The Honda Activa is the top choice of many people looking to buy a new scooter. However, this is changing since TVS launched the Jupiter in the Indian market, which was able to grab quite a bit of attention and started to grab some of the market share once dominated by the Honda Activa. So, here is the comparison between TVS Jupiter and Honda Activa.
Honda Activa vs TVS Jupiter: Looks
Both scooters are very traditional in design, as they are aimed at reaching a wider audience, so neither manufacturer took any risks with the design. Having said that, both manufacturers offer special edition scooters in case people want their scooters to stand out.
The Activa’s design has remained largely unchanged since its first iteration. Honda provided some updates so it doesn’t start to look dated. So it gets LED elements, but the scooter is still instantly recognizable as an Activa. To some, the Jupiter might look cleaner, as it has a slightly more modern design with the turn indicators on the front apron. It also uses LED headlights up front, but the taillights are halogen. TVS also sells a classic variant of the Jupiter, which has some vintage elements.
