TVS Jupiter vs Suzuki Access comparison and road-test review

The scooter segment in India is an intense market and the Honda Activa is the best-seller. After a huge difference in sales numbers, the TVS Jupiter comes in at second and with a narrow margin comes the Suzuki Access in third.

The Jupiter and the Access have been at it for a while now and although they are slightly different, they compete head-on. Let’s compare the two scooters in real-world scenarios to see which of the two is better and where you should be investing your money.  

TVS Jupiter vs Suzuki Access

Pricing

Scooter Model Pricing
TVS Jupiter ₹52,293 onwards
Suzuki Access ₹55,977 onwards

Design - Jupiter vs Access

TVS Jupiter vs Suzuki Access

In terms of design, the Jupiter and the Access feature halogen headlights, unlike the Activa’s LED lighting. The Jupiter keeps the front end simple, with the headlight mounted on the handlebar, while the Access portrays running lights on either side of its front.

Both scooters portray a large, comfortable seat and are equipped with decent legroom, that doubles up as a utility area. The TVS Jupiter runs on 12-inch wheels front and rear, while the Access gets a 12-inch front and a 10-inch rear.

Features on the Jupiter compared to the Access

In terms of features, both scooters get the headlights always on feature, eliminating the need of a headlight on/off switch. Both scooters get an electric start and optional disc brakes for the front. Also, both vehicles get a combined braking system — TVS calls it the SYNC braking system while Suzuki terms it simply as Combined Brake.

Both vehicles offer an adequate amount of under-seat storage — the Jupiter offers 17-litres while the Access has a massive 21-litre compartment. Both vehicles comfortably tuck away a full-face helmet. Another aspect worth noticing is the fuel-filler cap — TVS has it externally while the Suzuki’s seat needs to be opened.

Engine specifications on the Jupiter vs Access

TVS Jupiter vs Suzuki Access

In terms of engine specifications, both scooters have a difference as the TVS Jupiter employs a 110 cc engine while the Access comes with a 125 cc engine. As the displacement portrays, the Access offers more power on tap for the rider.  

  TVS Jupiter Suzuki Access
Displacement 109 cc 124 cc
Power 7.8 bhp 8.4 bhp
Torque 8 Nm 10.2 Nm
Mileage (Claimed) 56 km/l 64 km/l

Ride and handling

TVS Jupiter vs Suzuki Access

Both scooters, Jupiter and the Access are not made for outright performance, but rather to offer the most comfort for city commute. The telescopic front forks make both vehicles ride extremely well. The Access offers a better riding posture as the handlebar is placed slightly higher compared to the Jupiter, making it great in the city and on the occasional open roads.

That said, the Access offers better throttle response as well, making the rider confident that there’s more power available on tap in case needed. The seats on both scooters are good, but the Access manages to offer a slightly better saddle, combined with marginally better legroom in the front, making the Access the more comfortable scooter of the two.

Verdict - Should you buy the TVS Jupiter or the Suzuki Access?

TVS Jupiter vs Suzuki Access

In this road-test comparison, we would recommend the Suzuki Access. The Suzuki offers a mild retro-classic design, and this, combined with a large storage area under the seat, a cubby hole in the front to hold a water bottle, better legroom, and a crisp engine makes the Access a winner.

The TVS Jupiter is not far behind, as the external fuel filler cap and a slightly stiff suspension setup make the Jupiter a great scooter as well. Minor changes on the overall ergonomics could make the Jupiter better, but with its current setup, it would appeal to the younger generation, but to them, there are a number of choices available in the market.
