Hero MotoCorp has added a new variant to the Xoom 110 family in India – the Combat Edition. Taking inspiration from a fighter jet aircraft, this variant features a unique dual-tone grey-and-black colour scheme with yellow and black inserts. The new Hero Xoom Combat Edition sets you back by Rs 80,967, which is Rs 1,000 more than the ZX variant on which the new model is based. It goes on sale in the country alongside the LX (Rs 71,484), VX (Rs 74,917), and ZX (Rs 79,967) variants. The prices are ex-showroom, India.  

Given that the Hero Xoom Combat Edition is based on the Hero Xoom ZX, the features list includes a Bluetooth-enabled digital instrument cluster, intelligent cornering lights, an idle start-stop system (i3S), diamond-cut alloy wheels, front disc brakes, and a USB charging port. Even the mechanicals remain the same as the ZX variant – a 110.9cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine with 8.05bhp at 7,250rpm and 8.7Nm of peak torque at 5,750rpm. The engine comes mated to a CVT transmission. At its price, the Combat Edition is now the most expensive scooter in the Xoom lineup. In terms of market competition, the Hero Xoom rivals the likes of the Honda Dio and the TVS Jupiter in India.

Hero Xoom 125R, Xoom 160 Incoming in H2 FY2024-25

In other news, Hero is preparing to introduce the Xoom 160 and Xoom 125R scooters in India in the second half of the current financial year. The former is a maxi-scooter which is an answer to the likes of the Aprilia SXR 160 and the Yamaha Aerox 155, while the latter is a sporty scooter going against the Suzuki Avenis 125, the Aprilia SR 125, and the TVS Ntorq 125. 

Speaking of the Xoom 125R, it will be positioned above the Xoom 110 in the company's lineup. Powering the sporty scooter will be a 124.6cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine mated to a CVT automatic. Compared to other 125cc Hero scooters, this engine makes more power but slightly less torque – 9.5bhp and 10.14Nm. Features-wise, the Xoom 125R will offer segment-first sequential LED indicators and a fully digital dash along with Bluetooth connectivity, notification alerts, and turn-by-turn navigation. This scooter will be part of Hero's new premium product line and is likely to be offered through the network of Hero Premia dealerships. As far as its pricing goes, the 125cc scooter is expected to retail around Rs 80,000–85,000 (ex-showroom).

On the other side, the larger-capacity Xoom 160 will come powered by a 156cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine. This engine, which has Hero's patented i3s stop-start technology and a silent starter, can put out 14bhp at 8,000rpm and 13.7Nm of torque at 6,500rpm. Tipping the scales at 141kg (with fuel), the 160cc variant of the Xoom will get a standard telescopic fork/dual shock absorber arrangement, and will roll on 14-inch wheels wrapped in block-pattern tyres.

Also, the maxi-scooter will get a fully digital dash, keyless ignition, remote seat opening, smart find, and two split LED headlights. However, it remains to be seen whether the scooter will feature Bluetooth connectivity and turn-by-turn navigation. Price-wise, it could be around Rs 1.30 lakh (ex-showroom).
