TVS Jive was discontinued because it had very less sale compared to the others in the segment. The bike was the first of its kind in India and used no clutch in changing gears. It sold a very few units and was not a popular product. The design of TVS Jive was also not what user's really wanted to have, making it more controversial on its technology as well as its looks. It uses the same engine being used in TVS Star City whereas the Sport uses a smaller unit as its engine. The semi-automatic technology eased city riding but never became too popular to the masses.
