One day after it rolled out its first BS VI-compliant two-wheeler, the Apache RTR, TVS Motor Co has expanded its BS VI product range to its popular Jupiter scooter, which is equipped with ET-Fi (Ecothrust Fuel injection) technology. The BS-VI TVS Jupiter Classic ET-Fi is priced at Rs 67,911 (ex-showroom Delhi).
TVS says it has developed two versions of BS-VI Fi platforms – RT-Fi (Race Tuned Fuel injection) and ET-Fi (Ecothrust Fuel injection). The BS-VI TVS Jupiter gets ET-Fi technology, which is said to provide enhanced overall performance in terms of rideability, smoothness, and fuel economy. The RT-Fi technology, as on the Apache RTR, is designed to provide enjoyable racing experience in all driving conditions.
The Jupiter Classic ET-Fi, clad in a new blue colour, is the first in the Jupiter portfolio to be launched with this technology. It also gets a front panel USB charger and a mobile cubby space in addition to a tinted visor.
