TVS Jupiter Grande gets Bluetooth connectivity in the top variant
TVS has once again launched the premium Jupiter Grande variant of its popular 110cc scooter. Jupiter Grande is available with front disc brake with SBT (TVS’ CBS). The base variant is priced at Rs 59,900 whereas the top variant with Bluetooth connectivity is priced at Rs 62,346. The prices mentioned here as ex-showroom Delhi.
The top model is Rs 8,800 more expensive than the standard Jupiter model and Rs 2,400 more than the Grande disc. Scooter gets a variety of changes cosmetically as there are no changes made to the engine.
TVS Jupiter Grande gets light blue color option only which is paired to the beige interior panels. You can see major changes in the instrument cluster as the digital display gets Bluetooth connectivity. Through the connectivity feature, you can see the calls, messages, as well as high-speed alert on the display. There is a dedicated mobile app for the same which is TVS Connect. This app is available for both Android and iOS platform.
Powering the Jupiter Grande is the same 110cc engine which does the duty on regular Jupiter models. This powerplant offers 8bhp and 8.4Nm twisting force which is pretty much same as that of other 110cc engines. The performance of this particular engine is quite responsive as you need it for city commuting.
Engine is fed by a carburetor, hence the scooter is still in BS4 disguise. The company did the right thing to avoid introducing the BS6 variant as it would have increased the price and sales in the festive season could be affected.
TVS says that they will launch the BS6 engine on their bikes and scooters only in the year 2020 before the BS6 norms kicks in. However, we think that the company should start selling BS6 models by January 2020 to avoid stacking up the stock of BS4 models.
