In this ever upgrading world today everything gets outdated very quickly and new technology replaces old one even faster. That is why the Indian motorcycle manufacturer TVS Motor Company has introduced the newest variant of its highest selling scooter, Jupiter, with the company’s proprietary connectivity feature called the SmartXonnect technology that was first introduced in the NTorq 125.
The model has been introduced at a price of Rs 80,973 (ex-showroom, Delhi). The new top-of-the-line variant will get a host of technology features like a fully digital console, Voice Assist, Navigation Assist, and SMS/Call alerts to cater to tech-savvy customers.
The SmartXonnect feature in the new Jupiter ZX will use an app to link the rider’s Android or iOS smartphone to the scooter, allowing them to access services like call and text notifications, overspeeding alerts, and trip information. However, the SMS notification function will not work on iOS devices and will only appear on Android phones for stored contacts. The speed, trip meter, and odometer readings, as well as fuel levels and warning lights, are all shown in the analogue-digital combination cluster.

The Jupiter ZX with SmartXonnect will also get an interactive Voice Assist feature that will allow the owners to interact with the scooter through voice commands given to the TVS Smartxonnect application via a connected device such as Bluetooth headphones, wired headphones or a helmet that is connected and Bluetooth equipped. The riders will also be able to see and listen to the vehicle’s response via the digital instrument cluster and the used audio channel.
In terms of the design, the scooter will be looking familiar to the outgoing models with the exception of Silver Oak colour inner panels, a new Dual Tone seat with a new design pattern and a rear backrest to provide added comfort and convenience to the pillion.
