TVS Motor Company has temporarily discontinued the range-topping variant of the Jupiter series, the Jupiter Grande. The scooter has already been taken down from the company's official website line-up.
The Jupiter Grande is a relatively fresh product, it received its last update back in September 2019. Even though it might have been taken down from the website line-up, but in all likeliness it will return in the updated BS 6 avatar. Also, since the base Jupiter scooter has already received the required BS 6 update, there seems to be no reason for the Jupiter Grande to be kept off from retails for any longer than a month.
