Honda has updated the Navi scooter, that was first showcased at 2016 Auto Expo. It was officially launched in March 2016 and immediately shot to success as sales of the mini scooter reaching over the 50,000 milestone between March and October of that same year.
Sales did not stay at that level for long and dipped considerably in the later months with queues outside company showrooms down to a trickle. The company has now brought in an updated model which is sure to garner some attention with added features and new accessories. Price is Rs. 44,775 (ex-showroom Delhi).
The new Honda Navi will sport a fuel gauge. This will be a welcome change since the Navi sports only a 3.8 liter fuel tank. It will also receive a refreshed instrument cluster consisting of a digital and analogue unit, new paint schemes and refreshed graphics. Apart from these cosmetic changes, the Navi will also be seen with support luggage, enhanced illumination and other styling elements. The Navi will be based on the same platform but will come in with enhanced power output and better mileage along with new color options.
Updates include – fuel gauge and metal muffler protector, all new body coloured elements- grab rail, headlight cover, rear view mirrors and sporty red colour cushion spring, two new vibrant colours – Ranger Green and Ladakh Brown.
The Honda Navi is developed at the company’s R&D division. It sports the same 110cc four stroke engine seen on the Honda Activa offering 7.7 bhp power and 9 Nm torque mated to a CVT automatic gearbox.
Speaking on the occasion Mr. Yadvinder Singh Guleria – Senior Vice President, 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 notch higher. Along with the convenience value addition like stylish fuel gauge and muffler protector, new vibrant colors 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.”
