TVS Jupiter First Ride Review [Exclusive]


TVS Jupiter Scooter Review

TVS Jupiter Review

Bike Tested: 2013 TVS Jupiter

Price OTR Mumbai: Rs. 52,200/-

The TVS Jupiter is the most rounded 110cc scooter, offering terrific value.

TVS has just launched the new male oriented scooter in the market called the Jupiter. Now you may wonder why the company has called it the Jupiter. Jupiter is the largest planet in the Milky Way, hence it gels with the tagline that TVS has come up with “Zyada ka Fayda”. The Jupiter also has more moons than any other planet which clarifies what TVS is trying to say, that this Jupiter on Earth has more features too. While the motorcycle segment is in doldrums, the scooter market is posting a healthy growth and the Jupiter comes at the right time to boost TVS’ market share. We gets astride the TVS Jupiter and our first impressions of this ‘male scooter’ are very positive.

TVS Jupiter Scooter Road TestTVS Jupiter Review

TVS has made a very smart move with a valid tagline and nameplate, which is gelling with the product unlike other manufactures, which end up doing vice versa. Wait a minute, if this is a male oriented scooter why was the scooter not called Mars? Perhaps NASA and chocolate bar makers would not agree. Anyways, back to the scooter. The Jupiter is creating the right kind of buzz for the Hosur based company and the South based automaker is very interested in selling the Jupiter in good numbers, as it continues its regional launch spree.

TVS Jupiter User ExperienceTVS Jupiter India Review

If you loved Cocktail (the movie) and love drinking cocktails, then you are going to love this scooter. The Jupiter is a mix of almost all the scooters you have seen till date. Activa, Maestro, Aviator, etc. However, the final finishing and bulbous side panels give the desired look that the market needs and that’s what TVS intended to do. The styling in short is a mixed bag, although most people prefer market leader like look but others will appreciate the Jupiter for the overall sensible appeal it carries sure-footedly.

What about practicality? Well you get 18 liters of under seat storage, which surprisingly does not fit a full sized helmet. On the other hand, you get two hooks (one down and one up) and the largest leg space in its class (or same as the biggest offering in the market) for keeping and hanging bags near your feet. Practicality is further aided by convenience features which are added by TVS. For instance the pass button which is smartly integrated in the high beam switch. The revised instrument cluster is for the better and much easier to read.

TVS Jupiter Performance Review

The engine and gearbox is the talking point of the Jupiter. When TVS displayed the changes to the 110cc engine at the launch, it took us by surprise and scared us at the same time as the power output was identical to the Wego (8 BHP, 8 Nm) and we feared the enthusiastic nature of the Wego’s motor might disappear. Surprisingly it turns out to be true. The Jupiter may be the quickest scooter in its segment (claimed 0-60 km/hr time of 7.2 seconds) but the energetic nature of the Wego’s powerplant is gone, long gone. However the mill is extremely smooth, refined and noiseless all the way up to 70 km/hr which we experienced on our short test ride. Bumps and road imperfection were dealt in the same manner as the Wego, the telescopic forks work well to give a plaint ride. Handling is extremely positive and the Jupiter is quite fun to ride.

TVS Jupiter First Ride ReviewTVS Jupiter Dynamics Review

What we experienced in our short ride is that the TVS Jupiter offers almost everything you need from a “male oriented scooter”. The Jupiter seems surprisingly good in many ways but like every time we enthusiast have some crying points. Like? The need for more power, more torque and more displacement. However the value for money proposition simply can’t be overlooked. The TVS Jupiter is Rs. 3000/- cheaper than the Honda Activa and you get much more features too. Reliability and quality which TVS has shown through the Wego makes the Jupiter a scooter you simply can’t ignore. What you can ignore though is the market leader once and for all by considering the best alternative built until now and the Jupiter seems to be the one in the 110cc scooter segment.

      Good Reminder Shashank!!
      But very well good enough review from a one time ride experience.
      Needless to put now though, there are other features which Mohit missed. Jupiter is the first bike with such extensive features and all of them v. very useful. I many a times feel if I had this feature, that feature…

      Well, Mohitjee, d’you have any idea how long it will take till delivery after booking in Delhi?
      I was informed that it takes 1 half-2 months. Any Idea of a dealer who could work faster??
      Do suggest.

