Honda has officially launched the 2018 Honda Navi .The moto-scooter comes with aesthetic changes which include body color for grab rail, rearview mirrors and headlight cover. Apart from this, Honda has also given red color for rear suspension springs to make it look sporty. One of the important feedbacks Honda received from its customers was the lack of fuel gauge, and the Japanese manufacturer has added fuel gauge in the new update. However, the new Navi gets only a small 3.5-litre fuel tank. The updated model also comes with metal muffler protector.
Honda has introduced two new colours on Navi – Ranger Green and Ladakh Brown. It is already available in six colours – Patriot Red, Shasta White, Black, Sparky Orange, Moroccan Blue and Citric Yellow
The moto-scooter is the first product completely designed by Honda R&D India from concept to production model. It was first introduced at 2016 Auto Expo. Initially, moto-scooter attracted lots of buyers and sales were really good as Honda managed to sell 50,000 units within 8 months of launch. But the initial sales did not long and sales began to come down. Due to low sales, Honda had to even offer Navi free with CBR 250R and 150R to clear BSIII stock .
Honda Navi is powered by same 110 cc engine from Activa producing 8 HP of power at 7,000 rpm and 8.96 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm. This engine is mated to V-Matic automatic gearbox and Navi can return 38 kmpl. The 2018 Honda Navi is priced at Rs. 44,775 (Ex-Showroom) and will go against the likes of Hero Pleasure and TVS Scooty Zest.
