Honda Motorcycles & Scooters India (HMSI) recently announced that their Navi offering has crossed sales figures of over 1 lakh units. The Honda Navi was first launched at the Auto Expo in 2016. The Navi is also the first indigenously developed two-wheeler by Honda India's R&D Department.
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).
The new Navi comes with a host of cosmetic updates. These include new body coloured elements such as grab rails, headlight covers and rearview mirrors. The 2018 Navi also comes with a new fuel gauge, metal muffler protector and a sporty red cushion spring.
The 2018 Honda Navi is also available in two new colour schemes: Range Green and Ladakh Brown. Apart from the new paint schemes, the Navi also offers a range of customisable options and accessories.
Yadvinder Singh Guleria, Senior VP, Sales and Marketing, HMSI Pvt. Ltd., stated, "The trendy Navi is a style statement and trendsetter for the youth. The unconventional design, looks and endless possibilities of customization has helped us to engage young 2Wheeler enthusiasts not only in India, but around the world. They all are enjoying the Navi fun ride & exploring unique customisation options."
The new 2018 Honda Navi continues to be powered by the same engine, sourced from the popular Activa scooter offering. This is a 109cc, four-stroke, single-cylinder engine producing 8bhp and 9Nm of torque.
The Honda Navi rides on 12-inch and 10-inch tubeless tyres at the front and rear, respectively. While the suspension is handled by telescopic forks at the front and a monoshock at the rear.
Thoughts On The One Lakh Sales Of The Honda Navi
Honda updated the funky two-wheeler offering in July. The new Honda Navi now offers a range of updates and cosmetic changes, though it remains mechanically unchanged. Honda hopes that the positive response to the updated version continues. The company has targeted their Navi offering towards a younger audience, with its funky design and customisable options.