    TVS is always known for their quality products,they always offer refine engines, quality components, and very good build quality, I will say they are as good as other Japs in same industry, even Bajaj also has raised there stander ed of products, good product with descent refinement, build quality and innovation even new comer Mahindra is also showing very good signs, so we defiantly can say we Indian are not far behind others, TVS has shown this with Jupiter ,Bajaj has shown this with Pulsar bikes.Mahindra with Centero.
    And defiantly Jupiter is an art, we just need to understand it is the quality who always speak not the brand name….

      There are also many other things apart from disk brakes… specially on scooter…
      Also, I have heard Jupiter will soon be getting those, same as Wego… FYI.

    can you suggest me why should I buy Jupiter overlooking Activa Het, and vice-versa.

    Reply
    • Mohit September 29, 2013, 11:04 pm

      Hi Sunil, Jupiter no doubt is far more superior in every single way. when it comes to riding it its far more stable, dynamic and holds the road with authority thanks 12 inch wheels and superior suspension components at both sides. The engine is fuss free smooth unit offering give or take same mileage as the Activa. it comes far more convienent features which are daily need but are absent on the Activa such as as the USB charger, pass light button and pracality of large under seat storage and Jupiter trumps it by offering it cheaper by 3-4k depending on which state, city you are in

        Thanks for putting everything together.

        I took a test drive today and it’s smooth on roads. Front shock is good. Its ₹ 44,200 exshowroom price for delhi… Not sure about the pricing in dehradun (uttaranchal).. Can you help me to get the Ex-showroom price in dehradun for me?

      No scooter gives 60 kmpl untill unless you drive under 60 km/hr all day long which you cant thanks to congested cities and highways. Speeds differs, mileage suffers :)

    Wish they had put in the peppy Wego motor or 125 cc though. The size of it makes me think – 125cc is on its way

    • Mohit September 30, 2013, 4:01 pm

      Pot holes make you feel “on-road” as if off-road hence we can say its stays planted and balanced and there is not skittishness or nervousness like the Activa on poor roads or off road

      Want some third party advice? Get the Honda. It will at least remain in good condition as long as it is maintained and serviced properly. My neighbor had such severe starting problems with her TVS, she dumped it and started using the car to pick up her kids from the bus stop half a km away (This kind of a job should have been perfectly suited to a small scooter). OTOH my 2006 honda still starts on first crank and does whatever is expected if it flawlessly. Sure, I did have some problems in between due to poor qualty service, but I got that fixed locally and it’s been trouble free ever since. I’m not saying Honda makes brilliant scooters or anything, frankly, there really is not much to choose between the products available in the market today. But in terms of ROI, long life or reliable performance, your current choice has the edge over others.

        I also bought TVS Jupiter and experienced starting problem. within four days of delivery, they did full service to rectify the problem. Again after 15 days of service, now they are saying that battery is dead and need to be charged for 8 hours. TVS jupiter battery age is may be 20 days or may be unlucky customer.

And as u said it didn’t.. :( I really liked the ride quality.. N its turning radius is small too.. But the helmet fact is dissapointing! And they are saying it can fit full size helmet!

    Reply
    • Mohit October 2, 2013, 12:36 pm

      Well normal full size helmet does fit but our sporty Ls2, studds with hunched front and rear fail to fit. Normal people should have problem fitting their small full faced helmets

      • Swaleha October 30, 2013, 10:36 pm

        True… I am using the TVS Jupiter it is two weeks old now… My normal helmet fits in it very easily and i guess these sporty helmets wont fit in any other scooter as well…Jupiter gives you lots of space under the seat and also near the leg space area… Should go for it… U guys will love the pilot lamps when riding in the city.. no other scooter offers this!

        Basically, yes! it does look male but a proper color should suit the opposite sex as well with no problems whatsoever.. Activa is a unisex scooter so why not this which very much looks like the Activa in the first place ;)

        Have a look at it in flesh and decide..and anyways there’s always the Wego if you want a TVS scooter.

        I am from vadodara and I have booked TVS Jupiter after it’s test drive and I will take this delivery on this sunday.
        I was searching scooter since last two months and finally, I have selected TVS Jupiter because of It’s looks and features compete with all the available brads in this segments.
        This scooter main advantage is Tubeless tyres with 12″ alloy wheel
        It is suitable for both male and female without any compromise of looks and heandeling.
        Fuel fill up arrangement from backside without hang the seat is unique.
        Telescopic suspension in front wheel with alloy wheel
        And the most important is all above comes with price package on road is Rs. 51900=00
        with 2 years warranty.

