Hero MotoCorp announced a slew of strategic initiatives here at the EICMA 2023, including extensive growth plans to expand its footprint in electric mobility, enter new ICE vehicle categories and foray into Europe. The company unveiled three concept vehicles and three production-ready vehicles at EICMA – the world’s largest two-wheeler expo. It also announced a road-map to enter the European markets such as Spain, France and the UK by mid-2024. The company unveiled two new ICE scooters – the Xoom 125R and the Xoom 160 at the show. Both scooters will enter multiple geographies soon.
The all-new Xoom 125R, is designed for the free-spirited modern warrior with design attributes inspired from a flight of a Falcon. The design translates into a new 14’’ platform that offers increased stability and aggressive styling with perfect aerodynamics. Advanced LED lighting package with first-in-segment Sequential LED Winkers and Digital Speedometer with Bluetooth connectivity & turn-by-turn navigation make the Xoom 125R the complete package. Powered by a 125cc engine, it will go against the likes of the Suzuki Burgman and Honda Dio 125.
Entering a new segment, Hero MotoCorp is expanding the Xoom brand profile with the Xoom 160. The Xoom 160 challenges the boundaries of the rider’s mind to explore the roads less traveled, while offering all practicalities.
The new scooter adds the EXTRA to life – extra space, extra comfort, extra superiority, and extra road presence – that provides the feeling of going anywhere and doing anything. Powered by a 156cc liquid cooled engine with enhanced i3s silent start tech (idle stop and silent start system) and featuring an evocative & agile design with a go-anywhere functionality, the Xoom 160 never fails to stand out.
The all-new Xoom 160 offers 14” large wheels with block pattern wide tires for better stability and comfort, a Smart Key with Keyless Ignition, Remote Seat Opening, Smart Find, and aggressive bold design with dual chamber LED headlamp & LED Tail lamp. The scooter is expected to get 14-15 PS of power and rival the Aprilia SRX 160 and Yamaha Aerox.
