TVS Jupiter is the company’s best-selling scooter, but till now it used to come in the 110 cc segment. In such a situation, the question was, when the entire market is rapidly moving towards the 125 cc segment, then where is TVS Jupiter.

However, how much these changes fit in your budget, today we are going to tell you in our review. So let’s have a look…

From the front, it will look very similar to the Honda Activa 125 (Honda Activa 125). The fiber body has been given upfront, whereas, metal has been given at the bottom. No significant changes have been made at the rear. Bulb light has been given instead of LED in its rear lamp and turn indicators. That is, the company has paid a lot of attention to safety and cost-cutting. The metal body was given to the impact parts. The rest, plastic body has been given at all places. Apart from this, saving has been done by giving bulb light instead of LED.
