India's very own mini-scooter, the Honda Navi was launched at the 2016 Auto Expo. Since its launch, the bike maker has sold over 1 lakh units that are an achievement in itself. However, the model took two and a half years to attain this milestone. It is the only model available in this moto-scooter segment and highly appreciated among the audience owing to its distinct, funkier design language. Not only in India, but also in exports countries the scooter is in demand. Holding a firm grip on 10 countries, the monkey bike Navi gets two more countries like the Dominican Republic and Costa Rica in its export market list. Here in this post, we are going to tell five reasons to purchase Honda Navi. They are as follows:
The first and a pretty significant reason is its design language. The Navi draws its design inspiration from Honda Grom available on sale in the global market. It is a unique product that makes you stand apart from the crowd. Rolling out such offbeat product was a risk for the brand, however, the Navi had succeeded in meeting the expectations of the brand by attaining 1 lakh units milestone in just two and half years of duration.
Built around the underbone skeleton, the Honda Navi mounts on telescopic front forks and spring loaded hydraulic at the rear. Other than this, its riding posture is upright and the company offers along well-padded seat which in association with such cycle parts conveys a comfortable ride on any road conditions. Also, it is crossover which uses the only throttle as like automatic scooters which end up the hassle of gear shifting during traffic conditions.
Power and mileage:
it is powered by a 109 cc single-cylinder engine shared from the brand’s most selling scooter, the Activa. Known for its power and performance efficient engine, this Activa engine develops the maximum power of 7.89 bhp at 7,000 rpm and peak torque of 8.96 Nm at 5,500 rpm via a mated CVT transmission.
Cheapest in Price:
Priced at INR 48,052 on-road Delhi, the Honda Navi is an affordable choice as compared to scooters available in the market. It offers the similar power, performance and mileage of the Activa. Altogether, riding a Navi is like treating self with exclusivity. In my eyes, at the mentioned price tag, it is a better option for those who demand something unique and out of leak thing.
Well, in its mini-scooter segment, Honda Navi is a lone runner. However, it sees competition with the scooters available in the similar price range like Honda Cliq and more. Later in future, we can see automakers like Hero, TVS and Suzuki could bring their such distinct product in order to pose a threat against the Navi as it is an exclusive product in the mini-scooter segment.
