    Jupiter- A great buy as compared to Activa.
    Mileage- before 1st and 2nd service – 35-40kmpl
    after that it’ll give 45-50 kmpl
    I own both of them, so its better to go for jupiter.

    Jupiter looks like Hero Maestro, with only small changes. reliability is the only concern with TVS.

    Activa having hydraulic suspension in front, if the roads are worst, then you will have the backpain. So better go with Jupiter, it is having Telescopic suspension.
    If you want Honda scooters, go for Aviator, it has telescopic suspension, great riding comfort. I have used it for 4 years.

          Jupiter is activa’s clone except a few good features.activa i is designed for the female mind set, so its upto you to design. Activa i suits good even for a girl who is 5 ft..

    Jupiter also has external fuel filling facility just like motorbikes. To add further it has the least turning radius. It is the best scooter I have ever drove on Indian roads.