        I must say for scooter ” ALL IN ONE ” & THIS IS MADE BY INDIA COMPANY
        You can also visit company website for more details of scooter.feature,looks,specifications etc.

    Mohit, Nice initial report there.

    Isn’t it a bit strange that the TVS guys have not sent the Jupiter to the Bangalore showrooms till now which apparently is few kms from their Hosur factory. With the festival season coming, they will loose out big time if they dont put it up for sale in the southern part of India soon. Not sure why the hurry in launching it in north first. :)
    Another major concern is the on road price which am told will be 57K and translates to around 47 to 48K ex showroom. Common guys why do you want milk Bangalore so much. Its not like we are being served on a platter in terms of facilities.

    Frot shocks seem to be teh biggest draw from me compared to Activa. Experts any news when the new Activa with from telescopic shocks will be launched.

      Muni,
      Fact are surprisingly to us too. TVS says their main market is north when it comes to UNISEX scooters and since rains are approaching in the south chennai and most probably Bangalore launch will follow in November.. wait for south india prices.. they could be a tad cheaper ailing the low cost of transportation and various other taxes also matter.

      Activa telescopic suspension in bound to come in the 2013 festive season or 2014

      Dio is a inferior product in terms of hardware and features both engines on either of these scooter is great but Jupiter feels much more confident to ride over potholes and feels more confident and has best in class features.. like mentioned in the above review!

    i am an artist and a photographer. always in need of serious space to carry my materials and photographic gears. my main concerns are “SPACE, MAINTENANCE, MILEAGE, and COMFORT on long distances.(100km at max) and not ignoring the AFTER-SALES SERVICE “

    • Mohit October 4, 2013, 9:55 pm

      Kunal,
      The things you demanded are there in all these scooters you mentioned but the after sales service in our locality and according various reports we get about Honda are scary in our locality and we have experienced first hand because i am owner of first gen activa and when i was shopping for a second scooter Honda was not on my mind in any single way..which speaks for itself

      if service in our locality is great then why not the Honda’s.. but if u cant resist the convenient feature that Jupiter then the TVS is not a bad option at all.. its there at the top!

      Jupiter does have really comfy seats.. i think the best (full review should confirm that)

        gues’l have to take a spin of the three scooters respectively. i almost zeroed on Jupiter after reading your review because of the suspension system.. bt on asking a few of my friends they mentioned that TVS scooters chassis starts to jitter after a year or so.. and that is something scary on the road to imagine :/

        Talking about performance, well i had a quick solo run on a empty stretch and it was quick of the line in a very linear fashion (not exciting as the Wego) but yes it does feel fast.. infact surprise was with heavy weight champions on the scooter dint lag the performance either.. obviously this happened in mild city traffic, upto 60 km/hr. Like we said it looks promising

      shreeragjee it is false , it cant give 60 km in 7.3 sec. i challenge any body in this forum. if any body says yes i will meet them and prove. so dont be trapped. wait some more time until it is proved

      Gaurav, well there is no doubting.. infact a recent incident.. i mean a chat with a person who owns a Duro in a traffic revealed that he has done 90k + kms on his Duro and seem very proud of his scooter. Problem with Duro is its dated and bulbous look and Mahindra’s service center.. which if fall in your locality and you can live with the looks then why not? its cheaper too!

    Hi,
    Like everyone in this discussion I also wanted to buy a scooter in this Diwali.

    After reading all the reviews of most of scooters I decided to go for Hero Maestro OR TVS Wego. I was confused between these two.. But yesterday only I saw TVS Jupiter in one of the reality show.. “BIGG BOSS 7″ and the winning team got this scooter as gift.. I was impressed with the features of this scooter & looks too.. So now am more confused between these 3 scooters.
    Hero Maestro
    TVS Wego
    TVS Jupiter
    As Jupiter is the latest & very new… therefore there are not much reviews about it, can you tell us by when we will get its full review & which is the best among these 3. Also any idea about Jupiters weight in KG.

