    The TVS Motor Company already has a strong presence in the scooter segment, with its Scooty Pep Plus, Streak and Wego seeing success over the years. Adding to their scooter portfolio, TVS has just rolled out the Jupiter, aimed straight at Honda’s bestselling Activa, which it will take head-on this festive season. TVS has toiled hard to give the Jupiter a raft of first-in-class features.

    TVS’s Jupiter is a smart urban automatic scooter with sharp styling. The new scooter shows off angular body panels, its front apron encasing the turn indicators along with an air vent. The Jupiter headlight is equipped with pilot lamps, while its bold analogue instruments bay comprises of a speedometer, fuel-gauge and economy/ power riding mode indicator. As expected, switchgear is top-quality, and includes a handy pass-light flasher that is cleverly integrated with the high and low beam switch. The Jupiter’s palm grips feel soft and comfy, and there’s a rear brake-locking clamp. The Jupiter offers convenience hooks under the handlebar and rider seat, these tucking away with a neat flush fit withing the scooter body when not used. Contrary to most scooters, the Jupiter locates its fuel-filler lid at the back of the scooter, just above the tail-light for convenient tank ups. The Jupiter tail looks stylish, and comprises sharply styled clear lens indicators on either sides of its main brake warning light. Neatly executed 5-spoke alloys wheels are finished in black, blending well with the scooter’s overall design philosophy, which is simple, yet neatly finished with a modern touch. Attention to detail is really good on the new TVS scooter.
