Hero Xoom Launched At A Price Of Rs 68,599
The Hero Xoom scooter from Hero is available in three variations, the LX, VX, and ZX, each of which costs Rs 68,599, Rs 71,799, and Rs 76,699, respectively. These rates are introductory, and it is not yet known how long they will be available before a price increase.
The only model of the Hero Xoom featuring cornering lights is the top-spec ZX model, which marks a first for the 110cc scooter market and even a few categories above. In essence, these lights cast light in the direction the scooter is leaning. When the scooter is leaning into a corner, a gyroscopic/accelerometer sensor transmits a signal to the cornering lighting. When the scooter is stationary and the handlebar is twisted, the cornering lighting does not turn on. The mobility scooter must be moving.
A front disc brake, diamond-cut alloy wheels, and Hero’s XTEC Bluetooth connectivity system, which provides notification alerts on the digital display, are additional features that are only available on the ZX model.
The mid-spec VX model does not have the connection features described above but does have a digital dash (with different lighting). The only version other than the base LX has a digi-analogue dash arrangement, while the other models all come equipped with a USB charger, glove box, and boot light.
The Maestro Edge 110 and the Pleasure+ both have 110.9cc engines, while the Hero Xoom has the same engine with the same tuning. The single-cylinder, air-cooled engine produces 8.7Nm of torque at 5,750 rpm and 8.1 horsepower at 7,250 rpm. All Xoom models come with Hero’s i3s start/stop technology, which can also be turned off.
Hero’s other 110cc bikes have the same chassis, but it has been modified especially for the Xoom. The mono-shock and telescopic fork configurations are brand-new.
The LX model must make do with a 90/90-12 rear tyre whereas the VX and ZX variants get a larger 100/80-12 unit. All vehicles continue to use front tyres with a 90/90-12 size.
The ground clearance is 155mm, while the seat height is a manageable 770mm. The only type having a 190mm front disc brake is the top-tier ZX model; the other two must make do with a 130mm front drum brake. All variations come standard with a 130mm drum brake on the back.
The Xoom ZX weighs 109kg, compared to 108kg for the LX and VX models. All three models have 5.2 litres of fuel capacity. According to Hero, Xoom is not currently OBD-2 compliant. The OBD-2 standards take effect on April 1, 2023.
Prices for the Xoom range from Rs 68,599 for the entry-level LX model to Rs 76,699 for the top-of-the-line ZX model. The top-spec ZX is approximately Rs 4,000 less than the recently released Activa H-Smart at this pricing. The TVS Jupiter, which is priced between Rs 69,990 and 86,263, is also less expensive than the Xoom. However, it’s important to note that these costs are just temporary.
