2020 Jupiter price is a little confusing – the price hike varies between 6 to 13 percent. New revealed doc shows minor power drop…
TVS announced the launch of its Jupiter BS6 back in November 2019 (link to launch story). But it was limited to the higher Classic variant. The scooter receives fuel injection in place of the carburetor and TVS says this has increased the performance and smoothness of the engine. It also claims that fuel efficiency has gone up by 15 percent in the process.
However, even till today ie after more than two months the company has not revealed the exact specs of the upgraded scooter. Zigwheels has got hold of some specs of the new scoot though. According to the document, Jupiter BS6 produces 5.5 kw (7.48 PS) of peak power at 7000 rpm which is down from the 5.88 kw (8 PS) of the BS4 version – a drop of about half a PS. But the BS6 Jupiter peaks 500 rpm lower.
The price of the Classic BS6 variant was announced to be very similar to the Activa 125 BS6, which was high. But now, TVS has updated its website with the prices of two other, lesser variants in the lineup. Here is how it stands…

|Variant||BS4 Price||BS6 Price|
This only misses out the ZX disc and Grande – all the other variant prices have been updated. If you look at the difference in price hikes between this lineup there is a big mismatch. While the biggest price hike of 13.2 percent has gone to the Classic variant, the standard Jupiter also stands close at an increment of 11 percent (Rs 6100). But, for some reason the ZX has only seen a minor increase of 6.9 percent (Rs 4102).
The reason of this significant disparity could be the omission or inclusion of few features within these variants with respect to each other. This we will only come to know when TVS releases details of these variants or updates them at its official website.
