TVS Motor Company has introduced a new technology platform – TVS intelliGO. Similar to the i3S (Idle Stop Start System) used by Hero MotoCorp, the TVS intelliGO tech switches off the engine during long idling like traffic signals, and resumes operation by a simple throttle rev. As a result, the technology helps avoid fuel wastage, hence reducing emissions. The TVS IntelliGo technology will debut on the TVS Jupiter BS6, thus making it the first 110cc scooter in the industry to come with this technology.
The TVS Jupiter BS6 is equipped with Ecothrust Fuel injection (ET-Fi) technology which delivers a claimed 15 per cent better mileage, better startability, refinement, and durability. The scooter has an LED headlamp, 2-litre glove box, mobile charger, 21-litre underseat storage, and adjustable rear shock absorbers. The Jupiter’s 110cc engine generates 7.37bhp at 7000rpm and 8.4Nm at 5500 rpm.
Speaking at the unveil of the intelliGo tech, Aniruddha Haldar, VP (Marketing) – Commuter Motorcycles, Scooters and Corporate Brand, TVS Motor Company said, “The TVS intelliGO is a testimony to our philosophy of listening to our customers, understanding their needs, and innovating our products to provide an unmatched product experience. This intelligent Stop & Go technology is significant for our consumers through its dual impact of reducing fuel costs and emissions. The technology facilitates a comfortable riding experience for our customers, along with reducing emissions. We are confident that the discerning TVS Jupiter customers will find immense value in this innovation.”
The TVS Jupiter ZX Disc with TVS intelliGO is priced at Rs 72,347 (ex-showroom, Delhi) and available in two colours: Starlight Blue and Royal Wine.
