it but the option of a disc brake went absent in its BS6 iteration.
TVS has now launched the updated Jupiter which gets a disc brake at the front along with some other changes. TVS Motor Company has introduced Jupiter ZX Disc variant with an upgraded electric start technology ‘i-Touchstart’.
The technology provides a silent and instant start minus the cranking noise, making it ideal for repeated starts in stop-go traffic. ‘i-Touchstart’* also improves battery life and provides a maintenance-free system. The TVS Jupiter ZX now also comes with an all-in-one lock to operate the ignition, steering lock, seat lock and fuel tank cap with a single keyhole. This enables the rider to access all functions with ease. Along with technology and convenience, the TVS Jupiter ZX also offers a Disc brake for rider safety. This launch is in line with TVS Motor Company’s continuous endeavour to provide best-in-class features which cater to the evolving need of Indian customers.
The TVS Jupiter ZX is equipped with Ecothrust Fuel injection (ET-Fi) technology and ‘i-Touchstart’* with an integrated starter generator system which delivers 15% better mileage, better startability, refinement along with durability. The scooter has LED headlamp, 2-litre glove box, mobile charger and 21-litre storage. The adjustable shock absorbers further enhance riding convenience.
TVS Jupiter’s 110cc engine generates a maximum power of 5.88 kW (8 bhp) at 7500 rpm while producing a maximum torque of 8 Nm at 5500 rpm. TVS Jupiter ZX Disc with ‘i-Touchstart’* is priced at Rs. 69,052/- (ex-showroom, Delhi) and is available in the colour selection of Matte Starlight Blue, Starlight Blue and Royal Wine.