        Hi Swapnali,

        As Mohit Said Check your budget 1st. TVS Wego and Jupiter both are comfortable and gives a lot of value.Wego has an unisex appeal where as Jupiter is a Bulky Male look but loaded with features. Wego is already a trusted vehicle in this category and gives a best in class values.

        Never think about Maestro……Its mileage simple sucks…35 to 40km/lt

    We have Pass light in Jupiter. What is the major function of Pass Light???
    Is it good if the wheel size is big? Width of Jupiter is 650 which is less that any scooter, will it make the scooter less spacious? A lady should I go for Jupiter or Ray Z ???

    Reply
    • Mohit October 5, 2013, 3:06 pm

      Hi Pavitra,
      Pass light is mostly found on bikes which is handy when overtaking instead of using a horn for those who roam in their cars with high end music system need to be waken up some how… right? i love numbers and comparing them and so do people use for it comparing… but the fact is every scooter like very human being is different because of the way its built.

      To your surprise TVS claims Jupiter has the highest leg space for storing your bags and baggages in its segment and we can vouch for that its as big as the class leader or certainly a notch above for sure!

      Bigger wheels aids to better dynamics and more confident ride on the roads.. it stays glue and provides confidence to the rider while riding enthusiastically (faster that is, but in a safe way not rash) so braking in return is better and cornering speeds are higher

      Jupiter has short seat height, but Ray is best suited for women because its lowest seat height and scooter sits very low as well. We have been driving the Ray for for many months now and it impress us with good pick up and splendid driving dynamics with a comfortable riding position. Only problem with ray is that it lacks the humungous boot space like other scooters but in every other way its best suited for women and the most polished scooter out there in terms of quality too..
      Infact its best scooter out there for people who ready to sacrifice slightly for under seat storage..All in all Ray Z cannot be ignored if ur a girl.
      As always Test ride of both is highly recommened before purchasing

      Flash/pass light is to tell the other motorist when it’s safe to pass them or safe for you to renter the lane in front of them..It is helpful during highway riding situation.
      Its obviously an advantage feature to have a bigger wheel size. It will helpful during small potholes, u will not feel the jerk. You will get a good ground clearance for it too.
      Jupiter has one of the largest Leg Space and under sit Storage. U dont need to worry about it.
      If you dont prefer this male product then definitely go for TVS Wego. Its Far Ahead of Ray Z.

      Well this is more sophisticated engine then the one in the Wego and Wego returned around 47 in our tests (city) this should go a bit higher or atleast remain the same and highway mileage on aviator is around 52 and since we haven’t reviewed it completely so we dont have Jupiter numbers.. wait for the Review ;)

    Hi Mohit,

    I loved reading the discussion & reviews in this forum in regards to Jupiter.

    Planning to buy a scooter for my wife.. Confused between 2 brands: Activa HET & Jupiter. Request you to please clarify on below:

    (1) Feature-wise Jupiter has a upper hand on all existing scooters, but is TVS Jupiter’s engine great from Honda Activa’s HET?

    (2) What about After-Sales Services? I reside in a Western Suburb in Mumbai (Malad), mechanics & multi-brand showroom owners insists me to go for Honda Activa, saying “spares will be easily available, even in local stores.. but when it comes to TVS, they have to say spares may not be easily available in local store & every time u can’t visit company authorized service center” – Is that truth? I can’t find a reason why they should lie or promote Activa. What do u have to say, things apart is it the common complaint for TVS Scooters / Bikes ?

    (3) Yes, currently I’ve been quoted around 59k includes everything, is it corect. OR you advise me to wait for some time for actual rate to settle down?

    Your replies would be appreciated.

    - Sam

    by seeing all the above discussions , iam little bit confused. first of all nobody clarified that jupiter is metal body like Activa. activa is coming with HET technology surely increased KM/lit up to 52+ km. The after sales service for activa is good. so if we compare jupiter with honda, one should compare with DIO or Activa i if jupitor is fibre body. so please clarify me weather jupitor is metal body or not.. .

    Reply
    • Rahul October 9, 2013, 12:28 pm

      No thing to confuse dear…

      1st of all Activa is not having fully metal body. its 40% metal and 60 % fiber. You will find the same thing in Jupiter. the front panel of Jupiter is fiber one where as the bulky rear end is completely metal. If you want complete metal body scooter, you are having WEGO in this segment. This is the only vehicle having completely metal body.

