TVS Jupiter Grande was launched a couple of months back as the top-spec variant with new features. Now, reports suggest that it has been discontinued.
TVS Jupiter Grande has been discontinued in India, primarily because it was available for a limited period. It came with a couple of segment first features, which gave it an extra edge over its prime rivals – Honda Activa and Suzuki Access 125.
The Grande Edition came with features such as diamond-cut alloy wheels, LED headlamps, a semi-digital instrument console and an adjustable monoshock at the back.
Also, this variant was priced too high, which actually put it in the same league where TVS Ntorq was already present. The discontinued variant carried at sticker price of Rs 59,648 (Ex-showroom Delhi).
However, a good news. The ZX variant is now equipped with features of TVS Jupiter Grande. The ZX disc variant goes for Rs 58,645 and the drum variant for Rs 56,093 (ex-showroom). The disc variant is cheaper than Grande Disc by Rs 1,000.
It continues with the same 109.7cc engine, that produces 7.9 BHP at 7,500 RPM and 8 Nm at 5,500 RPM. The engine comes mated to a CVT gearbox. The engine is still BS-4 compliant.
The features carried over to ZX Disc variant include LED headlights, the instrument console and the adjustable rear monoshock. It misses out on the diamond cut alloy wheels and some minor elements as well.
Braking is handled 130mm drum brakes at both the ends with the option of a 220mm disc at the front. Synchronized Braking System (SBT) comes as standard fitment.
At this price, it is still a bit pricy and around Rs 1,000 dearer than the Ntorq 125. The latter offers Bluetooth connectivity, GPS navigation, call and message alert and better sporty looks. Just for a thousand bucks more, it sounds like a good deal.
TVS Jupiter rivals against the likes of Honda Activa, Access 125, Hero Destini 125 and Yamaha Fascino, all priced between Rs 55,000 to Rs 60,000.
