We have an interesting piece of news for ‘Scooterholics’ out there! Upon a quick visit at Novel TVS Motors showroom in Mangalore, we stumbled upon a new TVS Jupiter ‘MillionR Edition’ (Disc brake) variant that is likely to be introduced soon.
The glossy purple TVS Jupiter displayed outside the showroom caught our attention! At first glance the purple Jupiter pictured above looked just like a regular Jupiter with a new paint shade, what usually TVS does to keep its model fresh! But when examined closely, we found that it gets a much-talked front disc brake option. It further sports a ‘MillionR Edition’ badge on the front apron and side panels.
The front 220 mm disc brake will offer more braking power than the 130 mm drum brakes found on the current ones. However, the Jupiter MillionR Edition snapped here puts an end to the rumors about the addition of the fuel-injection system in the new model. And speaking to sales person, he said that the disc brake model will be priced Rs 2,000 higher than the zx variant, which we feel is well worth the premium.
Like the Jupiter ZX, the Jupiter MillionR Edition too features new body paint (glossy purple) with graphics, Dura Cool seats and beige floorboard. Additionally gets chrome embellishment on the side panels and wing mirrors. As on the Wego (Disc Brake), this too gets a tiny window on the housing headlamp rear for inspecting the brake fluid-level.
Mechanically, there are no changes to this scooter and continues to be powered by the same 110cc, single-cylinder engine that produces 8 BHP at 7500 RPM and 8 Nm of torque at 5,500 RPM, paired to a CVT transmission. It claims to deliver an excellent acceleration of 0-60 in just 11.2 seconds and return a fuel economy of up to 62 KMPL. One can conveniently choose from ECO mode and POWER mode which as the name suggests, helps in extracting maximum efficiency and performance respectively.
Feature-wise, the on-board Jupiter features include twin pilot lamps, LED tail lamp, 3D logos, stainless steel muffler cover, easy accessible kick and electric start, pass-by switch, key shutter lock, low fuel indicator, dual-side handle lock, parking brake, external fuel fill, retractable bag hooks, mobile charger and E-Z centre stand. Jupiter also comes with a telescopic suspension in the front and gas filled suspension at the rear.
