TVS Motor Company has announced the launch of the Bharat Stage VI (BS6) compliant TVS Jupiter 110 cc scooter in India. Equipped with ET-Fi (Ecothrust Fuel injection) technology, the TVS Jupiter Classic ET-Fi is the first in the Jupiter portfolio to become BS6 compliant and it has been launched at ₹ 67,911 (ex-showroom Delhi). The BS6 TVS Jupiter has gone on sale just a day after the launch of the 2020 TVS Apache RTR 200 4V and Apache RTR 160 4V BS6 models, which, on the other hand, come with the company's new RT-Fi (Race Tuned Fuel injection) technology. TVS claims that with the new ET-Fi technology, the BS6 Jupiter 110 cc scooter will now come with "enhanced overall performance across driveability, smoothness, and fuel economy".
Commenting on this launch, Aniruddha Haldar, Vice President Marketing - Commuter Motorcycles, Scooters & Corporate Brand, TVS Motor Company, said, "TVS Motor Company has always delivered consumer delight. We have taken the opportunity of changeover to BS-VI, and are launching two Fi Technology platforms, RT-Fi and ET-Fi. With ET-Fi (Eco Thrust Fuel injection) focused on the Indian commuter, TVS Jupiter Classic ET-Fi delivers enhanced overall performance across driveability, smoothness, and fuel economy. Staying true to our promise of "Zyada ka Fayda" TVS Jupiter Classic ET-Fi comes with a convenient front mobile phone cubby, USB charger and a new tinted visor. I am confident that our customers will continue to repose their faith in TVS Jupiter in the years to come."
