2020 Jupiter BS6 price increase is over 13 percent but with the advantage of fuel injection, TVS claims performance gain and 15 percent hike in fuel efficiency…
After introducing the Apache 4V twins yesterday, TVS has announced the official launch of its largest selling scooter Jupiter with Bharat Stage VI compliance. It is the ‘Classic’ version that has been upgraded first. Others will follow soon.
2020 Jupiter gets fuel injection which makes it BS6 compliant. TVS has also informed that it has developed two types of fuel injections – RT-Fi (which stands for Race Tuned fuel injection) and ET-Fi (short for Ecothrust fuel injection). The RT-Fi, as its name suggests, is for its performance motorcycles whereas the commuter motorcycles and scooters, like the Jupiter, will be equipped with ET-Fi.
Though the engine is likely to remain the same 109.7cc air-cooled unit, TVS has not shared its power and torque figures with us. For reference, the current BS4 version produces 5.88 kw (8 PS) of peak power at 7500 rpm and 8.4 Nm of max torque at 5500 rpm. However, TVS has specified that the new Jupiter will offer enhanced performance, smoothness and a significant 15 percent hike in fuel efficiency.
