An all-new scooter or a Jupiter 110 underneath?

TVS has finally entered the 125cc family scooter segment with the Jupiter 125. The scooter has a lot going for it from an accessible starting price of Rs 73,400 to many segment-first features. If received well, the Jupiter 125 could help TVS capture a sizable chunk of the market share. But what’s so unique about it? Here are five key points that will get you up to speed.

 

Looks Err...Different?

For all those who think otherwise, the Jupiter 125 is an all-new scooter. It’s been conceptualised  from the ground up, and looks like a grown-up and beefy version of the 110cc Jupiter. Sure, to our eyes it seems a bit flashy with all the chrome embellishments, but looks are subjective.

Extensive List Of Features

The scooter features a rectangular headlight and its uniquely designed LED tail light. The turn indicators use bulbs, though the front gets LED DRLs. 

And no, it doesn't get a full-digital console like the NTorq, instead opting for an analogue speedometer with a small digital inset on the right comprising trip meters, an odometer, live and average fuel consumption, a distance to empty indicator, a clock, and a fuel gauge. There are a few tell-tale lights as well.

 

Floorboard Integrated Fuel Tank

The TVS Jupiter 125 is the first and only 125cc scooter in the country to get a floorboard-integrated fuel tank. As a result, the fuel filler cap is positioned on the left side of the steering stem. You can open the fuel filler cap right from the multi-function ignition slot, which also allows you to access the underseat storage space.

 

Largest Underseat Storage In Its Segment

It's quite practical too! The Jupiter 125 gets the largest underseat storage in the segment it competes in. You have a humongous 33 litres of storage capacity, which TVS claims is good enough to store two ISI-certified helmets. There’s also an open cubby hole (2-litre capacity) under the key slot for your phone and other knick knacks, and there’s even a provision for a USB charger.

The only other Indian scooter that comes to mind with a larger boot space is the Ola S1 Pro, and that’s an electric.

 

Fuel-Efficient Engine and Premium Mechanicals

The Jupiter 125 uses the same 124.8cc single-cylinder motor as the NTorq, though in a different state of tune. It makes a mere 8.3PS which isn't impressive by any means, but packs a healthy dose of torque (10.5Nm) putting it just a tad bit below the Access 125.

TVS has kitted the Jupiter 125 with a silent starter system and also its IntelliGo idle stop-start system which should help it extract better fuel efficiency.

Also new is the chassis. Since the fuel tank is located under the floorboard, TVS engineers have had to fortify the section well. And what they have achieved is one of the largest floor spaces, enough to fit a gas cylinder, or so TVS claims.

Mechanically, the Jupiter 125 employs a telescopic fork and preload-adjustable gas-charged monoshock setup, neither of which are shared with any other TVS scooter. The rear shock has a unique remote 3-step preload adjuster, thus removing the need for special tools to tune the shock. Even the 12-inch wheels might remind you of the ones on the smaller Jupiter, though the top variant gets diamond-cut wheels, amping its premium quotient.

Braking hardware comprises a 130mm drum or a 220mm disc for the front wheel, with the rear 130mm drum a standard fitment across all trims.
