Honda before the Auto Expo had began teasing about a new fun product which would change the way India looks at two-wheelers. In came the Honda Navi. The company had earlier announced that deliveries will begin in Mumbai in the last fiscal itself. So how are things after a month?
Navi is now being delivered in 7 cities as a part of phase 1. These include Delhi, Gurgaon, Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore, Ahmedabad and Chennai. Sales have reached the 5,000 mark. Not ground-breaking these but are decent for an unconventional product.
Navi is powered by the same 109.19 cc HET mill from the Activa producing 8 bhp of power and 8.96 Nm of torque. The figures may not seem much but a city tarmac eater, with its light weight body can be a boon for short commutes.
In a boring world of automatic scooters, Navi brings in some freshness with its unconventional looks. It also offers a bulk of customisation options which can make your ride carry your style.
Honda also recorded a 26 per cent growth in terms of domestic sales on a year on year basis. The numbers stood at 4,13,971 units in the month of April 16. That’s a gain of over 90,000 units over April 15 sales.
