BS6 TVS Jupiter vs Honda Activa 6G: Features and Price

3. Features

This is one front where both the offerings have some unique features which can pretty much prove to be the deal-breaker based on the buyer's requirement. The Jupiter boasts of unique features like alloy wheels (standard, across all variants), bigger storage space beneath the seat, LED headlamps along with the DRLs, Semi-digital speed console (across few variants), 2-litre utility storage and it also gives the buyer an option of installing phone charger.

Activa, on the other hand, gets a couple of fresh new features over its predecessors in form of a start-stop switch and external fuel lid while features like Integrated dual function switch have been carried from its predecessor, however, it misses out on important features like mobile charging port and alloys, which are not offered even in the top trim variant.

4. Price

Though there is not a large difference in the prices of the two competitors but being placed in the price-sensitive bracket, even the smallest of price changes can play an instrumental role, and hence the story with the Activa and Jupiter is no different as they are priced aggressively against each other.

The two Activa trims the base STD and top of the line Deluxe are priced at Rs. 63,516 and Rs. 65,016 respectively (both ex-showroom, Delhi).

Jupiter is marginally cheaper and is offered in effectively two variants the base variant and ZX variant priced at Rs 61,971 and Rs. 63,971 respectively (both ex-showroom, Delhi)

Jupiter also gets a classic variant which is exactly similar to the ZX mechanically and feature-wise but is offered with visible cosmetic changes to give it a retro look and is priced at Rs. 69,282, significantly higher than Activa's Deluxe trim.

The Classic variant gets cosmetic updates like dual-tone seat, windshield and chromed rearview mirrors with cushioned backrest. 

2. Engine and Fuel efficiency

Although the same 109.51cc new fuel injection equipped engine powers both the Jupiter and the Activa, the difference in the body weights and different injection technology means that the Jupiter has slightly better on-paper power output figures.

Activa 6G's PGM fuel injection technology engine produces a peak power of 7.68 bHP as compared to Ecothrust Fuel Injection equipped Jupiter's 7.9 bHP. However, on the torque front, Activa does a slightly better job toppling Jupiter's 8 N-m torque output with its 8.79 N-m.   

Superior fuel efficiency is the reason why buyers on tight budgets opt for the scooters in the entry range.  

As far as company claims are concerned, the new BS-6 compliant variant will witness an increase in efficiency by 15% on TVS Jupiter over the previous version and Honda has claimed that the updates in the 6th generation over Honda Activity 5th generation are set to ramp up the mileage by 10%.

Also cost-cutting is quite evident on the Activa with welded sections clearly visible on the exhaust, while Jupiter with a subtle finish looks far better.

Side profile

Jupiter looks a class apart from the side profile thanks to the stylish 12-inch alloys on both front and rear. While its counterpart from Honda misses out on an alloy even in the top of line deluxe variant and also the rear gets a puny 10.0 inches wheel in comparison to the front (12.0 inches) which doesn't look very good.

1. Design

Both being entry segment commuters, design surely is not their USP, and so it is purely based on buyer's discretion and their subjective opinion, which one would be their pick.

However, we have got the facts straight from our observations in order to help you make an informed decision

Front profile & rear profile.

The Honda gets a slight advantage over the TVS as far as the front end is concerned, as it offers a metallic body on the side of the front profile while the Jupiter with fiber is more likely to succumb under a side impact.

The 110cc segment of scooters is the most popular in the Indian marekt. Their great fuel efficiencies, easy maneuverability, convenience features, simple and slick ride quality for daily city commutes are some of the prime reasons why the scooter market has been on a boom.

The Indian Scooter market is currently being dominated by Honda with its popular product Activa (Honda's highest selling scooter in both 110cc and 125cc segment) churning out record sales numbers. However, it is also important to note that TVS has done a commendable job in the past couple of years rising quickly through the ranks with quality products like Jupiter (offered with 110cc engine) and NTorq (offered with 125cc engine) which means that Honda can definitely not fancy any slackness whatsoever.

Speaking of the sales-centric 110cc scooter segment, we thought of easing out the Honda Vs. TVS confusion for you by scripting down a parameter based comparison between the Activa and Jupiter, as both are upgraded to comply with BS6 norms.
