The company considers TVS JUPITER among the new wave of feature rich TVS products: offering greater comfort, convenience and first time features. TVS Jupiter is powered by a next generation noise-free, all-aluminum, low-friction engine that delivers an amazing mix of power, superior acceleration and best in class fuel efficiency. The metal bodied, TVS Jupiter is styled to enthuse the male consumer. TVS Jupiter delivers high performance ride quality and superior ride comfort making it a perfect, sensible runabout.

Electric or kick start fires up TVS Jupiter's 110 powertrain which generates maximum power of 5.88 kW (8 bhp) at 7500 rpm while producing maximum torque of 8 Nm at 5500 rpm, which synthesize to deliver a solid four stroke ride experience. TVS Jupiter offers TVS patented Econometer which guides riders in both 'Eco Mode' and 'Power Mode'. The engine delivers best-in-class fuel economy when the rider is in 'Eco' mode. This helps the rider to manage and achieve highest possible fuel efficiency from TVS Jupiter.

The scooter's fuel tank, which has a capacity of 5 litres can be filled via an external fuel fill only offered on TVS scooters, for hassle free quick refuelling and protecting contents of the underseat storage area from petrol fumes. TVS Jupiter has the largest leg space and comes with retractable front and under-seat bag hooks, which further improve space management. TVS Jupiter also has 17 litres of spacious under seat storage facility that can accommodate a full face helmet. An under-seat mobile charger provision allows charging on the go.

Several category first, unique features have been incorporated in TVS Jupiter. For the first time in the scooter segment, TVS Jupiter will come with a pass-by switch, which enables safety and ease of riding on highways.

TVS Jupiter has the brightest headlamp among scooters. It is fitted with unique twin city lamps, and stylish LED tail lamps complete the rear end, that save electrical load on the engine providing better fuel efficiency apart from high visibility.

TVS Jupiter offers stability with agility. Its large wheelbase of 1275 mm makes it one of the most stable scooters in its class with a remarkable turning radius of 1910 mm, amongst the shortest in its peers. Lightweight, all-black, no rust alloy wheels enhances durability while tubeless tyres offer superior road grip.
