jupiter vs activa base1

The Honda Activa 6G is the best-selling scooter in the Indian market, and TVS has priced the new entry-level variant of the Jupiter evenly with the Honda scooter

In a bid to boost sales during this festive season, TVS Motor Company recently launched a new base variant for its most popular scooter in the country, the Jupiter. While the base variant of the scooter misses out on a host of features that the top-end Classic trim comes with, it will certainly help attract a wider group of buyers to the Jupiter nameplate.

Just like the other variants of the TVS Jupiter, the new base variant will also have to go up against the highest-selling scooter in the country, i.e. the Honda Activa 6G. Here is a detailed specifications comparison between the two scooters to let you know how the new entry-level variant fares against the current best-selling scooter –


The TVS Jupiter measures 1834 mm in length, 678 mm in width, stands 1286 mm tall, has a 1275 mm long wheelbase and has a 150 mm ground clearance. On the other hand, the Honda Activa 6G has a length of 1833 mm, a width of 697 mm, a height of 1156 mm, a 1260 mm long wheelbase and 171 mm of ground clearance.

As of now, the new entry-level variant of the TVS Jupiter has been priced at Rs 62,577. On the other hand, the entry-level Honda Activa 6G Std variant is currently retailed at Rs 65,892 (both prices, ex-showroom Delhi).

Comparison Verdict

The Honda Activa 6G is the best-selling scooter in the Indian market, and its popularity only seems to grow with time. However, the introduction of the new entry-level variant will certainly help TVS woo some Activa buyers, since the two scooters are so evenly priced now.

Both the scooters come with a similar set of features and while the Jupiter has a slight advantage of size, the Activa has more ground clearance. There’s not much to set apart the powertrains on both the Jupiter and Activa 6G either.
