Expect the upcoming model to get a revised front fascia, additional features, and an updated BS-VI compliant engine
TVS Motor Company introduced the Jupiter in India back in the year 2013 and unfortunately, the scooter hasn’t received any major update since then. However, the Chennai based two-wheeler manufacturer is working on the facelift Jupiter model for quite some time now. IAB has released a digital rendering of the soon to be launched Jupiter facelift model and it actually looks quite practical and premium from every angle.
The 2020 TVS Jupiter facelift will most probably carry forward the same typical Indian family scooter silhouette but it will receive some major revision towards its front apron. Expect the facelifted Jupiter to get a redesigned turn indicator positioned on the front apron.
The front headlamp will most probably also feature an all LED unit just like its rival the Honda Activa 5G (for your information TVS provide a full LED headlamp with the Jupiter Grande variant already). Besides the new headlamp setup and redesigned turn indicators expect the facelifted Jupiter to also feature some chrome highlights on the front apron, fenders and also on the rear view mirrors.
Apart from all these major changes, the updated scooter will also receive a revised instrument cluster with a new digital screen. The digital screen will display some vital information like fuel gauge, odometer, and a clock. The upcoming scooter will still use the same telescopic forks at the front and a 3-step adjustable gas-charged monoshock at the rear for its suspension setup.
It will also use the same 130mm drum brakes for both its front and rear. However, Jupiter also gets an optional front disc brake as well. The updated scooter will also be powered by the same 109.7cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder, OHC engine. This unit currently produces about 8 bhp of peak power at 7,500 rpm and 8 Nm of peak torque at 5,500 rpm. The engine is paired with a CVT gearbox.
For those of you who are not aware, the BS-VI compliant unit will feature fuel injection system that will help improve fuel economy and throttle response. Expect the updated TVS Jupiter to be priced in between INR 55,000-65,000 (ex-showroom) when it finally goes on sale next year.
