Hero MotoCorp today launched the new 110cc scooter – Xoom. With an industry-first feature – the Hero Intelligent Cornering Light (HiCL), and segment-first features – bigger and wider tyres and zippy acceleration in the 110cc segment.
The Hero Intelligent Cornering LightTM (HiCL) makes its debut in the 110cc segment with Hero Xoom. The HiCL illuminates the dark corner areas when the rider is taking a turn or heading into curves. The rider benefits from the illumination of the corners on the road, thereby ensuring safer riding at night.
The Xoom comes with a powerful BS-VI compliant engine that features Hero MotoCorp’s i3S technology (Idle Stop-Start System). The new Digital Speedometer with Bluetooth connectivity and Side-Stand Engine-cut-off are on offer.
The all-new Hero Xoom introduces a radical new futuristic design language. The lighting package – including LED Projector Headlamp, LED Tail Lamps, and industry-first “HiCL-Hero intelligent cornering light” – provides an unmistakable presence to the scooter. The signature H position head and tail lamps ensure distinct character, uniform illumination and enhanced rider safety. Bigger and Wider Tyres, Diamond Cut Alloy Wheels, Integrated Rear grip are on offer.
The all-new Hero Xoom has been developed with as many as 25+ patent applications. Hero Xoom is programmed with ‘XSens Technology’ which helps in improving the performance, durability, safety, reliability and fuel economy. In addition, the full digital speedometer with Bluetooth Connectivity provides call (Caller ID) and SMS updates, and key alerts, such as Low Fuel Indicator, (RTMI), Phone Battery etc. Features such as the Side Stand Engine Cut Off, Boot Light and Mobile Charger in front glove box are on offer.
The Hero Xoom comes with a 110cc BS-VI compliant engine producing a maximum power output of 8.05 BHP @ 7250 RPM and torque of 8.7 Nm @ 5750 RPM. The new Hero Xoom comes with the i3S patented technology for enhanced convenience and higher fuel efficiency. This does not make it the very best in the segment. At 109 kg it is still 9 kg heavier than the quicker and more fuel-economical Yamaha 125cc scooters, leaving them not the ideal choice in this segment.
Launched in three variants – Sheet Drum, Cast Drum and Cast Disc, Hero Xoom scooter is available at Hero MotoCorp dealerships across the country at an Introductory Price of INR 68,599 (LX -Sheet Drum), INR 71,799 (VX – Cast Drum) and INR 76,699 (ZX – Cast Drum) *(Ex-Showroom, Delhi).
The Hero Xoom is available in five color options. While the Sheet Drum variant is available in Polestar Blue, the Cast Drum variant is available in Polestar Blue, Black & Pearl Silver White. The Cast Disc variant is available in Polestar Blue, Black, Sports Red and Matt Abrax Orange color schemes. A polarising design from Hero is not ideal for its customers which are Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities based along with rural markets. This scooter could work in Urban markets but with limited performance and just about good pricing, there is little probability of high success, if not average.
