TVS Motor is on a roll. The manufacturer launched its first BS-VI product in the Apache RTR series yesterday. Now, they have got India’s first BS-VI compliant 110cc scooter – the Jupiter Classic. The TVS Jupiter BS-VI price in India is Rs 67,911, ex-showroom. That’s a difference of Rs 7,000 over the BS-IV model. A new colour (Indiblue) too has been launched along with the regular options. Bookings are on while the deliveries will start in a few weeks time.
What are the special bits of the TVS Jupiter BS-VI?
Apart from the new colour, the engine is BS-VI compliant. It gets fuel injection technology. This promises a better fuel economy – up by 15%. TVS hasn’t mentioned anything about the power or torque numbers. We expect them to be a tad lower as the Apaches too have gone down in power. The previous numbers were 7.8PS/8.4Nm. The company says that its BS-VI engine is tuned more towards economy than outright power. Expect the efficiency to be around 65kmpl now. The Apache series has got its Fi leaning towards power, though the actual numbers speak a different story.
There is a front USB panel charger available with the scooter as standard now and there is a mobile cubby hole too. TVS has provided a tinted visor. The semi-digital instrument console has a Fi indicator on it too.
TVS tells us that only the Classic model has been rolled out now. The other trims like the base, ZX as well as Grande will come at a later stage. Expect a similar price hike. The Classic doesn’t have a front disc brake, so the ZX with this option will be available for Rs 2,000 more. As far as the base version is concerned, its prices are expected to be up by around Rs 10,000. This is because TVS might have to shift to a semi-digital instrument console for adding the Fi indicator.
