According to Aniruddha Haldar, Vice President (Marketing) – Commuter Motorcycles, Scooters & Corporate Brand, “we have been at the forefront of introducing technological advancements backed by customer insight. 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.”
Stating that the intelligent Stop & Go technology is significant for their consumers through its dual impact of reducing fuel costs and emissions, Haldar added that the technology facilitates a comfortable riding experience for our customers, along with reducing emissions.
“intelliGO will debut on our flagship scooter brand – Jupiter. We are confident that the discerning Jupiter customers will find immense value in this innovation.”
Riding comfort & mileage
According to TVS, intelliGO enhances the riding comfort, mileage and reduces emissions by intelligently switching off the engine during long idling like traffic signals and other transient stops. The vehicle is ready to go by a simple throttle rev which enhances convenience.
The technology also helps avoid fuel wastage during these stops and reduces emissions. TVS IntelliGo technology will debut on TVS Jupiter, thus making it the first 110cc scooter in the industry to come with this technology.
Jupiter is equipped with Ecothrust Fuel injection (ET-Fi) technology which delivers 15% better mileage, better startability, refinement, and durability. The scooter has LED headlamp, 2-litre glove box, mobile charger and 21-litre storage. The adjustable shock absorbers further enhance riding convenience. TVS Jupiter’s 110cc engine generates a maximum power of 5.5 kW at 7000 rpm while producing a maximum torque of 8.4Nm at 5500 rpm.
