Honda Activa 3G vs TVS Jupiter – Price

Honda has never been seen pricing its product ultra-competitively. And the Activa 3G is no different. Another reason why Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India can charge a slight premium is due to the high demand for the Activa. The Honda Activa 3G has a sticker price of INR 50,048 (ex-showroom, New Delhi). In comparison, the TVS Jupiter costs slightly lesser and has an ex-showroom price of INR 49,034. The fully loaded Jupiter, however, commands a premium over even the Activa 3G. It has been priced at INR 51,057. However, this slight premium for the Jupiter ZX is justified by a longer list of features. You can read more about the features in the next section of our Honda Activa 3G vs TVS Jupiter comparison here.

Honda Activa 3G vs TVS Jupiter – Design

As far as scooters in India are concerned, the Honda Activa 3G and the TVS Jupiter are probably two of the smartest looking scooters out there. The Activa has become a familiar face now and even though the updated Activa 3G got a few changes, they were barely noticeable. The basic difference between the front end of the two scooters is the headlamp cluster. The Activa 3G gets indicators flanking the headlamp unit while the Jupiter’s indicators are placed below with the headlamp unit mounted at the top. The Jupiter’s tail lamps are more squarish compared to those of the Activa’s, a theme which can be easily spotted in the overall design of the two scooters. In profile, both scooters look very similar to each other. We feel the Jupiter looks slightly more youthful and aggressive thanks to black alloy wheels and matte finish paint schemes.

Honda Activa 3G vs TVS Jupiter Comparison – Verdict

The TVS Jupiter is priced at INR Rs. 49,034 (ex-showroom, New Delhi) and the Honda Activa 3G is priced at INR Rs. 50,048 (ex-showroom, New Delhi). The Honda Activa costs about INR 2,000 more (on-road pricing) than the TVS Jupiter and yet it is a little short on features. It also isn’t as peppy or confident in aggressive cornering. All this, in our view, makes the TVS Jupiter the better choice amongst the two.

  • Design – The black alloy wheels and matte finish paint schemes lend the TVS Jupiter a more sporty look than the Honda Activa 3G.
  • Specifications – There isn’t any real difference between the two. Most buyers will find both scooters satisfactory in terms of power and mileage.
  • Price – There is very little that sets the two apart in terms of pricing.

[box type=”success” ]The TVS Jupiter is cheaper and more feature-rich than the Honda Activa 3G and therefore, is the scooter to buy.[/box]

Still we need more features like (1)side stand indicator (2)Dikki light (3)Dual front braking system (4)Radium magnetic locking system,(5)Trip mitre (6)Seat adjustment system. Please replay me immediately if possible.

  3. I was visited the authorized show room of TVS (KTL) and Honda (MCS) at Kanpur Uttar Pradesh . Then i was going to verify the price from the comparison and came to know that price of jupiter should less price than activa 3G. But as per information provided by KTL peoples that show room price of Jupiter is Rs/-53170.00 and Activa 3G at MCS is Rs 50413.00 .
    You are requested to clarify the reason for the differences.
    thank you.

  4. The brand does matter. Spending 3k more for a brand named Honda is an obvious thing and anyone will be ready to do that. Afterall activa is a scooter that will last for decades and not Jupiter for sure.

  5. Activa is loosing its customers now- a- days because young audience doesn’t wants to stay with same scooter ride with no changes in looks and when they have options for scooters with better and new looks they would definitely go with new options at a certain point.. Still Honda as a brand is enough to give tough competition..

  6. I am confused which of the two to buy, activa3g or Jupiter.

    Pl advice.

    I am not looking for resale value but need maintenance free and sturdy bike.

    Positive Comments shall be highly appreciated.

  13. I want to buy a scooty……….but which one is better option jupiter or activa 3g.
    Plz sugest me as soon as posible.
    I want to buy it on 15th of this month. so you are requested to reply before 11th May, if it is possible.

  14. I own Jupiter red. It’s advantages: 12″ wheels, front advance telescopic suspension and rear GAS filled suspension, distinct look as compared to others, good acceleration, low fuel indicator, external fuel cap, etc etc.

