Launched: 2018 Honda Navi
Updates add a little bit of convenience and plenty of style
Honda has launched an updated version of its quirky Navi scooter in India, for Rs 44,775 (ex-showroom, Delhi). While nothing has changed mechanically, a few features have been added and they have tweaked the way it looks.
The most significant change is the addition of a fuel gauge – something that was sorely missed on the previous Navi. Another change is the addition of a metal muffler protector. In addition to all this, there are new body coloured bits like the grab rail, headlight cover, rearview mirrors and even the monoshock’s spring is red. The Navi is now available with two new paint options – Ranger Green and Ladakh Brown.
Yadvinder Singh Guleria - Senior VP, sales and marketing, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Pvt. Ltd. said, “In the diverse Indian two-wheeler market, Navi stands out firmly with its unique fun proposition. The trendy Navi is a style statement for the youth and the new 2018 upgrades take it a notch higher. Along with the convenience value addition like a stylish fuel gauge and muffler protector, new vibrant colours offer an extra zing for those who have an appetite for uniqueness. We will continue to surprise our customers and add more fun for the riders.”
A 109cc engine that makes 8bhp and 8.6Nm powers the Honda Navi. With USD telescopic forks up front and a monoshock at the rear, it makes for a surprisingly fun alternative to a 100c motorcycle and even a scooter. It even gets plenty of personalization options to add even more flair to the package.
