TVS Motor Company has launched a new Sheet Metal variant of its Jupiter scooter in India. Priced at Rs. 63,497, it is the most affordable Jupiter model yet. The Sheet Metal variant is exactly the same as the standard model except for a different wheel design. Hence, it offers an LED headlight, 21-liter under-seat storage, and a BS6-compliant, 109.7cc engine. Here's our roundup.
The TVS Jupiter is built on an underbone type frame and sports an indicator-mounted front apron, a flat-type single-piece seat, a silvered grab rail, and blacked-out alloy wheels. It packs an analog instrument console, an all-LED lighting setup, a mobile charger, and a 21-liter under-seat storage compartment. The bike has a kerb weight of 109kg and a 6.0-liter fuel tank.
The TVS Jupiter is powered by a 109.7cc, air-cooled engine, which comes linked to a CVT automatic gearbox. The mill generates a maximum power of 7.3hp at 7,000rpm and a peak torque of 8.4Nm at 5,500rpm.
To ensure the riders' safety, the TVS Jupiter is equipped with a disc/drum brake on the front wheel and a drum brake on the rear wheel.
