After riding the TVS Jupiter 125 on the track a few months ago, we finally got the chance to test it in the real world. You can read all about it in the expert review section or watch the full review on our YouTube channel. Until then, here’s a detailed image gallery of the Jupiter 125 from our review.
The Jupiter 125 is not TVS’s first 125cc scooter. Only, it’s the first family-oriented. Unlike the Ntorq 125, which focuses purely on performance, the Jupiter 125 is all about functionality and comfort.
It has styling similar to the Jupiter 110, but with tweaks to set it apart. The quality of the components is good, although we thought the assembly could be better.
As for comfort, the TVS Jupiter 125 comes with a large seat that can easily accommodate two large people. In addition, the seat is well cushioned and feels that way even after a few hours of driving.
To increase the comfort level, TVS offers a three-step adjustable rear suspension that can be adjusted for preload with your thumb. Nevertheless, the Jupiter offers decent ride quality over small undulations and bumps.
Now, for convenience, the TVS Jupiter 125 has some really useful features. There is an external fuel cap on the front apron – a first in its class. This eliminates the need to get off the scooter or even turn around to open the lid. You also get a cubby hole in the front. But the highlight is the under-seat storage – a whole 33 liters of it, making it the largest in any scooter in India. The scooter also has an LCD instrument panel, although it does not have Bluetooth connectivity.
The TVS Jupiter 125 is powered by a 125cc, air-cooled engine that produces 8 horsepower and 10.5 Nm of peak torque. These numbers may not lead the way in the segment, but in the real world the scooter feels lively and usable. The engine is also economical and offers up to 50 kmpl.
As for pricing, the base model of the Jupiter 125 is pegged at Rs 74,425 (ex-showroom, Delhi), which is identical to the corresponding variant of the Suzuki Access 125 and Rs 1,000 more than the Honda Activa 125.
