The Navi is a blend between a scooter and a motorcycle. When launched in 2016, the funky two-wheeler, sold well and was always among the top-ten selling scooters in the country. However, the initial hype for the Navi eventually died out. Sales of the Honda Navi reduced to a point of zero sales a couple of months ago.

Keeping this in mind, Honda recently launched the updated 2018 version of the Navi in July this year. The new Navi comes with a price tag of Rs 44,775, ex-showroom (Delhi).
