TVS Jupiter Grande 5G launched – Gets LED, disc brake, machined alloys (Honda Activa rival)
Available since 2013, the 110cc TVS Jupiter will now be available in its newest Grande edition avatar.
TVS Jupiter is the second best selling scooter on offer in India. But, its sales are no where near that of Honda Activa, which is the best selling scooter of India. In August, TVS Jupiter sales were at 79,223 units while that of Honda Activa were at 3,10,851 units – almost 4 times that of Jupiter.
In order to boost sales of Jupiter, TVS has launched a new edition of Jupiter, called Grande. 2018 TVS Jupiter Grande has arrived at dealerships across India. It comes with interesting new features, and a new colour.
The festive season offering includes a range of changes. A new digital analogue instrument console features an econometer. With plenty of chrome bits on the sides and fender, and a new white LED headlight set up, new Jupiter Grande 5G series has arrived at dealerships in a new Starlight Blue colour. Bookings are open at Rs 5,000 advance payment.
The blue is matched with beige panels. Identifiable with special Grande badging changes, front LED headlamp setup comes with a position lamp centrally below it. Contrast and appeal is included through an edition specific criss-cross stitched maroon seat. Rear (pillion) handle (grab bar) is in silver, and there’s sleek chrome highlights on the mirrors. There’s most likely a mobile charger setup in the under seat storage space.
While the models arriving at dealerships reveal a front drum brake, there is a disc brake Grande edition option also on offer (hat tip to EWNews). Visible changes on the disc brake Jupiter Grande edition include machined alloy wheels, body coloured pillion handle, and adjustable shocks.
With power from the in use 109.7 cc single cylinder petrol engine, the two wheeler returns max power of 8 bhp, and 8 Nm of torque via CVT transmission. A front telescopic fork and gas charged rear mono-shock complete the suspension setup. Rear suspension is adjustable. Expect 2018 TVS Jupiter Grande Edition at a premium over it’s current retail price – Rs 53,544 ex-sh, Bombay. Take a look at all the features in the image gallery below.
