Leading Indian two-wheeler and utility vehicle manufacturer TVS Motor Company has announced the launch of the BS-VI Jupiter Classic 110cc scooter, equipped with eco-thrust fuel injection (ET-Fi) technology. The Classic is the first vehicle in the Jupiter series to come with a BS-VI engine. The scooter commands an ex-showroom price of ?67,911 in Delhi.
The BS-VI Jupiter Classic has been launched just a day after TVS introduced the 2020 Apache RTR 160 4V and the 2020 TVS Apache RTR 200 4V with BS-VI motors. The latter vehicles are fitted with the company’s race-tuned fuel injection (RT-Fi) technology. TVS has claimed that the BS-VI Jupiter Classic will offer an enhanced overall performance regarding smoothness, handling, and fuel efficiency.
The TVS BS-VI Jupiter Classic scooter is hauled by the same 110cc motor which produces 8PS maximum power at 7,500rpm and 8.4Nm peak torque at 5,500rpm. The engine is mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) system. The new TVS Classic 110 is also fitted with the company’s patented Econometer with an eco-mode and power-mode driving system. The former returns a better mileage. That two-wheeler is supported by front telescopic forks while independently adjustable shock absorbers are fitted at the back. The BS-VI Jupiter Classic has 130mm standard drum brakes in its Grande, Classic, and Base trims. The ZX model comes in a choice of disc and drum brakes. Other variants of the scooter will be introduced in a phased manner. The BS-VI scooter comes in the new Indi-Blue colour scheme. Other colours include Autumn Brown and Sunlit Ivory.
Additional upgrades to the scooter include a front panel USB charger and a cubby space to hold mobile phones. The scooter also gets a tinted visor.
The BS-IV version of the Jupiter Classic returns a mileage of 62kmpl. TV claims that the BS-VI model is 15 percent more fuel efficient.
