Commenting on the sales achievement, Yadvinder Singh Guleria, senior vice president, sales and marketing, HMSI, said, “The trendy Navi is a style statement and trendsetter for the youth. The unconventional design, looks and endless possibilities of customisation has helped us to engage young two-wheeler enthusiasts not only in India, but around the world. They all are enjoying the Navi’s fun ride and also exploring its unique customisation options.” Read – Upcoming Honda Bikes & Scooters In India
In July 2018 the bikemaker introduced the 2018 model year of the mini scooter with subtle cosmetic upgrades and two new colour schemes – Ranger Green and Ladakh Brown. Honda claims that the Navi offers agility of a bike and comfort of a scooter. Interestingly, it’s the first indigenously developed two-wheeler by Honda India’s R&D department.
At the heart of the 2018 Honda Navi is the same BSIV-compliant 109.19cc, 4-stroke air-cooled SI engine that’s good enough for 12bhp at 7,000rpm and 8.96Nm of torque at 5,5000rpm. This powertrain is benefited with Honda Eco Technology and paired to a V-Matic gearbox. The mini scooter runs on tubeless tyres, and makes use of the upside-down telescopic forks up front and a hydraulic monoshock rear suspension for damping duties.
