TVS Jupiter 125 to sport front disc brake and fuel injection system; will compete with Suzuki Access and Honda Activa 125
As we have already reported TVS Motor Company is working on a 125 cc scooter, finally a test mule of the upcoming Jupiter 125 has been spotted. Despite camouflaged appearance its front disc brake is visible. Apart from that, the scooter also comes with electronic fuel injection technology ditching the carburetor.
The Hosur-based company is expected to launch the 125 cc Jupiter model in the country within a couple of months, possibly during festive season this year. Upon arrival, it will lock horns with tough and popular rivals like Honda Activa 125 and Suzuki Access. Jupiter is already an established name in the domestic scooter market and the badge will also help the upcoming 125 cc model.
The test mule has been spotted with heavy camouflage, but the outline of the scooter can be figured out without any difficulty. It will retain similar design language as the current Jupiter 110 cc model. There will be a large headlamp with AHO, front cowl mounted turn indicator positioned vertically. The instrument cluster will come incorporating both analog dials and digital display.
The footboard will offer generous space and comfort to the rider along with a well cushioned seat. The rear passenger too will be offered comfortable journey experience with the seat and a grab rail for convenience. There will be a wide and large prominent taillight. Speaking about the powertrain, TVS is going to be the first two-wheeler manufacturer in the country to introduce fuel injection technology to the 125 cc scooter segment.
The 125 cc single-cylinder, air-cooled, fuel-injected engine will surely be capable of delivering generous amount of power and torque output along with impressive fuel efficiency. Also, it is expected to offer smoother throttle response compared to the current 110 cc Jupiter. It runs on alloy wheels with front wheel sporting a disc brake. Expect the upcoming scooter to be priced very competitive against its rivals.