      Coming to mileage, both scooter will give u more or less same mileage. Wego is coming with CVTI Tech. which is one of the most advanced fuel efficient Tech. It has been proven by their Other Vehicles like Sport or Star city. So i guess no worry about mileage problem. It will deliver around 55 mileage for sure. No scooter will give u complete 60 mileage.

      Coming to service part, everyone knows about Honda’s poor service attitude. Where i can say TVS is not so bad in Service too. Taste some new flesh. Try our own Indian product. Its worthy.

    Don’t belive TVS, they use substandard material and workmanship is poor. Go for Honda scooters. The only problem with them is that you don’t get the parts easily, but atleast they are faithful. I have Wego, and on any day it refuses to start, I have no option but to tow it to service center. I always have a rope in my glove box for pulling this Shit scooter.

      If u go to honda service, the customer is treated as the last priority any ways… u guys decide.

      Keeping a rope in the glove box is a bit overboard, as you cant tow a scooter using a rope, its not a car!!! be real. dont write somrthing for the heck of it…

      Its shameful that people of your age are still favouring the japanese …and of all, the chinese??? China is a sick labour country with aweful labour laws… you should be born there… you can learn their national anthem too if not Indian.
      regarding journalists like Mohit and Faisal giving critics here, they have driven the vehicles which the companies offer for reviews or previews… after riding these, they write what they feel and experience. This is done so the people get a feel as to what the companies are offering.
      Now this is the basics of automobile journalism… you may not know… and if you dont, dont talk.
      If everyone waits, awaiting that some product succeeds, who will buy… and when???
      Now you may say that I am not respecting you for your age, but when elders are wrong, we have to step in. I am still writing with due respect, where, I can blast you off… shame to people like you calling themselves as Indians.

    Hero Maestro and Activa is using Combined breaking technology, which seems to be much better then the TVS Jupiter’s normal braking. Do we have any comparison between the breaking systems. Which one is really better. And does combined breaking system of Maestro/Activa really make a big difference, over Jupiter’s normal breaking system.

    I just enquired the On-road prices in Mumbai directly to their showroom and the difference is hardly 1k – Activa being on the higher side. The ground space is less in Jupiter (50 cms against 53cms) and is like to brush against speed breaker, more often if u are with a pillion rider. No doubt there are added features in Jupiter, but if you go with the cost, I would certainly prefer Activa over Jupiter in terms of buy back value.

    Ya. What is written in test drive review is correct. I took the test drive of Jupiter 2 days back in Bangalore and its extraordinarily good. The vehicle weight is not seen when driving and feels as if handling of a cycle – well balanced. The facilities given (compared to competitive scooter manufacturers) like parking lite, extra bag hook (foldable), full face helmet storage (I checked personally by keeping my helmet in under seat box), 12″ alloy wheels with telescopic front suspension, the gas filled back shock observers, pass light, total safe in locking the handle with encrypted key, tube less Tyre, majestic look, manageable saddle height – all these with competitive rate tag – made me to book the vehicle instantaneously. The delivery period expected is around one month.

But I can, (with all these years experience of two wheeler driving) vouch that TVS Jupiter is the best in its class. Unfortunately, the so called Japanese tech. based scooterette manufacterers in India-who enjoys good will till date, are cheating consumers with low end, out dated scooters with least facilities with higher pricetags. Alas, TVS has made its mind to come out with such a good commuter scooter with more user friendly technology blended with style to justify the value for the price paid by the customer. Let me make it clear that I m in no way connected to TVS. I would certainly share my joy, the day I get my Jupiter with my comments in this forum.

    Dear all,

    Regn. – Rs. 450
    Road tax – 5408
    Stamp fee – 25
    Insurance – 1240
    H.P.Endorsement – 60
    Petrol – 75
    No.writing charges – 550
    Handling charges – 550
    D.F Charges – 30
    Smart card – 300
    S.G – 200
    Basic/Invoice price – 48712
    Total on road price – 57100

    So, the vehicle-upon paying above price- comes with 2 mirrors and 2no. plates. Please note that the amount of initial small quantity of petrol given with vehicle is also collected by the customer.

