This allowed the Navi to break into the top-10 selling list for scooters in India with overall sales of 11,644 units. The quirky styling, ease of use being an automatic and the fact that it has been priced at just Rs 39,648 (ex-showroom Delhi) seems to have worked for the Honda Navi in attracting its target youngsters.The Honda Navi a desirable runabout for daily errands, quick dash to college and a lot more.
Given the rise in demand for the Navi, Honda Company also had doubled its production for the minibike. The engine on the Navi is the same 110cc unit as seen on the Activa producing 8PS of max power and 9Nm. The Navi gets a 3.8-litre fuel tank and has a claimed mileage of 60kmpl.
