Harley-Davidson and Hero teamed up and unveiled the H-D X440 motorcycle last year. The H-D X440 is the most affordable Harley bike globally.

The company’s Xoom 160 and Xoom 125R will enter the premium scooter segment. The Xoom 160 has a maxi scooter design, and it comes equipped with large 14-inch wheels. It is powered by a 156-cc air-cooled, single-cylinder engine that is mated to an automatic transmission unit. In the premium scooter market, the Xoom 160 will rival the likes of the Yamaha Aerox 155 and the Aprilia SXR 160.
