TVS Jupiter vs TVS Jupiter 125: Distinctive Offerings

- Advertisement -

As you may know, the TVS Jupiter can be had from both 110cc and 125cc segments. Regardless of the engine displacement, the Jupiter series is among the bestselling TVS bikes in the country.

In terms of pricing, the base variant of the 110cc TVS Jupiter is significantly cheaper than the Jupiter 125’s base variant. However, the top-most variants of these two scooters have a marginal difference.

Apart from different pricing, these two scooters also have different offerings in terms of features and specifications. Having said that, let’s see how the TVS Jupiter squares off with the Jupiter 125. Let’s read on, then!

Specifications

As far as the specifications are concerned, these two scooters are built using the same type of construction. They both have a high rigidity underbone type. This chassis makes the two-wheeler light, giving it more stability and agility around the corners.

In terms of figures, the 110cc Jupiter’s chassis carries a 109.7cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine, which is tuned to churn out 7.77 bhp at 7500 rpm and 8.8 Nm of peak torque at 5500 rpm. It has a top speed of 78 km/h.

In contrast, the Jupiter 125 is powered by a 124.8cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine, which can pump out 8.04 bhp at 6500 rpm and 10.5 Nm of peak torque at 4500 rpm. Unlike the less-powered Jupiter, this 125cc scooter has a top speed of 95 km/h. You can check out the TVS Jupiter 125 price here.

Both the engines of these scooters are mated to a standard CVT automatic transmission.   

As for fuel efficiency, the Jupiter 110 and Jupiter 125 have more or less the same mileage. For your reference, a vehicle with less power will offer more mileage. That means the TVS Jupiter will have more mileage than its 125cc sibling. The Jupiter’s mileage is rated at 50 km/l, while the Jupiter 125’s mileage is rated at 48 km/l. Please note that these mileage figures are as per the feedback from the owners. In addition, it is worth noting that the real-world mileage can vary with various factors, such as engine and transmission combination, local traffic conditions and individuals’ riding styles.

If you have a strict budget, the 110cc offering should be the pick. Check out the Jupiter price here.

Keeping their engine performances aside, let’s now jump to their suspension setups. The front end of these two scooters has the same suspension, which is the telescopic hydraulic shock absorber. But, they come with different rear suspension setups. At the rear end of the Jupiter, you would get a three-step adjustable suspension with a coil spring and hydraulic dampers. On the other hand, the Jupiter 125 has a superior rear suspension to its 110cc sibling. That said, it has a monotube inverted gas-filled shock absorber with a three-step adjustable suspension. Considering the TVS Jupiter 125 price, it has a good offering, as far as specifications are concerned.

With the adjustable suspension, the rider can manually tune the suspension either to a soft side or a stiff side, depending on the road condition. Moreover, it is worth mentioning that these indigenous scooters are engineered by keeping the conditions of Indian tarmacs in mind. That said, they can go through the bumps from potholes and absorb the undulations with ease. So, in other words, these commuting two-wheelers shouldn’t let you lament the ride quality they have on offer. However, it is always recommended to take a test drive/ride of a vehicle you are considering so that you can get a better understanding of the actual driveability or rideability.

The braking duties on these two scooters have standard all-drum brakes and optional disc-drum brakes. That depends on the variant chosen. For added safety, both have a TVS-developed synchronised braking system (SBT). Please note that the combined braking system (CBS) is the same as the SBT. Its function is to provide traction to both wheels, which makes the two-wheeler more stable, especially at high-speed cornerings. Plus it also helps in giving extra traction on wet road conditions. Last, but not least, it also prevents the two-wheeler from making a stoppie or skidding during emergency brakings. Had this braking system worked with dual-disc brakes, it would have been even better.

Apart from that, both the Jupiters have the same tyre profile at the front and rear, rated at 90/90 R12. Both have tubeless tyres.

Let’s now jump to the features.

Features

As far as the features go, the topmost variant of the Jupiter 110 is more feature-loaded than the Jupiter 125. Yes, you read that right. Wait till you read it.

Let’s begin with its exclusive offerings. The only thing that the Jupiter 125 lacks is the fully digital instrument cluster, which is there on the 110cc Jupiter. Moving on, the Jupiter 125’s exclusive features include a digital fuel gauge, a side-stand alarm, a low battery indicator, a clock, and LED DRLs. Further, it has LED turn signals, a killswitch, and intelligent mileage indicators.

Now, in contrast, the top-most variant of Jupiter 110 offers connected bike technology, a unique pass light switch, a malfunction indicator lamp, a navigation assist, SMS/call alerts, and voice assist. Further, it has a pillion backrest which is surprisingly not there on the Jupiter 125. It also offers kick and electric start and a fully digital touchscreen instrument cluster.