    Red looks amazing. Especially, Jupiter is distinct from side and back; its gorgeous. I often find people drooling over my Jupiter.

    The size looks bigger, visually. Hence, plus for men.

    PERSONALLY, to me activa looks like “just another scooter”. Larger tyres on Jupiter is a seller for me, which also adds stability. Plus, the black stylish spokes and overall black finishing on engines give it a premium looks. I also had thoughts about fascino, however it looked toy to me.

    And yes I paid INR: 102,000/= for it in Nepal. M happy with my buy. 🙂

  15. As per all comments, I suggest all of you Jupiter is more sporty look, good boot space , mobile charger, alloy wheel and best its color combination and also average is also good compare to Activa 3G. TVS Jupiter is Good performance, cheap price, reliable and new stylish scooter. I like TVS Jupiter smooth and stylish.

  16. Guys please suggest me .I need scooter asap within this coming week and I am confused to decide between two choices 1) Acitva 3G 2) Jupiter which one has best maintenance and look too .

  17. In terms of maintenance, Activa is slightly better. Looks are personal choice so it is up to you to decide as per which scooter’s design appeals more to you.

    Regards

  18. Please suggest me which one is better Active 3G or TVS Jupiter as compared to durability and maintenance.
    Please suggest as soon as possible.

  19. When you compare the two – activa 3G – has got a bigger gain than Jupiter. I have not seen many vehicles of the Jupiter on the road here in Bangalore. The price variation of the two vehicles does not matter much. There are only a few important points that any buyer would like to get from the two wheeler – (1) A good scooter of quality forget about the colour – the look may play an important role in any vehicle. (2) We need more features like (2a)side stand indicator (2b)Dikki light (2c)Dual front braking system – The brake system needs a lot of improvement – Going by the roads you often tend to brake the vehicle every 4-5 minutes – if that is the case this segment needs a lot of improvement. (2d)Radium magnetic locking system,(2e)Trip mitre (2f)Seat adjustment (2g) The head light needs to be very powerful – going by the Indian roads, particular in Bangalore – we cant know when we spot a pot hole – this will be dangerous to the vehicle & its rider. (3) The Side Stand the Kick Start clash very close to each other – & this needs to be rectified. (4) Almost all scooter companies in India promise a +50 Mile age to a litre of petrol – This is not correct – I have not seen/heard anybody who has got a new scooter stating that he/she has got a +50 Mileage to a litre of petrol. Why don’t you guys correct this first before stating the obvious. Well the Activa is very easy to clean when compared to the Jupiter – we can remove everything & clean – but the Jupiter this cannot be done. We need to know this for the future.

    Thats It.

  20. Dear all,

    It is vary urgent, please suggest me the correct scooter to buy for handicapped person between Honda Activa 3G or TVS Jupitor ZX.
    These scooters will be fitted with side attachments.
    which one would be best for a person with physical ailment.
    I am waiting for your reply

    Thanks
    Dhruva

    7. Trip mitre 8. Seat adjustment

    PLEASE DON’T BUY ACTIVA 3G

  26. I am confused to which bike to buy activa 3g or Jupiter. Is any body guide me with an experience and technical difference between both?

  27. I have Jupiter and the sole reason I selected jupiter over activa is the ride and control, activa feels too unstable even at low speed. Jupiter with it’s large tires and better suspension feels stable and confidence inspiring, ofcourse you cannot expect bike like control but over the time you adapt. TVS in general produce quality product but the service is a bit letdown. Honda being Honda begs a good resale as compare to TVS. engine of activa is slightly refined as compare to any other scooter available in market. Activa is least featured scooter as compared to any other brand available. if you want to stick to the Honda brand than avaiator is better choice but at a premium. Jupiter is best value for money but at a lower resale, but if you intend to keep the scooter for 5-6 years resale will be more or less same for all brands.

  28. I have booked juipter million R, I have shown many vehicle of jupiter on the road in Baroda. I liked vehicle of jupiter million R
