Honda Activa 5G vs TVS Jupiter Design
The Activa and the Jupiter are utility scooters. Styling is not their USP. However both companies have ensured that they look contemporary and stylish. The design is basic scooter like and in this department there is very little to choose between them. Both scooters are free of body graphics and have a clean look. The TVS Jupiter ZX gets a dual tone theme to add some excitement, which we are not a fan of. The Activa 5G has quite imposing looks as well. Both these scooters have a metal body (except the front panel). The Jupiter adds some more flair as it gets alloy wheels which are black in colour.

Both scooters are quite feature rich. The Honda Activa 5G now comes with a seat opening switch next to the ignition key.

The Jupiter on the other hand does not have a seat switch and you need to remove the key and slot it on the side panel to open the seat. However, the fuel filler cap is placed outside, which eliminates the need to open the seat for filling fuel.

This is an area where the TVS Jupiter excels. The Jupiter feels lighter and more agile too.

One of the reasons for that, apart from the loer weight is the fact that the Jupiter gets 12-inch wheels and a telescopic front suspension. This makes the handing much more improved.

In terms of brakes, the Activa 5G gets Combi Brakes, while the TVS Jupiter gets Sync brakes. The function of both is similar. Additionally, Jupiter also has an option of a front disc brake, which is not available in the Honda Activa 5G.
