After the BS6 transition, TVS had removed the disc variant from the equation. Now, not only has the disc returned but it has also got in a new feature. This new feature is the one found in the TVS XL100 and is called the i-Touchstart. It basically is a mechanism like the Honda scooters and bikes.

An all-in-one lock too has been introduced that amalgamates the seat, steering, ignition and fuel tank cap. The TVS Jupiter ZX disc price in India is Rs 69,052, ex-showroom.
