The Honda Navi two wheeler crossover which debuted at the Auto Expo has received a strong response form the customers so far. A mix of scooter and a motorcycle, the Navi targets urban youngsters.
In its latest sales report, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India has revealed that since the auto expo, the segment-creating two wheeler has received over 900 bookings. The Honda Navi Android app has been downloaded by 1,5000 users during the same period.
Priced attractively at INR 39,500 (Ex-showroom, Delhi), the Navi aims to take advantage of the booming automatic two wheeler market without repelling the motorcycle fans. The youthful runabout is powered by a 110 cc air-cooled 4-stroke engine that is lifted from the Active 3G. The HET (Honda Eco Technology) motor is tuned to produce 7.83 hp and 8.96 Nm of torque. The motor is mated to a CVT.
Due to its hybrid (scooter + motorcycle) architecture, the place where a conventional motorcycle engine will usually be is vacant and Honda has cleverly exploited it to offer storage solutions (available as a part of wide range accessories).
The Honda Navi is the Japanese two wheeler giant’s first product to be fully developed by the Indian subsidiary. Deliveries are slated to commence by April 2016.
