The model was discontinued earlier, however, Honda has brought it back to the market with the new safety updates. The addition of CBS is mandatory for all two-wheelers below 125cc, as part of the new upcoming safety norms from 1st April 2019.
The CBS tech on two-wheelers activates both the front and rear brakes, even with a single pressed lever. The result is shorter braking distance and reduced chances of the two-wheeler skidding, during hard braking.
The new Honda Navi remains almost unchanged from the previously available models, apart from the additional CBS feature. The funky design two-wheeler offering from Honda Motorcycles India was to attract young customers towards the brand and the product. However, the Navi failed to impress at the market.
The Honda Navi continues to be offered with a number of customisable options; making it both funkier and practical. It continued to be powered by the same 110cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine borrowed from the Activa scooter. The engine produces 8bhp and 8.94Nm of torque and is mated to a CVT gearbox.
The Navi uses telescopic front forks and a monoshock at the rear. The funky two-wheeler rides on 12-inch and 10-inch tubeless tyres at the front and rear, respectively.
The Honda Navi was first showcased at the 2016 Auto Expo. It is the first two-wheeler product to be indigenously developed by Honda India's R&D department. The Navi crossed one lakh sales milestone in August last year. However, since then sales of the funky two-wheeler has gone down. Honda even registered zero sales for the Navi during the past couple of months.
The new Honda Navi is available in a range of six vibrant colout options - Ranger Green, Ladakh Brown, Orange, White, Black and Red. All these colour schemes are further available with a host graphics kit, among other range of customisable features and accessories.
Thoughts On The 2019 Honda Navi In India
Honda first launched the Navi in India back in 2016. Initially, the funky scooter received a good response in the market, however, after the initial hype reduced, Navi struggled to get consistent sales. Honda even discontinued the model, a couple of months back due to low sales. However, they have now introduced it back in the market. It will be interesting to see if the Navi will be further updated once the BS-VI norms come into effect.
