TVS Motor has just launched the Jupiter 125 in India at the price of Rs 73,400 (ex-Delhi). At this pricing the new Jupiter 125 undercuts its highest specced 125cc commuter scooter rivals, the Honda Activa 125 Disc (Rs 80,325), and the Suzuki Access 125 Disc (Rs 77,100) by Rs 6,925 and Rs 3,700 respectively.

The TVS Jupiter 125 is an all-new scooter, TVS simply hasn't given the old Jupiter 110cc a heart transplant from the 125cc TVS Ntorq range of scooters, nor has it just slapped on some new panels and called it a new scooter. While the Ntorq range is said to be targeted at the youth, with the new Jupiter 125 the company wants to attract a more mature audience, those who seek a good 125cc family scooter.

The Jupiter 125 an all-new scooter right from its design, to its engine and even its chassis. It sports a very sober and classy design with all of its shapely metal body panels with some chrome inserts. The new TVS gets a MFR LED headlamp and some neat DRLs on its apron while the tail-lamp unit comprises a bulb with LED light guide. The instrumentation layout comprises an analogue speedometer on the left side while a small digital screen on the left reads out odometer and trip readings, time, fuel level and average fuel economy. Surprisingly, the new TVS misses out on Bluetooth connectivity, a feature that the older 110cc Jupiter comes with, but gets a USB charging port along with a small 2-litre storage pocket under the right side of the handlebar. The ignition slot also functions to open the under-seat storage area and the fuel filler cap. The scooter also comes with a side stand engine inhibitor which serves as a welcomed safety measure.

TVS has planted a new 124.8cc engine into the Jupiter 125, which is made up of light-weight materials and low-friction tech. The new motor produces a max power output of 8.3PS at 6,000rpm and a max torque of 10.5Nm at 4,500rpm - which is at par with its segment rivals. The new Jupiter also gets some start-stop tech in a bit to reduce the level of fuel consumption.

USPs of the new Jupiter 125 include the seat which at 790mm is the longest seat in its segment, and the 32-litres of underseat storage space which again, is more than what it's direct rivals have on offer. This is all down to the relocation of the fuel tank, which has moved from its conventional location under the seat, to under the footboard. The fuel filler lid has also been moved to the front of the scooter for added convenience.

The high rigidity underbone chassis is all new to and promises added handling agility and composure over Indian roads. Wheelbase of the new scoot remains the same as the older, smaller capacity TVS Jupiter, while ground clearance is a good 163mm. The 109kg Jupiter 125 gets a telescopic fork up front and a monotube inverted gas shock with a 3-step adjustable spring at the rear. For stopping power, the Jupiter 125 employs a 220mm disc up front that combines with the 130mm drum at the back to bring this scooter to a halt.
