TVS Jupiter 125 Review In Images


TVS has pulled off quite a likeable product in the form of the Jupiter 125

While TVS carved out a decent share of the 125cc sporty scooter market for itself with the NTorq 125, it certainly had no grip worth talking about on the family-friendly 125cc scooter class. To remedy this, TVS has now launched the practical family-friendly Jupiter 125 in India. We rode it at the company’s Hosur test track and here’s our take on it through these detailed images. 

The TVS Jupiter 125 isn’t the most handsome looking scooter out there but it does have some interesting design cues, like the split LED headlight and the LED DRLs separating the bulb indicators. 

It gets ample chrome all around, and the diamond-cut alloy wheels borrowed from the Jupiter ZX are a nice touch too. 

TVS has plonked in a brand new 124.8cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine that dishes out  8.15PS and 10.5Nm. Compared to the Jupiter 110, this one feels quite lively and happily accelerates from nought to 60kmph. Post that the engine loses a bit of steam although it still makes it to 90kmph gradually. 

While we experienced vibrations from the footboard post 70kmph speed, the overall performance can be claimed to be fairly refined. 

Given that the Jupiter 125 is out and out a family-friendly two-wheeler, the fuel efficiency should be commendable and we expect around 55-60kmpl from it. 

It features an analogue console for the speedometer with a digital inset with a host of readouts such as fuel level, trip meter, clock and two trip meters. As of now, the Jupiter 125 gets no Bluetooth connectivity but TVS might offer it later if there’s enough demand. 

The TVS Jupiter 125 rides on 12-inch wheels and is sprung by a telescopic fork and a 3-step adjustable gas-charged rear shock (segment-first). Since the TVS test track is too smooth to test ride quality, we took the scooter to the Belgian Pave section of the track, where it sailed quite smoothly. However, our roads would be the perfect place to test the Jupiter 125’s mettle.  

The test scooter was equipped with a 220mm front disc and a 130mm rear drum, same as the Jupiter 110. The lever feel is on the spot and the bite too is excellent. 

The Jupiter 125’s seat is 65mm longer compared to the Jupiter 110, which means a lot more room for both the rider and the pillion to move around. The surface is quite even and at 765mm, it’s possibly the lowest seat height in its class. 

Even taller riders wouldn’t find it cumbersome to manoeuvre as the handlebar is quite high and shouldn't touch your knees while turning. 

Since the fuel tank is located in the floorboard, TVS has placed the fuel filler cap at the front. This is not only convenient to use but also helps to offer more underseat storage. The Jupiter 125 gets a 33-litre underseat space. 

Even the floorboard is wide enough to carry a gas cylinder, according to the TVS design brief. You also get an additional cubby holder at the front right side with a claimed 2-litres capacity. Right above it is the optional USB charging port.

Overall, the switchgear and the build quality is quite impressive. 

The asking price for the TVS Jupiter 125 is set at Rs 73,400 (ex-showroom Delhi) onwards, which is the same as the base variant Suzuki Access 125. We’ll find out how the two fare against each other once we pit them in our detailed comparo that’s coming soon.
