TVS launches Bluetooth and drum brake-equipped Jupiter ZX at Rs 84,468

TVS Motor Co has launched another variant of its best-selling scooter, the Jupiter. The new Jupiter ZX Drum, priced at Rs 84,468 (ex-showroom Delhi), is the ZX variant with a drum brake and its SmartXonnect Bluetooth tech, previously available only with the disc brake variant.

The new variant features TVS' Bluetooth-enabled SmartXonnect technology that allows riders to experience a host of connected features, including turn-by-turn navigation, voice assist and notification alerts. The scooter also comes with a built-in USB charger. The ZX also gets two new colours – Starlight Blue and an exclusive new option called Olive Gold.

The Jupiter ZX Drum continues to be powered by an air-cooled, 109.7cc, single-cylinder engine which develops maximum power of 7.8hp and 8.8 Nm of torque. Nestling this engine is a simple underbone frame, suspended by a telescopic fork and monoshock setup. Braking duties are handled by drum brakes at both ends. 

With this latest iteration, the TVS Jupiter range stands expanded to seven variants – four of the 110cc variant and three 125cc – with prices ranging from Rs 73,240 through to 89,648 (ex-showroom Delhi).
