Hero aims to increase its premium sector market share by introducing numerous upcoming bikes with various displacements. The corporation is also developing more affordable goods for the budget-conscious end of the market, including this recently seen updated Xoom model, which could include a larger 125cc bike engine.
New Hero Xoom: What to know
When you look closer, you notice that this and the Xoom 110 appear very similar. However, the current model’s rear is very different. The mudguard now serves as the location for the rear reflector. At the same time, the Xoom 110’s halogen indicators have been replaced with LED units. Even the side profile and the panels behind the headlight on this updated Xoom test mule are substantially different, with more layered design features.
New Hero Xoom: Hardware and Engine
Given that the existing Hero Xoom motor is substantially the same as the other two 110cc Hero scooters, the upcoming Xoom 125 may also feature the same powertrain. If so, the Destini 125 and Maestro Edge 125’s air-cooled, single-cylinder, 124.6cc engines could work here. The power numbers will probably not change much from 9.1bhp/10.4Nm. It appears that both ends of this scooter have 12-inch alloy wheels.
The huge storage compartments on the front apron and the mirror modules are carried over from the current Xoom.
The larger Xoom 125 may follow suit since it is positioned above the Pleasure+ and Maestro Edge 110. This implies that its asking price should be higher than those of the Maestro Edge 125 (Rs 79,356-Rs 83,806) and the Destini 125 XTEC (Rs 78,988-Rs 85,478). The TVS Ntorq and the Suzuki Avenis are competitors in the Indian market for sporty 125cc scooters.
