Find out which scooter tops the list as we compare both the TVS Jupiter Grande vs Jupiter Classic side by side
The Indian scooter market is one biggest markets in the world. As a matter of fact Honda sells more scooters in India than any other parts of the world. The Indian scooter manufacturers are trying hard to give something new every day to the customers in order to stay ahead of their rivals.
TVS recently launched a new variant of their popular scooter Jupiter and named it Jupiter Grande. This scooter not only rivals some other 110 cc scooters of its segment but also against the Jupiter Classic as well which was launched in August 2017. We have compared both the scooters in terms of their styling, engine, fuel efficiency and pricing in this comparison review, so that you do not have any trouble while choosing the right variant for yourself.
TVS Jupiter Grande Vs TVS Jupiter Classic Styling
Both the Jupiter Grande and the Jupiter Classic are two different variants of the same scooter but they look slightly different than each other in terms of their appearance. The Jupiter Grande gets all the modern touches to it including a new LED headlamp with position lamps. With the new semi-digital instrument cluster that replaces the old unit, it gets an eco meter as well now which helps in achieving higher fuel efficiency (based on the throttle input).
The scooter also gets segment first diamond cut alloy wheels which are unique and is limited to this variant only. Lastly, the Jupiter Grande has also received a cross-stitched maroon seat as well which adds a premium feel to the variant.
The Jupiter Classic, which was launched almost a year ago, on the other hand, gets an exclusive Sunlit Ivory body colour, Classic Edition decals on the body, full chrome mirrors which brings back the retro feel to the scooter. A small windscreen towards the front, which definitely helps in deflecting some wind and an additional backrest for the comfort of the pillion rider. Lastly, the Jupiter Classic features a smart USB charger and a dual tone seat.
Engine and fuel efficiency
Both the Jupiter Grande and the Jupiter Classic are powered by the same 109 cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine which has been tuned to produce 8 bhp of peak power at 7500 rpm and 8 Nm of peak torque at 5500 rpm. The engine is paired to a CVT gearbox. As far as the fuel efficiency figures are concerned the TVS Jupiter promises to offer around 60-63 km to a litre.

TVS Jupiter Grande Vs TVS Jupiter Classic Verdict:
If we compare both the scooter in terms of their styling, then the Jupiter Grande looks more updated and also gets plenty of new features like an all-LED headlamp, semi-digital instrument cluster, premium looking seats etc. The Classic edition, on the other hand, will attract your attention if you love retro scooters. There are lots of chrome bits used all over the body, while TVS has also added a windshield and a backrest for more practicality which also helps give in premium and classy feel.
As far as their engine is concerned both the scooter gets the same 109 cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine which not only produces the same amount of power and torque figures but also returns identical fuel efficiency figures as well. However, we do feel that the addition of the new eco meter will help extract slightly more fuel efficiency figures from the Grande variant.
Both of them are the same scooters under two different skins. The Grande Edition offers slightly more updated features like all-LED headlamps, semi-digital instrument cluster and an optional disc brake for better stopping power which brings it on par with its biggest rival the Honda Activa 5G. The Classic Edition, on the other hand, focus more on style rather than features and thus we prefer the former despite costing slightly higher.
