The Navi from Honda grabbed skewed attention at the Auto Expo 2016 for its quirky looks that combine comfort of a scooter and ruggedness of a motorcycle. Initially confused as a bike, Navi, is a scooter at heart based on the popular model in the 110cc segment-Honda Activa. To reinforce its funky character, Honda has added a number of new elements to it like the tall handlebar, the edgy fuel tank cover, bold headlight etc. Navi is by far the boldest product from Honda India that targets the youth, looking for a funky two-wheeler as their daily commuting vehicle.
The Navi comes with two more special editions – Adventure and Chorme. The Navi Adventure features a slightly rugged and outdoorsy styling with handguards, a flyscreen, a brown colour theme and a bashplate of sorts as well. Honda also offers other customisation options for the Navi in the form of storage compartments and so on. The Adventure Kit of the mini bike comes with an additonal cost of Rs. 8525.
The second special edition, Chrome, as the name suggests, features chrome panels on the body, which adds to the bling factor and rest everything remains the same. The Chrome Kit comes with an additonal cost of Rs. 5065.
It’s been a year since the Navi was first unveiled at the 2016 Auto Expo and was officially launched in April 2016. Gathering abundant bookings post its launch, Honda Motorcycle and Scooters India decided to almost double the production of Navi in a bid to meet demand. An amalgamation of scooter and motorcycle, Honda Navi price was tagged at Rs 39.500 at the time of launch which witnessed slight change in the following months.
