The TVS Jupiter was always sensible and quirky, by nature. Not only was it spacious with a wide and long floorboard, but its practicality also extends with the segments first external filler cap. Its simple and non-sophisticated design is to everyones liking, and the seating position is perfectly suited for rides in the city. With a cheaper price tag, Jupiter comes across as a much better alternative than the Activa 6G. To complete that competition, now TVS offers Jupiter with a 125 cc engine, a proper rival to the Activa 125. Having said this, check out this detailed TVS Jupiter vs TVS Jupiter 125 comparison to find out all the details.
Design-wise, the new Jupiter gets styling upgrades in the form of chrome embellishments, a new LED headlight and an LED rear light unit. Just like the 110 cc Jupiter, the 125 also gets a simple design with minimal lines on the front apron and side panels. But the best part is, TVS has made the new Jupiter 125 more spacious, for its seat is now longer than the Jupiter 110 by 65 mm.
However, one of the biggest improvements has to come with the storage capacity. The Jupiter 125 boasts 32-litre boot space under the seat, compared to Jupiter 110s 21-litre boot space. This has been possible cause the 5-litre fuel tank is now placed inside the floorboard. Aside from that, the fuel filler cap is conveniently placed outside behind the front apron, unlike the Jupiter 110, which has the same placed at the rear. This neat design also makes Jupiter one of the most practically designed scooters.
