India's largest bikemaker- HeroMotoCorp, is eyeing to expand its market share. The brand has launched a mass-market entry-level 110cc scooter - Xoom, at Rs 68,599 (ex-showroom). There are a total of three variants on offer- LX(68,599) , VX(71,699) and ZX (77,699). Here's everything you need to know about the Xoom 110.
Hero has a simple yet sophisticated-looking motorcycle in their portfolio. They needed a sporty-looking commuter, so the Xoom 110 came into existence. The front design cues resemble its rival - TVS Ntorq 125. It gets LED headlamps with X-shaped DRLs, making it look sharper. The stand-out feature, though, is the addition of a cornering light which functions on the gyroscopic principle. On the sides, it looks neat with sleek lines and creases. The back of the scooter is also distinctive, thanks to the X-shaped LED taillamps. The scooter has four colour schemes - Polestar Blue, Black, Sports Red and Matt Abrax Orange. The bike's seat height is 770mm, and the ground clearance stands at 155mm.
The scooter gets a 110cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine that produces 8.05 hp at 7250 RPM and 8.7 Nm torque at 5750 RPM. The engine comes mated with Hero's patented i3S Idle Stop-Start System. Hero claims the Xoom to be the fastest accelerating scooter in its segment, with a 0-60kmph sprint in 9.2 seconds. The top-end ZX variant weighs 109 kg, whereas the other two weigh 108 kg.
Hero Xoom 110 features telescopic forks at the front and a monoshock setup at the rear. Anant Pandey will share detailed impressions of the ride on 2nd February.
The brakes in the top-spec ZX variant feature a 190mm front disc brake and 130mm rear drum. In comparison, the other two variants get a 130mm drum brake setup.
The top trims- VX and ZX variants come equipped with a wider 100/80-12 tyre at the rear and 90/90-12 tyre at the front, whereas the entry-level LX variant comes with a 90/90-12 front and rear setup.
