Honda Cliq vs. Honda Navi – Spec sheet & Pictorial comparison
Neelanjan Chakraborty, Motorcycle Nut, will ride, preferably race anything on two wheels!
Honda Cliq is 1 kg heavier than the Honda Navi.
The Honda Cliq is based on the Honda Navi Design Concept 1 showcased at the 2016 Auto Expo. While the Honda Navi is an urban and fun two-wheeler that has the youngest customer base for Honda in India (late teens and early twenties riders), the utilitarian Honda Cliq tries to disrupt the semi-urban and rural segment where users are taking to entry-level motorcycles like the Hero Splendor and the Passion.
The Honda Cliq emphasises on versatility with its wide seat for optimum comfort for the rider and pillion. The load carrying facility has been increased by the footboard, underseat storage and an additional carrier in the rear that is an option. The Honda Navi only gets an optional box case and an optional carrier in the rear. The front apron in the Honda Cliq also helps protect the rider from windblast.

The powerplant in the Honda Navi and Honda Cliq is the existing 109.19 cc air-cooled mill mated to a V-Matic gearbox. The engine is capable of producing 8 bhp of maximum power and 8.94 Nm of peak torque. The Honda Navi gets 2 mm of extra ground clearance, but the Honda Cliq has a lower seat height of 743 mm (Navi stands at 765 mm).
The Honda Cliq misses out on a front telescopic fork and is shod with smaller 10-inch rims at both ends. Navi gets a 12-inch front wheel. However, the first-in-segment block pattern tyres are expected to be more versatile by providing extra grip in all terrain. The Honda Cliq also gets the safety net of Honda’s Combined Braking System with Equalizer.
The Honda Cliq has been priced at INR 42,990 for the entry level trim while the Honda Navi starts at INR 42,063 (both prices ex-showroom, Jaipur).
