Hero Xoom is HERE! Let’s Compare its Specs With its Competitors

Published on February 02, 2023 by BikeJunction

The Hero Xoom is the newest competitor in the fiercely competitive market for sporty 110cc scooters, and the Honda Dio has long been that competitor’s main adversary. However, even though they aren’t direct competitors to the Xoom, the metal-bodied Honda Activa H-Smart and the TVS Jupiter are present due to their immense success in the Indian market.

With the exception of the TVS Jupiter, we decided to pit the highest-spec models of the scooters against one another for this comparison. We’ve chosen to compare the ZX Smart Xonnect version of Jupiter because the Classic has a more retro-oriented design language and a straightforward analogue display despite being the most costly Jupiter model.

Hero Xoom VS Competitors: Engine and Output

  Hero Xoom Honda Dio Honda Activa TVS Jupiter
Engine Air-cooled, 110.9cc, single-cylinder Air-cooled, 109.5cc, single-cylinder Air-cooled, 109.5cc, single-cylinder Air-cooled, 109.7cc, single-cylinder
Power 8.15hp at 7,250rpm 7.8hp at 8,000rpm 7.8hp at 8,000rpm 7.9hp at 7,500rpm
Torque 8.7 Nm at 5,750rpm 9 Nm at 4,750rpm 8.9 Nm at 5,000rpm 8.8 Nm at 5,500rpm

Since each scooter in this group is powered by a straightforward, 110cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine, their output ratings are all fairly comparable. Where Hero Xoom and TVS Jupiter excel is in the adoption of the start/stop technology specific to their respective brands, which should aid in improving fuel efficiency, particularly in heavy traffic, the Activa H-Smart gains some ground because it does away with the kick starter in favour of an electric start system, albeit the lesser models do not have this option. The Honda scooters also have an engine cutoff switch and a silent start system. The TVS Jupiter includes the latter as well.

Hero Xoom VS Competitors: Suspension & Brakes

Suspension (r) Monoshock Monoshock Monoshock Monoshock
Brakes (f) 190mm disc 130mm drum Drum 220mm disc

Tyres (r) 100/80-12 90/100-10 90/100-10 90/90-12

The Hero Xoom scooter has 12-inch wheels on both ends, whereas the TVS Jupiter is the first of this group of 110cc scooters to do so. In fact, the 100-section rear tyre on the Xoom is the biggest among all. With a telescopic fork/mono-shock system, they all use similar strategies in the suspension department. Honda’s first 110cc scooter with alloy wheels is the Activa H-Smart; however, the Dio still has steel wheels, and none of the 110cc scooters from Honda is available with a front disc brake, not even as an option.

Hero Xoom VS Competitors: Weight & Dimensions

  Hero Xoom Honda Dio Honda Activa TVS Jupiter
Kerb weight 109 kg 105 kg 105 kg 109 kg
Seat height 770mm 765 mm 712-765 mm 765 mm
Wheelbase 1300mm 1260mm 1260mm 1275mm
Fuel capacity 5.2 litres 5.3 litres 5.3 litres 5.1 litres
Ground clearance 155mm 160mm 162mm 163mm

Both the Xoom and the Jupiter weigh 109 kg, which is 4 kg more than the Honda pair, but even so, these scooters aren’t very terrifying. The weight of the Activa H-Smart is one kilogramme less than that of the other two models, making it comparable to the Dio. Jupiter has the tallest figure at 163mm, while Hero Xoom has the lowest ground clearance at 155mm. The fuel tanks on these scooters are all essentially the same size.

Hero Xoom VS Competitors: Value-Adding Features

The Hero Xoom, the newest competitor, features cornering lights, a digital dash with Bluetooth functionality, and Hero’s trademarked i3s stop/start technology. Other features include 90-degree valve stems, two sizable glove compartments with USB chargers at the front, and a boot light. However, the Hero lacks a very simple convenience like an external fuel cap, and you have to pull the key out of the ignition to unlock the boot. Keyless ignition is a special feature that the Activa H-Smart has, but it lacks the Dio DLX model’s digital dash. With a digital dash that is Bluetooth capable, TVS’ Intelligo stop/start technology, an external gasoline filling cap, a glovebox, and a USB charger, the Jupiter ZX SmartXonnect model appears to be the most well-rounded vehicle. Every scooter model compared here has an LED headlight and taillight.

Hero Xoom VS Competitors: Price Ranges

  Hero Xoom Honda Dio Honda Activa TVS Jupiter
Ex-Showroom Price in India Rs 68,599 – Rs 76,699 Rs 68,625 – Rs 72,626 Rs 74,536 – Rs 80,537 Rs 69,990 – Rs 86,263

Due to the introductory nature of these rates, the Hero Xoom will soon overtake the Honda Dio as the most affordable vehicle in this class. One of the more economical options here is the Honda Dio, which is also the most basic option because it doesn’t have amenities like alloy wheels or an optional front disc brake. The Activa line has the highest starting price range, and even at Rs 80,537, its H-Smart variant lacks features like a 12-inch rear tyre, a front disc brake, and a fully digital dash that are becoming more and more prevalent in the scooter market. The ZX SmartXonnect model we’ve reviewed here, which costs Rs 85,673 and is Rs 590 cheaper than the somewhat dated Jupiter Classic, is by far the least costly scooter in this firm. TVS Jupiter scooter is by far the most expensive among the rest. The initial price of the Jupiter, however, is comparable to that of the other two and significantly more inexpensive than that of the Activa.
