  • The TVS Jupiter 125 ticks all the right boxes for convenience & comfort
  • The TVS Jupiter gets a new frame & engine but with a conservative design

The all-new TVS Jupiter 125 was recently launched in India and it carries forward the Jupiter 110's legacy in a new segment. The TVS Jupiter is the brand's bestselling scooter with over 4.5 million units sold in less than a decade. With the Jupiter 125, TVS aims to break into the popular and crowded 125 cc segment. We rode the scooter earlier this year and told you all about it. And there's plenty that works in its favour. You should be seriously considering it if you are looking for your next family scooter. But before you make the decisions, here's our list of pros and cons about the TVS Jupiter 125 to help you make that decision.

The TVS Jupiter 125's seat is 65 mm longer than the 110 cc version. The low seat height and wide floorboard also make it quite accessible

Pros

  1. The TVS Jupiter 125's motor is peppy and tuned for better low and mid-range grunt. It's optimised for city riding and maximising fuel efficiency. The scooter impresses with its stability and handling too, while the refinement levels are right up there. It also gets a segment-first gas-charged rear monoshock.
  2. The Jupiter 125 gets the largest under-seat storage capacity on a petrol scooter at 33 litres. And that's ample space to store a lot more than knick-knacks. Two half-face helmets or smaller full-face helmets will fit easily. There's also the usual hooks and an open glovebox too.
  3. The floorboard is quite large and not only accommodates the rider's legs well but is wide enough to carry things, something which many owners will appreciate.
  4. While the wheelbase on the Jupiter 125 is the same as the Jupiter 110, the model is one of the longest in its class. And that has helped bring a 65 mm longer seat over the 110 cc version. This allows for better comfort for the rider and pillion in every way possible.
  5. The big change on the TVS Jupiter 125 is the repositioning of the fuel tank. It's now placed under the floorboard with reinforcements all around and the fuel filler lid is placed on the apron. This not only makes for better access but also a low centre of gravity.

The Jupiter 125 doesn't get the most emotive design language and that may come across as a bit boring to younger buyers

Cons

  1. The TVS Jupiter 125 did leave us wanting for more when it came to the looks. It's as conservative as the 110 version and we do think it could've done a little more bold lines. Thankfully, the colours are vibrant.
  2. The top-end of the power band leaves you disappointed on the Jupiter 125. The scooter takes a while to push between 60-80 kmph and feels out of breath once you've crossed the 84 kmph mark. While most owners won't do those speeds all day, those looking for performance may find this a little less.
  3. While the base version is priced from a competitive Rs. 73,400, the top-spec disc-alloy variant is priced at Rs. 81,300 (all prices, ex-showroom, Delhi). That's substantially high and some may find the Jupiter 125 a tad bit expensive, especially when compared to the segment leader - Suzuki Access 125.