    The above amounts are collected from an Authorised Dealer of TVS Motor Co. LTD., Bangalore. Hope this would enlighten my fellow purchasers further more.

      Combi-brake is helpful and if you really want to buy a Honda, get the Aviator but no Activa, it has poor suspension.

      Reply
    • Ram November 18, 2013, 2:37 pm

      Dr. Ravi, if you go through carefully, there are more advantageous points on Jupiter. Since, the main reason for purchase of a vehicle is to commute, one has to see the plus points of that vehicle-to be purchased. The Jupiter has got 12″ wheel size compared to that of 10″ of Activa, riding through rough/path hole filled roads will be easy in Jupiter. It has got a telescopic front and gas filled back suspension, against spring/coiled shock observers/suspensions of Activa-which again adds to driving comfort. I feel, you may go for Jupiter, since it has got a few other plus points over Activa/Aviator-which were briefed in my earlier comment in this forum.

        I got my Jupiter “Titanium Gray” delivered on 28.11.13 and the on Road cost at Bangalore is 57,200/- (which includes basic invoice value, RTO+Regn+Insurance+handling charges) with 2 mirrors fixed. The ladies foot rest is not given as O.E. accessory. The vehicle was filled with half a liter of petrol and delivered.

        About the performance, its really marvelous. The engine is super smooth, pick up is good (I have not crossed 40 k.m./hr. speed as it is in break-in-period) and with initial filling of fuel, it gave me the mileage of 46.7/ltre. There is no morning staring problems, as were reported in this blog from some of the users. It started with a single half kick in the morning today.

        In my opinion, this is the best scooterette available in the Indian Market as on date.

    Dear all, you might have read my earlier user review on new Jupiter (“marvellous scooterette”). I am further happy to inform you that my Jupiter, on its 2nd refilling of fuel delivered a solid 50 kmpl. (165 k.m. for 3.3 ltrs. petrol), that too, driving in Bangalore city traffic. Of course, I’m adhering to my ‘not crossing the 40k.m. per hr. speed’. It’s driven by my wife too (medium biilt) who enjoyed the comforts and handling of Jupiter.

    I would again, with proud, say that Jupiter is the most advanced auto scooter available in Indian 2 Wheeler market (as on date) that can fetch you the best value for your money in terms of technology, features, utilities, style, mileage with a smooth driving at a very reasonable price.

(economy mode) in highway for about 160 kms. So, I am sure i would be getting at least 55 kmpl. in city driving. Though I have touched 50 kmphr. speed once/twice, i could not hear the rising of Engine or abnormal sound. It’s as smooth as i felt at 35-40 kmphr. speed.

    Hi all, the Mobile Charger for Jupiter is available in J.C. Road (at Magaji automobiles/or with side by two wheeler spare dealers – on the Road diagonally opp. to Bharat (Talkis) buildings). You have to ask for original TVS Streak/Pep mobile charger and is available at Rs.220/- per piece (female portion-that sits in the place provided beneath Jupiter seat). The male/mobile connecting unit has to be purchased, again at extra cost-may be Rs.150/-. I got it fixed at the place where I booked/got New Jupiter by paying Rs.130/- labour charges. The dealer will cut the given grove and fix this mobile charging unit, without harming/spoiling original wiring system. I still feel, the TVS should provide/made available this extra/optional accessory (both male & female connecting mobile charging unit) with their dealer outlets only, to ensure originality and good performance assurance. Of course, they may charge nominally – say some Rs.300-350.

    Hi I am very much confused between TVS Wego and Jupiter. I like the styling of both but I’m more interested in wego due to its body balance and full metal body. But it has very little leg space. Please suggest if I have made the right choice. I’m 5.9 & my wife is 5.3 we both are going to ride the bike

      Dear Learned Moderators, Please reply to the question of Pankaj ji, since I’m also facing the same issue. Also throw some light on the requirement of a disc brake, if the scooter is to be used at moderate speeds, say 40- 50 km /hour. One of your colleagues stated that the engine of Jupiter is better/refined as compared to Wego, but the dealer say both scooters have the same engine. What is your view?

    Hi,
    My jupiter will be on the road within 2.3 days fro a Trivandrum dealer. People are coming with different opinion with its pros & cons. Little confused and doubt whether I have taken a wrong decision.
    Experienced people may pl come forward with their valuable suggestions/advice pls………….
