Hero Xoom price is attractive for what it offers. It is the company’s sportiest scooter in the market and comes with a lot of expectations…
Hero MotoCorp has been trying its hand in the scooter segment, however, it hasn’t tasted the same success as its motorcycles. It had as many as four models in the scooter space and the new Xoom joined the portfolio yesterday. Let us quickly summarize it in five pointers…
In the 110cc space, Hero has tried Pleasure, Maestro Edge and Duet. The Duet, which was positioned as a utility scooter, did not find much acceptance and was discontinued. Pleasure, which is targeted at the fairer sex, is doing fairly good business for Hero whereas the Maestro Edge is the sportier option from the company.
The Xoom is Hero’s sportiest offering yet! It is targeted at the country’s youth who would otherwise buy the Honda Dio or the more powerful Ntorq, Avenis, etc. We won’t be surprised if there is a 125cc variant of this scooter in the future.
Xoom is offered in five funky color themes – Sports Red, Polestar Blue, Black, Matte Abrax Orange and Pearl Silver White.
The engine and the platform is the same as Pleasure or the Maestro Edge 110. The 110.9cc single cylinder engine churns 8.05 bhp of peak power at 7250 rpm and 8.7 Nm of max torque at 5750 rpm. The chassis has also been carried over.
What is Different?
The suspension set-up – both front and rear – are new and so is the overall styling that seems to be inspired from the Vida V1 – company’s electric scoot! It also gets diamond cut alloys along with many interesting features listed below.
Xoom comes with Cornering lights – ie when the rider is in motion and he tilts a bit to take a turn – right or left – additional lights lit up for added visibility. It also features bigger 12 inch tyres – both at the front and rear. The rear tyre (on some variants) is a fat 100/80 unit.
Then there is that LED projector headlamp, H-shaped LED DRLs both at the front and rear. Xoom also comes with a fairly big digital instrument console that also gets Bluetooth pairability and features like call/SMS alerts, real time mileage indicator, etc.
Additionally Xoom also comes with Hero’s i3s start-stop tech along with combined braking system. The top of the line variant comes with a 190 mm disc brake. However, it misses out on one key feature – external fuel filler cap that is a norm these days.

Hero Xoom Price
Hero has been trying to shift buyer’s focus towards its own scooters from the Pleasure – which was essentially a Honda-underpinned product. So the prices for all its 110cc scooters overlap, almost.
The Xoom gets three variants and here are the respective prices..
|XOOM LX||Rs 68,599|
|XOOM VX||Rs 71,799|
|XOOM ZX||Rs 76,699|
In comparison, rival Honda Dio is priced between Rs 68,625 and Rs 72,626. The Xoom is pretty kitted up and appears to be an interesting scooter – and it has been priced well. However, do note that these are introductory tags and may be jacked up, if there is a favorable response from the market.
