TVS Motor has expanded the Jupiter range of scooters by launching a new variant. The new TVS Jupiter Classic edition has been priced at Rs-55,266 (ex-showroom – Delhi) and is on sale at TVS dealerships across the country. The base variant of the TVS Jupiter has been priced at Rs.49, 766 whereas the Jupiter ZX carries a price tag of Rs-54,366 (both prices are ex-showroom, Delhi). The new Jupiter Classic is the most expensive variant in the Jupiter scooter range. As the name suggests, the scooter gets some classic design elements like windshield, chrome mirrors and backrest to give it a retro feel (read as Vespa inspired). Other design elements on the new Jupiter Classic include dual tone seats, chrome finished bar ends, silver oak finished panels and new graphics. It also features a unique shade which TVS calls sunlit ivory to distinguish itself from other variants.
Commenting on this launch, Aniruddha Haldar, Vice President (marketing) – Commuter Motorcycles, Scooters & Corporate Brand, TVS Motor Company, said, “Timelessness is the true hall mark of a CLASSIC. Unchangeable and yet always modern that’s how we have always seen our offering of TVS Jupiter to our consumers. And continuing its promise of ZYADA KA FAYDA, we celebrate timeless value in celebrating CLASSIC, the all-new TVS Jupiter Classic Edition. Its unique features cover style, value, practicality like the pillion back rest or the stylish windshield. Millions of consumers have and continue to repose their faith in TVS Jupiter; this gives us great confidence.”
Powering the new scooter is the same 109.7cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine that does duty on the standard version. The air-cooled motor delivers 8PS of peak power at 7500rpm and 8.4Nm of torque at 5500rpm, which is on par for its class. Suspension duties are handled by telescopic front forks and mono-shock unit at the rear. Disc brake comes as standard on the front wheel, while the rear wheel is anchored by a drum brake unit. USB charger is standard along with other features like external fuel filler cap, reserve light, power and eco mode indicator and pass light switch as seen on the standard Jupiter. The new TVS Jupiter Classic will compete against the stylish Yamaha Fascino which retails for Rs.54, 593 (ex-showroom, Delhi). The TVS Jupiter, in our opinion, is among the best 110cc scooters on sale and in the new Classic variant, it gets an added dash of style.
