Hero MotoCorp on Monday launched Xoom, a 110cc scooter with corner-bending lights, bigger tyres and sporty look, to build its presence in a segment where it has just about seven per cent share in terms of unit sales.

Hero's former partner, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI), dominates the scooter segment, primarily due to Activa that is available with 110cc engine as well as 125 cc engine. HMSI owns about half of the scooter segment. Hero, on the other hand, is the market leader in the motorcycle segment with about 46 per cent share.

Scooter sales saw a significant growth
