Default TVS Jupiter Classic Edition launched at Rs. 55,266

TVS has launched the Jupiter Classic Edition in India at a price of Rs. 55,266 (ex-showroom, Delhi). The Classic Edition comes with new features and in a new Sunlit Ivory body colour with 'Classic Edition' decals.

The Jupiter Classic Edition gets cosmetic upgrades such as chrome-finished mirrors, dual-tone seat, silver oak panels, a chrome-finished rear seat grab handle with a cushioned backrest, handle dampeners finished in chrome and different artwork in the instrument cluster. It also comes with a USB charger, windshield and a front disc brake.

The scooter measures 1,834 mm in length, 650 mm in width and 1,115 mm in height. It has a wheelbase measuring 1,275 mm, a ground clearance of 150 mm and a seat height of 765 mm. Fuel tank capacity is 5.0 litres. The body panels are all metal.

Mechanically, the Classic Edition is identical to the standard Jupiter. It is powered by the same 109.7cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that produces 7.9 BHP @ 7,500 rpm and 8 Nm of torque @ 5,500 rpm. The scooter uses a continuously variable transmission (CVT). It comes with electric start and the TVS patented Econometer, which basically provides two riding modes: Eco and Power.

The scooter is equipped with a telescopic suspension and a disc brake at the front and a monoshock with a drum brake at the rear.

Ouch ouch ouch..!

Got my Jupiter delivered just 4 days ago!

None the less, I probably wouldn't have gone for it.

I avoided the current model's beige interior panel version - because it neither looked significantly better than the black interior ones + did not justify the 2.5K premium over normal model.

I also avoided the current model's disk break version, given that the vehicle will be used within city and under sedate driving speeds. Did not justify the 5K premium over normal models. Plus disk break ones came only with the beige interior panel models, thus restricting the color options.

Why cannot TVS just launch the disk break version on all colors! I don't understand.

Coming to this classic model - there is absolutely no mechanical difference between the normal models and this one. Except maybe the disk break. Don't think it justifies the 5-8K premium it would be asked for (on road prices).

This probably is TVSs attempt to take on the classic Vespa models. Now, Vespa fans do have an alternative, cheaper one too. A decent compromise between Vespa's classic looks and TVSs much better after sales service.

to TVS!

Had been considering Jupiter as a replacement for my 9-year old Activa. The only reason we decided against it is non-availability of the storage box in the front. TVS doesn't have it as an accessory it seems! Otherwise a good product!

Looks like someone in TVS Product design is really fond of the Colour - Brown.
Brown footrest, Brown cowl, Brown seats, Brown Handlebar.
If James May would have been in the market for a scooter, he would have definitely purchased this with eyes closed.

Off topic, I booked a TVS Wego in white today. Guess what's the colour of it's seats? Brown.

Completely agree on this. If this is available as an option, I would have bought the Disc brake version instead of the regular one without batting an eyelid. 5K seems reasonable ask over the drum considering the number of additional parts required and safer braking option.

They surely have this as additional accessory and i have seen many jupiters with front storage box fitted to them, do check with the dealers or with accessories shops at your city.

I checked about this. The official accessory is an open box (a very slim one at that). They don't have a closed box like the ones you see on the Activa.

Then you should check it with the accessory shops in your city where it surely would be available. I have seen many Jupiters fitted with the front closed storage box. If not with the TVS dealer then try sourcing at the local accessory market.

How ugly is this! it looks like a wannabe Vespa to me. Just by putting a visor and chrome circular mirrors and other chrome bits, it doesn't look classic even if one calls it so. And the brown plastics don't age well as far as I have seen. Even if I had decided to buy a Jupiter, I wouldn't buy this version.
All said and done, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. For me this is ugly!

The ribbed seat cover looks nice. So does the backrest. The round crome mirrors look a bit quirky for the design. For a change the decals don't look bad. The crome garnish on the mud guard too is a nice touch.

When will they actually come out with a 125cc scooter instead of these gimmicks?

That is the reason why despite being a satisfied wego rider for over 6 years, I went for a Suzuki access instead of Jupiter
